WXXI Passport... a new member benefit

We are well into the final season of Downton Abbey and we hope you’re enjoying each and every episode. Downton continues to be one of our most popular Masterpiece presentations. Remember, if you miss an episode, you can watch it the next day online at video.pbs.org.

I also want to remind you about a new Member Benefit. If you are a WXXI member at the $60 level or above, you have access to WXXI Passport, a benefit that provides you with current and archival programs from PBS and WXXI. Passport allows you to watch some of our most popular programming on your computer, your tablet or even on your smartphone. It gives you special access to Downton Abbey, other dramas from Masterpiece, plus favorites such as Vicious, Makers, and The Great British Baking Show. If you contribute at the $60 level or more, you should have received an email last December giving details about Passport and a personalized passcode to access this service. If you missed the notice, or if you’d like to increase your membership gift to access this benefit, please feel free to call our Membership Department at 585-258-0200. They’ll be happy to assist!

My sincere thanks go to public radio listeners who took the step to become public radio members last week! Whether it is the trusted news that AM 1370 provides, the soaring sounds from Rochester's only classical station on Classical 91.5, or the local and thoughtfully different music on WRUR and WITH — you affirmed the value that the WXXI family of radio services provides this community.
