Below are a few helpful questions and answers. For more help, visit the PBS Help Desk .

Can I watch the livestream from any location or change between PBS station's streams?
You can only watch the livestream from WXXI-TV, which serves your broadcast area. You will be unable to view the live stream of a PBS station outside of your geographic area. If you are served by multiple PBS stations in your broadcast area, you can change your local station on the site to view other station live streams.

What devices can I use to watch the livestream?
You can watch the livestream on your computer or on other devices that support the following web browsers: Google Chrome - Mozilla Firefox - Safari - Microsoft Edge

While other web browsers can visit PBS.org - such as Amazon Silk or third-party browsers included on Smart TVs - these web browsers are not officially supported and we cannot guarantee video playback or offer troubleshooting for these unsupported browsers.

You can also watch the livestream on the PBS Video Channel on Roku devices. On the PBS Video channel home screen, select Live TV at the top of the channel to begin watching. Press OK on your remote to begin watching.

The livestream is not available on the PBS Video app on other devices at this time, but we are working on bringing live streaming to other devices in the near future.

Do I need to be a Passport benefit member or pay a fee to watch the livestream on PBS.org?
You do not need to be a member of WXXI in order to watch WXXI-TV's livestream. There is no fee required, and you will not be prompted to enter any payment information before watching the live stream.

Does my WXXI-TV's livestream match what's airing on their television broadcast? How can I see the program schedule for my PBS station's live stream?
WXXI-TV's livestream may not always match what's airing on our broadcast. Online schedules are currently not available for the PBS.org live stream, but we hope to offer this feature in an upcoming update.

I saw a program on WXXI-TV's livestream and would like to watch it again. Can I watch the program elsewhere?Unfortunately, due to the different legal rights required in order to offer videos on our site and app, not every program is available for streaming outside of the live stream. It's possible that PBS or your local station may only have the rights to offer a program through television broadcast or the live stream, and cannot offer the program outside of those two options.

If you are interested in a program that is unavailable through streaming with PBS, we recommend checking your local station's TV schedule for any possible re-airings of the program. You may also be able to purchase the program through Shop PBS or a third party, such as Amazon Video or Apple iTunes. If you would like to request a specific program for streaming on PBS.org, please email us at help@pbs.org.

The PBS.org site and PBS Video app offer thousands of videos for streaming at your convenience, including popular programs such as Nature, Masterpiece, NOVA, American Experience, and more.
