WTCI PBS is now streaming live, free for everyone, on the PBS Video App, online at wtciTV.org and on the following platforms: Roku, Android mobile, Amazon Fire tablets, iOS, tvOS, Chromecast, Android TV and Amazon Fire TV.
Officials said, "When PBS first began broadcasting over 50 years ago, it was born out of a groundbreaking idea: that Americans deserve a non-commercial television service whose sole mission is to educate and inspire. Guided by that bold mission, public television has transformed communities and strengthened lives.
Today, WTCI PBS is taking another step forward to ensure that viewers in the Tennessee Valley can engage with our educational content in more ways than ever before.
"Viewers have watched WTCI PBS for over 50 years via cable, satellite and our over the air broadcast. But viewer habits have changed in recent years, and WTCI PBS is making every effort to meet viewers where they are. Anyone in the Tennessee Valley region with a high-speed internet connection can watch shows like PBS Newshour, Antiques Roadshow, Frontline and Nature, as well as local series and specials, like The A List with Alison Lebovitz, Greater Chattanooga and Explore Health."
“Viewers are accessing content in new ways, and we want to make sure we’re serving every member of this community however they choose to receive our signal,” said Bob Culkeen, president and CEO of WTCI PBS. “While the media landscape has dramatically changed since WTCI PBS signed on over 50 years ago, public television continues to serve as a beacon of thoughtful and thought-provoking media for viewers across the Tennessee Valley. That mission is as important today as it was 50 years ago. We hope viewers will let us know how they watch using the hashtag #MyWTCIPBS.”
