KNWS-LD digital channel 27 and virtual channel 64 (moving to channel 35), is a low-powered Azteca América-owned-and-operated television station licensed to Brownsville, Texas. This station is owned and operated by HC2 Holdings. KNWS-LD's programming is also seen on KAZH-LD channel 35 and KRZG-CD channel 32 in McAllen, Texas.

The Rio Grande Delta is one of three markets to receive both Azteca America and the original TV Azteca channels (San Diego, El Paso and Laredo are the others). Much of KNWS-LD's programming from Azteca America can also be seen on XHOR-TV (Azteca 7) or XHMTA-TV / XHREY-TV (Azteca 13), sometimes simultaneously.

KNWS-LD was formerly known as KBDF-LP, and KAZH-LD was formerly known as KNDF-LP; the call letters were changed in 2011, after Una Vez Mas acquired the former KNWS-TV in Houston and renamed it KYAZ. The KBDF and KNDF call letters both referred to XHDF-TV, one of TV Azteca's flagship stations.

Newscast[edit]

In early 2007, KBDF-LP, which was then renamed as KNWS-LP in 2011, planned to start a local newscast, which would be produced in Davenport, Iowa by the Independent News Network. [1] However, as of September 2007, it had not yet debuted. [2]
