PBS Gets PC…

…no, the other kind of PC. Starting today, PBS goes the way of Hulu, making several programs available streaming on your computer via the PBS Video portal, including Masterpiece (including the recent Little Dorrit), Antiques Roadshow, Frontline and other public TV programs. (PBS Kids has been streaming children’s shows online since fall.)

PBS is also using the beta site to debut  Time Team America before its launch on regular TV this summer. Despite the title, the show—which visits U.S. archaeological dig sites—has nothing to do with this magazine, time travel or filthy-mouthed marionettes having sex.
