CBS has found a strong appetite for live content on its CBSN news channel.
Launched in November, the 24-7 ad-supported online streaming channel — with live anchors and on-demand video news — has been the top-ranked news outlet on Roku streaming video devices that connect to TVs, CBS announced Tuesday.
On average, viewers watched more than two hours per week on Roku. Overall, more than half of all CBSN streams (52%) were on connected TV devices, while 30% on personal computers and 17% on smartphones and tablets.
