Iowa PBS is an important part of our lives. Together, we traveled to distant lands, explored different cultures, and came face-to-face with wildlife. We laughed together, cried together, and spent hours discussing the fascinating things that we had learned.

Throughout the decades, the people of Iowa have kept public television alive with their generosity and support. Each generation fueling this important work; helping to ensure that the next generation has access to fair and honest journalism, programs that capture the beauty and essence of Iowa, and iconic characters like Elmo, Bob Ross, Red Green, and so many others!

As technology evolves, so is Iowa PBS. Iowa PBS Passport now offers 24/7 streaming services of all your favorite shows on the PBS App. MemberCard gives you two-for-one or discounted access to hundreds of restaurants and cultural attractions across the state.

We offer Iowa PBS Passport, MemberCard, local workshops, exciting travel opportunities, and daily broadcasts of programs you enjoy and count on. Together, we built the tools that we needed to better serve Iowa communities, and we’re just getting started! There are so many things that still need to be done, but we need YOUR help in order to do them.
