Lakeland Public Television to launch FNX - First Nations Experience, a new channel focused on Native American & Indigenous cultures.

Lakeland Public Television is pleased to announce the local broadcast of a new channel dedicated to telling the stories of Native Americans across the United States – FNX “First Nations Experience”. The FNX television channel presents Native American stories and content to create a diverse and entertaining channel across all media platforms 24/7. The unique non-profit channel is the result of a shared vision and values between the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians and PBS/KVCR both located in San Bernardino, California.

Through Native-produced and/or themed documentaries, dramatic series and arts programming, the FNX Channel illustrates the lives and cultures of Native American and indigenous people around the world. FNX is truly the voice of Native American and indigenous communities.

Beginning July 1st, Lakeland Public Television will begin broadcast of FNX on its over-the-air channels 9.2 in the Bemidji area, and 22.2 in the Brainerd Lakes area. Additionally, Paul Bunyan Communications will be adding Lakeland’s FNX channel to its cable lineup on channel 173. This channel will be available at no charge to all cable systems within Lakeland’s coverage area. Viewers are encouraged to contact their local television provider about carriage of this channel.
