The PBS documentary 'Prohibition' by Ken Burns will premiere on iPhones, iPads, and the iPod. The doc will show via a free streaming video app on the mobile devices before it plays on TV.
"PBS' strategy of debuting high-profile shows on the iPad and iPhone before television broadcast has been enormously popular with users," Jason Seiken, PBS' senior vice president for Interactive, Product Development & Innovation, said in a statement. "Users of our apps watched more than 52 million video streams last month. The early premiere of the first episode of Ken Burns's and Lynn Novick's much anticipated 'Prohibition' is part of our ongoing mission to provide all Americans with content where and when they want it."
