Reviews From google play store

Clumsy, not well maintained. Once a video expires (free episodes expire) it is stuck in your "my list" with no way to remove. Videos are unavailable on expiration date, not the day after. Routinely get "video unavailable right now" messages. Buffering issues. Even with paid passport, not much of their extensive library is available. FF and Rewind in their player (Firestick) is rudimentary. The app and their offerings could be so much better. For me, it's currently not worth the passport costs.

I'm most disappointed in the app for two reasons: they don't provide full seasons or even full episodes of some shows and a lot of content you can only access if you make a $60 annual contribution. I love PBS and strongly feel that it is a worthy cause, but I'm on a fixed income and can't afford a charitable donation. I was specifically looking at Austin City Limits; they show that they offer season 15, but if you click on the link, all that is offered is one 5 minute clip of one show.

This is by far one of the best apps you can get for any smart phone. The full library of PBS programming for amazing shows like Frontline. I've been watching PBS for years, and since I've cut the cord having the ability use this app for FREE to access new and old content is incredible. Thank you to the devs and PBS team for all your hard work on this. It works incredibly well paired with a Chromecast.

The Android app needs a way to skip forward and back! This is the only streaming video app of several I have used, including Netflix, Prime Video, Tubi, CBS and others that has no means of moving back or forward by 10, 15 or 30 seconds. This is totally unacceptable as it makes it impossible to back up to take another look at a missed detail or part of the video missed due to life's inevitable distractions. As a sustaining member of my local PBS station I find this omission very disappointing.

Not good. For public broadcasting, i guess i expected it to be similar to actual PBS. It is not. If the shows arent available unless you pay then dont list them. Or list them in a separate section. Its ridiculous to open the app and see all of these great shows and then have only one or two episodes available.

I have the app on my Roku. I don't understand why it doesn't have basic features. It doesn't save my place if I stop during a show. It doesn't even mark which episode I watched last, so I always have to scroll through all of them and hope I remember where I left off. I love PBS and I don't have a problem with paying the monthly donation to get more of the shows. I just wish the app were more user friendly. I really don't understand how such basic features can be left out.

Love the episodes on PBS, and this app is great! I never have issues with buffering or delay. Suggestion : I would love if you could add a 10 second, or 20 second, or 30 second, rewind or fastword, so the streaming episodes. That would be very convenient tool.

I love this! Access to so much excellent pbs material! Easy to find shows I like. But it could be better: streaming has occasionally been glitchy, and it could really use an autoplay or video queue.

Always crashes, everytime! Worse streaming app I have. I'm so upset I signed up for passport since the app is so poor.

Hard to navigate, a clear search bar would help. Hard to binge watch because you need to search all over again.
