witf is proud to announce that videos from favorite PBS and PBS KIDS programs such as American Experience, Antiques Roadshow, FRONTLINE, Masterpiece, Nature, NOVA, Super Why!, Curious George and Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood, as well as local favorites such as Smart Talk and HealthSmart, are now available to consumers via the Roku® streaming platform.

Roku users will access and personalize their PBS experiences by choosing their favorite local station and sharing their email address. This will provide viewers with content from their local PBS station, anytime they want, while also giving their favorite PBS station a way to connect with them.

In addition to national and local PBS programming, viewers can access video from PBS Digital Studios, a network of short web-original videos from PBS.

"Our relationship with Roku is an important next step in our strategy to make PBS content available through a variety of platforms, while still maintaining the connection between the viewer and their local station,” said Jason Seiken, PBS SVP and GM, Digital. “We are happy that this partnership with Roku will deliver consumers both national PBS and PBS KIDS programs, as well as favorite video from their local PBS station, all on demand.“

Roku is a leading streaming platform for delivering video, music and casual games to the TV. Roku launched the first player to stream Netflix to the TV in 2008, and today streams more than 750 entertainment channels to millions of devices.
