About PBS

PBS Plus is a syndicated programming service for public television stations, supplementing the primetime, daily news, and children’s content in the National Program Service, providing series and specials intended for various dayparts. All PBS member stations, reaching all available national TV households, have access to PBS Plus content. Annually, stations are provided with approximately 500 hours of programming via PBS Plus.

PBS Plus seeks general-audience programs with national and regional appeal that supplement PBS's National Program Service for primetime programming. PBS Plus series and specials range from "how-to" programs such as This Old House and PBS Food series such as Martha Bakes to topical news and information programs and arts and cultural shows such as Austin City Limits and Bluegrass Underground. PBS Plus also seeks out content that embraces our country's cultural diversity through heritage documentaries and holiday celebration programs. Half-hour lifestyle series in the food, home improvement, and other lifestyle genres are also a content priority.
