KQED Passport

KQED Passport is a new member benefit that gives eligible donors and supporters extended access to an on-demand library of quality public television programming online. The KQED Passport library currently offers members more than 1,000 episodes to watch, with new PBS and KQED programs being added weekly.

The library features episodes from popular programs like American Experience, American Masters, Antiques Roadshow, Nature, NOVA, and Masterpiece — including all five seasons of Downton Abbey. In addition to these signature series, the library is full of public television’s acclaimed arts, science, history, and lifestyle programs; including How We Got to Now, Earth a New Wild, Austin City Limits, and a rotating selection of films from Ken Burns — currently Jazz and Unforgivable Blackness: The Rise and Fall of Jack Johnson are available.

Look for the blue compass icon next to programs that are Passport-eligible.
