Love PBS

I love PBS and don’t want to know what life would be like without it. Yes, Passport has a fee, but so does Netflix, etc. Plus, the programs are top quality without annoying commercials every 5 minutes. For 5$ a month you can immerse yourself in classic films, amazing wildlife programs, original dramas written by brilliant playwrights and superbly acted with highly talented performers. Not to forget the many wonderful musical concerts from many venues. Splurge once and explore the wonder of quality television.
Many of these programs are presented free of charge during regular programming. However, if you miss it or would like to watch again, your Passport membership takes you there...more.

Greedy Premium Broadcasting Service

The app doesn't seem to let me watching TV from my cable subscription. It requires membership with requires a payment. This is rather greedy. Many other app, like CNN and CNBC, let me watch TV programs using my cable subscription.

Even if we Ignore cable subscription, the "Public Broadcasting Service" is supposed to serve those who do not have money to pay for TV service. With the requirement of paid membership, the PBS does not serve those who do not have money. This is not public service. The name of PBS is now meaning "Premium Broadcasting Service."

At times I was thinking of donating money to PBS, but I held back because I realized that my donation serves only those who are rich enough to pay for PBS membership. The donation will never benefit those poor kids. I am happy to donate to help the poor. But, what's the point to donate to help the rich?

Great content, dismal streaming

It’s PBS, it’s an American classic. Unfortunately if you want to stream it this app is infuriating. The chromecast support is terrible, it fails to cast 50% of the time, never remembers where you left off and god forbid you want to rewind EVER. Once streaming you have no control over the video as it always reads as 00:00. The most insulting part is that even when you donate to PBS as a passport member you are still forced to watch an ad every time you stream. (The most insulting part being that the ad ALWAYS loads even when the episode fails. So you watch a whole ad just for it to finish and just stream the PBS logo.) Best solution I have found so far is disconnecting from chromecast go to the episode and spot you want on your phone, then reconnect, still only works about 70% of the time but still better.
