WHDT-LD is a digital low-power television station in Boston, Massachusetts which broadcasts on UHF channel 38 (major OTA channel 6). WHDT-LD broadcasts the high definition program schedule of its full service sister-station WHDT in West Palm Beach, Florida. It is a broadcast partner of the Deutsche Welle world television service. The station is one of six operated by WHDT World Television Service (DE), a business unit of Marksteiner AG.

On January 6, 2004, the station (then known as WHDN-LP) was granted a license to convert to digital operations, making it one of the first digital low-power stations in the United States -- others include WLPH-CD in Miami, Florida (owned by LocusPoint Networks) and WTHC-LD in Atlanta, Georgia.
