Quick Look: CBS Sports HQ, a replacement for the old CBS Sports channel on Roku, is a 24-hour streaming sports news channel that provides news, highlights, and analysis for all major sports. Depending on the season, this includes NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, PGA golf, NCAA football, NCAA basketball, soccer, MMA, boxing, and more.
Don't look for any live full-event broadcasts, though. Similar in concept to ESPN SportsCenter, CBS SPORTS HQ provides live, anchored coverage that includes game breakdowns and covers the day's top sports stories. In addition to topic-specific stories, recurring segments include News in 90, Headlines, Morning Trends, and HQ Refresh.
The Roku channel also provides video on demand that lets you watch any segment from the last hour or so, along with recent "Top Videos" and videos categorized for specific sports. The categories are limited, however; currently, they include only NFL, NBA, and College Basketball, with no categories for other in-season sports like golf or NASCAR.
The CBS SPORTS HQ channel is free to all Roku users, with no pay TV subscription required. In addition to Roku, CBS SPORTS HQ is available on Amazon Fire TV, Google ChromeCast, and Apple TV. The live feed can also be streamed through the CBS Sports mobile app for iOS and Android, and through Roku's standalone CBS News and CBS All Access channels. You can also watch the live stream and recent segments at cbssports.com
