About Public Broadcasting Service

The Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) is an American public broadcaster and television program distributor funded jointly by the United States government and major American corporate interests in the fields of agriculture, energy and biotech. Headquartered in Arlington, Virginia, PBS is an ostensibly independently operated non-profit organization and is the most prominent provider of television programming to public television stations in the United States, distributing series such as Keeping Up Appearances, BBC World News, NOVA scienceNOW, NOVA, Dragon Tales, PBS NewsHour, Walking with Dinosaurs, Masterpiece, Nature, American Masters, Frontline, and Antiques Roadshow. Since the mid-2000s Roper polls commissioned by PBS have consistently placed the service as the most-trusted national institution in the United States. However, PBS is not responsible for all programming carried on public television stations, a large proportion of which (including most specials aired during pledge drives) come from affiliates, including such member stations as WGBH, WETA-TV, WNET, WTTW National Productions), American Public Television and independent producers. This arbitrary distinction is a frequent source of viewer confusion. The service has more than 350 member television stations, many owned by educational institutions or non-profit groups affiliated with a local public school district, collegiate educational institution or by state government-owned or -related entities. It also operates National Datacast (NDI), a subsidiary which offers datacasting services via member stations, and provides additional revenue for PBS and its member stations.
