K47DF-D, virtual channel 47 (UHF digital channel 22), branded on-air as "KAJA", is a low-power Telemundo-affiliated television station licensed to Corpus Christi, Texas, United States. Owned by the E. W. Scripps Company, it is sister to NBC affiliate KRIS-TV (channel 6) and low-power independent station K22JA-D; Scripps also operates CBS affiliate KZTV (channel 10) through a shared services agreement (SSA) with owner SagamoreHill Broadcasting. The four stations share studios on Artesian Street in Downtown Corpus Christi; K47DF-D's transmitter is located in Robstown. The station is simulcast in high definition on KZTV's second digital subchannel to increase its broadcasting radius.
On cable, K47DF-D is available on Charter Spectrum channel 16. From December 13, 2011 to May 2012, then-owner Cordillera Communications and the cable company (as Time Warner Cable at the time) were under a dispute regarding carriage fees, leaving TWC's Corpus Christi area customers without Telemundo.
It originally carried programming from the Telemundo network. As of September 26, 2010, it carried programming from Azteca América. However, on September 30 it flipped back to Telemundo.
K68DJ had applied to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for permission to move to UHF channel 43. As a low-power station, K68DJ was not required to broadcast digitally. On February 20, 2013, the FCC cancelled the station's license, citing operating on an out-of-core channel (52 to 69). As a result of this notice KAJA had ceased transmissions on K68DJ on January 2013 and went digital on a new channel with new call letters of K22JA-D. In 2014, K22JA-D became the digital companion channel for K47DF as K47DF-D. KAJA can now be seen on K47DF-D 47.1 in 720p.
