Using PBS Passport as a Canadian Member

What content is available to Canadian members with PBS Passport?

Canadian members with PBS Passport can view most Passport content on PBS.org.

Although we will be expanding our PBS Passport library for Canadian Passport members, there may be a small number of shows that will be restricted to the U.S. or have slightly different availability windows. PBS must obtain the streaming rights for every program offered on our site, and these rights can be different between the US and Canada.

If a program does not appear on our site when you search for it by keyword, the program is unavailable for streaming in your area.

How can I watch Passport content as a Canadian resident?

To watch Passport content, visit PBS.org and sign in at the top of the site with your PBS account after activating your Passport benefit. 

Currently, PBS Passport in Canada is only available for viewing on supported web browsers and on the PBS Video channel. In the near future, we plan to expand PBS Passport viewing onto other device platforms, but currently the PBS Video app is unavailable for most devices in Canada.

Not all help articles at help.pbs.org may apply if you reside in Canada, like our articles on downloading and activating the PBS app on streaming devices.
