CBS Sports HQ

Today, CBS launched CBS Sports HQ, a new sports-focused streaming network meant to be complementary to CBS Sports and CBS Sports Network programming. The 24-hour, free streaming network will feature sports news, game previews, highlights and post-game analysis and is accessible through a number of platforms at launch. Along with being able to jump into live programming, CBS Sports HQ visitors will also be able go back and watch previous segments with the network's DVR-like functionality.

CBS announced plans for a 24/7 sports streaming channel last year and it now joins the network's other streaming offerings, including its subscription service CBS All Access and its 24/7 news streaming network CBSN. The company says that CBS Sports HQ is based on CBSN's model and infrastructure. Today's launch comes ahead of ESPN's standalone streaming service, ESPN Plus, which is scheduled to launch this spring.

CBS Sports announcers and reporters will also appear on CBS Sports HQ programming. Anchors for the new network's sports coverage include Jorge Andres, Dalen Cuff, Jenny Dell, Hakem Dermish, Jamie Erdahl, Chris Hassel, Casey Kiernan and Nick Kostos. Analysts include Raja Bell, Carlos Boozer, Jim Bowden, Rashad Evans, Rip Hamilton, Danny Kanell, Brady Quinn, Thomas Rongen and David Samson. You can see a full list of who will be involved in network coverage here. CBS Sports HQ is currently available on CBSSports.com, the CBS Sports app, CBSN and CBS All Access.
