Public broadcasting heavyweights WGBH Boston and Thirteen/WNET New York have united to launch the digital channels World and Create, available in their home markets April 1.

World will feature documentary series and specials in the areas of science, nature, history and culture, including ‘Nova’, BBC World News and Ken Burns American Stories. Create will feature lifestyle programming focused on renovation, gardening, hobbies and cooking with titles such as This Old House and One Stroke Painting with Donna Dewberry. The channels, available to digital subscribers as well as over-the-air to viewers with digital receivers, will mine the respective broadcasters’ programming libraries.

Additionally, Thirteen/WNET and WGBH plan to work with the Public Broadcasting Service to roll out future digital services, since PBS recently received a grant to expand public affairs programs across the digital realm. KV
