CBS Sports HQ launches on Apple TV

CBS launched and released the CBS Sports HQ app on Apple TV Monday, a 24-hour streaming sports news network offering news, highlights and analysis.

Similiar in layout and style to the Sky Sports News channel in the UK, the new digital network gives viewers the flexibility to control what they watch with DVR-like functionality that allows them to watch previous segments and jump back into live programming seamlessly.

CBS Sports HQ will be complementary to CBS Sports and CBS Sports Network programming. CBS Sports announcers and reporters will be involved in coverage, breaking news, analysis and previews.

The channel replicates the corporation’s model used to launch CBSN in November 2014, the 24/7 streaming news service from CBS News.

CBS announced the service back in October and announced it would be launching this month back on February 16th.
