    The content is incredible. So glad to finally have an app that lives up to the wonderful standard you expect from a children's app. The PBS app lives up to it's name. Even adults who should always want to learn how to improve on their coping skills with life's challenges, and adversities and dealing with people as a whole, can greatly be helped by watching shows like these with your children and even young adults because a good temperament is always a fantastic asset to have and show others.

    The loading time, even with decent reception is attrocious. When scrolling through the menu of episodes to find something chosen rather than the live broacast, i find the app's a.d.d. kick in and it snaps shut, demmanding that you watch their live feed... Quite, annoying. Love PBS, otherwise. Upgrade the server's processing powers and chill the demmanding feed.

    App used to run great, however recently the app just locks up on my fire tv box making everything unresponsive. I tried uninstalling the app and it still locks up at the loading screen forcing me to restart my firetv box. Please fix the app for fire tv/ firestick so my kid can watch his shows again.

    The latest update broke the CASTING link (to cast to the tv or another device via chromecast). If you try to click on the casting icon (next to the cc icon) the sidebar menu pulls out and shows all the available shows. I love this app, please fix for my sanity! My kids need their daily dose of vitamin DT (daniel tiger)

    My family has been happily utilizing this app for years. However, within the last few days, it has totally stopped working. Now we get a solid white or back screen which eventually throws up a "server error" dialog box, but it never works.

    Whenever I cast from PBS kids video app on chromecast, after 1 video the cast stops working. After that you can't cast videos from any other app as well. It kind of gets stuck and unless we restart chromecast, it won't let us cast any video from any other app as well.

    The content of app is good. Price is not. Might be free upfront yet huge data use cost. App draws mobile data at random times and even when connected to wifi. No setting on app to stop this or require permission to run. Almost caused me to go over plan data. Sadly will have to use other apps that work on wifi.

    I love this PBS kids video app because I got to watch all of my favorite shows on one app and I never have to watch TV again because it has odd squad Arthur and much more you should try this because it is a very good at and I love it very much because all of my favorite shows are on there even it has a live TV button right thereI watched a commercial about it and it didn't I didn't know if it would be good or not until I tried it I knew it was the best thing ever and sometimes I even have fun

  64. Miju-avatar



    The content of PBS does are great as always. I use this app to cast shows on the TV. It would be helpful to have an in-picture scrolling and time bar (?). Sometimes, the kids want to rewatch a song/scene, and trying to find the start of it is like a stab in the dark. Also, the "grown up" button just changes the show that's playing. I don't understand the function or the purpose of that button.

    I love this game but when you click on the type of show wanna watch it goes on to a random episode I've been wanting this app for so long and when installed it I kinda changed my mind I already have the pbs kids games app trie that out instead of this app it's not what youle aspect at all

  66. Brakissa Toni-Collins-avatar

    Brakissa Toni-Collins


    The content is great and I love that there's no unnecessary ads. But the app itself still needs a lot of work. Freezes often, does not connect to Chromecast majority of the time. When it does connect you can't change to another show without it malfunctioning or ever playing the video but refreshing constantly and not allowing you to cast using any other app (YouTube kids, Netflix, etc). Wish there was a screen lock button and a queue/playlist option that you can add shows specific to your kids.

    This app is the best!! My son loves Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood so much. It's comes in handy so many times already between having to bring him into the bathroom when I shower I just pop it on and he's happy watching Daniel. It even came in handy at the doctor's when it was time for his shots. He was so into watching Daniel he didn't feel the needle, well not right away at least lol. And whenever the car stops he gets upset so once again just pop it on and he's happy. Thank you so much for this❤

    We love this app, the only problem is when you choose the live tv option. We like our little one to only watch a certain amout of tv and we like for him to watch the more age appropriate shows, but tge app will say on the schedule that it is playing one show, but will be playing a totally different show. We have the same issue on the app on our Roku. It makes it difficult to schedule appropriate screen time.

    This app is fantastic. As a new father, it has been a godsend. You can watch a lot of different PBS shows. There is a small selection of episodes for each show. You will have to watch ads periodically. I have used this app a lot with my daughter and the ads fine considering all of the free content. You can also watch live PBS!

    So i seen on tv that pbs had an app and decided to download it for my 3 year old son. He fell in love with Curious George ofcourse! What i love about this app is that its so easy to use! My son likes to scroll up and down to see all the shows they have available. Its nice watching my son learn and laugh and all had to do was get the app. I love this app!

  73. Amanda James-avatar

    My 18 month looooves this app. I love that it updates the shows pretty regularly. However, it needs to have a "lock screen" button and have the shows maybe on a top bar instead of side because as soon as my little girl grabs the phone it changes shows.

  74. Miguel Alfaro-avatar

    Previously the app had the different tv shows listed and you could watch the episodes of interest. Now you only have the livestream option as a button the individual show buttons are not present. Please bring them back.....update as of 5/20 1630h CST the issue has been fixed all content is now available including live stream.

    Can't cast to Chromecast. The app opens fine and the video starts playing on my phone but when I try to cast it, all you see is the PBS logo on the top left of the screen. The rest of the screen remains black. The same happens on my wife's phone. We have Samsung S8's.

    My kids and I love this app and have used it for years. We are a military family who live overseas, but have American internet. We live on an American base, but can't use the app anymore. It's really disappointing, because we love it. It won't let us watch it...

    We love streaming from the PBS Kids app, and we cast to our TV. We really wish the app didn't force our phones into landscape mode the moment we launch it though! It's super frustrating, and it happens even when we have auto-rotate turned off. There's no reason for it to be in landscape when we're not watching it from that device. We'd love to see this changed in a future update. Thank you.

    This is a fantastic app and it's used a lot by our five year old. My only issue is the data usage. When we first started using it there was an option for lower quality video vs. HD to reduce data use when you were on your network plan. That option has been taken out (or maybe I just can't find it anymore) and the amount of data this app now uses is staggering. Make SURE you have a WIFI connection or unlimited data. Frustratingly, this app also has issues disconnecting when minimized (currently on Android KitKat, though this has been an issue for awhile now), so you can't be sure the app isn't drawing data unless you manually close it out of the tray. I still highly recommend it, but you might have to have some rules governing when it can/can't be used.

    It's great but I wish it had an option to use without data turned on. We have an old phone with no internet set up for our 4 year old nephew and its disappointing he can't use this on it.

    I wish other apps delivered this consistently. Never an issue with streaming/casting content. 5 full episodes and tons of clips for the shows. The option to turn on/off auto play would be nice. As it is now an episode starts as soon as the preceding ends. Ability to create a playlist or favorites would be awesome as well. I let my kid watch 1 episode of Daniel Tiger and then 1 episode of Sesame Street before nap. Would be great if I could set them up to play instead of switching around.

  87. Skylar Stancel-avatar

    Skylar Stancel


    this app is so cool!!!!! there are tons of fun things that you can watch. the thing that I really like about it is that seeing as I can't watch Peg + Cat or Curious George anymore I can watch them on here and not have to worry about not being able to watch them ever again so maybe if you have a favorite TV show that maybe got took off of Netflix or Amazon Prime I would definitely recommend this app.

    My daughter loves this app however as has been pointed out it is very much a data hog, especially if she sets it down and gets distracted by something else. PBS KIDS TEAM I know you have stated that downloading isn't an option due to licensing rights but is there a way to cache the content so that if they watch a video it doesnt have to reload each time? Even if it cleared the cache each time the app closed I feel like that would save on data, or it could store the cache and then it would just need to check in to authenticate with the server.

    My daughter and I love this App. We don't have cable. We have streaming services, but we also like to watch local channels to stay connected, well, locally, lol. I have an antenna for that. But sometimes PBS doesn't come in that clearly for my daughter. When that happens, this App is a life saver! I love the live TV function, because it's like we're not missing a thing! Commercials are great with my kid! That's how we get thing done! Next commercial break it's time for chores!

    I love this app! We love PBS Kids! I grew up on PBS kids. My son is growing up on PBS kids, even at 6 years old. Yes, he loves Wild Kratz lol. And now my one year old daughter is in love with PBS kids. We have one on the way and I will surely be using this app for little one too. It is free and it's very child friendly. Thank you PBS Kids for all that you do for our children!!

    Guys, the app really looks promising but can you please make it offline? I ask because it's painfully slow. Especially when watching a video. Also, the Live TV button I thought played what's on TV now

    Great app! I'm 20 years old and I love watching Arthur and Mr. Rogers on here. However why don't you have full episodes of Maya & Miguel and Fetch? Those were my jam back when I was 7-8 years old, would watch them every day after school! Also you need more full episodes of Mr. Rogers, the quality of the video is beyond flawless and are preserved perfectly for the new generations.

    Not designed for adults. The interface appears to be targeted at grade school children. It's simple, which is great for little kids. But it's too simplistic for adults. It only displays in landscape. No playlist options. It takes over your entire screen and makes it cumbersome to switch tasks quickly. I use it to cast video to our tv for my three young children, not watch in the app. The app isn't bad, it's just not convenient for adults to jump in and out or queue a playlist.

    where did the cast button go? my three year old loves this app. we don't have cable so this is the main way she can watch things like Daniel tiger. it was working ok yesterday but today when I try to cast to my television the button is gone. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app with no change. and your update says chromecast was updated to the newest version, so where's the button? please help me fix this problem so I can keep this app

  96. Aaron Greenberg-avatar

    Very convenient app, but could use some work. First is the layout. Having it mandatory to use full screen doesn't make sense. Please allow portrait mode so that it's easier to cast. With that said, the casting will constantly disconnect from my phone. I just bought a Roku TV, and the app on it works a lot better than the Android version, so I guess I'll stick to that one. For those reviewing the Roku one, the Google Play store is not the avenue to do that. This is just for the Android version.

    When I stream to my Chromecast, this app works fine for the first video I play. For all subsequent videos that I try to stream from the app, they go through a perpetual loading cycle and never play. Then, to make matters worse, I can't stream anything from my YouTube app to my Chromecast. Every time I try, I get this error message: "Please choose another video. Please report this ID to help us fix the problem." (followed by a unique id). This sequence of events has happened twice now.

    Fantastic app! I would highly recommend. You can watch a lot of tv shows on here and I find it amazing! If anyone is looking for an app to entertain you or your child, this is the app to use. Many people have issues with this app but I think it is just their device they are using PBS KIDS Video on. But this is just my opinion and experience so download the app to really see what it is.You really won't regret it!

    I am very dissapointed. My son & I really enjoyed this app the past year or so, but now I find (after reading reviews) that we are only one amongst MANY families who have been discarded ("PBS no longer supports this app") due to a recent update; its now only compatabe with OS 4.4 and above. I am unable to upade to a better device at this time. The options for free wholesome apps (educational, fun, safe) were alrdy scarce, now virtually zilch..very dissapointing.

    I loved this app for our toddler who loves Daniel Tiger. Unfortunately the app was experiencing a lot of problems casting to my son's TV, so I finally uninstalled and reinstalled. Since then, not only does it not cast to his TV, but the app won't even open on my phone. Just opens the loading page and spins until I give up. 5 stars for the content, 1 star for functionality.

    Best "go-to" cartoon and toddler shows streaming app I've tried so far! It's the only one that doesn't annoy you or your kids with lots of commercials and buffering.

  102. sailorstarfairy-avatar



    Nicely done! Couple of things: Kids are all about customization, can the main menu have different colors besides yellow boarding the screen? Also I noticed that the icons disappeared when scrolling through the list of shows. Missing my favorite show though. Will Wishbone make an appearance on this app? If not can PBS help with making Wishbone available for purchase as a digital product through their website?

    Since me and my sister don't have cable, it's great now that we can watch it on the go. It's only got clips, but that's okay. but when I turned on the TV and tuned into the app..they weren't in sync. Is this normal, or a problem? Try managing streaming issues, such as lagging or reversing.

    I love the idea of this app, and it works well when viewing directly from a phone or tablet, but it only casts to my Chromecast or loads on my Firestick about 10% of the time. Additionally, after attempting to cast the app, I have to reboot my Chromecast before any other apps will properly cast. I have emailed customer support an have not reached a solution.

  106. damion00-avatar



    Why can't I find this app on my Samsung Smart TV? It's great that I can find it on my android device but I'd rather not have to cast my device screen to my TV and take up both devices for one app. This wouldn't even have been an issue if PBS hadn't pulled their children's programming from Netflix.

    we absolutely love this app for our kiddo but today all it shows is a short video saying its no longer supported on the device (galaxy tab 3 lite). have tried uninstalling it and it shows the same when we reinstall it. app works fine on other devices. please fix, as my son LOVES to choose and watch his favorite shows by himself.

  110. franman781-avatar



    Very good overall. Great selection of titles, updating with new episodes weekly. Cast option is very useful, if the casting itself runs into occasional glitches (remedied by shutting down the app and resetting the tv). One important feature that's missing is a data usage limiter. It automatically streams at max quality, so those with limited data plans be careful when not connected to wifi.

    It is a great app but I'm not sure it has all of the shows on there. My little man wants to watch shows like Peep and the Big Wide World but unfortunately it's not available on the PBS kids app. We trying to stay away from YouTube because there is SO much that is not appropriate for little children readily available to them.

    Best screen time app for Mom's. Only pbs shows, everything is educational! And no commercials! I use it to chromecast (which occasionally doesn't work but it's usually fixed by closing and re-opening) or for last ditch distractions while or and about. So good to not have to work about the content my son could come across. Very well designed to!

    The developers of this app seem clueless about an ever growing number of Roku users who can't get the PBS Kids Video app to work. I get on-again off-again access to the full episodes. Right now, two separate new Roku TV's and one new Roku stick have non-working PBS Kids Video apps in my house, yet my single Amazon Firestick TV's PBS Kids Video app works.

    Please fix the Volume issue I have a daughter with hearing disabilities that has a tough time hearing the videos just on "PBS Kids Videos" app because the Max Volume is much too low. We have to turn off the Volume Limiter on the tablet just for "PBS Kids Video" app, while the rest of the apps keep a consistent max volume. This is dangerous for when she enters other apps without the Volume Limiter. We have no choice but to delete this app until issue is fixed. Please fix the Volume issue

    This is the best streaming app for kids. It's allows casting, but also has an easy interface for little ones. Obviously your kid has to like the shows they have, but in terms of the functionality of the app this by far the best one I've used in it's genre.

    this is usually a great app but ever since the time change on both the app and on the roku whats playing and coming up next is not what is actually playing or coming up next. this is for KQED and all of CA stations.

    So on with the middle bit of my other review on the games app. Yeah. It SUCKS. More recent trouble the games app caused me. Back in September me and my 4 year old sister are going home. I was eating Cheetos. The hair salon game reveals the yellow teens name. As it did (I write stories about them and just last week I made an eighth. I won't even say their names.) , I made the LOUDEST CHEETO CRUNCH EVER. All I will say is that no Cheetos went to waste. This is a follow up to the PBS game app.

    App isn't the easiest to navigate. It doesn't keep track of what's been watched already, so you have to keep skipping to the next episode to find one that's not been watched, which has a tendency to have the app then lock up. It would also be nice to mark favorite series.

    The app is really simple and easy to use. Constant technical issues make it difficult, though. Sometimes you can to the TV, sometimes the cast icon isn't even there. Sometimes you can watch live TV sometimes live TV never loads.

    There is something in this app that heavily burns mobile data by default in the background. Avoid this app at all cost unless you are on an unlimited data plan, yet no app should by default be churning this much data without users knowing and being disabled in the background by default.

    I would pick this app over noggin here one reason noggin can cost you 7.99 a month PBS doesn't need a subscription only on Amazon prime they cost 4.99 a month number two I that they do family night on PBS every Friday noggin don't do it and number three PBS has a Games app while noggin has both of them and PBS used to Thomas and friends and but they cut his station noggin in 2018. Hey PBS kids can you change your episodes of Daniel tiger's neighborhood sometime in the near future
