As W63AS and W38AM 
WXNY originally began on channel 63 as W63AS, and for a while it was an out of market translator of WVIA-TV for local schools. Like its sister station WNYX-LD, it later became a translator to the then WLIG. Due to interference to and from WMBC-TV, which is also on channel 63, it moved to channel 38 as W38AM. It became an affiliate of The Box in 1991.
As WXNY-LP 
In 1994, call letters were changed to WXNY-LP and the station moved to channel 39. Around this time, it became an affiliate of a Spanish network called LTV; it continued to carry The Box on a part-time basis.
In 2002, WXNY-LP moved to channel 32 and became an affiliate of the Home Shopping Network, at the same time, its sister station, WNYN-LP, moved from channel 51 to channel 39 and became an affiliate of Azteca América. When W60AI became the HSN affiliate for the area, WXNY-LP became an affiliate of America's Store.
After the closing of America's Store, WXNY-LP began to air programming similar to that seen on Public-access television cable TV channels, including several hours per afternoon and overnight of a locally produced music video call-in request show hosted by young men and women in their late teens and early twenties. Callers would pay approximately $3.00 per call and could request up to two music videos per call. They could also briefly discuss issues going on in their personal lives. Other programming fare included a TV psychic. Programming during this time was often simulcasted on co-owned LPTV station WNYX-LP In summer of 2007, the station suspended operations as the studio moved to its new location in Times Square. By late November it went back on the air as a relay translator of WNYX-LP. In April 2009, WXNY-LP once more suspended operations due to a lack of technical personnel to operate the station.
As WXNY-LD 
In late 2010, WXNY return back on the air for the third time with a christian format and informercials under the LMA agreement with Jacobs Broadcasting. However early that year Jacobs cease operation due to a fraud investigation and WXNY began to switch into a test pattern temporarily. In spring 2011 Island Broadcasting agreed to sell WXNY to NY Spectrum Holdings Company. The station was sold to NY Spectrum Holding Company and operated by NY Broadband LLC in 2010. In 2011 WXNY switched to a new format in Chinese news programing as CCTV News English (32.1), CCTV News Spanish (32.2) and CCTV News Mandarin (32.3).
