How to watch PBS from abroad?

How to watch PBS from abroad?

PBS is the most prominent provider of television programs to U.S. public television stations, distributing series such as PBS NewsHour, Masterpiece, and Frontline. Since the mid-2000s, Roper polls commissioned by PBS have consistently placed the service as America's most-trusted national institution. However, PBS is not responsible for all programming carried on public TV stations; in fact, stations usually receive a large portion of their content (including most pledge drive specials) from third-party sources, such as American Public Television, NETA, WTTW National Productions and independent producers. This distinction is a frequent source of viewer confusion.PBS also has a subsidiary called National Datacast (NDI), which offers datacasting services via member stations. This helps PBS and its member stations earn extra revenue.

 

For expatriates or simply foreigners, one of the best way is to choose a VPN (Virtual Private Network). This kind of software will allow you to switch your IP into a new one (depending of the server location that you choose). It will enable to bypass any geo-restriction system, thus you will be able to enjoy the CBS content.
