WPXU-TV, virtual channel 35 (UHF digital channel 34), is an Ion Television owned-and-operated television station licensed to Jacksonville, North Carolina, United States. The station is owned by Ion Media Networks. WPXU-TV's transmitter is located near North Topsail Beach, North Carolina.

WPXU-TV operates as a full-time satellite of Greenville-licensed WEPX-TV (channel 38). WPXU covers areas of southeastern North Carolina that receive a marginal to non-existent over-the-air signal from WEPX, although there is significant overlap between the two stations' contours otherwise, including in Jacksonville proper. WPXU is a straight simulcast of WEPX; on-air references to WPXU are limited to Federal Communications Commission (FCC)-mandated hourly station identifications during programming. Aside from the transmitter, WPXU does not maintain any physical presence locally in Jacksonville.

WPXU-TV and WEPX-TV were affiliates of MyNetworkTV from September 5, 2006 until September 27, 2009 when MyNetworkTV's affiliation switched over to WITN-TV, prior to this, the stations were solely affiliates of Ion (then known as i: Independent Television and originally known as Pax TV).
