W38DH is the local Home Shopping Network affiliate for Toledo, Ohio. The station was founded on December 5, 1990. It broadcasts on channel 38. The station was originally broadcast as W64BM on Channel 64. It gained its current channel and call-sign on August 11, 2005.

The station has seen a number of network affiliations in its 17-year history. First, it was an affiliate of Home Shopping Spree and The Box. By November 2000, it had switched to become an affiliate of MTV2. By 2006, it had reverted to America's Store. After America's Store on April 3, 2007, W38DH began broadcasting programming from HSN.

W38DH's signal covers most of the Toledo area quite adequately, which is not always seen regarding a low-power station.

The station has been granted a construction permit to convert to digital on channel 23. Coverage should expand to Monroe and Dundee, Michigan
