KFFV is a commercial television station in Seattle, Washington, United States, broadcasting locally on digital channel 44 as an independent station branded as KFFV Television. It broadcasts on 44.2 as an affiliate of the Spanish-language Azteca. In addition, the station airs English-language infomercials on its main channel and Chinese-language programming ("AAT Television") on a digital subchannel.
The former KHCV call letters were assigned by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) with a construction permit on October 2, 1989. The station signed on the air 10 years later on January 1, 1999 on Channel 45 after many permit extensions; ten years later, the call letters became KPST.
During the week of August 11, 2006, KHCV started carrying Azteca América (now known simply as Azteca) on its analog channel 45 and on its digital channel 44-2.
On March 1, 2007, KHCV started broadcasting content from GNF Entertainment Network on its digital subchannels 44-3 and 44-4. 44-3 carried GNF "Game & Music" and 44-4 carried GNF "Movie".
The analog broadcast (UHF 45) had been exclusively Azteca América, while the Comcast broadcast of this channel (Channel 15) is Jewelry TV. Since September 10, 2007, the analog UHF channel 45 appears to have carried the Jewelry TV content which is the same as the digital UHF channel 44-1 and Comcast channel 15.
On October 15, 2007, programming from AAT Television started broadcasting on digital channel 44-3.
On November 13, 2008, KHCV filed for a request for silent state for its analog signal.
On September 28, 2009, KHCV became KPST. On December 22, 2009, KPST went silent. The station was evicted from its studios and its STL link couldn't be operated from at the new location. KPST hoped to have the station up and running within a few weeks. The station resumed broadcasting on February 4, 2010. During that time, KPST aired only infomercials on its main channel, 24 hours a day.
The call letters were changed to KFFV on November 15, 2010. The station was purchased at bankruptcy auction by OTA Broadcasting on June 30, 2011; the sale was completed on October 12.
The station's digital channel is multiplexed:

|44.3||AAT TV||AAT Television|
