KBVO-CD, virtual channel 51 (UHF digital channel 51), is the MyNetworkTV affiliate for Austin, Texas and is a repeater of KBVO. It is owned and operated by LIN Media, and sister station to KXAN-TV and KNVA. KBVO-CD broadcasts on UHF channel 51 as a Class A digital television station, but has an application to move to channel 31 with a substantial increase in power.

The KBVO callsign, named after the University of Texas mascot, "Bevo", was formerly used on channel 42, which is now KEYE-TV.

From 2002 until 2008, KBVO was affiliated with Telefutura; that network is now seen on KTFO-CD. After dropping Telefutura, the station began to simulcast KNVA.

Until October 2009, KBVO-CA's programming was also seen on a group of translators formerly used to carry the Hill Country Paramount Network; this ended after the KNVA simulcast was dropped in favor of KBVO's programming (the translators continue to simulcast KNVA).

On March 21, 2014, it was announced that Media General would acquire LIN.[1]
