PBS, also known as the Public Broadcasting Service, is a free-to-air broadcasting network. A non-commercial programming channel, PBS was launched in 1970 and has since contributed to society with its educational content. The channel is independently funded by private foundations and individuals as well as by Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB).
