After rolling out a new over-the-top streaming service for sports fans in February 2018, CBS experienced substantial growth last year after fine-tuning its 24/7 offering.
CBS Sports HQ more than doubled its total number of streams by 112% in 2019. The service also witnessed similar growth in total minutes viewed, according to the network.
Meanwhile, unique users on dedicated OTT platforms like Roku or Apple TV jumped 171% year-over-year.
“The first year of CBS Sports HQ was about setting up the infrastructure and building out the team that can manage a 24/7 network,” said Jeff Gerttula, executive vice president & general manager of CBS Sports Digital. “The second year, we were able to do more with our content and provide stronger coverage around news events.”
