KVMM-CD is a television station in Santa Barbara, California, and is owned-and-operated by HC2 Holdings. The station broadcasts locally on digital channel 28 (virtual channel 41).

On July 23, 1992 the station signed on as K19DE and later moved to its present channel with the callsign K41EP in 1999. KVMM-CA was granted class A status in 2003.

On September 25, 2006, KVMM switched to the new MTV Tres network (now simply known as Tres since July 2010), which was created as a result of Viacom's acquisition of Mas Musica. As of 2015, it is the only free-to-air asset owned by Viacom entirely (and only terrestrial Tres station). The remainder of the Más Música stations have been sold off to other parties, along with other transactions involving MTV2 free-to-air stations.

KVMM-CD was granted class A digital television station authorization on UHF channel 41 by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) on December 14, 2009.[1] The station moved to channel 28 effective May 24, 2018.
