Starting today, 85% of American households who own a TV-connected device can now watch CBT News on the big screen in the comfort of their living rooms, offices, or even their dealership’s showroom. Viewers can access more than a decade’s worth of exclusive shows, including daily newscasts, panels with industry leaders, expert interviews, and in-depth guides on topics ranging from sales and marketing to fixed-ops and F&I, with only the press of a button.

With its entrance into the world of streaming, CBT News is also placing its guests, business partners, vendors, and experts in the spotlight.

CBT News is the first auto industry-related news organization to make the jump to streaming, advancing its effort to support the retail automotive sector that began in December 2012. 

“It’s been an honor to serve the dealership community for more than a decade,” stated co-founder and anchor Jim Fitzpatrick. “No other group of entrepreneurs is more tenacious and passionate than those in the retail automotive sector, and we’re proud to support them with content both on our own platform and now on streaming services everywhere.”

“By making our media library available on streaming services, we are furthering our vision to inform, educate, and connect retail automotive professionals across the globe,” added co-founder Bridget Fitzpatrick. “We are committed to serving dealers and their teams for many years to come.”
