While we’re still waiting for the official PBS app to hit the Windows Store for Windows 8 users, there are some third-party apps from developers that we can use. Read below a short review of PBS Channel, a cool PBS app developed by Binto Aden windows 8 pbs app
The Public Broadcasting Service, or PBS, as it is known, is an American non-profit broadcast television network with 354 member television stations. Windows 8 users have long been looking for a reliable PBS app to use on their Windows 8 tablets; but alas, an official one is not released in the Windows Store. However, the PBS Channel seems to be the best replacement, as it has garnered a lot of positive reviews.

Not the greatest, but the single Windows 8 PBS app

PBS’s educational media helps prepare children for success in school and opens up the world to them in an age-appropriate way

Unfortunately, the app is far from being similar to what an official PBS should look like, but it’s the single one that is currently available. The app is divided in three big categories, with PBS content from Youtube, Flickr and a Twitter section with mentions related to the PBS television network.

It isn’t that easy to follow some PBS programs, such as Frontline, Nova, Masterpiece, or Nature by using this app, as you will have to scout for them. I only have the hope that the developer will manage to release more features in a future update.
