CBS Sports HQ - free 24-hour sports streaming network

CBS Launches Free 24-Hour Sports Streaming Network CBS Sports HQ

CBS today launches a free 24-hour streaming sports news network as it seeks to capitalize further on the growing popularity of streaming services and viewing on mobile devices.

The new CBS Sports HQ will draw from the resources of CBS Sports and its various digital properties to deliver live news reports, game previews, post-game analysis, highlights and in-depth statistics to connected devices. The one thing it won’t offer: the ability to watch live games.

Like Disney’s planned ESPN Plus streaming service, CBS Sports HQ is viewed as “complementary” to the network’s existing sports programming — not one that would threaten to cannibalize TV viewership.

CBS Sports HQ debuts just in time for two highly anticipated sports events, the March Madness NCAA Basketball Tournament and the Masters Tournament in April.

At launch, it will be available on CBSSports.com, through the CBS Sports app for internet-connected TV devices such as Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV and Roku. It’ll also be available through the CBS Sports mobile app, as well as through the CBS All Access subscription streaming service.
I'm watching it on the Roku right now (it's the first option in the top row of the CBS Sports channel), and it's not half bad...a good mix of stories, a scores/standings column along the right side of the screen, and a news ticker along the bottom. There are commercial breaks, about as lengthy as they are on ESPN. It certainly beats watching news stories 90 seconds at a time in the rest of the CBS Sports channel.

As the article states, it's also available on Apple TV, Fire TV, Chromecast, and the CBS Sports smartphone/tablet app.

Kawhi Leonard's return and Tiger Woods' 12th place finish were the "lead" stories last night. The bit on Leonard was replayed after about 30 minutes.
