dbo:abstract
  • WGBH-TV, virtual channel 2 (VHF digital channel 5), is a Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) member television station licensed to Boston, Massachusetts, United States. It is the flagship property of the WGBH Educational Foundation, which also owns fellow PBS members WGBX-TV (channel 44) in Boston and WGBY-TV (channel 57) in Springfield, Massachusetts, Class A Biz TV affiliate WFXZ-CD (channel 24) and public radio stations WGBH (89.7 FM) and WCRB (99.5 FM) in the Boston area, and WCAI radio (and satellites WZAI and WNAN) on Cape Cod. WGBH-TV also effectively serves as one of two flagship stations of PBS, along with WNET in New York City. WGBH-TV, WGBX-TV, and the WGBH and WCRB radio stations share studios on Guest Street in northwest Boston's Brighton neighborhood; WGBH-TV's transmitter is located on Cabot Street (East of I-95/MA 128) in Needham, Massachusetts, on the former candelabra tower, which serves as an interim main and backup facility for sister station WGBX-TV as well as WBZ-TV, WCVB-TV, WBTS-CD (which itself shares spectrum with WGBX) and WSBK-TV. Under an agreement with Shaw Broadcast Services, WGBH-TV operates a satellite uplink facility at the station's Needham transmitter site. The facility relays the signals of WGBH-TV and four other Boston-area television stations (CBS owned-and-operated station WBZ-TV, ABC affiliate WCVB, NBC owned-and-operated station WBTS-CD, and Fox affiliate WFXT) to cable and satellite television providers across Atlantic Canada, and also relays the signal of MyNetworkTV affiliate WSBK to pay television providers throughout Canada. As a Canadian company, Shaw is not legally entitled to operate an uplink facility in the United States; as such, the company pays the WGBH Educational Foundation to perform this service on Shaw's behalf.
