Relive the Drama, Romance and Excitement of Downton Abbey on SCETV Passport

By Natalyn Klump

Downton Abbey Passport


Do you long for a little escape? 

Do you miss the beloved characters, magnificent costumes and all the splendor of the great estate?

Wait no more! You can enjoy all six seasons of Downton Abbey on SCETV Passport, a benefit for members at the $6.25 a month or $75 annual level. You can "binge watch" season by season or pick your favorite episodes. With SCETV Passport, you can choose from hundreds of hours of SCETV and PBS programming, available 24/7! 

Then, before you know it, in mid-September, you'll be able to enjoy the "new era" of Downton Abbey when it comes to your local theater. The movie is set in 1927, a couple of years after the end of the TV series, and centers around the royal visit of King George V and Queen Mary. 

Elizabeth McGovern, who plays Cora Crawley, talked about being a part of the new film, "Of course it was great," she said. "They're my family; they have been for so long." Writer Julian Fellowes, who admitted he was "daunted" by the task to transform Downton Abbey from a television series to a feature film, added, "It was nice to have everyone back, sitting around the dining table again."

As the trailer proclaims, "We've been expecting you."
