"Probably America's finest TV channel"

i newspaper

Welcome to PBS America, the new British television channel from America's Public Broadcasting Service, available 24 hours a day, on Sky channel 534, Virgin Media 276 and now Freesat 160.

PBS is America's largest classroom, the United States' largest stage for the arts and valued window on the world. Loved for its quality output since 1969, PBS is a private, non-profit corporation funded by donations, which has been rated America's most trusted institution for more than 10 consecutive years.

Here in the UK, PBS America showcases all of PBS's best-loved and award-winning factual strands - including NOVA (science), FRONTLINE (current affairs) and AMERICAN EXPERIENCE (history) - alongside epic series from legendary storyteller Ken Burns including Jazz, The West and the remastered The Civil War.

Run by a British team based in London, PBS America marries the best new shows with treasures hand-picked from PBS's extensive archive to offer British viewers a different view of America.

"American television has so much more to offer a British audience. Nowhere is this more apparent than on PBS."
