It’s always a beautiful day in the neighborhood, even half a century later. PBS is teaming with Twitch once again to stream every episode of Mister Rogers Neighborhood, in celebration of the show’s 50th anniversary, as well as what would’ve been Fred Rogers’ 90th birthday.
In a press release, Twitch announced it will be livestreaming all 856 episodes of Mister Rogers Neighborhood. Since it’s partially to celebrate the birth of the man who brought joy to millions of kids, the livestream will start with the show’s 90 greatest episodes, followed by a complete run of the series. This isn’t the first time Twitch has done this—a similar livestream happened last year as a PBS fundraising event. It won’t be raising money this year (there will be a “call to action” on the official page, we’ve learned), however, this time Twitch users can add their own commentary by co-streaming it on their channels.
The livestream also comes as Focus Features gets ready to release its Rogers documentary, Won’t You Be My Neighbor, this summer. The livestream starts here tomorrow at 1:00 pm EST.
