I’m not seeing my favorite PBS show in Arizona PBS Passport. Why not?

Initially, several hundred hours of content will be available via Arizona PBS Passport. This library of content will continue to grow over time as more titles are added.

I cannot afford to donate at this time. Is there a way for me to view this content?

All broadcast content remains available to all viewers on air per our broadcast schedule. Most programs are then available online and on mobile for at least two weeks and, in some cases, longer. We believe the new arrangement allows for ample viewing of excellent content, albeit for a more limited time for some programs.
