    1. Kids can now watch their favorite PGS KIDS series in a child-friendly experience anywhere with a 3G or WiFi connection
    2. If you're in the USA you can watch any PBS KIDS series with new full episodes added every Friday

  • Terrific App!!! When it works :/ Nov 29, 2017

    By Rachelswork
    I love PBS. We are PBS supporters. I love this PBS kids app. We mostly watch Daniel tiger and Sesame Street. However, sometimes the app doesn't work. Today is one of those days where the "wheel of death" just keeps spinning around and around and around with no loading of any kind. Other times when it doesn't work, it's more of a connection problem for casting to the TV. Most of the time if I have the app on the background of my phone, casting to the TV, while I do other things like make phone calls etc, if I open the app again it completely refreshes and causes disconnection with what was already play on the TV (it'll start the episode over again or go to live TV or even the wheel of death comes on the TV because it's getting mixed signals). This is annoying. But not enough to make me hate the app, just disappointed. 4 ⭐️ because I LOVE PBS but the app needs a bit of tweaking.

    Hi I’m Meredith a mom of 3 girls Priscilla Ammonia and Lilia. My youngest daughters Priscilla and Ammonia have begged me for this app since forever and they really enjoy playing on this app. I got all episodes unlocked for them. They enjoy watching episodes of their favorite shows and sometimes I even watch along with them. PBS kids helps me get the stuff I need to get done well they watch tv on their tablets. This app is very educational and will help my girls in the future! You can play games, watch shorts and even watch you’re favorite shows! This app is going to help my children learn and grow throughout the future. They can learn social skills and more skills that will be successful for them. You can watch shows anytime and anywhere. I use to love PBS when I was little and I’ve passed it off to my girls and then new generations will always like it! PBS is like my childhood donation! I have many memories of this! I still have the app so I can interact with my daughters and teach them more so they can get ready for the school year!

    We are a PBS home for sure, we love almost all of the shows for kids that are offered. All but one. I have no doubt that a certain character has popped into the heads of other parents watching this before I even name him. The one thing I wish this app could do is give me the option to remove Caillou from the lineup. Not only do I loathe that little monster from the depths of my being, it turns my three year old into a whining monster as well. We will be having a good day and when things turn, you can be sure to hear her singing "I'm Caillou, Caillou". I would pay good money for the option to obliterate Caillou while keeping the other shoes we know and love that don't affect my child's behavior in such a negative way. Please strongly consider adding this feature. For my sanity and the sanity of parents far and wide.

    Hi, My name is Jovan Gradina, I am 10 years old, I don’t have my own Apple so I am using my dad’s. I REALLY am a big fan of PBS Kids shows (with some favorites including Arthur, Peg + Cat, and Hero Elementary, plus many others) but it could use some improvements, First, lets start with the app, #1, Why isn’t there an option to resume where you left off? #2 When I click on Ready Jet Go!, the theme song audio is a little low, even when I turn the volume up. Can you guys fix this? #3, How come Peep and the Big Wide World isn’t in the on demand section? Next, is some questions about the channel/block itself #1: Why were the E/I bugs removed #2: Why is the TV rating bug outside the 4:3 safe zone? #3 Is Esme and Roy coming to the block anytime soon? Overall I like PBS Kids and its app and channel but I hope you guys can answer my questions and take my suggestions into consideration, Bye! - Jovan EDIT: I have one more question about LIVE TV. Is PBS Kids going to air Nature Cat and Wild Kratts in 15 min slots on July 17 at 1:30 and 1:45AM? This is pretty confusing, PBS usually NEVER does that on the main and PBS Kids channel! Is this an error? My TV guides show the same thing!

  • Won’t stay on the show I select, it just moves to another one Feb 18, 2021

    By Catersa
    Before your most recent update, I didn’t have this issue. I could go to Wild Kratts for example and when I tapped the arrow, it would just go to the next Wild Kratts video. Now that I updated the app, when I tap the arrow, it goes to a different show. And when I select a show, it doesn’t stay selected. It’s frustrating for me to have to pause at just the right moment and select the show I want to watch for every single episode of it. I don’t like this intertwining of the shows with the arrow and the show that I want to watch not staying selected. If I wanted that, I would just go to the live TV and I don’t. And I can’t go back now with the update. Other than this issue, it’s a good app.

  • No restrictions on shows Mar 6, 2019

    By RaeRae0210
    I think the app is great with one exception, there are no show restrictions, I love PBS and how they have educational shows but I don’t feel like all of them are appropriate for my 3 year old. I would like to be able to restrict access to certain shows. Such as Cyberchase for example (I really don’t see how educational that show is at least for his age) or to have the ability to add certain shows so that he’s only watching what I’m okay with him watching. Other than this I love the app, it’s convenient, he can flip through he shows and watch Daniel Tiger and if he’s bored with that he can switch to Sesame Street, etc.

    This has to be one of the worst apps I have ever used. Right when you open the app it runs an ad for pbs blasting you with sound that can't be stop unless muting phone. It is also very difficult to navigate to shows and once you get them going you can't fast forward due to the feature not working when used. Amazing content trapped in a rough app.

    App won't work. Already had App installed but couldn't find it so I went to the play store and it says the app is installed. I tried to open in in the play store and it immediately closes. I uninstalled and reinstalled the App and the same thing happened. I came to the app on the phone because the app on my firestick was having issues and these are the only ways to watch PBS Kids since we don't have a local affiliate in my area.

    Could you please put a lock option on the video like Netflix, is frustrating giving it to a small child to watch as every time they touch the device it stops playing. Unenjoyable because of the constant disruption. Thank you, otherwise 5 stars

  • Having issues when linking to chrome cast Jul 29, 2019

    By G4|\/|3R
    Normally, the app works great but this last update has serious issues when casting to a tv using Chromecast. I use this app on my iPhone and my iPad mini and they both have the same issues. 1) the app will continue playing sound on my phone or iPad after casting onto the Chromecast. The only way to stop the sound from continuing on my devices is by closing the app. 2) the app has issues with live tv. It takes forever for the app to properly cast what’s supposed to be live onto the tv. For example, the app kept playing a different cartoon instead of playing what was live for my region (which I selected). I kept pressing the live tv “button” but it kept playing the cartoon over and over again. It only resolved after I closed the app and tried again. Both these issues have made the app really difficult and cumbersome to use. I exclusively use Chromecast to use the app since we always cast pbs on our tv for our toddler to watch together as a family. Please review these bugs and update in the next patch.

    Even tho this isn’t my Apple acc it’s my dad’s so I’ve always loved PBS Kids since I was younger and it’s what I grew up with. It’s a great app but sometimes crashes maybe because my internet but even if it was the app’s lag I’d still rate it 5 stars. Not only did I use it when I was younger but I still sometimes go on here to watch, and it’s great because I have younger cousins that I babysit sometimes and there 2 and 4 years old and I showed the older one this app and he loves watching all the videos and sometimes when he comes over I help him get into the app and watch some videos with him sure I am getting older but it brings back memories:)

    Number 1. When I want to watch odd squad or something like that and I want to watch my favorite episode it ALWAYS starts in the wrong part of the episode like for example when I want to watch something it will start in the middle, Why? Number 2. What if I had a friend and they speak Chinese, how would I be able to Change the language in PBS kids? Number 3. I would like to have a quick way to get to PBS games. If you would take some of my suggestions it would be great to see at least one of my ideas in the PBS video app so if you agree with one of my ideas please respond to my review. Have a nice day!

    I’ve been using this app for over a year. And every Saturday morning me and my little one wakes up and watch GO LUNA, Wild Krats, Molly and now Eleanor. But last night and this morning I keep getting an error message that I can only view in the UNITED STATES... clearly I’m in the US we live in DC. I emailed the address that was given to me in the message and the problem still hasn’t been fixed. The link in the email is only works for PBS not PBS KIDS. so I’ll just delete the app off all my devices and won’t use it anymore. Yes this makes me sad and I feel like I’m letting my child down but it’s above me now.

    Generally this is a decent app but recently it's been having an odd issue where the closed caption button will vanish if you try to Chromecast an episode so unfortunately I am unable to use the captioning as I only use it on Chromecast. Hoping this will get fixed at some point.
  • Thankful for PBS, reloading issue when open, please add auto play control Oct 6, 2017

    By Branflake7
    Our family loves this app. Especially with the addition of casting to our TV via Chromecast. We use it on our iPhones and iPad. One problem we experience: if we have a program castes to our TV, and the app is open on my iPhone, when I unlock the screen, it restarts/reloads the show that is playing without prompting. Quite annoying to the one watching it on the TV! Is there something I can change? Also, adding a feature to turn off the auto-play would be amazing. I want my kiddos to enjoy PBS programming without becoming TV zombies!

  • New Episodes? Dec 31, 2019

    By Bjf217
    This is a wonderful app. It can get glitchy at times but usually is resolved with an appletv restart. My only complaint is the rotation of available full episodes. Maybe there are contractual conflicts or something else but it seems like even when new episodes are rotated on, they are the same episodes that were just rotated out. If your kiddo only watches 2 or 3 shows this gets old pretty quickly. We are a curious George house and the howlin Hal episode has been playing for years. When my kiddos have screen time options I want them to want Pbs kids, but that is getting less and less likely because the same episodes of their favorite shows have been in heavy rotation for over a year and sometimes two.
  • Love PBS Kids - wish the app was more consistent Dec 15, 2019

    By Katicita919
    We absolutely love and support public TV and radio in our household. Thank you for providing free access to quality shows for our toddler, like Daniel Tiger! Unfortunately, I can only get the app to work maybe a quarter of the time. We pick the episode and cast to the TV, and it starts to load, but all we get is a black screen with the PBS Kids logo in the corner. We’ve tried rebooting the Chromecast and using other HDMI ports, but the issue persists. Other apps work fine, so there’s something with this app that causes an issue. And I definitely can’t pause or change anything about the video once it is playing, or I’ll get the same black screen. We love Daniel Tiger - please help!

    Please offer more show/episode availability to low income kids!!! My kids love the programs, but the app is very limited and the only way to access more content is to subscribe to Amazon Prime AND THEN subscribe to the PBS channel on top of that... so basically only wealthier families can afford it. It would be nice if you'd add kids content to PBS Passport or create an affordable subscription option through this app. I'd much rather give my money directly to PBS rather than go through Amazon.

    Takes forever to load. Wish it had a screen locking function when kids have it. So they dont accidentally change it or leave app because it's very touchy sensitive

    This has to be one of the worst apps I have ever used. Right when you open the app it runs an ad for pbs blasting you with sound that can't be stop unless muting phone. It is also very difficult to navigate to shows and once you get them going you can't fast forward due to the feature not working when used. Amazing content trapped in a rough app.

    Could you please put a lock option on the video like Netflix, is frustrating giving it to a small child to watch as every time they touch the device it stops playing. Unenjoyable because of the constant disruption. Thank you, otherwise 5 stars
  • Having issues when linking to chrome cast Jul 29, 2019

    Normally, the app works great but this last update has serious issues when casting to a tv using Chromecast. I use this app on my iPhone and my iPad mini and they both have the same issues. 1) the app will continue playing sound on my phone or iPad after casting onto the Chromecast. The only way to stop the sound from continuing on my devices is by closing the app. 2) the app has issues with live tv. It takes forever for the app to properly cast what’s supposed to be live onto the tv. For example, the app kept playing a different cartoon instead of playing what was live for my region (which I selected). I kept pressing the live tv “button” but it kept playing the cartoon over and over again. It only resolved after I closed the app and tried again. Both these issues have made the app really difficult and cumbersome to use. I exclusively use Chromecast to use the app since we always cast pbs on our tv for our toddler to watch together as a family. Please review these bugs and update in the next patch.

    App won't work. Already had App installed but couldn't find it so I went to the play store and it says the app is installed. I tried to open in in the play store and it immediately closes. I uninstalled and reinstalled the App and the same thing happened. I came to the app on the phone because the app on my firestick was having issues and these are the only ways to watch PBS Kids since we don't have a local affiliate in my area.

    It stopped working about a week or two ago, after it was working for at least a year. I tried uninstalling and re-installing. It did nothing to help. I tried clearing my phone's data and cache, still won't load.
