KTFV-CD, branded as UniMás McAllen, is a low-power television station in McAllen, Texas, broadcasting locally as an affiliate of the UniMás network on channel 32.1. It was an affiliate of the Telefutura network until its nationwide rebranding in 2013.

KTFV-CD programming can also be seen on the digital signal of KNVO channel 48.2.

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.
