CBS News is Expanding Its 24/7 Live News Coverage Free on Pluto TV & Other Apps





Paramount this week announced that CBS News would be expanding its live 24/7 news coverage. Now you will find even more news for free on Pluto TV and other apps.

Starting on April 22, CBS News will expand its free 24/7 news and rename the CBSA Streaming Network to CBS News 24/7. With this move CBS will also be launching new programming to help giving it more of a 24/7 live fee and look.

“CBS News 24/7 is a decidedly ambitious evolution of our streaming efforts,” said Wendy McMahon, president and CEO of CBS News & Stations and CBS Media Ventures. “Data backs up our bet on a fresh, timely, and distinctive approach to breaking news and live coverage. Our audiences crave it, and we’re in the best position to deliver it.”

These new shows include a live newscast named “CBS News 24/7.” CBS alsy says it will launch a first-of-its-kind overnight show called “CBS News Roundup,” and “CBS News Confirmed,” a show that will examine misinformation. CBS will also expand some shows with “America Decides” moving from a half-hour to an hour and will extend John Dickerson’s newly renamed show, “The Daily Report with John Dickerson,” to 90 minutes later this spring. 

“Our commitment is to mirror on the stream the same level of world-class reporting and analysis that CBS News viewers expect from our television broadcasts,” said CBS News president Ingrid Ciprian-Matthews. “The expansion of John Dickerson’s program, ‘America Decides,’ and the upcoming ‘CBS News Confirmed’ show are just a few of the ways in which we are driving the next generation of viewers to this high-quality reporting that sets CBS News apart.”

Here is how CBS describes these shows:

CBS News 24/7

This live newscast, debuting in June, will be the backbone of the stream’s 24/7 promise, offering best-in-class storytelling, on-the-ground reporting and a behind-the-scenes look at how coverage comes together. State-of-the-art AR/VR technology will add to the experience, providing context, clarity and accuracy. 

The Daily Report with John Dickerson

“Prime Time with John Dickerson” becomes “The Daily Report with John Dickerson” on April 22 and moves to a new timeslot, airing from 6 to 7 p.m. ET. The show, hosted by CBS News’ chief political analyst and senior national correspondent, delivers the latest headlines and live, in-depth reporting to viewers Monday through Thursday. “The Daily Report” will expand to 90 minutes later this spring.

America Decides

Starting April 22, CBS News’ streaming politics show “America Decides” expands to an hour. “America Decides,” which will air from 5 to 6 p.m. ET, goes beyond the top political headlines of the day, offering context and fact-based analysis. 

CBS News Roundup

Debuting later this spring, this overnight news show will feature up-to-the minute news, plus the best and latest storytelling from CBS News & Stations correspondents and reporters. “CBS News Roundup” will stream on CBS News 24/7 at 1 a.m. ET and will air on CBS television stations at 2 a.m. ET (check local listings).

CBS News Confirmed

CBS News Confirmed is a new cross-platform unit dedicated to combating misinformation. Later this summer, the team will debut a streaming program that will help viewers differentiate fact from fiction.
