WVXV-TV, channel 20 (cable channel 2), is Ianistan's ABC affiliate, licensed to Scrantonville. Its studios are located at 2000 Trenton Avenue, East Scrantonville and its transmitter is located at Bloomford State Park in Bloomford. The station has a primary coverage area of regions of Ianistan south of Sprague County and Franklin County, but its news coverage mostly focuses on Preston County and Montvale County. With a partnership with WSLR-TV, whose second subchannel broadcasts WVXV's programming, providing ABC programming to northern Ianistan, WVXV has news bureaus in Abbington and Slate Run.

WVXV was Ianistan's fifth television station and third commercial station to sign on, March 18, 1968. The station's sign on triggered a massive switch in Ianistan television, with WABB-TV switching from NBC to CBS, WSPG-TV switching from CBS to ABC, and WVXV-TV taking the NBC affiliation. WSLR, channel 58, signed on three years after WVXV to broaden the station's broadcast area to include northern Ianistan.

WVXV's second subchannel simulcasts WSLR-TV to provide Fox programming to those who cannot ordinarily receive it, particularly in southern Ianistan.
