During the 1980s and early 1990s, WTCV was known as WSJU (SJU standing for San Juan International Airport's ID) and was an NBC affiliate, one of two commercial English-language networked stations broadcasting in Puerto Rico (the others being WPRV-TV & WUJA) during the 80s; around 1990, the station also carried Home Shopping Network programming during most of the late-morning and afternoon hours.[self-published source?] There are now four commercial English-language network-affiliated stations in Puerto Rico, all of which broadcast from San Juan & Mayagüez.
On September 11, 2014, WTCV became a Mega TV owned & operated station, following the sale of Spanish Broadcasting System through its License Management Agreement for $1.9 millon, leaving its status as an Independent station, while its former owner, International Broadcasting Corporation continues to be its Licensee, until SBS will transfer WIOA 99.9 FM, WIOC 105.1 FM & WZET 92.1 FM to IBC's TV operations. Starting in March 2015, WTCV will begin its Local programming, produced by SBS Puerto Rico, which owns Z-93, La Nueva 94, Estereotempo and La Mega. The sale of WTCV with SBS was completed on September 1, 2015.
