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.
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).
