This station's digital signal, like most other full-service TBN owned-and-operated stations, carries five different TBN-run networks.
|Channel||Video||Aspect||PSIP Short Name||Programming|

|21.2||TCC||The Church Channel|
|21.5||SOAC||Smile of a Child TV|
TBN-owned full-power stations permanently ceased analog transmissions on April 16, 2009.
Because it was granted an original construction permit after the FCC finalized the DTV allotment plan on April 21, 1997. The station did not receive a companion channel for a digital television station. Instead, on or before February 17, 2009, which is the end of the digital TV conversion period for full-service stations, WHRE was required to turn off its analog signal and turn on its digital signal (called a "flash-cut").
