The collection of programs, which airs from noon to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, at least until June 2021, features series such as American Experience, History Detectives, and NOVA, plus a collection of historical documentaries, including limited series by Ken Burns.
“Streaming LEARN is a great opportunity to share the channel's unique schedule of programs,” said David W. Piccerelli, president of WSBE. Mr. Piccerelli noted that LEARN has limited distribution through cable carriers in Massachusetts and Connecticut, and it is not carried by satellite services. “Extending LEARN’s reach through live streaming over the Internet is a great boost for the community, offering more choice and convenience."
WSBE Rhode Island PBS produces and presents local content and accessible learning resources. Live streaming LEARN content now on smart TVs, computers, tablets, and mobile phones, lifts the station’s mission to the next level.
The station's primary channel, WSBE Rhode Island PBS, live streams on watch.ripbs.org/livestream. Schedules for both channels can be found on the station’s website, ripbs.org/schedule.
