PASSPORT PROGRAMS


What kinds of programs can I see with Passport?

The library features episodes from popular PBS programs like American Experience, American Masters, Antiques Roadshow, Nature, NOVA, and Masterpiece — including all six seasons of Downton Abbey. Along with these signature series, the library is full of Public Television’s acclaimed arts, science, history, and lifestyle programs. You'll also find WLRN’s extensive library of original productions telling the vast and varied history of South Florida as well as so much more!

How can I view Passport programs?

Passport programs can be viewed on your computer or number of streamng devices by visiting pbs.org/video. If you have a smartphone or tablet, download the PBS app for an even better viewing experience. You can access PBS Passport programs through Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire TV or Amazon Fire Stick. Passport is even compatible with Chromecast!

Why can't I find programs like Doc Martin, Death in Paradise or other episodes of my favorite shows?

PBS is not a producer but rather a distributor of programming. Certain programs have limited streaming rights or are only available for broadcast distribution. Additionally, local member stations such as WLRN are individually owned and operated and therefore schedule independently. This includes our ability to acquire programming from sources other than PBS such as American Public Television (APT) and BBC Worldwide.

How can I search for Passport programs only?

Visit pbs.org/video and enter a search term, such as “masterpiece” or “nova”. Click on ”Show Filters” and then click on the WLRN Passport Videos link under “Filter by Access.” In addition to Passport videos, you can filter by shows, types or video link.

DEVICE SETUP


How do I set up my Roku, Amazon Fire or Apple TV?

(You will do this at the time of your contribution to WLRN. See questions above.) Find the PBS channel on your device.
