KZJL, virtual channel 61 (UHF digital channel 44), is an Estrella TV owned-and-operated television station located in Houston, Texas, United States. The station is owned by Liberman Broadcasting. KZJL maintains studio facilities located on Bering Drive on the city's southwest side, and its transmitter is located in unincorporated northeastern Fort Bend County (near Missouri City).

History[edit]

The station first signed on the air on June 2, 1995, as an affiliate of home shopping network Shop at Home. In 2001, the station was purchased by Liberman Broadcasting and became a Spanish-language independent station; in 2009, KZJL became a charter owned-and-operated station of Liberman's Spanish-language broadcast network Estrella TV.

The station's digital channel is multiplexed:

Channel Video Aspect PSIP Short Name Programming[1]
61.1 480i 4:3 KZJL-D1 Main KZJL programming / Estrella TV
61.2 KZJL-D2 Inmigrante TV

Analog-to-digital conversion[edit]

KZJL discontinued regular programming on its analog signal, over UHF channel 61, on June 12, 2009, the official date in which full-power television stations in the United States transitioned from analog to digital broadcasts under federal mandate. The station's digital signal remained on its pre-transition UHF channel 44,[2] using PSIP to display the station's virtual channel as its former UHF analog channel 61, which was among the high band UHF channels (52-69) that were removed from broadcasting use as a result of the transition.
