WTVE-TV 51 is a full-power commercial independent television station licensed to Reading, Pennsylvania and assigned to the Philadelphia (DMA) designated market area. Over the years, the station has evolved from serving a handful of viewers on the local cable channel to roughly 2.5 million subscribers on cable, satellite and FiOS. The station is picked up on cable systems in its sprawling market area from Allentown to Atlantic City and from Wilmington, Delaware to points in Pennsylvania’s coal region.
WTVE’s unique location makes it a regional powerhouse allowing it to serve the entire Philadelphia DMA and parts of two other major TV markets over-the-air. Over-the-air capabilities are considered vital in the digital age when not every subchannel will be available over cable – plus a host of mobile applications.
