Videos no longer loading by Lenmier
For the past two days all the app does is attempt to load videos, then after about 10 seconds, the app displays, "OOPS! We can't load this video" Then it tries to load the next video, generating the same message. I can not find a way to report an error within the app.
Please fix ASAP
Will not work by Tayp13
Upon opening the app it says “PBS KIDS video may only be viewed from within the United States”
I AM IN TEXAS!?! Born and raised in Texas. Why can I not use it?
Anti traditional family by Seth1908
PBS is less trusted now. My Kids we’re watching Arthur, all the sudden teacher comes out as gay. That’s the last thing I want my kids exposed to on a cartoon. They are starting to push liberal ideas. I wouldnt mind if the cut pbs funding, they aren’t supporting family values anymore.
PBS kids is so relaxing by syd grace reed
I love pbs kids so much! And it’s so relaxing best game ever!!!
PBS kids is awesome! I Love it! We love PBS kids and all the shows by qazwsxedcfrvtgbyhnujmik,ol.p
Games you should get it.
Please add mister rodgers back! by bjehwchiuwd
I love mister Rodger’s show! But PBS doesn’t air it anymore
No by Toralovesag
Not updating by Eozik
The app isn't updating and keeps replaying the same episode over and over.
broken by AaronTabuchi
the latest version of this app is broken. Ever since the update, the app loads the logo and says "wedu". Then it tries to load videos but says its unable to load. please repair!!!
Hi by gelikse cat
Hi I’m 9 and i love it but you lied because the app said that they’re was going to be a new ather episode last week
Unable to work by mama anxious
PBS is my son’s fave but we’ve been having issues playing it, don’t know why? It’s said unable to play if not USA, but we’re in Texas. Why it won’t work?
Block certain shows by Jason Blason
Would it be possible to block certain shows?
Need more parental controls by wyrdduck
Not all of the PBS kids shows are appropriate for all ages. I will be removing it from my kids’ devices until I can set controls on which shows they can watch.
Sad by lisha764
I can’t watch any videos because it says only available in the states can u make the app available in different countries please
Arthur by carrotts8
Very disappointed with the show. If I want my granddaughter to know about gay marriage, she can hear about it from me, not a cartoon. Am removing pbs videos from my tablet.. I will definitely monitor all apps more closely. So sorry we have to do this! This is a shame!
Block certain shows by TheCarversWife
We have loved having our son grow up watching PBS Kids for the most part. However, we very much wish we could block certain shows. I will not allow my son to watch Sesame Street or Authur due to content and characters. I would like to be able to block them or others as I see fit.
Great App by belovedsparrow
My girls LOVE to be able to pick their shows at will. Daniel Tiger is their favorite PBS show but they like a lot of the others too.
This app works well with our WiFi and its being Free is extra cool!
Gets worse each time by habitant_manqué
Don’t update!! I’m on latest iOS 12 and this app gets slower and more bloated each time.
Ok by nhhrbgy
The thing is my kid loves all the shows but I can’t download all 500 so can you maybe download it for us people when we download your app thx
When it works, it’s great! by Purpleorca14
The thing is it never works!
After waiting a long time (on good internet) it finally loads, and it’s not even the show I wanted to watch
It is such an awesome app but it’s so glitchy! Please fix! If your not patient and have another way to watch these shows I would not recommend this app. The website works better
Pbs kids reveiw by BabyHamed
Doesn’t work by Denjoey083102
The app is great when it works. My sons love this app but recently (about a week) it hasn’t been working at all. Keeps giving me errors and telling me that only people in the states can view videos. I am in the states so I’m not sure what in the world is going on with it.
My little one miss seeing it. by CrisXimena
I love the app as a mom and my little girl loves it as well but it’s been two days that she can’t see it. I keep on getting an message saying “PBS KIDS Video May only be viewed from within the United States” I live like 10min away from Mexico but I’m still in the United States and it doesn’t work. My little one keeps on asking to see it, but I can’t get it to work. I really hope they can fix it soon so the viewers that closer to the border like the McAllen, TX area.
Other then that is a great app for kids and they learn so much from it.
No coolness by songbird🦋
This app is dumb it has Halloween Christmas and ester that’s bad if you love holidays hate them but the games still work. Well do not be happy with this bye.
Used to love this app by Parked and monkey
I loved that I could cast it to my smart TV! But now the casting doesn’t work anymore.
Wish I could see a video by Chencho420
I wanted to watch videos but since in not in the us they don’t let me
Works great..mostly by romfather
Excellent app. Sometimes on iPhone XS the Chromecast option doesn't appear and you have to close and reopen the app for it show up
Live tv audio won’t stop when loading another show by moatmnt
App content is good, but the live tv audio keeps playing over content that I select. We can hear both shows playing at the same time. This happens a lot...
I love it so good job by Nicki Cheney19
I love this app it’s very fun to watch a video or even more
Love it 😍 by evjfhyfjyd
This game is the best and it’s free !👍🏻👍🏻🦔🦄😍😍❤️
Possible bug issues? by sheman22
My son loves this app. His favorite is curious George. But since yesterday all we get is a black screen when he tries to watch it. It’ll play the live tv cartoons but only if I exit the app completely and reopen it.. but as soon as a different cartoon is clicked on it goes back to a blank screen and nothing happens. Please look into this?
Disappointed by H.Z. mom
This was a great app when it actually worked. For the past few months all we’ve been getting was the think trademark, a black screen, and no videos downloading. Updated my device and re-installed app. Nothing works. Very disappointing especially since my son loves these shows. YouTube kids app is reliable but I hate their video posting issues.
Wild Kratts going away? by Kitticupcake from roblox
I’m usually watching Wild Kratts but some of the episodes are going away by the way I’m talkin bout the forth bald eagle and back in creater time other than that I love PBSkids
Has Odd Squad by MischievousPandy
I downloaded this app just to watch Odd Squad during my work breaks. This is the best app to watch Odd Squad with.
Plays audio for multiple shows at once by Pops Callahan
Works fine on tablet but the Apple TV edition plays the audio for 2-3 shows at once when you select a show, rendering it unusable. Has been like this for weeks now.
Same issue as others by Stguisy
The content on this app is awesome for our toddler! We use chrome cast to cast to the TV, but similar to others, we are experiencing an issue where mid-episode, maybe after only a few minutes, it appears to be restarting or skipping to the next episode in its own.
Could let the user choose the episode by Aiden The iPhone
OK app and all but just chooses a random episode
Needs a way to disable autoplay by BradGess
The content is great. It’s like an opioid for kids’ brains, which is why I request that this app adds a “disable autoplay next episode” feature so that kids have to ask their parents for the next hit.
StrikerX5 by the gamerbro
Nice as ice
I love the app, but here’s a suggestion... by EpiqueTaii
The Fizzy’s Lunch Lab show is a much louder volume than all the rest, so when my daughter is using her iPad to go to which shows she prefers, when she selects Fizzy’s it always scares both myself and her when it comes through the bluetooth speaker EXTREMELY loud. Please standardize the volumes of all shows, thanks.
Also, for parents who want to restrict what their child does, if you have an iPhone try the Guided Access feature. It helps with my 1-year-old. Look it up how to set it up, it’s in settings under ‘general’; just turn it on.
I’m in Utah and it says I have to be in U.S. by Five.zero.nine
The app no longer works for us. It says we must live in the U.S. to view it, however, we live in Utah. (Does not work on our iPad or iPhone 10s anymore).
When it works, the app is great. But it hasn’t been working for us for over a month now. :(
2 for the price of One App by Lam, Calvin
I love how this app now includes PBS KIDS stickers for your messages! I think you should add in stickers for ODDSQUAD, Pinkalicious & Peterrific, & Let’s Go Luna!
Its not working by hazyrose4444
I had to close out of the app four times to get it to load anything. There were no pictures, no words. Just white circles on the side and a blank screen. When i did finally get a video to load it stopped playing every 5 seconds to buffer. Im giving three stars because pbs is so much safer than youtube kids and once it did start going it was fine until it needed to think. Im not sure if its my connection or the app, but i do know that i can load all other apps perfectly fine.
EDIT: RESPONSE. I am using an iphone and i was connected to wifi. I understand y’all work off of donations to the network so ive been spreading the news about your app and asking everyone to donate. I hope it helps.
First three episodes over and over and over. by ChelcD
Me and the kids love all the shows on this app! Educational but fun! As far as the app itself it’s kind of annoying because shows never stop where you left off and it always starts all over to the first episode (we have literally watched the same three episodes of dinosaur train like 10 times) and loading each episode takes a minute or more. Other then that tho it’s great, I like the layout and it’s user friendly.
No restrictions on shows by RaeRae0210
I think the app is great with one exception, there are no show restrictions, I love PBS and how they have educational shows but I don’t feel like all of them are appropriate for my 3 year old. I would like to be able to restrict access to certain shows. Such as Cyberchase for example (I really don’t see how educational that show is at least for his age) or to have the ability to add certain shows so that he’s only watching what I’m okay with him watching. Other than this I love the app, it’s convenient, he can flip through he shows and watch Daniel Tiger and if he’s bored with that he can switch to Sesame Street, etc.
I love it by Princesss sky
My favorite show is odd squad it’s so much fun to watch because it has so much detail and the costumes are so amazing so back to the app , This is a really good app because if you’re really into shells like those you will really like them. If you have the PBS Kids games app there is the PBS Kids mascot just click on that and tap on the games and then I’ll bring you to the game section and there’s so many games you can play in the same process if you want to go back to the videos just click on the PBS Kids mascot click on the video and then you’ll be back there
Wonderful app for children by dina102684
This is a wonderful app for young kids as it’s curated by pbs for kids and I don’t have to worry about weird stuff like what’s on YouTube. My kids love all the shows however on my Apple TV I’m encountering a problem. Anytime I hit Clifford the Big Dog the app kicks me out to the Apple TV menu. It has yet to work for me.
