Most British drama series are produced as short-run series, with only a few episodes produced each season. In some cases, we are able to get the first few seasons all at once but then have to wait months or even years for new episodes to be produced and made available in the U.S.

Each program we air comes with a set of broadcast rights that define how long the program can be aired. We generally cannot go back and repeat earlier seasons of a program because the broadcast rights have expired. Often the program is no longer being offered by the distributor, or if it is offered, the rights must be repurchased. We have limited funds for purchasing programs and spending those funds on repeats isn’t always possible.

Most of the PBS materials we air are available on the following websites:

Of all contributed Arizona tax dollars (state and federal), less than $1.25 per household goes to support Arizona PBS. Like other PBS stations, Arizona PBS must turn to our viewers to help fill the gap between what is allocated and the actual cost of producing and broadcasting the high quality programming you expect — nearly $10 million each year. The membership drives continue to be our most effective and efficient means of fund raising. More than 60 percent of our operating revenue comes from viewers.
If you have a great story idea or program proposal that you want to share, you may contact our program development department via email or at 602-496-8888. Please do not send unsolicited proposals or DVDs.
If you have a completed television program or series that you would like Arizona PBS to consider airing, please refer to this page for guidance.
