KVFW-LD is a low-powered television station licensed in Fort Worth, Texas to New York Spectrum Holding Company, LLC. It is currently airing a Spanish-language religious format. It is not available on either Time Warner Cable, Charter Communications or Verizon FiOS because there is no legal requirement for a cable system to carry a low-power station or a station with insignificant numbers of viewers.

This station began its broadcast in 1998 as a TBN Enlace USA affiliate on channel 65 as K65HA, the KVFW call letters were later issued in late 1999. Then in 2003, they made plans to move to channel 38 for better frequency, making their original channel its repeater without authorization. After a complaint to the FCC, the newly illegal channel 65 transmission was shut down. That same year, its TBN Enlace USA affiliation was taken away and moved to KDTX-TV for one of its digital subchannels. During that time from 2004 to 2009, it was the flagship station for Reino Unido Network, a Spanish religious network operated by Templo Jesucristo Rey de Gloria. Their slogan was "Venga tu Reino y Hágase tu Voluntad (a section of the Our Father in Spanish)".

In June 2009, Reino Unido Network moved its Dallas broadcast to KATA-CD subchannel 50.2. KVFW-LP ceased its analog broadcast shortly thereafter. Since May 2010, KVFW has been affiliated with the Almavision network, making the network's third return to the Dallas/Fort Worth market. However in September 2010, KVFW returned to its previous independent Spanish Religious programming.

Sometime in early 2014, Gerald Benavides (the station's original owner) sold KVFW-LD to New York Spectrum Holding Company, LLC.
