How to Find and Watch Pinterest TV
Pinterest TV is currently accessible on iOS devices through the Pinterest app and any web browser at pinterest.com/tv. Pinterest plans to offer Android versions of Pinterest TV as soon as possible, with additional features and new formats to follow shortly after that.
Every day at 11 AM Eastern time, the new series will be made available. The episodes are recorded and may be watched on demand. Viewers will be able to keep and rewatch Pinterest TV shows they enjoy.
To watch episodes, communicate with hosts, ask questions through chat, and get answers in real time, open the Pinterest app and click the TV logo in the upper left corner. Make sure to have the most recent version of the Pinterest app installed on your device.
