Why don’t you show my favorite old PBS program anymore?

Vegas PBS purchases the broadcast rights for all programs. The “rights” tell us how many times we can broadcast a program within a certain period of time. This is generally four times over a three or four year period, although it could be much shorter or on occasion, longer. At the end of that time period, Vegas PBS is not able legally to broadcast the program. Occasionally programs that have expired will become available again so additional rights can be purchased by Vegas PBS. Sometimes older programs are available for purchase from Shop PBS.

How can I purchase a video of a show?

A complete listing of videos currently offered through PBS is available at Shop PBS. You can order programs from this site or by calling Shop PBS at 800.531.4PBS. For information on videos for continuing series such as Nature, Mystery! or Frontline, please visit the specific program's website for availability and ordering information.

How can I submit an idea for a show or a program offer?

Program offers can be sent to:

Vegas PBS
Attn: Programming Department
3050 E. Flamingo Road
Las Vegas, NV 89121


If you would like to submit an idea for a show and need a production cost estimate, email our Production Department or call 702.799.1010, x5368.

Where can I find the website for a certain program?

All national and local programs are listed under Shows. Many of these programs have a companion website; and all programs have at least basic program information. Just click on the program title in this list.

Where can I find a recipe from one of the cooking programs I saw on Vegas PBS?

We often get inquiries for the wonderful recipes featured on the how-to cooking programs that air on Vegas PBS. While we wish we had immediate access to all of them, unfortunately we do not. Vegas PBS has the same access to the recipes as our audience members. While some of the cooking programs offer free access to their recipes via the Internet, others create cookbooks for purchase as a source of generating revenue to help offset their production costs. Here is recipe information for the cooking programs Vegas PBS is currently broadcasting:
