KTFD-DT, virtual channel 14 (UHF digital channel 15), is a UniMás-affiliated television station serving Denver, Colorado, United States that is licensed to Boulder. The station is owned by Univision Communications; Entravision Communications Corporation, which owns Univision affiliate KCEC (channel 59), operates KTFD under a local marketing agreement. The two stations share studio facilities located on Grant Street in Denver's Speer neighborhood; KCEC maintains transmitter facilities located atop Mount Morrison in western Jefferson County.
The station first signed on the air on February 22, 1996 as KTVJ. Founded by Roberts Broadcasting, it originally operated as an independent station. In January 2003, Roberts sold the station to Univision Communications. Two months later on March 10, 2003, the station changed its call sign to KTFD-TV (which was modified to KTFD-DT on June 23, 2009, in correspondence with the callsign modifications to the "-DT" suffix applied by all Univision-owned stations following the digital television transition), and became an owned-and-operated station of Univision's secondary network TeleFutura.

KTFD-TV shut down its analog signal, over UHF channel 14, on June 12, 2009, the official date in which full-power television in the United State transitioned from analog to digital broadcasts under federal mandate. The station's digital signal remained on its pre-transition UHF channel 15. Through the use of PSIP, digital television receivers display the station's virtual channel as its former UHF analog channel 14.
