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.


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).
