By NewscastStudio

CBSN Philly has officially launched, becoming the six localized version of the OTT service to rollout so far.

Co-located with KYW in Philadelphia, the service augments the channel’s regular newscasts with breaking news coverage and live streams.

“It is very exciting to reach the mid-point of the rollout of our CBSN Local services with today’s launch of CBSN Philly,” said Peter Dunn, President, CBS Television Stations.

“We have learned so much during our five previous launches and now have the structure in place to accelerate our rollout plan and go live in all of our markets within the next few months.”

CBSN New York started the CBSN Local launch in December 2018, followed by Los Angeles, Boston, San Francisco and just last month Minnesota.

CBSN Pittsburgh is expected to debut in February.

CBSN is produced by CBS Television Stations and CBS Interactive.
