PBS America is to go free-to-air on satellite at the end of October.
The factual channel from America’s Public Broadcasting Service first launched as a pay TV service in the UK four years ago.
According to a statement released today, PBS America will be available on Freesat from 29th October 2015.
Since launching as a pay channel in the UK, PBS America has carved out a niche in the factual market by showcasing high-quality, in-depth and balanced science, history and current affairs programming, including PBS’s multi-award winning NOVA, FRONTLINE and AMERICAN EXPERIENCE strands.
The channel continues to be available on Sky and Virgin Media.
