By the 1970s, channel 5 was one of the strongest independent stations in the country.
Despite WOR-TV's and WPIX's eventual statuses as national superstations, WNEW-TV was the highest-rated independent in New York.
Murdoch had one local obstacle to overcome before his purchase of channel 5 could become final, as News Corporation had owned the New York Post since it purchased the newspaper in 1976; the Federal Communications Commission's media ownership rules barred common ownership of newspapers and broadcast licenses in the same media market.
The FCC granted Murdoch a temporary waiver to keep the Post and WNYW in order to complete its purchase of the Metromedia television stations.
The station is available on satellite to Direc TV subscribers in the few areas of the Eastern United States that do not have an over-the-air Fox affiliate; Direc TV also carries WNYW on its Latin American service, and on Jet Blue's Live TV inflight entertainment system.
WNYW, channel 5, is the flagship station of the Fox Television Network in New York City and New Jersey.
WNYW is owned by the Fox Television Stations subsidiary of 21st Century Fox, and operates as part of a duopoly with Secaucus, New Jersey-based My Network TV flagship station WWOR-TV (channel 9).
On June 14, 1954, WABD and Du Mont moved into the million Du Mont Tele-Centre at 205 East 67th Street in Manhattan's Lenox Hill area, inside the shell of the space formerly occupied by Jacob Ruppert's Central Opera House; channel 5 is still headquartered in the same building as of 2018, which was later renamed the Metromedia Tele Center, and now known as the Fox Television Center.
By February 1955, Du Mont realized it could not continue in network television, and decided to shut down the network's operations and operate WABD and its Washington, D. station WTTG (also operating on channel 5) as independent stations, having previously sold WDTV in Pittsburgh (now KDKA-TV) to the locally-based Westinghouse Electric Corporation; the Westinghouse sale, arguably, hastened Du Mont's demise.
Among the notable Giants games aired on the station is the team's victory in Super Bowl XLII, when the Giants defeated the New England Patriots, who were 18-0 at the time and were one win away from the second perfect season in NFL history.
