Couple relaxing in living room holding remote control and smilingCBS is trying to build off their success with CBS News, a free 24/7 news channel. Recently CBS announced plans for a free CBS Sports streaming service that will launch next year. Now CBS announces a third free streaming service called “Entertainment Tonight.”

The new service will be based on CBS hit show “Entertainment Tonight” and will bring 24/7 news on the world of entertainment.

“We’ve talked about next year launching a 24-hour entertainment news service based on our show ‘ET,’” Leslie Moonves said in a conversation with Variety‘s Cynthia Littleton.

CBS recently has been having great success with their CBS All Access and SHOWTIME streaming services. Now CBS is hoping to push that success with streaming into new markets that will focus more on ad-supported options.

“Our numbers now have exceeded over two million subs there,” on All Access, Moonves said. “Also over two million subs on Showtime OTT. We said we’d be at four [million] in the middle of next year between the two next year. We’re way over four ahead of schedule, so the plan is working.”

CBS has set no timeline for the release of Entertainment Tonight as a streaming service. For now we will have to wait and see when it launches.
