1. What happened to PBS YOU?

Due to significant financial constraints, PBS made the difficult decision to end the PBS YOU service. Although PBS YOU enjoyed a wide audience on satellite and member stations, challenges in funding the channel's operations proved insurmountable. In a time of scarce financial resources for public television, PBS has been forced to reallocate monies toward other important educational initiatives.


2. Is PBS pulling back on its commitment to Education?

PBS remains committed to its educational mission, however, in a time of scarce financial resources for public television, we've concluded that we can now better serve that mission through other initiatives.


3. How can I watch the telecourses?

A few of the telecourses featured on PBS YOU will continue to be made available by local public television stations. Please check local listings to see if they are included in your area or visit TV Schedules.


4. Where can I find more information on discontinued telecourses?

For information on how to acquire courses previously available through PBS, please visit the course licensing contact chart.


5. Would my donation help bring back PBS YOU?

While your donations will be a great benefit to public television, many hundreds of thousands of dollars were spent each year simply to maintain the PBS YOU channel. Further investments would have been required to refresh the content on PBS YOU. We appreciate your financial support of public television, and hope you will continue to provide financial contributions to your local PBS member stations.


6. What programming will DIRECTV or DISH offer in place of PBS YOU?

As both DIRECTV and DISH Network are required by law to offer public interest programming to their customers, both providers will be replacing the PBS YOU channel assignment with alternative programming. The channels selected are entirely of DIRECTV/DISH Network's choosing, and have no association with PBS or its member stations.
