See The Chaperone Today!

Posted on Aug 12, 2019

You have until August 15 to become a sustainer at any level, and when you do, you automatically qualify for the member benefit of KLRU Passport.

The Chaperone, based on Laura Moriarty’s best-selling American novel, reunites Downton Abbey's Academy Award-winning writer Julian Fellowes, director Michael Engler and star Elizabeth McGovern.


KLRU Passport users get exclusive access to the film from Masterpiece!

KLRU's Sustainer Challenge has a goal to welcome 200 new sustainers and we have only three more days to get there! Take the challenge now and unlock the thousands of hours of programming on KLRU Passport, including fan favorites like Downton Abbey, The Great British Baking Show, Sherlock, Poldark, Austin City Limits and so much more.

Your gift to public television sustains all the entertaining, inspiring and educational content on KLRU. But it's also a gift to the community, allowing all our neighbors access to KLRU's broadcasts, as well supporting our on-the-ground outreach, civic summits and public screenings. Everything KLRU does for the Austin area starts with viewers like you. Visit, set up your sustaining donation and take pride knowing you are giving back to Central Texas.

P.S. Anyone who takes the Sustainer Challenge will get their very own KLRU fan kit full of swag! When you join at $10/month, we'll send you our soft baseball tee to say thank you! Or join at $15/month or more to receive our insulated, stainless steel YETI tumbler.
