No Arthur on my main local PBS station

Post by MarleyandPal96 on Mon Sep 11, 2017 3:48 pm

I'm probably going to miss the new episodes not only because I'm busy with things, but also because PBS station WTVS (Detroit Public TV) won't play Arthur anymore, it was replaced by a local program. You're thinking....uh, isn't there a 24/7 PBS Kids channel? Well I have one, but it won't play these new episodes in HD.


I want to see them when they first air (I no longer have a morning airing, so weekday afternoon or nothing). There's nothing more special than tuning into a new Arthur episode.

What should I do?

Why not just go out and play kickball or something?

Online streaming is totally in the days.

So I would try to see if other streaming sites will pick up the new season (but most likely requires a subscription)

I have the feeling it would only be the PBS app though and youwhotube the day after someone uploads it.

I wish PBS needs to reschedule the Kids shows on the weekdays (Monday-Friday)...

6:30am - The Cat in the Hat Knows About That
7:00am - Arthur
7:30am - Ready Jet Go
8:00am - Wild Kratts
8:30am - Nature Cat
9:00am - Curious George
9:30am - Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood
10:00am - Splash and Bubbles
10:30am - Splash and Bubbles
11:00am - Sesame Street
11:30am - Sesame Street
12:00pm - Super Why!
12:30pm - Peg + Cat
1:00pm - Dinosaur Train
1:30pm - Odd Squad

Now that's the way it should be.

Here's what my PBS's current weekday kids show schedule is:

6:00am - THOMAS & FRIENDS
6:30am - THE CAT IN THE HAT KNOWS A LOT ABOUT THAT
7:00am - Local programming (an exercize show)
7:30am - WILD KRATTS
8:00am - NATURE CAT
8:30am - CURIOUS GEORGE
9:00am - CURIOUS GEORGE
9:30am - DANIEL TIGER'S NEIGHBORHOOD
10:00am - DANIEL TIGER'S NEIGHBORHOOD
10:30am - SPLASH AND BUBBLES
11:00am - SPLASH AND BUBBLES
11:30am - SESAME STREET
12:00n - SESAME STREET
12:30pm - SUPER WHY!
1:00pm - PEG + CAT
1:30pm - DINOSAUR TRAIN
2:00pm - READY JET GO!
2:30pm - NATURE CAT
3:00pm - NATURE CAT (repeat of 8:00 broadcast)
3:30pm - WILD KRATTS
4:00pm - WILD KRATTS (repeat of 7:30 broadcast)
4:30pm - ODD SQUAD
5:00pm - ODD SQUAD
5:30pm - Local programming (academic game show)
6:00pm - Local programming (math call-in show)

Rather than being so repetitive with some of these shows with back-to-back episodes, they could surely make room for ARTHUR and other PBS Kids shows to fill the time with.

Sorry, but I got DirecTV, and the PBS Kids block on the weekdays stopped after Dinosaur Train at 1:30pm...
