WXFT-DT is a full power television station in Aurora, Illinois broadcasting on local digital UHF 60 to Chicago. A Spanish language station, it is the TeleFutura Chicago affiliate, owned and operated by Univision Television Group, offering Spanish language entertainment programming such as movies, serials, comedies, children's shows, and sports.. TeleFutura ... See more Chicago’s programming includes the TeleFutura Network’s blockbuster lineup, as well as a local one hour news magazine TV-Radio simulcast every weekday morning. The station began as a split-channel contract, in which WPWR-TV broadcast from 2:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. daily and WBBS-TV used the signal from 7 p.m. to 2:30 a.m. In April 1982, Fred Eychaner of Metrowest Corporation signed on WPWR-TV on channel 60, with a large percentage of its broadcast schedule dedicated to a new subscription television service called Sportsvision, part of ONTV, which Eychaner had developed in a deal with Chicago White Sox owners Jerry Reinsdorf and Eddie Einhorn. Sportsvision achieved little success on WPWR, and moved to cable in January 1984. With Sportsvision gone, WPWR ran public domain movies and old sitcoms from the early to mid 1950s as well as old cartoons. In 1984, more familiar classic sitcoms and newer barter cartoons were mixed in.During the hours in which Hatco-60 ran channel 60, it operated as WBBS-TV, broadcasting a Spanish language entertainment format. In 1985 WSNS became affiliated with the Spanish International Network caused WBBS to end weekday programming at the end of 1985. In 1985, Eychaner acquired the educational broadcast license for WCAE channel 50. In early 1986, Eychaner bought WBBS's share of channel 60 for $11 million. He sold channel 60 to the Home Shopping Network for $25 million. At the same time, WPWR moved to channel 50. Ironically, WXFT-DT's signal is now on channel 50 after the DTV transition was completed in 2009. In 1997, the station was sold to Univision in a group deal. As a result, channel 60 became WXFT, and switched to Univision's new network, Telefutura.
