KDTF-LD, virtual channel 36 (UHF digital channel 16), is a UniMás-affiliated television station licensed to San Diego, California, United States. Owned by Entravision Communications, it is a sister station to Class A Univision affiliate KBNT-CD (channel 17), Azteca América affiliate XHAS-TDT (channel 33), and Milenio Televisión affiliate XHDTV-TDT (channel 49). The latter two stations are owned by Mexican-based Televisora Alco, which is 40% owned by Entravision. All four stations share studios on Ruffin Road in San Diego's Kearny Mesa section; KDTF-LD's transmitter is located on San Miguel Mountain in Spring Valley.

History[edit]

The station affiliated with Telefutura, the forerunner to UniMás, sometime in 2006, after talks reportedly broke down with sister station and former UPN affiliate XHUPN (channel 49, now XHDTV-TDT).
