KTAS, virtual channel 33 (UHF digital channel 34), is a Telemundo-affiliated television station licensed to San Luis Obispo, California, United States and serving the Central Coast of California. The station is locally owned by Raul and Consuelo Palazuelos. KTAS' studios are located on Carmen Lane in Santa Maria, and its transmitter is located atop Cuesta Peak.
Channel 33 first signed on in January 1990 as KADE, owned by the owners of KADY in Oxnard, California (now KBEH), rebroadcasting its sister station in Oxnard with the exception of nightly Fox network programming. KADE signed off in 1993.

KTAS shut down its analog signal, over UHF channel 33, on February 17, 2009, the original target date in which full-power television stations in the United States were to transition from analog to digital broadcasts under federal mandate (which was later pushed back to June 12, 2009). The station's digital signal remained on its pre-transition UHF channel 34. Through the use of PSIP, digital television receivers display the station's virtual channel as its former UHF analog channel 33.
