PBS is dedicated to good stories, well told. Their viewers are passionate about what they have to offer – television that is smart, absorbing, informative and even addictive. It’s precisely the kind of content we look to bring to the Hulu Plus subscription service. This is true of Ken Burns’ fascinating documentary films, the sweeping drama of Masterpiece: Downton Abbey as well as PBS Kids content that engages young minds while helping children build the skills they need to succeed in school and in life.
This week, we added approximately two hundred PBS episodes to Hulu Plus, including dozens of episodes from Ken Burns library, the first season of Masterpiece: Downton Abbey and episodes of PBS Kids series including Arthur, Dinosaur Train and Wild Kratts. We will also add hundreds more episodes over the coming weeks, including more kids’ favorites like Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood and Super Why, as well as additional episodes of NOVA, Masterpiece and American Experience – top-quality PBS series that Hulu users have already come to enjoy.
What people say they love most about PBS content is that it opens up new worlds and ideas. They take viewers on journeys to exciting places and introduce them to amazing characters. With PBS, you can ponder the nature of the universe with NOVA, revisit the greatest chapters of our nation’s history on American Experience or follow the most in-depth investigative journalism on television with Frontline and more.
Children and their parents can take a trip through time and natural science on the Dinosaur Train, join the Kratt brothers on their animal-powered adventures on Wild Kratts or help a young aardvark and his friends overcome the everyday calamities of being a kid on Arthur.
We hope you enjoy the new PBS content on Hulu Plus as much as we enjoy bringing it to you.
