APT Exchange, one of APT’s three programming divisions, supplies quality programming to public television stations nationwide and also serves as a distribution gateway for both stations and independent producers.

Virtually all U.S. public television licensees subscribe to the APT Exchange service and, as a result, may access its entire inventory of more than 800 titles and 3,000 television hours. This includes the roughly 130 new titles we add each year.

Our ever-growing catalog contains highly rated and award-winning cooking, travel and lifestyle series hosted by some of public television’s most-recognizable faces; high-profile primetime programs; fully packaged pledge events for fundraising purposes; and strong documentaries, music performances, children's programming, and news and public affairs series.

Additionally, many of Exchange’s signature series appear on CreateŽ and WORLD, two of public television's most popular multicast channels. For CreateŽ, these include the long-running lifestyle series America's Test Kitchen From Cook's Illustrated, The Best of the Joy of Painting (Bob Ross), Lidia's Kitchen, P. Allen Smith's Garden Home and Rick Steves' Europe.
