“We are thrilled to offer this latest benefit to our members. As viewing patterns continue to evolve, LPB Passport provides member access to a library of quality public broadcasting programming whenever and wherever they want to watch it,” said Beth Courtney, President and CEO of Louisiana Public Broadcasting.
In addition to the LPB website, LPB Passport will also be available to members when they identify LPB as their local PBS member station on PBS.org and the PBS Video apps for iOS and Android smartphones and tablets, as well as the PBS app on AppleTV. LPB Passport will be available on more platforms in the future. Station members must activate their account before they can access LPB Passport.
LPB Passport is the newest member benefit available from LPB for donors with a yearly contribution of at least $60 or an ongoing monthly contribution of $5 or more. It cannot be purchased separately. PBS and LPB content will continue to be available for free after its broadcast premiere on PBS.org, LPB website, and other digital platforms.
