Welcome to unctv.org!


UNC-TVUNC-TV is not just a single television station, but a statewide public television network that covers all of North Carolina, as well as areas in Virginia, South Carolina, Tennessee and Georgia.

UNC-TV currently broadcasts four full-time digital program channels: Rootle UNC-TV's Kid's Channel (a children's service for preschoolers and young school-age children); The Explorer Channel (a service featuring the best in travel, culture, science, nature, history and outdoor adventure programming); UNC-TV PBS & More (our public television service in high definition); and North Carolina Channel Stories with a Local Accent (focusing on civic affairs, issues, entertainment, and educational programs relevant to North Carolina).

The program schedule and supplemental information for all of these services can be found on this website. UNC-TV is one of the most prolific producers of original programming in all of public television, broadcasting 332 hours of programs about North Carolina people, places, activities, and issues last year.
