Enjoy the most popular shows from PBS anywhere, anytime, including Masterpiece hits* like Poldark, Downton Abbey, Mr.Selfridge, Wolf Hall, as well as Nature, NOVA, and more.We were greeted with this notice today: NBC is dropping all their video podcasts, without explanation.They’re also dropping don’t have this notice yet, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see that happen.RSS, semantic markup, microformats, and open APIs all enable interoperability, but the big players don’t want that — they want to lock you in.[…] RSS represents the antithesis of [vendor lock-in]: it’s completely open, decentralized, and owned by nobody, just like the web itself.NBC isn’t the only one to drop their news video feeds; CBS and ABC seem to have dropped theirs a while ago.

I would encourage you to show Rachel Maddow support for this.UPDATE (2015-02-15): As of yesterday – Valentine’s Day of all days – the NBC podcasts are discontinued.The closest replacement I’m aware of is the PBS News Hour You Tube Channel or PBS News Hour Video RSS Feed (not a video podcast, unfortunately).Forcing the content through an app is a step backwards.Marco Arment of Instapaper fame described this well when he wrote about RSS, the technology behind video podcasts: This isn’t an issue of “openness”, per se — Twitter, for instance, has very good reasons to limit its API.

"PBS Video" features thousands of full-length videos from your favorite PBS shows and local stations with new videos added daily.

The official PBS NewsHour Iphone app provides video, audio and headline news to users over Wifi or 3G connections. The app. On iPhone 7 with latest updates installed, in one section of the app, I can view primary news video presidential press statement- but not supplied in context with commentary etc. In the main.
