NMPBS Distribution

NMPBS is a leading Alpha station working with the PBS Service Interconnection Team, sIX, and continues to lead the nation in new technology for content delivery in public television. Working with PBS and sIX vendors, NMPBS helped develop upload and delivery specifications for stations engaging with the sIX platform. Currently, we’re testing and validating the next stage of the sIX project which provides live linear streaming of content.


NMPBS Distribution has established lasting partnerships with our clients, including Deutsche Welle. As the sIX distributor for four international newsmagazine shows to PBS stations nationwide, NMPBS is now offering this diverse point of view to public television by bringing international news and magazine style programs to the U.S. audience. Other clients include BBC Studios, Democracy Now and Love and Respect with Killer Mike, along with a host of independent producers, including Bands of Enchantment.

Master conrol operator

Since 1958, NMPBS has been a pioneering public television station, and we continue our legacy today as a leader in broadcast technology and program content. We continually focus on new innovations in content delivery, including sIX updates and testing, datacasting partnerships for public safety using the EduCast platform and content creation for PBS Learning Media. Through these efforts and others like them, NMPBS finds our audience wherever they are to deliver the highest quality content possible.
