Watch WTXF TV Philadelphia Live TV from USA
News TV Channel / WTXF-TV, virtual channel 29 (UHF digital channel 42), is a Fox owned-and-operated television station licensed to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States. The station is owned by the Fox Television Stations subsidiary of 21st Century Fox. WTXF’s studios are located on Market Street in Center City, and its transmitter is located in the Roxborough section of the city. The station signed on the air on May 16, 1965 as independent station WIBF-TV, originally owned by brothers William, Irwin, and Benjamin Fox. The Fox brothers had already been operating WIBF-FM (103.9 FM, now WPPZ) for several years. Channel 29’s original studio was located in the Fox family’s Benson East apartment building on Old York Road in the suburb of Jenkintown, located north of Philadelphia. WIBF-TV was the first commercial UHF station in Philadelphia, and the first of three UHF independents in the Philadelphia market to sign-on during 1965, with WPHL-TV (channel 17) and WKBS-TV (channel 48) both making their debuts in September.
