Do you want to watch Idaho Public Television but don’t have an antenna, cable or satellite TV? Now it’s no problem with IdahoPTV’s new live stream, available online and on most smart devices through the free PBS Video app.
The IDAHO Channel, our main broadcast channel, is now streaming live across our service area. The live stream is available to anyone with an internet-connected device such as a computer, laptop, tablet or smart phone and a major web browser (Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Edge) by visiting idahoptv.org/streaming.
The live stream is also available through streaming devices such as Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire Stick and many smart TVs by downloading the free PBS Video app, which is available for most smart devices.
The addition of the IDAHO Channel live stream expands access to Idaho Public Television for households across the state. The IDAHO Channel live stream is one more way for people to find educational and entertaining PBS programming without the expense of cable or satellite television, and may be a better option for rural or remote areas where over-the-air reception is unreliable.
“One of Idaho Public Television’s three major initiatives is to allow for all Idahoans to have access to our content when they want and how they want,” says Ron Pisaneschi, IdahoPTV general manager. “From our educational PBS KIDS programs during the day, to our current affairs and science shows in the evening, to our beloved dramas on the weekends, now, more than ever, there are more ways to watch our IDAHO Channel!”
