KCTS 9 has come a long way since its founding in 1954. Back then, an aerial antenna and TV set were the only way to watch. Nowadays, KCTS 9 is a multi-platform television station, which is available on a wide variety of platforms.
KCTS 9 Roku app
Try the new KCTS 9 Roku app, our newest — and possibly best — way to watch. Our Roku app delivers all your favorite shows in a slick, easy-to-use interface. Watch many of our broadcast programs on-demand, on your own schedule. Or drop in on livestreams of our linear channels, KCTS 9, WORLD, Create and PBS KIDS (U.S.-only.)
KCTS 9 Passport members in the U.S. and Canada have even more to love about this new app. Members get access to an extended library of PBS favorites and exclusive members-only acquisitions from around the globe. It’s one of the most exciting benefits of membership!
Use another OTT platform? We’ve got you covered with the PBS Video App (scroll down.)
There’s plenty to watch right here at KCTS9.org, including many of your favorite PBS programs and local originals. As with the Roku app, KCTS 9 Passport Members receive access to an expanded selection of shows, including member exclusives.
Livestreams of KCTS 9, WORLD, PBS KIDS and Create (coming Jan. 1) are available on this website, with availability restrictions due to licensing:
- Seattle-area users can stream for free with or without a membership
- KCTS 9 Passport members can log in and stream from anywhere in the United States
