For the second week in a row YouTube TV has added more PBS stations to their lineup. After being announced in July, in December 2019 PBS Kids and PBS are live on YouTube TV in select markets. PBS said at the time more than 100 PBS stations are now live on YouTube TV. Later YouTube TV confirmed that more PBS stations would be added in 2020 and now that has happened.
Slowly over the last few weeks, PBS has started to add additional PBS Stations in select markets. Did you notice a new PBS station? Leave us a comment and let us know what you saw.
“Every year, more and more households are seeking alternative ways to view their favorite PBS programs,” said PBS Chief Digital and Marketing Officer Ira Rubenstein. “PBS is committed to making trusted content available to all households across as many platforms as possible. We are pleased that YouTube TV recognizes public television’s unique structure and worked with us to provide our viewers with more ways to watch the programs that they love through their local PBS station.”
PBS did say that not all locals will be added at the same time. Like with most local TV stations, we will see PBS affiliates slowly being added in the weeks and months to come.
