PBS

     
PBS
Public Broadcasting System
a US television company whose aim is to show good-quality programmes and not to make profits. It broadcasts no advertisements, but its programmes are paid for partly by the people who watch them and partly by money from the government and from large companies. Two programmes for which PBS is famous are Sesame Street and Masterpiece Theater.
