WBTS-LD is the NBC station serving Boston, Massachusetts. WBTS-LD broadcasts physically on channel 46.3 and is displayed on virtual channel 8. It is also repeated on WNEU-DT2/channel 60.2 (digital 34.4) in Merrimack, New Hampshire and has repeated on WMFP-DT5/channel 62.5 (digital 18.5) in Lawrence, Mass. temporarily since December 21, 2016.

WBTS-LD began in 1995 as W32AY and then changed calls to WTMU-LP in 2002. It aired on analog channel 32 to 2004 and analog 67 to 2010. It used virtual 60 when it moved its digital physical channel to 46. In 2015, NBC announced it would not renew its affiliation with WHDH/channel 7. After several legal challenges by Sunbeam Television (owner of WHDH), NBC announced it would move to WBTS, which was given FCC approval to move its virtual channel to 8. The move was made on January 1, 2017. Comcast, Dish and DirecTV have the station on channel 10 on their channel line-ups (810 for HD on Comcast) while other cable providers have it on varying channel spots.
