K35DG-D, virtual and UHF digital channel 35, branded on-air as UCSD TV, was a low-powered, Class A UCTV-affiliated television station licensed to San Diego, California, United States. The station was owned by the University of California San Diego. On cable, the station was carried on Spectrum digital channel 1231 and Cox digital channel 135. Their transmitter was located atop Mount Soledad.


In the Federal Communications Commission (FCC)'s incentive auction, K35DG-D sold its spectrum for $24,020,383; at the time, the station indicated that it would enter into a post-auction channel sharing agreement.[1] K35DG-D ceased operations October 25, 2017,[2] and its license was surrendered to the FCC for cancellation on October 27, 2017; UCSD TV continues to be carried on Cox, Spectrum, and AT&T.[3]


The channel aired public lectures, as well as documentaries and fine arts programming from UCTV, with black-and-white movies on Saturdays.
