WVLR shut down its analog signal, over UHF channel 48, on June 12, 2009, the official date in which full-power television stations in the United States transitioned from analog to digital broadcasts under federal mandate. The station "flash-cut" its digital signal into operation on UHF channel 48. Because it was granted an original construction permit after the FCC finalized the DTV allotment plan on April 21, 1997, WVLR did not receive a companion channel for a digital television station.
