WMVT (Channel 36) is a television station located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Its signal covers most of southeastern Wisconsin, including the cities of Racine, Kenosha, Sheboygan, and Waukesha.

WMVT is a noncommercial public broadcasting station, which is a member of PBS. WMVT's owner, Milwaukee Area Technical College, also owns sister Milwaukee PBS affiliate WMVS. Both stations together refer to themselves collectively as "Milwaukee Public Television".

WMVT airs more documentary, instructional, DIY, and news programming than WMVS' general PBS schedule, and is the Milwaukee affiliate for Wisconsin Educational Communications Board's instructional telecourse programs for students and teachers, along with most Wisconsin Badgers sports coverage from WPT. Also, PBS primetime programming moves to Channel 36 while Channel 10 holds their annual auction and pledge drives. The station also airs "The NewsHour with Jim Lehrer" on a half-hour delay in lieu of WMVS.

WMVT also has a "Student Operations Day" yearly on the first Saturday in May, where the students in MATC's broadcasting department use the MPTV facilities to produce their own shows to air on Channel 36, which vary from serious educational and history programs to comedy shows.

Digital television

:"For more on MPTV's digital television services, see Milwaukee Public Television#Digital programming.

WMVT's digital signal is on Channel 35 and is multiplexted into eight different digital subchannels, all airing at 480i, with a simulcast of WMVT's analog signal on 35-1. Formerly, WMVT did not have a digital equivalent, and the station's channel slot was used to broadcast a full-quality HDTV signal of WMVS, due to the limitations of the VHF Channel 8 signal within the area. WMVS-DT has to operate on limited power until the February 17, 2009 digital switchover in order to protect the analog Channel 8 signal of NBC affiliate WOOD-TV across Lake Michigan in Grand Rapids, Michigan, which regularly propogates over the lake and into Wisconsin. The layout of Milwaukee Public Television's digital service is detailed further within that article.

History

WMVT began broadcasting on January 28, 1963.
