KPXO-TV (digital channel 41) is the Hawaii affiliate of the Ion Television network, owned by Ion Media Networks. KPXO serves the island of Oahu with three multiplexed digital subchannels; 66.1 is Ion, 66.2 is qubo, and 66.3 is Ion Life.

KPXO was a charter affiliate of the network when it began as Pax TV in 1998. Because it does not have any satellite stations, KPXO is available on cable statewide (where it airs on channel 27 on Oceanic Time Warner Cable), although on the "Big Island" of Hawaii it received Ion and its predecessor networks via former satellite sister KLEI (channel 6), even though the entire state of Hawaii is a single television market.

Digital television[edit]

In 2009, KPXO left analog channel 66, remaining on digital channel 41 when the analog to digital transition was completed on January 15, 2009.[1]
