Do I have to choose a local station to use the Passport benefit?

Yes. PBS Passport is a new member benefit from participating PBS stations, and in order to take advantage of it you must identify your station. 

You can select any station in the country by searching by state or zip code, or find the station that is closest to where you live. 

Keep in mind that the station to which you donate when signing up for the PBS Passport member benefit is the same station you need to select on PBS.org when you want to view Passport content. For example, if you donate to KQED, please check that you are localized to KQED on the PBS website and app.

Learn how to change your station

If you are using the PBS Video app on a streaming device, you can change your local station through the Profile menu within the PBS Video app.
