Good news for PBS fans—they'll finally be able to stream live and on-demand feeds of their favorite PBS shows.


YouTube TV is giving subscribers access to a live feed of PBS, which includes PBS Kids channels (like favorites Daniel Tiger and Sesame Street), as well as all 330 participating PBS member stations.

While you can already stream select shows on YouTube and via the PBS Video app, this is the first time you'll have access to the entire channel.

"Our goal is to reach as many Americans as possible with content that educates, inspires and entertains," PBS chief digital and marketing officer Ira Rubenstein said. "As a broadcaster that is rooted in communities, we appreciate YouTube's commitment to local content, and we are pleased that this service provides audiences with access to programming that is produced and distributed by our member stations."


All PBS shows will be available through YouTube TV video-on-demand later this year. Everything will be recordable through its DVR service with no limits on storage.

YouTube Live is available for $49.99 per month.
