Have you heard about WXXI Passport?

It's a new member benefit that offers extended on-demand access to a rich library of public television programming.

If you are a WXXI member at the $60 level or above, you can enjoy WXXI Passport, which will give you access to 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 recently contributed at the $60 level or more, you should have received an email 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!
