Review the checklist
Before creating and submitting your proposal make sure you have:
Complete the proposal form
The form below contains important questions that need to be answered before PBS can consider embarking on a mobile app partnership with you. Please be as thorough as possible when filling out the form.
After submitting your proposal for review, PBS will respond in one of the three following ways:
|Outcome||What this means|
|OK to move forward immediately with full PBS support.|
|Approve with conditions*||Resources not immediately available or app development is not intended to begin right away. This means PBS will revisit your project with intentions to provide support.|
|Reject||PBS will not be involved in app development. Depending on the situation regarding rights, the producer may or may not be able to produce and distribute the app independently.|
*Notes on Approve with conditions status:
- Reserved for projects that are 6+ months from starting.
- Should go through review process as soon as possible.
- Project will undergo another review as start date approaches; final approval will be contingent upon that review.
- Final review will require updates to the concept and platform choice(s) to reflect original goals but adapt to the then-current platform capabilities and market environment.
With each app proposal, it is PBS' intention to maintain an iterative dialog with producers and seek Q&A throughout the entire process.
PBS has the first right of refusal for any Mobile Application. If PBS declines to publish your Mobile Application, you have the right to publish independently of PBS, without PBS branding.
