KWBN is a Daystar-owned and operated religious station serving Honolulu, Hawaii. The station is owned and operated by the Word Of God Fellowship and broadcasts on ATSC channel 43 (digital). They can also be seen on Oceanic Cable channel 28 throughout most of the state, with the exception of Hawai'i Island (the "Big Island"), where KWBN is not available at all.

KWBN, which signed on the air in 1999, is one of six religious stations serving the Honolulu television market, with KWHE, KAAH-TV, KALO, KKAI and KUPU being the other five.

KWBN's allocation channel, like KALO and PBS station KHET, is reserved for non-commercial use, and as such, must rely on paid religious programs, educational fare, and viewer donations for support.

Digital television

On January 15, 2009 KWBN left channel 44 and moved to channel 43 when the analog to digital transition was completed.[1]
