K25FW-D is a Home Shopping Network affiliate for the Dallas / Fort Worth Metroplex, licensed to Corsicana, Texas, owned and operated by Ventana Television, the holding company for HSN's low-power television stations.

History[edit]

The station, previously owned by Caballero Television (in turn, owned by Eduardo Caballero), signed on as a Mas Musica affiliate for almost 3 years, showing Spanish music videos. In August 2001, the station was acquired by Ventana Television and dropped Mas Musica in favor of HSN.

K25FW-D was one of the last remaining low-powered analog stations in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, having switched to digital on January 24, 2011.

KPXD-TV (as well as all other Ion Television-owned & operated stations) acquired HSN on channel 68.6 sometime in late 2013 / early 2014. At that time, K25FW-D began broadcasting "HSN2". Two years later, after Ion Media Networks lost the rights to HSN, the network returned to K25FW-D.

With Ion Television-affiliated KPXD-TV moving to physical channel 25, it is unknown whether K25FW-D will continue operations on another channel or cease operations altogether.
