KDTX-TV, virtual channel 58 (UHF digital channel 45), is a Trinity Broadcasting Network owned-and-operated television station located in Dallas, Texas, United States which also serves Fort Worth and the surrounding metropolitan area. KDTX's studios are located in TBN's International Production Center in Irving, and its transmitter is located in Cedar Hill.
The station first signed on the air on February 9, 1987. In recent years, KDTX has been considered TBN's second-most important station (after its flagship station, KTBN-TV in Santa Ana, California), particularly as the Dallas-Fort Worth market has a large religious base. TBN has since moved several of its operations, including some production facilities, to the Metroplex.
This station's digital signal, like most other full-service TBN owned-and-operated stations, carries five different TBN-run networks.

TBN-owned full-power stations permanently ceased analog transmissions on April 16, 2009.
KDTX-TV shut down its analog signal, over UHF channel 58, on that date. The station's digital signal remained on its pre-transition UHF channel 45, using PSIP to display KDTX-TV's virtual channel as 58 on digital television receivers, which was among the high band UHF channels (52-69) that were removed from broadcasting use as a result of the transition.
