CBS All Access, the network’s streaming service, is adding its 24/7 online news channel, CBSN, to its lineup.
CBSN, which launched in November 2014, will be added to All Access on Thursday, August 3. The channel provides live, anchored news coverage of the day’e events with occasional features and rebroadcasts from network staples such as CBS Morning News and the CBS Evening News.
CBS All Access, which costs $5.99 a month, also offers local CBS affiliates in select markets and on-demand programming that originally aired on the network or is owned by CBS.
While CBS All Access is available on multiple devices, including Roku and Amazon Fire TV, the network says CBSN will only be available starting this week on laptops and computers at CBS.com. CBS said the online news channel will be added to more devices in the fall.
CBS said today that CBSN will also soon be added to fuboTV, the sports-heavy live streaming service.
