AETN is more than just television.

With a rich 50-year history, AETN has become a flourishing public service media network, delivering educational resources on air, online and in person to Arkansas's most at-risk populations. We convene communities to discuss hard topics - depression, heat illness, domestic violence, AIDS, senior security - to find solutions. AETN delivers important, timely, educational programming and services to even the most rural areas of the state. Additionally, AETN bolsters public safety during crises by using datacasting, which converts a portion of the AETN broadcast signal into a public safety wireless delivery network for first responders.
