Trying to mirror my iPad to my Apple TV using this app. I get just audio with a black screen. Why can’t they make this app usable?

The Apple TV app does not work

The Apple TV app just launches a splash screen. Nothing happens after and can not access the content.

Free

Facebook advertising says free. Free what’s free. It’s not free. No thanks. Deleted app. Bye bye. See you on another streaming service. You did yourself a big disservice.

Needs much improvement!

While I appreciate the idea behind Passport, the app makes it challenging to actually use. I switch between watching on my iPad and Apple TV. Regrettably, there is no tracking between the two interfaces of what has been watched! Also, this app is altogether poorly organized. Surely all the money viewers like me and the big corporations, for whom we are forced to watch ads, can hire better programmers for the PBS app!!

Paid app disguised as free

Almost everything on this app requires you to be a paying member, but you only find out after endless clicks to reach the content. Oops, sorry, have to be a paid member for that content. And that content. And that content. Nope, sorry, that isn’t free either. Last time I checked PBS didn’t charge to watch their shows. They do now. You’ve been warned. Deleted.

No show descriptions. Still.

For the longest time now, whenever I go to look at the schedule, the descriptions are completely blank. I have tried deleting and reinstalling the app as well. What gives PBS?

Doesn’t work on apple. PBS discriminates doesn’t allow poor people to use passport

PBS doesn’t support apple. Those who use android don’t have problems cause software is for android and doesn’t adapt to iOS PBS has known the problems with commercials have been there from the beginning and have done nothing to fix it. As the problems still exist. Stirring to your Congress people And those that decide where tax payers money goes. And write to WGBH in Boston they developed this software.

Almost five stars - get rid of the swipe bar on OS X phones.

This is pretty much the best way to stream PBS content except the fact that the swipe bar remains visible during the entire show on iOS devices that don’t have home buttons.

Infuriating

I’m a loyal follower of pbs and a donor. Love the shows, but using this app is soooo frustrating! Every time I get out of the app in the middle of a show, I’m not allowed to simply resume, but forced to restart and fast forward to the point where I left, blindly, without being able to scrub through images, and every time having to watch the initial ad! Forget about picking up from another device. Navigation through seasons and episodes is completely counterintuitive (and difficult). I watch pbs on my iPhone, Apple TV and other streaming devices... just as bad! So, us pbs lovers seem to be stuck with a bad app, hoping that developers read these reviews and decide to do something about it!

In-App Purchasing Label

Although this free app from PBS has content that requires you to “donate” to your local PBS station in order to receive it, that is still technically a purchase on the end of the customer — we are still required to spend money to get your product. Therefore you need to label this app as having “In-App Purchases” under the main icon here in the App Store just as any/all of the other apps do...
