K26KJ-D is a low-power Spanish-language Multimedios Televisión outlet in El Paso, Texas. They are owned by Broadcast Group, Ltd., an American business related to XHIJ-TDT.

History[edit]

The station began broadcasting as K69IB on March 6, 1998. It broadcast commonly owned XHIJ-TV, becoming the last new station in the El Paso-Ciudad Juárez-Las Cruces area (after the sign-on of Azteca 7 transmitter XHCJH-TV).

The station changed its callsign to K40FW and moved to channel 40 in 2001 in order to clear channels 60 through 69.

In 2003, K40FW went silent, returning as a Más Musica TV affiliate; in 2006, it began broadcasting Multimedios Televisión.[1]

In 2011, the station became K26KJ on analog channel 26. The station held a permit to flash-cut to digital channel 26, but it did not convert to digital until after Ciudad Juarez analog stations went off the air; analog channel 26 left the air at noon on July 15, 2015, and K26KJ digital launched in its place. However, the station uses virtual channel 25, as KINT-TV (RF channel 25) uses virtual channel 26. The station was licensed for digital operation on July 24, 2015, and changed its call sign to K26KJ-D.
