First National Experience (FNX) selects ProLink to deliver Program Schedule and Metadata to Public Media Stations
Myers is pleased to announce The FNX Channel is now available to ProLink subscribers. FNX presents Native-produced and/or themed documentaries, dramatic series and arts programming, illustrating the lives and cultures of Native American and indigenous people around the world.
For over 17 years public television stations have relied on ProLink to aggregate and deliver nationally and regionally distributed program offer, essential program metadata and schedule information. ProLink daily updates are sent via the internet and downloaded directly to ProTrack databases, giving subscribing stations the ability to select and download information with expedience and reliability from national and regional distributors including PBS, APT, NETA, KNME, WLIW and BBC Worldwide Americas.
Adding the FNX Channel to the Myers ProLink service will bring the number of nationally distributed packaged channels to six; joining Create, The World, V-me, MHz Worldview, NHK in this lineup. ProLink also facilitates the schedule distribution and program metadata for regional services, providing an efficient, streamlined way to share programming schedules among stations – these services include The Minnesota Channel, The Florida Channel and The Indiana Channel.
As broadcast technology and the needs of stations and distributors evolve, Myers continues to expand our ProLink service in both scope and significance, benefiting stations and their audiences alike. ProLink’s trusted reputation for flexibility and timeliness of dissemination has made it the preeminent web-based metadata delivery mechanism for the entire public television community.
