Apple TV gets PBS and Yahoo videos app

Apple (S AAPL) TV users just got another option to watch Antiques Roadshow: PBS launched an app on Apple’s streaming box Tuesday, promising access to “thousands of hours of your favorite PBS programming.” But don’t expect whole seasons of Downton Abbey: Amazon (S AMZN) got an exclusive for that show, which means that episodes only show up “for a limited window following the on-air broadcast,” according to a statement given to AllThingsD’s Peter Kafka. Also new on Apple TV: An app for Yahoo (S YHOO) Screen, Yahoo’s very own video portal.

  1. Nice. Our local station (central FL) went belly-up and was taken over by a state college which doesn’t have much funding for the better programming. It’ll be nice to see some real PBS shows again.
