How do I activate the PBS Video app?

The PBS Video app is available for download on select streaming devices. Below are the instructions for activating the app once it's installed on your streaming device.

For detailed instructions on activating your streaming device:

Once you've downloaded the PBS Video app to your device, return to the device's home screen and select the PBS Video app icon to open the app.

If you have not yet activated the PBS Video app, a screen will appear prompting you to activate the PBS Video 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.

From a mobile device or computer, visit and enter your unique code. Select Continue.

Sign in with a Facebook, Google, or PBS account. If you do not have one of these three account options, select Don't have a PBS account? Create one here. If you have the PBS Passport benefit, sign in with the same account you originally linked to your Passport benefit.

After signing in, a screen should appear confirming that your device has been activated. 

Return to your device where the screen should update to show the home screen of the PBS Video app.
