A free streaming television service that’s gaining traction with cord-cutting consumers will now benefit from the debut of three additional channels.
Providing these channels is CBS Interactive — a message that the company set to merge with Viacom is intent on bringing its content to as many avenues as possible.
As of today, the trio of streaming-only offerings accessible via Pluto TV include ET Live, and live local news streams from CBSN New York and CBSN Los Angeles.
The offerings join existing CBS Interactive properties and extends a “longstanding” Pluto TV partnership with CBSN.
“CBS Interactive has long been an integral partner for Pluto TV,” said Pluto TV EVP and Chief Business Officer Jeff Shultz. “We are excited to continue to grow this relationship and extend new value to the Pluto TV audience together.”
ET Live is a 24/7 streaming network centered around the Entertainment Tonight brand.
CBSN New York was the first of CBS’s local direct-to-consumer streaming news services and features live streams of WCBS-2 and WLNY-55’s regularly scheduled newscasts and additional weekday one-hour newscasts at 7:00 AM, 1:00 PM and 7:00 PM. In addition, CBSN New York provides live continuous coverage of breaking news events.
CBSN Los Angeles’ daily lineup includes live streams of KCBS-2 and KCAL-9, regularly scheduled newscasts and additional weekday one-hour newscasts at 7:00 AM and 1:00 PM.
