CBSN Los angeles is a streaming video news channel operated by the CBS News and CBS Interactive divisions of ViacomCBS, which launched on November 6, 2014 in order to provide live streaming world news. CBSN is designed primarily as an online-oriented service; it is distributed solely through the website, mobile apps, and via apps for digital media player devices such as Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, and Roku, rather than traditional platforms such as television, broadcast or otherwise. Since September 21, 2015, some CBSN segments are repurposed on the CBS television network as part of CBS Overnight News.

Programming cbsn los angeles

According to Moonves, CBSN is designed primarily to leverage the resources of CBS News and other CBS-owned entities to «create exciting, highly competitive new services that meet evolving audience preferences for content consumption»; viewers can watch CBSN live as a linear service, or watch previous segments on-demand.

CBSN features anchored programming on weekdays from 5:00 a.m. to midnight Eastern Time (ET). The service draws content from CBS News along with other CBS properties, such as CBS Sports, CNET, Entertainment Tonight, and CBS affiliated television stations. It airs a looping broadcast of the CBS Morning News from 5:00 to 7:00 a.m. ET, morning show CBSN AM from 7:00 to 8:00 a.m.

ET, and segments from CBS This Morning Monday through Saturday at 8:00 a.m. ET, one hour after the live East Coast television broadcast. CBSN also features the CBS Milestone segments, showcasing classic stories and interviews from CBS News programs such as Face the Nation. Both Face the Nation and CBS News Sunday Morning are carried on the channel in their entirety on a half-hour delay from the East Coast network feed and again during the West Coast late morning hours. Although marketed as featuring live programming, CBSN primarily uses hour-long «news wheels» updated throughout the day, but recorded programs can be interrupted to cover of breaking news and live events when needed. (The CBSN Local services maintain a similar programming structure.)
