Description:
Alabama Public Television is a state network of Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) member non-commercial educational Public television stations serving the US state of Alabama. The television stations are licensed by the Alabama Educational Television Commission, which was created by the Alabama state legislature in 1953. The broadcast signals of the nine stations cover almost all of the state, as well as parts of Florida, Georgia, Mississippi and Tennessee. The network produces its own TV news and public affairs programming and broadcasts content produced by the state's universities for online education and course credit as well.

The network's offices and network operations center are located in Birmingham.

The AETC has operated a public radio station, WLRH 89.3 FM, in Huntsville, since 1977.
