How do I find out if I’ve already activated my Passport benefit?
I am a member of KCPT and have made an annual contribution for many years. Do I need to make an additional contribution in order to receive the KCPT Passport member benefit?
If you already donate to KCPT and have made the minimum contribution necessary ($60 annually), you simply need to activate your KCPT Passport account.
If I do not have a KCPT Passport account, will I still be able to watch shows on PBS.org and KCPT’s site for free?
Of course! Free is not going away. Many of our shows are available for free on various digital platforms, including PBS.org, our mobile applications, and the PBS channels on Roku, Apple TV and other streaming services. And of course, PBS shows will continue to be broadcast to the public for free on all four of our channels. PBS Passport is a member benefit that allows extended access to some shows when their streaming rights have expired or they have otherwise become unavailable for general streaming.
Does KCPT Passport work with Chromecast?
Can I stream Passport content on my Apple TV?
Yes, you can stream Passport videos with Apple TV once you’ve activated your KCPT Passport account. To watch Passport videos on your Apple TV, please make sure the email account you used to activate KCPT Passport is the same as the email account you used to activate the PBS app on the Apple TV.
