PBS

PBS headquarters in [[Crystal City, Arlington, Virginia The Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) is an American public broadcaster and television program distributor. It is a nonprofit organization and the most prominent provider of educational television programming to public television stations in the United States, distributing series such as ''American Experience'', ''America's Test Kitchen'', ''Antiques Roadshow'', ''Arthur'', ''Barney & Friends'', ''Clifford the Big Red Dog'', ''Downton Abbey'', ''Finding Your Roots'', ''Frontline'', ''The Magic School Bus'', ''Masterpiece'', ''Mister Rogers' Neighborhood'', ''Nature'', ''Nova'', the ''PBS NewsHour'', ''Sesame Street'', ''Teletubbies'', and ''This Old House''.

PBS is funded by member station dues, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, corporate contributions, National Datacast, pledge drives, private foundations, and individual citizens. All proposed funding for programming is subject to a set of standards to ensure the program is free of influence from the funding source.

Since the mid-2000s, Roper Opinion Research polls commissioned by PBS have consistently placed the service as the ''most-trusted national institution'' in the United States. A 2016 - 2017 study by Nielsen Media Research found 80% of all US television households view the network's programs over the course of a year. However, PBS is not responsible for all programming carried on public television stations, a large proportion of which may come from affiliates, including such member stations as WGBH, WETA, WNET, WTTW, WHYY, Twin Cities PBS, American Public Television, and independent producers. This distinction regarding the origin of different programs is a frequent source of viewer confusion.

The Public Broadcasting Service has more than 350 member television stations, many owned by educational institutions, nonprofit groups affiliated with one particular local public school district or collegiate educational institution, or entities owned by or related to state government.
