CBS Launches Local Market Streaming Service in Los Angeles

CBS has launched CBSN Los Angeles — an extension to their free ad-supported CBSN streaming service. CBSN Los Angeles will add anchored news coverage and live breaking news events from the Los Angeles market. The streaming channel will feature live streams of KCBS and KCAL’s daily newscasts, as well as exclusive newscasts at 7:00 AM and 1:00 PM.

CBSN which first started streaming in November 2014 is a 24/7 streaming news service from CBS News and CBS Interactive that delivers live national and global news coverage. CBSN launched local streaming in New York in December, and expected to launch in San Francisco and Boston later this year. The focus has been markets where CBS has owned-and-operated affiliates.

CBS has been aggressive in trying to reach cord cutters on new platforms. Besides CBSN, the company has also launched CBS Sports HQ for sports fan and ET Live for entertainment junkies. The company also has CBS All Access — which brings live access to your local CBS affiliate, original shows, and on demand access to CBS primetime programming.
