K26KJ is a low-power Spanish-language Multimedios Televisión outlet in El Paso, Texas. They are owned by Broadcast Group, Ltd. Currently, is the only television station in El Paso-Ciudad Juárez that doesn't broadcast in digital signal.

History[edit]

The station began broadcasting as K69IB in March 6, 1998 broadcasting the Ciudad Juárez-based Intermedia-owned XHIJ-TV programming, making the last station in El Paso-Ciudad Juárez-Las Cruces area (after the Ciudad Juárez-based, TV Azteca-owned, Azteca 7-affiliate XHCJH-TV).

The station changed their callsigns to K40FW and moved to the channel 40 in 2001, because the RF Channel numbers 60-69 are for non-television purposes. Other television station in the 60-69 channels is the full power once The WB-affiliate KKWB (and then TeleFutura-affiliate, now UniMás-affiliate KTFN) that is broadcast in channel 65. but in since 2007, began broadcasting in the digital channel 51.

In 2003, K40FW went silent, and later became a Mas Musica TV-affiliate since 2004; until 2006, and then, a Multimedios Televisión-affiliate since 2006.

In 2011, the station became K26KJ and broadcasts in analog channel 26, but has an application to flash-cut the channel to digital channel 26. Please note that since 1984 until June 12, 2009, the analog channel 26 was occupied by th full-power Univision-affiliate KINT-DT, the another station now broadcasts on digital channel 25 (Virtual Channel 26.1).

The FCC granted the station a construction permit to cease programming analog channel 26, and begin broadcasting in K26KJ-D Digital channel 26 RF (Virtual 40.1).[4]
