About Mountain Lake PBS

The station serves as a member of PBS. About 60% of our funding comes from voluntary contributions made by individual members, businesses and organizations. The remaining comes from New York State and CPB.

Mountain Lake PBS broadcasts 24 hours a day and features high quality and non-commercial programming such as NOVA, Masterpiece Theatre, BBC World News, Nature, Frontline and various children's programs including Sesame Street, Arthur and Curious George.

We are a producing station that has produced much of our own local programming, such as Adirondack Outdoors, Art Express, Mountain Lake Journal, Roadside Adventures, and our newest series Rustic Living. Mountain Lake PBS also broadcasts programs acquired from a variety of different sources around the world.

We are received in over 3.2 million homes via antenna reception or via cable and satellite providers throughout northeast New York, Vermont, Quebec and eastern Ontario.
