PBS account provides a way for you to establish a unique PBS profile and maintain a singular identity across all PBS ecosystems. PBS account may be used to access PBS products like COVE Bento and MerlinMedia Manager.

titleImportant things to remember
  • PBS account is required to access the Merlin Admin Tool.
  • Newly created accounts will not have immediate access to the admin tool.
  • PBS must update account permissions for all new accounts before you can add content to Merlin.
  • Once PBS has received your username(s), you will be set up in Merlin (for stations, your station group will be set up). You will then receive a confirmation email letting you know that access to the Merlin admin tool has been granted and you may begin adding content to the database.

(info) Stations can request additional PBS accounts be created by submitting a support ticket and include the PBS usernames that need to be added.
