Why sponsor PBS?

PBS offers national corporate sponsors the unique opportunity to reach new audiences by aligning with award-winning, trusted content in an environment where brands stand out.

Uncluttered, uninterrupted, category exclusive — the PBS Halo Effect extends PBS’s credibility to our sponsors. A Kantar research study shows that viewers believe PBS corporate sponsors are forward-thinking, innovative, and committed to quality and excellence.

And it works! Viewers are 2X more likely to purchase a product or service from a PBS national corporate sponsor.
