How do I delete or reinstall the PBS app on Apple TV?

Apple TV 4 and newer models (released in 2015 and on)

  1. Return to your Apple TV home screen.
  2. Hover over the PBS app. Instead of opening it, click and hold the select button on your remote until the app starts to jiggle.
  3. Press the Play/Pause button on your remote to bring up more options.
  4. Select Delete.
  5. The app and its data will be removed from your Apple TV.

To reinstall the app at any time, please see our instructions on downloading the app.

Apple TV 2/3 models (released in 2010-2014)

Apps cannot be deleted from older Apple TV models. 

If you would like to hide PBS app on your home screen so you no longer see it, return to the Apple TV home screen and select Settings > Main Menu and scroll down the list of apps to find the PBS app. If the app is set to the "Show" option, select it to change it to "Hide" and it should now disappear from your Apple TV home screen.
