Just great

I love PBS, but have found their app frustrating at times, so imagine my delight that the new KCTS9 app is so nice to use! I have it on both my phone and Roku, and it’s straightforward and well thought-out on both. The only issue I’ve had is that I have accidentally skipped forward a few times when trying to pause in the phone app, which I think is more an issue of getting used to the UI than a development problem. I know I’ll make more use of my Passport subscription now. Kudos to KCTS9!

Happy with the app!

Works well overall - looking forward to using it regularly 🙂



Before releasing an app you need to test it. I paid $60 for year subscription and….nothing. You made the ability to charge a credit card right. But the app doesn’t work at all—and no access to Apple TV either. Get it together, or pull it until ready.
