Comcast 9/Verizon 37
This serves as the station’s primary channel for Wilmington content. It is home to all live programming, major community & school events, sports and election programming. It also includes time blocks dedicated to Wilmington volunteer producers, even if their content is not specifically Wilmington-centric.
Comcast 22/Verizon 38
This channel is almost exclusively for municipal meetings. Note that live meetings may simulcast on our main channel and meetings channel. We know how important government meetings are to people and want to make sure you don’t miss them.
Comcast 6/Verizon 39
This channel features programming from community producers, as well as public access programs that are produced outside Wilmington. It’s also where community-centric and school-related programming goes for a “longer shelf life” outside of our main channel schedule.
WCTV produces all of its programming in high-definition. However, cable companies are reluctant to give WCTV a high-definition channel, which is why our channel numbers are so low and why our signal quality isn’t what you’d expect from a TV station.
