WBXI-CA is a low-power television station in Indianapolis, Indiana, broadcasting locally on channel 47 as an Tr3́s affiliate. It is owned by CBS Corporation, currently its only television property in Indianapolis, following its sale of WNDY-TV to LIN TV in 2005.

The station broadcasts on UHF channel 47.

Like most over-the-air affiliates of MTV2 (as it was from 2001-07), WBXI was an affiliate of The Box from the station's sign-on in 1990 (as W47AZ) until that network's acquisition by Viacom (CBS Corporation's predecessor) in 2001.

For a few months in 2004, Channel 47 acted as a satellite station of then sister-station WNDY carrying UPN programming and simulcasting all of WNDY's programming, including the 10 p.m. news produced by WTHR.

WBXI has a construction permit to flash cut its signal from analog to digital on channel 47.[1]
