This week PlayStation Vue quietly added a west coast feed of the Smithsonian Channel to their lineup for PlayStation Vue Core and higher subscribers. This comes just a few months after PlayStation Vue added an east coast feed of the Smithsonian Channel to their lineup helping expand the reach of the Smithsonian’s great lineup of shows and documentaries. The Smithsonian Channel is owned by CBS’s Showtime Channel and the Smithsonian Institution. This gives it access to the great storytelling staff at Showtime and the huge collection located at the Smithsonian.
Here is how they describe the channel:
Smithsonian Channel™ is where curiosity lives, inspiration strikes and wonders never cease. This is the place for awe-inspiring stories, powerful documentaries and amazing entertainment. As a joint venture, Smithsonian Channel combines the storytelling prowess of Showtime Networks with the unmatched resources and rich traditions of the Smithsonian Institution. We create award-winning programming that shines new light on popular genres such as: air and space, history, science, nature, and pop culture.
