PBS Audio Help

PBS offers two distinct services;

We offer audio in AAC (best quality), AAC+ and MP3.

Desktop Software for PBS Audio

With recent HTML5 browsers, you do NOT need the Adobe Flash Player to play the PBS live streams or archived PBS audio.  In fact, few websites now require Flash, but just in case you want it ...

IMPORTANT: you need to give Flash permission to access PBS audio in your web browser.  Click where the audio player should be, and respond to the pop-up.  If the audio player still won't appear, you should try a different browser.

PBS Apps



Dedicated PBS Apps for Android and Apple devices are currently unavailable, sorry.  However, consider the TuneIn apps for Apple or Android.
