Feb. 10, 2022
DIRECTV STREAM customers will have access to educational and inspiring content from Arizona PBS.
Arizona PBS announced today the station is now live streaming on DIRECTV STREAM. A dedicated live channel for Arizona PBS is already available to all local DIRECTV STREAM customers, supplemented with additional PBS on-demand programming that will continue to expand PBS’s digital footprint and offer viewers various ways to stream PBS content. Arizona PBS is the top-rated public media television station in the region, serving 1.9 million people each week with distinctive PBS programs and local productions that invigorate the Southwest.
“Entertainment is personal and should serve every member of the household, which is why we’re partnering with PBS to deliver DIRECTV STREAM customers more choice, more control and a more convenient way to access the content they care about most,” said Rob Thun, Chief Content Officer for DIRECTV.
“DIRECTV STREAM will allow Arizona PBS viewers to personalize their viewing experience and give them more access to our award-winning local and national content. This initiative also aligns with our 2021-2024 strategic plan, which calls for Arizona PBS to better know our audiences in order to serve them exceptional content, experiences and resources,” said Arizona PBS General Manager Adrienne Fairwell.
Relationships like this ensure that on-demand content from PBS favorites, including American Experience, Antiques Roadshow, Frontline, Masterpiece and Nature, are available to as many viewers as possible.
In addition, the PBS KIDS channel has recently joined both the DIRECTV STREAM and DIRECTV lineups, helping to extend the PBS mission of preparing young children for success in school and life through trusted, educational media, available anytime and anywhere. Now, young viewers can access their favorite series, including Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, Molly of Denali, Odd Squad, Pinkalicious & Peteterrific and Wild Kratts, among many others, via DIRECTV and its on-demand menu or using the same capabilities on DIRECTV STREAM.
Arizona PBS is a member-supported community service of Arizona State University, based at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication in the heart of downtown Phoenix.
