WBOC-DT2 is a digital subchannel of WBOC-TV and is a FOX affiliate. The company was founded as a UPN affiliate, as "UPN 21 Total TV" in March 2003. In January 2006, the UPN and WB networks announced they would merge into a single network called the CW. WBOC-TV did not seek the CW affiliation, which instead went to WBD, the cable-only WB affiliate for Delmarva. On May 9, 2006, WBOC-TV announced that "UPN 21" would become a Fox affiliate, beginning on August 21, 2006. WBOC-TV produces a newscast for the station, currently known as WBOC News at 10 on FOX21.For viewers unable to receive the digital-only signal, both local-area cable systems, operated by Comcast and Mediacom, carry "Fox 21 Delmarva" on channel 5 and 10.

WBOC-DT2 is one of the few stations that IDs with its actual digital channel number (21) rather than its PSIP channel number derived from its analog frequency (16.2).
