Our Mission

We develop and deliver valued program choices and services in partnership with America's public television community.

Since 1961, American Public Television has been a leading distributor of groundbreaking, high-quality, top-rated programming to the nation's public television stations.

With approximately 4,000 hours of available programming, APT identifies innovative programs and creative distribution techniques for producers. In more than five decades, we have established a tradition of providing public television stations with the choices that enable them to strengthen and customize their schedules. APT annually distributes approximately half of the top 100 highest- rated public television titles.
