KBOP-LD is an independent television station serving the Dallas / Fort Worth Metroplex, licensed in Dallas, Texas, owned and operated by D.T.V., LLC. This station holds a construction permit for digital broadcasting on RF channel 20. It is not available on Time Warner Cable, Charter Communications, or Verizon Fios at this time.
The station started out as a Spanish independent in 1997 as K62CY on channel 62. Shortly, the station was moved to channel 31 as K31FA. This signal was overlapping KUVN-LP (before it moved to channel 47) reception, so in 2001, the station moved its broadcasts to channel 57 as K57IG where it picked up the Mas Musica affiliate passed over from K25FW and KLEG-LP. After 2 years, the station dropped Mas Musica and changed formats to English-language infomercials as KSEX-LP. In 2009 the station went silent.
On January 5, 2011, KSEX swapped callsigns with San Diego TV station KBOP and resumed broadcasting on channel 20 on January 14, 2011 with a sub-channel mixture of religious programming and infomercials.
