The Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) is an American non-commercial educational public broadcaster and television program distributor. It is a nonprofit organization and the prominent provider of educational television programs to public television stations in the United States.

PBS, with more than 330 member stations, offers all Americans the opportunity to explore new ideas and new worlds through television and digital content. Each month, PBS reaches over 120 million people through television and 26 million people online, inviting them to experience the worlds of science, history, nature and public affairs; to hear diverse viewpoints; and to take front row seats to world-class drama and performances. PBS' broad array of programs has been consistently honored by the industry's most coveted award competitions. Teachers of children from pre-K through 12th grade turn to PBS for digital content and services that help bring classroom lessons to life. Decades of research confirms that PBS' premier children's media service, PBS Kids, helps children build critical literacy, math and social-emotional skills, enabling them to find success in school and life.
