First Nations Experience (FNX) is a non-profit television network in San Bernardino, California, owned by the San Bernardino Community College District. The network, created by Executive Director Charles Fox, is broadcast from the KVCR-TV studios located on the San Bernardino Valley College. FNX is America's first and only broadcast network aimed at Native Americans and global Indigenous audiences and consumers of Native American culture.
First Nation Experience was launched under the leadership of Executive Director Charles Fox on September 25, 2011, through a $6 million gift from its founding partner, the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians. On November 1, 2014, FNX became available via satellite to hundreds of non-profit public television service providers across the United States including public broadcasting TV stations (especially PBS member stations), community, tribal, religious, and others. On this date, FNX became available via satellite receiver set to 125° West from the PBS Satellite Service. In 2015, the San Manuel Band awarded FNX a second $6 million gift to help expand the station. The network currently reaches 47 million viewers in the United States.
