PBS World is a 24-hour digital channel showing PBS documentaries, primarily science, current affairs, and history programs. It launched in 2006 as a joint venture between PBS, Boston's WGBH, and New York City's WNET.

On 15 August 2007, the channel launched nationwide, at which time it reached 26% of American homes.

With the mandatory conversion to digital television, the channel is expected to eventually reach all American homes within range of a PBS affiliate station.
