When you launch the app for the first time you’ll see an animated intro that plays automatically. At the bottom of the screen you have two options:

  1. Tap Not Now to begin browsing the app without logging in (Figure 1.1) 
  2. Tap Sign In to log in and begin your localized experience (Figure 1.2).


Logging in to the app allows you to:

  • create and access your Watchlist
  • view your local TV Schedule
  • donate to your local station

If you do not have a login, create an account by tapping Create one now next to Don't Have a PBS Account? (Figure 2).
