If you’re a fan of PBS’ shows, like Poldark, Downton Abbey, Mr. Selfridge, Wolf Hall, Mercy Street, Nature, NOVA, and more, we have a great news for you. You’re now able to watch your favorite shows on your Windows 10 device, with the new PBS Video app that just arrived in the Windows Store.

Unfortunately, the new PBS Video app is not available for Windows 10 Mobile, yet, as you can only download it on Windows 10 PCs and tablets, but the mobile version should arrive sometime in the future, as well.

PBS Video for Windows 10 Features

PBS Video features all “Masterpiece shows,” like Poldark, Downtown Abbey, Mr. Selfridge, and Wolf Hall, but it also features other “PBS primetime shows,” like Mercy Street, Antiques Roadshow, Frontline, Independent Lens, POV, History Detectives, Nature, Need to Know, Nova, Secrets of the Dead, and more. The app is not Universal, as you can’t use it on your Windows 10 Mobile device, but it comes with a great Cortana and Live Tile support, so you can have an easier access to your favorite PBS series.

Here’s the list of all PBS Video notable features:

  • Quick access to TV times and channels for your favorite PBS programs (coming soon)
  • Live tiles display new episodes
  • Customize your lock screen picture with PBS themed backgrounds
  • See what’s on your local PBS station
  • Learn more about PBS show and specific episodes
  • Bpbs video windows 10 appookmark favorite shows and episodes for easy retrieval

All shows and videos are free to watch, but although you can install the app anywhere in the world, video stream is only available for the users in the US.
