This app also features a detailed program guide for both the stations. On June 30, 2009, United Communications applied to the FCC for a digital version of WNYF-LP on UHF channel 18. Taking on the WNYF-LD call sign, it is officially licensed as a translator of WWNY-TV.

TV 7 could not be assigned to Watertown as a future 7 Buffalo, some 165 miles distant, held the allotment. (That station signed on in 1958.)

WWNY-CD was originally a repeater for ABC affiliate WWTI with the call sign W28BC. During that time, WWTI and WWNY had secondary affiliations with Fox.
