CBSN’s 24/7 streaming news now available to Australia and New Zealand audiences on more platforms


The CBS News app featuring CBSN, the 24/7 free live streaming news service, is now available in Australian and New Zealand app stores on Amazon Fire TV, Android™, Android TV™, Chromecast and Chromecast built-in devices, LG Smart TVs, and more.

The availability of the app follows CBS News App’s expansion across 89 countries. Now, viewers in countries including Argentina, Australia, Brazil, mainland China and Hong Kong SAR (China), France, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, South Korea, the United Kingdom and more have the option of watching CBSN from the CBS News app, on platforms and streaming devices where it is available regionally, in addition to streaming from the web on desktop and mobile devices. This expansion gives the global audience even more access to trusted reporting on international and U.S. news, including the latest information on protests taking place across the country and the world, the COVID-19 pandemic and non-partisan coverage of the upcoming U.S. presidential election.

“Our research shows that there is global demand for CBS News’ reporting on issues and events that impact everyone,”

– said Christy Tanner, Executive Vice President & General Manager, CBS News Digital.

“With CBSN’s expanded availability in international app stores we can now deliver vital, in-depth coverage on urgent and pivotal news events to more viewers in more places.”

CBSN, which has always been free on web browsers globally, will continue to expand availability as the CBS News app launches in additional international app stores in the months to come, meeting international consumer demand for trusted information on the 2020 presidential election and issues impacting global populations. Viewers worldwide will be able to tune-in to CBSN’s coverage of crucial political events including the upcoming Republican and Democratic national conventions, and November’s presidential election, as well as CBSN mainstay programming including the CBSN Originals documentary series, the daily politics show “Red & Blue,” and the “Climate Watch” franchise.
