CBS considers live-stream of ‘Morning’ show

'Early Show' replacement may run simultaneous on Web and on-air

CBS is considering a plan to make its new ayemcast “CBS This Morning” available via Web streaming simultaneous with its live broadcast.

Eye insiders emphasized that no final decision has been made but it is under consideration. Live streaming of a regular network program would undoubtedly raise some hackles with CBS affiliates, because it could draw viewers away from local stations.

CBS would be able to restrict the stream by time zone, meaning that a viewer in Los Angeles would not be able to stream it until the show aired in its 7-9 a.m. slot on the West Coast.

This Morning” is set to replace “The Early Show” on Jan. 9. The show will be anchored by Charlie Rose, Gayle King, and Erica Hill.
