PBS joins the iPad parade

Add PBS to the networks streaming content directly to the iPad. Pbs-ipad

The public network launched a free app yesterday allowing users to full-length versions of some of its most popular programs, including “Nova,” “Antiques Roadshow” and “Austin City Limits”. The app also gives a one hour preview for the networ’s upcoming multi-part series “Circus”.

It’s a hit, too. In its first day, the app went to number one in the App Store’s charts.

That’s not too surprising. The demand for video content on the iPad has been voracious, with Netflix and ABC seeing their apps among the most widely downloaded. Games and video have proven to be the two most popular uses of the device.
