KBVO-CD, virtual channel 14 (UHF digital channel 31), is the MyNetworkTV affiliate for Austin, Texas and is a repeater of KBVO-TV. It is owned and operated by Media General, and sister station to KXAN-TV and KNVA. KBVO-CD broadcasts on UHF channel 31 as a Class A digital television station. KBVO-CD previously operated with just .075 kW on channel 51 before upgrading to 15 kW on channel 31 in March 2015.

The KBVO callsign, named after the University of Texas mascot, "Bevo", was formerly used on channel 42, which is now KEYE-TV.

From 2002 until 2008, KBVO was affiliated with Telefutura; that network is now seen on KTFO-CD. After dropping Telefutura, the station began to simulcast KNVA.

On March 21, 2014, it was announced that Media General would acquire LIN.[1] The merger was completed on December 19.[2]
