DirecTV Stream announced Tuesday that it will begin broadcasting local PBS stations later this year, joining YouTube TV.
The two companies that will be featured on participating PBS member stations will begin to appear in the next few months, with the full launch expected to be completed in 2022. The livestreams will be accompanied by a PBS video-on-demand library.
DirecTV Stream, which changed its name from AT&T TV last month, is now the second live TV streaming service to add PBS to its local broadcast list after YouTube TV. PBS Kids has also been added to DirecTV's lineup.
PBS has more than 330 member stations, though it's unclear how many will participate in the new partnership. PBS did not immediately respond to a request for further comment.
