PBS Passport is a new member benefit from participating PBS stations that gives eligible donors and supporters extended access to an on-demand library of quality public television programming online.  The PBS Passport library currently offers members more than 1,000 episodes to watch, with new PBS programs being added weekly. The library features episodes from popular programs like American Experience, American Masters, Antiques Roadshow, Nature, NOVA, and Masterpiece — including all five seasons of Downton Abbey. In addition to these signature series, the library is full of public television’s acclaimed arts, science, history, and lifestyle programs; including How We Got to Now, Earth a New Wild, Austin City Limits, and a rotating selection of films from Ken Burns — currently Jazz and Unforgivable Blackness The Rise and Fall of Jack Johnson are available.  

If you are interested in the PBS Passport member benefit or are already a contributor, please contact your local station and ask about eligibility and membership activation.
