PBS will stream live for the first time with YouTube TV
It’s a wonderful kind of day for fans of PBS, as they’ll be able to pay to stream a live, online feed of PBS for the first time later this year, via YouTube TV. The news was announced today at the Television Critics Association’s (TCA) summer Press Tour.
While you could already stream episodes of some PBS shows on the channel’s website or through a PBS Video app, some of them live, YouTube TV will have live access to the entire channel, including all 330 PBS member stations that choose to participate, including PBS Kids channels. The channels can also be accessed through YouTube TV’s VOD and unlimited DVR storage service, and will be available later this year. At $49.99 per month, the service offers live TV from over 70 networks.
