The New York metro area will get a new TV station this Monday, January 28, with the debut of All Arts over-the-air. The channel will also be available free nationwide via apps.

An expansion of New York Public Media’s existing on-demand All Arts service, the new 24/7 channel’s content will span music, film, theater, dance, literature, poetry and other creative areas.

Monday’s premiere primetime lineup (ET) will consist of documentaries about Brazilian singer/composer Martinho da Vila and American playwright August Wilson, with Tuesday showcasing author Toni Morrison, painter Georgia O’Keefe, rock and roll pioneers The Everly Brothers, and a look at TV miniseries.

All Arts will include original shows from parent channels WNET and WLIW (such as Art Beat), PBS fare (like American Masters and Pioneers of Television), and archival content from WNET’s half-century-plus history (like the Toni Morrison profile, from 1978).

Long Islanders will be able to view All Arts free over the air on channel 21.4. Anyone anywhere, though will be able to access All Arts on its website, or via iOS, Android, Roku, Apple TV and Fire TV.

All Arts will launch Monday at 12:01 am ET.
