KTFV-CD, virtual channel 32 (UHF digital channel 48), branded as UniMás McAllen, is a low-powered, Class A UniMás-affiliated television station licensed to McAllen, Texas, United States. Owned by Entravision Communications (minority owned by Univision's parent, Univision Communications), it is a sister station to Fox/MyNetworkTV affiliateKFXV-LD, channel 67 (and it's translator KXFX-CD), The CW Plus affiliate KCWT-CD (channel 21) and Univision affiliate KNVO (channel 48). The five stations share studios on North Jackson Road in McAllen; KTFV-CD's transmitter is located near Scissors, near the United States-México country line.

Before becoming the primary UniMás affiliate, KTFV was a translator of sister station KXFX-CA alongside KCWT-CA.

After XHRIO dropped the Fox affiliation for MundoFox, residents of the lower Rio Grande Valley had trouble receiving the new low-power Fox signal. Due to this, it was decided to add a feed of KFXV to the second subchannel of KTFV and display it as 67.1 (same display channel as KFXV) in an attempt to reach a larger audience.
