WMCF-TV is a TBN owned-and-operated television station for Central Alabama's River Region that is licensed to Montgomery. The station broadcasts a standard definition digital signal on UHF channel 46 (or virtual channel 45.1 via PSIP) from a transmitter located in East Montgomery.

History[edit]

Founded in 1985, the station is owned by Trinity Broadcasting Network.

Digital television[edit]

This station's digital signal, like most other full-service TBN owned-and-operated stations, carries five different TBN-run networks.

Channel Video Aspect PSIP Short Name Programming

45.2 TCC Hillsong Channel
45.3 COMBO JUCE TV/Smile
45.4 Enlace Enlace

TBN-owned full-power stations permanently ceased analog transmissions on April 16, 2009.[2]

WMCF-TV shut down its analog signal, over UHF channel 45, on that date. The station's digital signal remained on its pre-transition UHF channel 46,[3] using PSIP to display the station's virtual channel as its former UHF analog channel 45.
