I’m bummed… will have to catch the May 7 encore presentation.
But online? Suddenly, PBS has become a totally different animal, leapfrogging NPR’s Web site and then some. As part of an ambitious new redesign, set to debut in May, your dad’s Public Broadcasting Service launched the re-imagined PBS Video yesterday morning. It is fantastic. Easy to use. Modern. Flashy. (But not Flash-y, thank god.) It does everything that Hulu does, but it’s loaded with all that important, intelligent programming that you forget to DVR, all in near-DVD quality. Missed that Frontline last week (or last year)? They’ve got upwards of three years of programming available online, all set up in a giganto database that’s also searchable by topic.
Forget the canvas bags, PBS. This is what we’ve wanted all along.” —
