WBQM-LD is a low-power Spanish independent television station licensed to New York, New York. It is branded as Canal 3, and broadcasts on UHF channel 50. As of January 2012, the station is on the air, using virtual channel 3.1. The station formerly broadcast on VHF channel 3 and was previously owned by Renard Communications Corp.
On August 17, 2007, Renard Communications announced that would sell WBQM-LP, along with, at that time, sister station WMBQ-CA to Equity Media Holdings for $8 million. However, the transaction had a closing deadline set for June 1, 2008, and either party could cancel the sale if it were not completed by then. The sale was not consummated. As of December 8, 2008 Equity Media Holdings is in chapter 11 bankruptcy.
In February 2012, Renard reached another deal to sell WBQM-LD, this time to Buenavision TV Network NY, LLC (WMBQ was sold separately several months earlier).
As of February 2013 WBQM-LD joined an affiliation with CNN Latino and has been transmitting its signal on digital channel 3.1, and is rebroadcasting on digital channel 3.4.
