When you first download the PBS app to your Android Smart TV, the app will need to be activated before you can begin streaming videos.
Open the PBS app. Select Activate Now.
Activation instructions will appear on the screen along with a 7-character, alphanumeric activation code.
Every device has its own unique code, so double-check your device's code before proceeding.
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.
If you have the PBS Passport benefit, sign in with the same account you originally linked to your Passport benefit.
If you do not have one of the account options, select Not registered yet? Create a PBS Account. Click here to learn more about creating a PBS account.
Once you have signed in with an account, you'll receive a message that your device was successfully activated.
Return to your Android TV's PBS app. The screen will update to show the app's Home screen where you can begin exploring and viewing our available offerings. For more information on using the PBS app, click here.
