During 2012, SAFARI Montage will be adding 300 of the latest PBS/WGBH programs and series to the 650 programs currently available, such as Ken Burns’ The Civil War, NOVA, Frontline, Between the Lions, Cyberchase, Liberty’s Kids, Masterpiece Theatre and We Shall Remain.

Although PBS National will not be renewing their digital distribution agreements with other major players, other digital providers continue to maintain close ties to PBS member stations. Discovery Education customers will continue to have access to PBS content as part of its ongoing agreement with PBS member stations such as WETA, SCETV, Louisiana Public Broadcasting, among others. Discovery Education also works with independent producers that provide PBS content aired on TV and will continue to offer many popular programs including Sid the Science Kid, Reading Rainbow, The PBS NewsHour and WordGirl, among others.
