Analog-to-digital conversion[edit]

WBXA-CD discontinued regular programming on its analog signal, over VHF channel 2, on June 3, 2015, a little under three months prior to the official date in which Class A low-power analog television stations in the United States transitioned from analog to digital broadcasts under federal mandate. The station's digital signal remained on its pre-transition UHF channel 24.
