Who we are
PBS is one of America's most valued brands, held in high esteem for its award winning quality public service output. With the objective of making PBS's rich offering of award-winning science, history and current affairs programming available to British viewers, the UK PBS channel is a joint venture between Canadian-born entrepreneur and venture philanthropist, David Lyons, and PBS Distribution (PBSd), which holds the international rights to the majority of PBS's programming.
Jonathan Allan, Channel 4's Sales Director said: 'PBS and Channel 4 have a natural synergy - in becoming their sales house we're helping bring the best public service programming from the US to a UK audience. The deal reinforces Channel 4 Sales' position as the premium sales house for high quality public service content.'
