    Victoria on Masterpiece - Show of Unity was supposed to be broadcast last night, but instead it seems we received a rebroadcast of last week's episode.

    Does anyone have any info about this? Right now the schedule still shows that they're showing the NEXT episode next Sunday.

    Must be a local PBS mistake, I definitely saw Show of Unity on Vermont Public Television last night.

    And as far as I can tell, PBS does not make their episodes available for streaming for free. :(

    Thanks. I'm noticing that they are rebroadcasting it a few times before the next episode. I'll try those options. My spouse won't watch television on a laptop; we don't have a Roku; and I don't see the PBS app on TiVo.

    Same with the app on Fire TV. If you want unlimited streaming access to PBS programs you have to subscribe to their "Passport" which costs $5/mo -- and I'm pretty sure requires the PBS app on a device such as Roku or Fire TV, i.e., is not available via TiVo. With this and increasing commercials PBS is getting less like public TV all the time.

    I have the pbs on the Fire stick and because I have DirecTV, it isn't charging me anything. I can catch the episodes I may have missed. Amazon has a PBS Masterpiece channel that has a monthly fee. Usually amazon lets you have a week for free and you can cancel it easily online before you get charged. You can also pick it up on that one as well.
