  1. My experience is like that of a majority of reviewers; the app just plain refuses to connect to PBS servers.I tried continuouslybafter downloading last night, to no avail. I had hoped PBS may have resolved this but trying again this evening gives the same result. App has great promise but delivers a big ZERO!
