As part of the ongoing integration of CSTV into CBS Sports, the network will be renamed the CBS College Sports Network
in order to tie in with the parent network's coverage of the NCAA Basketball Tournament (and the network's airing of several games during the opening round in addition to CBS). The graphical styling of the network changed to that of CBS Sports, and set changes will also be instituted. However, the studio shows are still based at Chelsea Piers, and did not move to the CBS Broadcast Center or to another location in Manhattan. One original program scheduled that airs as part of changes being made at the network is a twice-nightly sports news program entitled College Sports Tonight.
Additional program notes
CBS College Sports did not begin producing HD programming until August 2008. The two NCAA tourney games in 2008, which were in HD on CBS, were converted to a standard definition feed.
College Sports Tonight resumed from their summer recess September 3rd, 2008, and airs currently from Wednesday through Saturday at 7 PM and (depending if there is an event) 10 PM or 11 PM ET. The anchors are Greg Amsinger, Adam Zucker, Kevin Dunn and Dara McIntosh.
Since airing that first game, CBS College Sports Network has televised thousands of hours of original programming, features, talk shows and documentaries as well as extensive women’s sports coverage. Its regular season and championship event coverage draws from every major collegiate athletic conference and division, in addition to nine NCAA championships. CBS College Sports Network televises 35 men’s and women’s college sports including football, basketball, baseball, Ultimate Frisbee, hockey, lacrosse, soccer, wrestling and volleyball from every major conference. The network holds multi-media and marketing rights for the Mountain West Conference, the Atlantic 10 Conference, Conference USA, the Big West Conference, the Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) and Navy athletics.
CBS College Sports Network is available on cable systems across the country, including Comcast, Time Warner, Cox, Cablevision, Charter, Insight, Bright House Networks, Mediacom, RCN, Advanced Cable and Bresnan. It is also available on DirecTV's Total Choice Premier Package Channel 613 and Dish Network's America's Top 120 Package Channel 152.
In the fall of 2006, CSTV launched more than 100 broadband channels dedicated to college sports, which feature more than 10,000 live events. The subscription/pay-per-view service, called CBS College Sports XXL, and its portfolio of broadband channels in its All-Access suite, include coverage of Notre Dame, Southern California, Kansas, Ohio State and North Carolina.
