Downton Abbey


Final Farewell to Downton Abbey

Do you long for a little escape? Relive the drama, romance and excitement of Downton Abbey for the final time before the beloved series leaves SCETV Passport. Downton Abbey, the award-winning series from Julian Fellowes, spans 12 years of gripping drama centered on a great English estate on the cusp of a vanishing way of life. The series follows the Granthams and their family of servants through sweeping change, scandals, love, ambition, heartbreak and hope. Watch all six seasons and 44 episodes before they leave SCETV Passport on June 30.

Somewhere South Season 1

Host and award-winning chef Vivian Howard digs deeper into the lesser-known roots of Southern food, Southern cooking and Southern living.

Watch all six episodes now! 

American Experience George W. Bush 

The latest in our award-winning series of presidential biographies, this film looks at the life and presidency of George W.

Independent Lens Jim Allison: Breakthrough

The story of one warmhearted, stubborn man’s visionary quest to find a cure for cancer, Jim Allison: Breakthrough is an homage to an unconventional superhero — a pioneering, harmonica-playing scientist from a small town in Texas who triumphed over a doubtful medical establishment to save innumerable lives around the world and win the Nobel Prize.​
