Analog-to-digital conversion[edit]

WLLA shut down its analog signal, over UHF channel 64, on November 1, 2008.[3] The station's digital signal remained on its pre-transition UHF channel 45, using PSIP to display the WLLA's virtual channel as 64 on digital television receivers, which was among the high band UHF channels (52–69) that were removed from broadcasting use as a result of the transition.
