PBS Distribution Rolls Out Doc Channel in Canada


PBS Distribution has launched PBS Documentaries, a new documentary-focused Prime Video channel, in Canada.

Similar to its U.S. counterpart, the subscription-based streaming channel will include content from PBS’s library, including documentaries and factual series across genres and the complete portfolio of Ken Burns’ works.

“We are delighted to offer a significant volume of high-quality content, including our award-winning documentaries to fans in Canada”, says Andrea Downing, president of PBS Distribution. “This offering complements our successful launch of the PBS Masterpiece Prime Video channel in Canada.”

“We’re thrilled that Canadian audiences will now be able to see all of our past films through the PBS Documentaries Prime Video channel,” said Burns. “When the channel launched in the U.S. a few years ago, it fulfilled a dream that we’d had for many years—for our full library of work to live in one easily accessible destination. We also look forward to adding our next film—our first non-American subject—Leonardo da Vinci, to this collection in November.”
