I also found out that In my area, both my PBS stations airing it , the main one is airing at 6:30pm after Arthur, and the one that's more independent is airing at 7:30pm after Mr. Rogers.

Also, Many PBS stations stream live online now, you can watch it on the PBS app on Roku and Fire fore example and your computer. If your station is one of the ones that are in the system now...

This is like the Rankin Bass specials that Freeform airs. Those specials are not available on the Freeform app and they replaced it with The Middle when you watch the live feed on there website with a cable provider.

It happens with CBS airings too, because I've seen people online talk about how they can't see it on Youtube TV and some of the others. Santa Cluas is comin' to town adn Little Drummer Boy were allowed though, The Warner owned Rankin Bass specials are allowed to be streamed online, AMC puts them on their site/app.

When Peanuts were on ABC, they had the right to air them online live stream and on demand rights (even Hulu got to join in) Apple just let PBS air them on TV, and didn't even want online live stream simulcast as an option. kind of silly really.


------------------

I watched the specials twice tonight (because I could) and they were un edited like ABC, was nice to not have ads in the way. Hope PBS gets to do this next year, and maybe with the Valentine's specials and maybe somebody will care about the Easter one again.
