=== Analog-to-digital conversion ===

From September 7, 2017, in time for the 8th anniversary of the INC's Executive Minister Eduardo Manalo entered office, INCTV was granted a "special authority" from the [[National Telecommunications Commission (Philippines)|National Telecommunications Commission]] to moved its analog feed from UHF Channel 49 to UHF Channel 48 to allow the former channel to simulcast digitally in full-time, which began two days earlier (September 5). The shift was arranged for the station until its management announce its intention to permanently shut down analog broadcasts and go digital-only.
