KBPX-LD is a low-power television station in Houston, Texas. Affiliated with The Country Network, it broadcasts in digital on UHF channel 46.
The station began broadcasting in 1990 from One Shell Plaza on channel 33 under the call sign K33DB as a low-powered translator for KTFH (renamed KPXB in 1998), in order to improve KTFH's analog coverage in Houston since its full-power analog transmitter site was located in the far northern suburbs of Houston.
The transmitter was moved to the Missouri City tower farm in 1992.
The call sign was changed to KBPX-LP on April 25, 2001.
ION applied to move KBPX-LP to channel 46, though since the full power KPXB now broadcasts from Missouri City, KBPX's former location, it was unclear what purpose the translator would serve.
The station's digital channel is multiplexed:
|Channel||Video||Aspect||PSIP Short Name||Programming|
|46.1||480i||4:3||TCN||The Country Network|
|46.5||QVC||QVC Over Air|
