Catch up on Downton Abbey by taking the Sustainer Challenge!

Posted on Aug 6, 2019

What's better than staying in with a nice cuppa tea and watching Downton Abbey? Or maybe make that an iced tea in this Texas heat.

And now is the perfect time to get out of that blistering sun and get your binge on because the Downton Abbey movie is FINALLY coming out!

THIS IS NOT A DRILL. The official release date for the movie is September 20, 2019 — that means we have just a month and a half to catch up on all six seasons of the series before heading into the cinema. Go into the theater freshly awash with all the lavishness, emotion and scandal from the series so you can fully enjoy the feature-length film.

During KLRU's Sustainer Challenge, you can elevate your status (won't Lady Mary be jealous!) by becoming a sustainer! Not only will the world of the Crawley family be wide open to you as a sustainer, but you'll be a true hero to public media as you provide a reliable monthly source of funding for this station. And when you join, consider doing so with direct debit EFT so that KLRU can put more of your dollars to work by avoiding credit card processing fees.

Thank you!

P.S. Because we all deserve a little something, everyone who takes the Sustainer Challenge will get their very own KLRU fan kit full of swag! When you join or upgrade at $10/month, you can also nab our soft baseball tee! Or for $15/month or more, we'll send you this perfect-for-summer YETI tumbler.
