DPTV Livestream

Detroit-area viewers can now enjoy all PBS and DPTV programming anytime, anywhere on their computers, tablets or mobile devices.

Due to rights restrictions, Detroit Public TV must limit the availability of its video livestreams. We allow free access to anyone visiting our website from within our Greater Detroit broadcast area — if you can watch DPTV over-the-air, you should be able to stream it via the website.

Unfortunately, we currently do not have rights to livestream to Canada.

If our system made a mistake about your location, please contact us and we will work to correct the error.
