PBS launches iPad video streaming app

PBS has released a new application allowing users to stream PBS content to their iPad. PBS for iPad provides access to both current programs and a variety of content from the PBS archives as well as access to local PBS station schedules from within the app. The application provides access to classic PBS shows such as Masterpiece Theatre and Julia Child as well as some new content that has been created specifically for the iPad version. Users can also pause shows while watching and resume them later from where they left off. PBS for iPad is available from the U.S. App Store as a free download. [via TUAW]

I was happy to see the PBS app, having cut cable a year ago.

I watched a couple of shows and found the video pixelated and choppy at times, certainly not at the quality level I was expecting. I was hoping for video on par with the ABC app.

Hopefully they’ll improve it in an update.

I agree that the ABC app sets the standard for content and quality. As a subscription-based service, Netflix is not far behind. What other free and paid apps do you rely on for content since you’ve “cut the cable”?
