About PBS KIDS Video

The PBS Kids Video app promises to extend PBS' mission to deliver curriculum-based entertainment across all platforms. The app also was designed so kids could stay current on various PBS children's shows. This is useful, since some of the programs have running storylines, and others have sequential educational components where seeing episodes in order is required.
