I don't. If they had all the quality programs during the year, that they have during the beg-a-thon, I would be all in.;)

I do.  There are acts that you never see elsewhere, like Celtic Women.

Masterpiece is the best series on TV. I currently am chipping in $5 a month.

I do - if you make a donation of $40 (or more)/year you get the whole shebang on Roku on demand - I love that!

I've donated at least $60/year since the 60s. The only time I dont watch is during fundraising time when they show stuff that appealed to me in the 50s and not much then. The best things I've ever seen on tv have all been on PBS from Nature and Nova to The Civil War, to (best of all)Civilisation, etc.

I tape the shows during the fund raising drives and then fast forward through the sales pitch.

I participated on the phone bank during a couple of fund-raising drives at PBS Dallas.  The station manager came over to talk to me and told me I looked like Ed Asner, first time I had ever heard that.  He remained to tell me this would be a slow night.  When they had the program on that night, there would be very few callers.  On the nights that they had the snake films, all of Dallas called.  He was right.  There were about thirty of us on the phone banks, and I doubt we got more than three or four calls each.  We couldn't even see the show from where we were.

The biggest problem with being PBS subscriber is that I binge watch all the new Masterpiece series. I finished season 2 of Victoria the first day that it came out. Now I have wait a few months until the next series comes out

For those of you that used to watch Siskel & Ebert, I give Victoria (y)(y)

Is there a new season of Grantchester?

I have to admit that last season that I hoped he would choose love over the stupid church of that era.

I am not sure if I am interested in that show if there is no romance
