WDVB-CD is a low-powered, Class A Hillsong Channel owned-and-operated television station licensed to Edison, New Jersey, United States. It mainly serves the New York City area, broadcasting on virtual and UHF digital channel 23 from a transmitter located at the Empire State Building. The station is owned by the Trinity Broadcasting Network.
This station signed on over UHF channel 36 with the alpha-numeric call-sign W36AS on March 12, 1999. The station, officially a translator, aired independent programming. In 2004, it became an affiliate of ImaginAsian and dropped the independent format. On January 4, 2005, the station vacated channel 36 to avoid causing interference to full-power WNJU Linden, which was assigned channel 36 for its DTV operations. The station moved to channel 39, and was assigned alpha-numeric call sign W39CQ. The station requested and was granted Class A status. On February 16, 2005, the call sign was changed to WDVB-CA. In early 2010, ImaginAsian was dropped. With no programming immediately available to replace it, WDVB-CA was only airing a color bars test pattern.
In March 2013, WDVB's class A status was moved from the analog station to the digital station (which became WDVB-CD), and the analog license was turned in; this analog signal had left the air for technical reasons on February 9. Shortly afterward, Edison Broadcasting filed to sell the station to LocusPoint Networks. The sale closed on August 19, 2013.
