PBS Launches PBS Video App for Android with Chromecast Support

PBS has brought its mobile app to Android, giving Android users access to full episodes of shows like “Frontline,” “PBS Newshour,” “Masterpiece,” “Nova” and “Call the Midwife.” The new app also comes with Google Cast support, allowing users to beam their shows to their TV, provided it’s equipped with Google’s Chromecast streaming stick or any Android TV streaming device.

Other features for the app include a program guide, a watchlist for users’ favorite shows and a direct links to shows of local PBS affiliates.

PBS is also updating its iOS app with some of the same features, including Chromecast support. The public broadcaster said Tuesday that its mobile apps has thus far been downloaded more than 21 million times.

Correction: 2:10 p.m. PT: An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that the PBS Video app for iOS had been downloaded more than 21 million times. However, that’s the number of downloads of all PBS mobile apps together.
