Does KEET's live stream match what's airing on its television broadcast? How can I see the program schedule for KEET's live stream?

KEET's live stream may not always match what's airing on its broadcast. Online schedules are currently not available for the live stream, but we hope to offer this feature in an upcoming update.

I saw a program on KEET's live stream and would like to watch it again. Can I watch the program elsewhere?

The PBS.org site and PBS Video app offer thousands of videos for streaming at your convenience, including popular programs such as Nature, Masterpiece, NOVA, American Experience, and more.

We recommend exploring our Shows page to find a specific program you're interested in watching.

Unfortunately, due to the different legal rights required in order to offer videos on our site and app, not every program is available for streaming outside of the live stream. It's possible that PBS or KEET may only have the rights to offer a program through television broadcast or the live stream, and cannot offer the program outside of those two options.

If you are interested in a program that is unavailable through streaming with PBS, we recommend checking KEET's TV schedule for any possible re-airings of the program. You may also be able to purchase the program through Shop PBS or a third party, such as Amazon Video or Apple iTunes. If you would like to request a specific program for streaming, please email help@pbs.org.

Troubleshooting

Error Message: We could not determine your device's location.

If you're receiving this error message, you most likely need to enable location sharing on your device or browser. Please select your browser below to see instructions for enabling this feature on your device.

Error Message: The livestream is not available in your current location.

This error message can appear if you attempt to view the live stream of a PBS station outside of your area. KEET can only offer its live stream to users in its service area. Click here for more suggestions.

Error Message: Something went wrong while getting your device's location.

We recommend clicking the Try Again button beneath this error message to refresh the live stream. If the issue persists, click here for more suggestions.

The live stream is stuttering, buffering, pausing, or freezing.

The live stream will automatically try to offer you the smoothest playback experience possible on your network, but network connectivity issues can happen.

If you notice frequent playback issues with the live stream that do not resolve on their own, we recommend checking to see if you have any other streams or downloads in progress, both on PBS.org or on your network.

If the issue persists, you can try to temporarily lowering the quality of your live stream to reduce the demand on your network. You can manage this setting by clicking the gear icon in the lower right corner of the live stream, and selecting an option from the list that appears, such as 720p, 540p, or 432p. A lower kbps selection can offer smoother playback.

If issues persist, we recommend trying the other suggestions on our streaming help page linked here.
