WITF-TV is a PBS member station available on analog channel 33 and digital channel 36, based in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. WITF broadcasts throughout the Susquehanna Valley viewing area, and is a sister station to the area's NPR member station, WITF-FM. Its transmitter is located in Susquehanna Township, with studios at the WITF Public Media Center in Swatara Township (which shares a post office with Harrisburg). The station's programming can also be seen on low-powered translators W38AN, channel 38 in Chambersburg and W24CS, channel 24 in Reading.

Channel 33 began as WEEU-TV, a commercial television station licensed to Reading in the 1950s. The station failed after the Philadelphia stations boosted their signals to cover Reading, and the channel was reallocated to the Harrisburg area for non-commercial educational use. The South Central Educational Broadcasting Council was formed in 1960, and it quickly snapped up the channel 33 license. WITF-TV signed on for the first time on November 22 1961 from "temporary" studios in Hershey, near the Hershey Theatre. In 1982, it moved to studios in northeast Harrisburg. In 2007, it moved to its first-ever purpose-built home in Swatara Township.

In 1998, WITF-TV made history in Pennsylvania by launching the Commonwealth's first digital television channel. As broadcasters across the country switch from 50-year old analog technology to the federally mandated digital format, WITF became one of the first in the nation to meet the technological, financial and educational challenges.
