This really IS the end of WNBC's analog broadcasts on channel 4 in New York. The station ceased regular analog programming on the channel on June 12, 2009 at 12:30PM. For the next 2 weeks, a loop of DTV instructional videos played, then on June 26 at 10:58 AM, it ended like this.
This is the last 2 minutes, picking up with the end of the last cycle of the NAB's DTV video. What followed was some black, some bars, a variation of a 1970's WNBC-TV test pattern, a brief logo montage, then analog hash. Note that there's no audio with the bars, black or the TP. Other than the server which played back the videos, there were no devices in the nightlight equipment chain that could generate audio. This is the extended version, (the shorter, final 1-minute version is also available here) which shows in real time the transition from nightlight to GOODBYE.
