Why are some PBS shows only available for online streaming for members with the Passport benefit?

PBS strives to obtain streaming rights for catch-up viewing for everyone for all of its programming. The vast majority of PBS shows are made available for streaming for at least two weeks after its initial national broadcast for catch-up viewing for all viewers. However, there are certain instances in which PBS can only obtain Passport availability.
