WUTH-CD is the UniMás affiliate serving the Hartford/New Haven, Connecticut television market. It is owned by Entravision, who also owns Univision affiliate WUVN. WUTH broadcasts on UHF channel 47 digital and channel 18.3 digital as of a digital subchannel of WUVN.

History[edit]

The station was originally a translator for New York City's WXTV, as Hartford originally did not have a separate Univision affiliate. It moved from channel 61 (where it had been W61AH) to the current 47 in 1984, and briefly changed its call letters to WXTV-LP in 1995 (before reverting to its translator call of W47AD). Late in 2001, when Entravision bought WHCT to serve as a full-power Univision affiliate, W47AD's call letters were changed to WUTH-CA. The station became a charter affiliate of Telefutura (the predecessor of UniMás) in 2002, and Entravision took over ownership of WUTH later that year.
