BronxNet to join Manhattan Neighborhood Network to distribute innovative and uniquely New York City based cable channel and digital platform
Two leaders in New York City community television, BronxNet and Manhattan Neighborhood Network (MNN), are joining forces to start cablecasting the innovative cable and digital platform NYXT.NYC in The Bronx starting on February 1. The channel will now be available in HD throughout The Bronx on both FiOS (channel 2138) and Optimum (channel 952).
NYXT.NYC features high-quality, short-form video content from over 140 community-based organizations from around NYC. They include New York Botanical Garden, Fordham University, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Amnesty International, New York University and many, many others. NYXT also has created and distributed over 50 original media shorts designed to inform residents about the people and organizations that make New York City great.
Following NYXT’s expansion into Brooklyn on Brooklyn Information and Culture’s (BRIC) channels in April 2019, this new partnership will allow this unique and innovative media platform to be seen in over one million homes throughout The Bronx, Brooklyn and Manhattan.
“BronxNet’s partnership with NYXT gives Bronx voices a platform to be heard throughout the city while providing Bronx residents the opportunity to hear city-wide voices on our channels,” said BronxNet Executive Director Michael Max Knobbe.
“We’re pleased that NYXT will now be part of BronxNet’s channel lineup,” said Manhattan Neighborhood Network’s President and CEO Dan Coughlin. “Our partnership with BronxNet on NYXT and so many other projects and initiatives is yet another indication of our organizations’ commitment to serve New Yorkers with first rate programming and media services.”
Created and launched by MNN in 2016, NYXT.NYC is a 24-hour short form video cable channel and digital platform that provides pathways for New Yorkers to engage with organizations that are making a positive impact within the community. In addition to being seen in The Bronx, NYXT can be seen in Manhattan on Spectrum (channel 1992) and FiOS (channel 38) and in Brooklyn on RCN (channel 85), FIOS (channel 45), and Spectrum (channel 1997), in addition to streaming worldwide and making all content available on-demand from the channel website at www.nyxt.nyc.
Established in 1992, Manhattan Neighborhood Network is a media learning, production, and distribution hub that promotes creative expression, independent voices and community engagement. MNN operates two state-of-the-art media production and education facilities in Manhattan and runs Manhattan's public access TV channels, reaching some 400,000 cable subscribers in the borough.
