How do I sign in with my Passport account on my Amazon Fire TV?

Once you have activated your PBS Passport account, you can follow the steps below to sign in with your Passport account on your Amazon Fire TV. 

Open the PBS app on your device.

In the left navigation, scroll down and select Profile.

In the Profile menu, select the Change Account option.

Confirm that you would like to Log Out of the account on your app. This will deactivate the app.

The PBS app will ask you to activate the app. Select Activate Now.

Activation instructions appear on the screen along with a 7-character activation code.

Every device has its own unique code, so double-check your device's code before proceeding.

For Step 1, you will need to use a mobile device or computer to visit PBS.org/activate or use your smartphone's camera to scan the QR code on the TV screen to be taken directly to PBS.org/activate.

Enter your unique code listed in Step 2 into the Activation Code box on PBS.org/activate. Select Continue.

You will then be prompted to sign in with a PBS account or through Google, Facebook, or Apple.

Sign in with the same account you originally linked to your Passport benefit.

A screen should appear confirming that your Fire TV device has been activated. Return to your Fire TV where the screen should update to show the home screen of the PBS app.

For more help with activating the app, please see our help page here.
