Prairie Public Television is a network of PBS stations that broadcast to all of North Dakota, with extended coverage into portions of Northwest Minnesota, Eastern Montana, and parts of northern South Dakota.

There is also limited availability in southern Saskatchewan (see also CPN in Canada). A cable service was also available in parts of the Canadian provinces of Manitoba, and northwestern Ontario.

The six North Dakota stations that broadcast Doctor Who during the 1980s were:

  • KFME -- Fargo (channel 13)
  • KGFE -- Grand Forks (channel 2)
  • KBME -- Bismarck (channel 3)
  • KSRE -- Minot (channel 6)
  • KDSE -- Dickinson (channel 9)
  • KWSE -- Williston (channel 4)

Other stations were added to the network in the 1990s and early 2000s, including KJRE in Ellendale (channel 19).
