Current statusActive (formerly CBS and SportsLine USA) is an American sports news website operated by Paramount Streaming, a division of Paramount Global. It is the website for CBS' Sports division featuring news, highlights, analysis, and fantasy sports.



In 1997, the service entered into a content-sharing partnership with Viacom. SportsLine also entered into agreements to operate official websites for the NCAA, NFL, and PGA Tour. The company later launched a co-branded website for CBS Sports (then owned by Viacom), CBSSportsLine[1]

CBS purchase[edit]

In August 2004, already holding a 38% stake in the company, Viacom announced that it would acquire the remainder of SportsLine in a deal valued at $46 million ($1.75 per-share) and re-align it with the CBS Sports division (owing to Viacom's ownership of CBS at the time).[1][2] The company originally operated as a division of CBS Sports, reporting to its president Sean McManus.

Fantasy Sports[edit] started producing fantasy sports games in 1997. In 1998, they partnered with Daedalus Worldwide Corporation, a producer of online fantasy sports products. In 1999, they acquired Daedalus Worldwide Corporation.

In August 2015, the SportsLine brand was revived for a new subscription-based site featuring statistics, sports betting and handicapping content. CBS continues to own the site.[3]
