APTN expands regional shows

And the aboriginal-aimed channel is deepening its reach with dedicated broadcast feeds in the east and west.

APTN is broadening its regional programming and kicking off its spring schedule today – debuting six hours of programming that target ‘unique audiences across Canada’ through dedicated broadcast feeds in the east and west. The feeds were previously differentiated only by a three-hour delay.

‘Through this initiative, APTN is ensuring that viewers across the country are able to see programs that are more relevant to their respective regions,’ explains CEO Jean LaRose.

The spring schedule on the aboriginal-aimed channel includes Warriors: TKO, which follows four fighters from rival boxing clubs as they train together; the fifth and final season of renegadepress.com; and a new season of Rez Rides, charting the adventures of Mohawk entrepreneur and ‘king of car customizing’ Brian White. The channel has also set aside a day of special programming on March 21, marking International Day for the Elimination of Racism.
