How do I log into my Passport account on my Apple TV?

If you are looking for the PBS website to activate your streaming device, please enter into your web browser's address bar or click this link.

For detailed instructions on activating your streaming device:

Once you have activated your PBS Passport account, follow the steps below to link your Passport account to your Apple TV.

At the bottom of the app's left-hand menu, select Profile.

At the bottom of the settings menu, there is an option to Change Account > Log Out (if you have an Apple TV 4) or Deactivate (if you have an Apple TV 2/3). Select this option on your Apple TV and confirm.

  • A screen indicating the app needs to be activated appears. 
  • Activation instructions are displayed on the screen along with a 7-character activation code.
  • Go to your computer and open a browser such as Chrome, Firefox, or Safari.
  • In the address bar, type  
  • Enter the seven-character activation code in the textbox provided. This is NOT your Passport activation code.
  • Click Continue.

  • You are taken to a new page asking you to sign in with a Google, Facebook, or PBS account. 
  • Choose the same account you used when you activated Passport. If you sign in with a different email address, you will not be signed in with your Passport account and will be unable to watch Passport videos.

  • Return to your Apple TV. It has been automatically updated and you can begin watching Passport videos.
