And Pittsburgh makes No. 8 for CBSN.
CBSN, which is CBS’ free streaming news service, has expanded to Pennsylvania with its eighth local launch—CBSN Pittsburgh—which went live today. Local versions of CBSN are rolling out in 13 markets, all by the end of this year.
CBS, now ViacomCBS, became the first major media company to launch a local OTT news service when CBSN New York debuted in December 2018. Since then, the company has rolled CBSN Los Angeles, CBSN Boston, CBSN San Francisco Bay Area, CBSN Minnesota, CBSN Philly and CBSN Denver.
Following today’s launch of CBSN Pittsburgh, CBSN Chicago is expected to make its debut later this month.
After that, we’ll soon see CBSN Dallas-Ft. Worth, followed by CBSN Miami, CBSN Sacramento and CBSN Baltimore.
