KLUJ-TV is a religious television station in Harlingen, Texas, broadcasting locally on digital channel 34 (virtual channel 44). Founded August 1, 1983, the station is owned by the Trinity Broadcasting Network, under the license name of Community Educational Television. It maintains studios located on Loop 499 in Harlingen.


The station signed on the air on June 25, 1984 as the Rio Grande Valley's first independent television station before switching to TBN in 1986.

Digital television[edit]

The station's digital signal is multiplexed:

Channel Video Aspect PSIP Short Name Programming
44.1 720p 16:9 TBN Main TBN programming
44.2 Hilsong Hillsong Channel
44.3 480i 4:3 COMBO JUCE TV/Smile
44.4 Enlace Enlace
44.5 SALSA TBN Salsa

TBN-owned full-power stations permanently ceased analog transmissions on April 16, 2009.

Due to the region's high Hispanic population, Enlace USA is broadcast in the first subchannel slot, with TBN seen in the second slot; this is unlike other TBN-owned stations, in which TBN is seen in the first slot and Enlace broadcast in a lower slot (usually the "x.4" position).
