PBS

PBS is hands down my new favorite channel on PlayOn. Each week I seem to discover more awesome shows within the channel. Frontline is my favorite, followed closely by Antique Roadshow. In case your not familiar with the premise of Anitique Roadshow, a group of antique experts travel around to different towns each week and do appraisals for the town people that come to the airing. Sounds kind of lame when explaining it, but this is a gold mine for any history buff. A few weeks ago on Antiques Roadshow an elderly man brought in a Tiffany and Co. sword used in the civil war. Frontline, on the other hand, is a documentary style show focusing on current world issues. Subjects anywhere from politics to technology can be covered and it is always presented in an educational yet intriguing way. But don't worry, if neither of these shows are your cup of tea there is plenty more to choose from.
