WPVN-CD is a Class A Digital television station that is licensed to Aurora, Illinois and serves the Chicago area, and is owned by ethnic broadcaster HC2 Holdings & is the Chicago affiliate for Movee 4 U. This station became a Retro Television Network affiliate for the Chicago television market on November 13, 2010 (ending June 30, 2013), but the main purpose of the station is to relocate much of the ethnic programming removed by Weigel Broadcasting in December 2010 when they decided to end carrying it over WCIU-DT6.

On March 28, 2011, WPVN-CA applied to move its transmitting facilities to the Trump International Hotel & Tower from its current analog & digital locations. The application was approved on August 31, 2011, along with getting Class A digital status on October 7, 2011.

In July 2016, a 24-hour broadcast of JBTV replaced KBS World on channel 24.7. The channel is still listed as KBS by PSIP short name.

On May 25, 2018, HC2 Holdings announced it would purchase WPVN-CD for $7 million plus costs.). If the purchase is approved and the station does go on the air, it is likely to become an owned-and-operated station for HC2's network Azteca América, which currently broadcasts on WCHU-LD (channel 61). With Polvision also selling off Milwaukee sister station WPVS-LP (which has yet to launch in eight years since Polvision's purchase of the license), the company will complete a withdrawal from over-the-air television broadcasting ownership, though retains control of WPVN's fourth subchannel.
