Flex: How can I pin PBS to the Flex home screen? Where can I find series I have marked as favorites?

I already have Amazon Fire TV, which is way easier to use. How can I access the PBS app without having to search for it every time? Can I pin it to the Flex home screen? Where can I find the series I have marked as favorites? Flex is pretty useless without those abilities.

There’s no pinning option available.
Use the voice command favorites or PBS

Thanks, but no thanks. I'll stick with Fire TV.

Where are you watching PBS? Is it within another app?

On Amazon Fire TV and elsewhere, PBS has its own easy-to-use app. It doesn't seem to have one on Xfinity Flex, though. I sure can't find one. If I want to watch any PBS programs, I have to go to my search history and click the PBS icon there. Then I have access to the programs, some of which I have marked as favorites, but there is no one place to view favorites.

 

I am finding Flex terribly user-unfriendly! Amazon Fire TV is much, much easier to use!
