KILM, virtual channel 64, is an independent television station licensed to Barstow, California, USA, but with studios in Pasadena, California. The station is owned by Multicultural Television Broadcasting, LLC.. KILM carries programming Celebrity Shopping Network. As of December 2010, KILM is the only television station owned by Sunbelt, sister company MRBI is better known for its radio group.
KILM originally began broadcasting in 1987 as KVVT, the only independent commercial television station in the Mojave Desert region to provide local news programs. It became KHIZ in 1992. In the mid-2000s, the station changed its format and service area to be transmitted in both the Los Angeles Metropolitan Area and the San Bernardino-Riverside Metropolitan Area regions. Multicultural purchased Sunbelt Television, Inc. in 2007. KHIZ eventually incorporated multicultural programming into its schedule.
At one time, KHIZ aired a weekday morning news program, Inland Empire Live, that was produced from the facilities of WSEE-TV in Erie, Pennsylvania and distributed to KHIZ via satellite transmission.
FilmOn took over the station's operations under an LMA on September 1, 2012, at which point it became KILM.
Conversion to all digital
On February 17, 2009, KHIZ began broadcasting digital only on UHF channel 44, and discontinued analog transmissions on UHF channel 64, however, through the use of PSIP, digital tuners will still receive KHIZ on 64.
