KEZT-CD is a Home Shopping Network affiliate for the Sacramento, California metro area, owned and operated by Univision Communications. It first aired programming from the Telefutura network, then when that network acquired KTFK-TV (channel 64), channel 23 switched to Home Shopping Network. This made KEZT one of two television stations owned by Univision to broadcast in English (along with KUVI-DT, the MyNetworkTV affiliate for Bakersfield); however, it re-airs a Spanish-language newscast and two Spanish-language public affairs programs from KUVS-DT (channel 19) on Sunday mornings to meet Federal Communications Commission (FCC) requirements regarding local programming on class A television stations.

Since it was a class-A low-power analog station, it stayed on the air well after the June 2009 cutoff, but left the air on January 26, 2012. It was replaced with a digital broadcast (in 4x3 standard-def with 2-channel sound) the same day.
