Is PBS Passport available outside the U.S.?

Most PBS streaming video – including PBS Passport – is available only within the United States. 

PBS is not a producer, but rather a distributor of programming. Our distribution rights are fairly limited and are generally confined to dissemination within the United States.

While over-the-air broadcasts reach beyond U.S. borders, online video is subject to geo-filtering, which restricts the areas that can view PBS content. PBS is legally obligated to ensure each program does not exceed its granted rights, which unfortunately eliminates international streaming ability for PBS programs outside the US.

We regret not being able to offer all our content online to our supporters.
