KJBO-LP "My TV KJBO" is the low-powered MyNetworkTV affiliate located in Wichita Falls, Texas. The station broadcasts on channel 35 and does not have a digital signal of its own; however, there is a digital signal that's transmitted on a subchannel of KFDX-TV. KJBO also serves Lawton, Oklahoma and surrounding areas via a repeater:

Beginning in September 2006, KJBO became the Wichita Falls' affiliate of MyNetworkTV when UPN and The WB ceased operations and formed The CW. MyNetworkTV, which is a sister network to Fox, features a two-hour block of original programming six days a week (Monday-Saturday).

As a result of the network changes, Lawton/Wichita Falls' WB affiliate "KWB", which was carried only on cable systems in the area and was not available over-the-air, was expected to be an affiliate of The CW. However, at some point prior to the launch of both The CW and MyNetworkTV, CBS affiliate KAUZ-TV took over the operations of "KWB" and added its signal to a new digital subcarrier channel. As a result, what is now KAUZ-DT2 took The CW Plus affiliation.

Due to its low-powered status, KJBO-LP is not required to air a digital signal of its own and instead continues to operate its low-powered analog signal (and is thus continuing to opt out of the optional maneuver of upgrading to a low-powered digital signal); however, in addition to its low-powered analog signal, KJBO-LP also receives full-market over-the-air digital coverage (although, only in standard definition), via the second digital subchannel of KFDX-TV's (digital subchannel 3.2 for those with digital converters). This airs on UHF channel 28.2 from the same Seymour Highway transmitter in Wichita Falls.
