WUTH-CD, virtual channel 47 (UHF digital channel 22), is a Class A UniMás-affiliated television station licensed to Hartford, Connecticut and serving the Hartford-New Haven United States. Owned by Entravision Communications, it is a sister station to Univision affiliate WUVN (channel 18). The two stations share studios at Constitution Plaza in downtown Hartford and transmitter facilities on Birch Mountain Road in Glastonbury, Connecticut.

History[edit]

The station was originally a translator for New York City's WXTV, as Hartford originally did not have a separate Univision affiliate. It moved from channel 61 (where it had been W61AH) to channel 47 in 1984 due to the launch of WTIC-TV, and briefly changed its call letters to WXTV-LP in 1995 (before reverting to its translator call of W47AD). Late in 2001, when Entravision bought WHCT to serve as a full-power Univision affiliate, W47AD's call letters were changed to WUTH-CA. The station became a charter affiliate of Telefutura (the predecessor of UniMás) in 2002, and Entravision took over ownership of WUTH later that year.
