What is PBS Passport?


PBS Passport is a 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 features episodes from popular programs, including American Experience, American Masters, Antiques Roadshow, Nature, NOVA, and Masterpiece. 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. 

Local stations give the Passport benefit to their supporters who qualify for their Passport membership benefit. Each station can set their own qualifications for Passport, but most stations give the benefit to members who donate at least $60 a year, or $5 Sustainer/Ongoing-monthly gifts. For the most accurate information, please contact your local station or visit their website.

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