KHTV-CD, virtual channel 6 (UHF digital channel 22), is a low-powered, Class A television station licensed to Los Angeles, California, United States. The station is owned by Venture Technologies Group. The station transmits from the Mt. Harvard Radio Site in the San Gabriel Mountains.

History[edit]

The station was founded on October 22, 1993. It signed on as K38EA on channel 38, before moving to channel 48 as KHTV-LP, starting in 2000 as an affiliate of now defunct Home Shopping en Español, later rebranding to HSE (Spanish-language channel operated by parent channel Home Shopping Network) until HSE ceased operations in June 2002. When KOCE launched its digital signal on channel 48, this displaced KHTV-LP to channel 67. It stayed on channel 67 until December 31, 2011, when the last of the LPTV stations still using out-of-core channels 52-69 had to vacate that spectrum. In 2012, KHTV-LP converted to digital as KHTV-LD and moved to channel 27. On July 11, 2012, the station received class A status and changed its call sign to KHTV-CD. In 2019, as part of the repack, KHTV-CD moved to its current channel 22 allocation, channel sharing with MeTV owned-and-operated station KAZA-TV.

The KHTV call letters were originally used by an unrelated full-power station in Portland, Oregon on channel 27, and in Houston, Texas on channel 39.
