I recently "cut the cord" and no longer have cable at home, so no more instant news when I wanted it, until now.

CBS News recently updated their app and launched a live 24/7 streaming video news channel called CBSN, and it's pretty good.

CBSN features some top notch anchors and reporting from the entire CBS News team, and they even have analysis when needed, like for instance on "Super Tuesday" they had an entire panel of guests talking about the results.

So if you're looking for a news alternative on the go, or as a cord cutter at home, check out the CBS News app and CBSN. They have apps available for iOS, Android, AppleTV, Amazon FireTV and Roku.
