KXOF-CD is a Class A Digital television station in Laredo, Texas, broadcasting locally as an affiliate of the UniMás network on digital channel 31.1. KXOF-CD's digital channel 31 also has one subchannel 31.2 KETF-CD Fox.

History[edit]

The station began on channel 15 as K15EZ in 1997, moving to channel 25 in 1999 as K25GN. From 1999 to 2005, it was KZLD-LP, which aired the primetime lineup of the PAX network. Entravision bought the station in 2005, in which they switched the station to the Spanish-language Telefutura network as KETF-CA. In 2009, KETF-CA went off the air due to XHBR transmitting digitally on channel 25.1. In June 2009, KETF-CA applied for a permit to start transmitting digitally on channel 31.1. In January 2010, it began broadcasting on digital channel 31.1,[1] and changed its call sign to KETF-CD on January 3, 2011. On January 7, 2013, Telefutura changed its name to UniMás.

KETF-CD and sister station KXOF-CD swapped call signs on December 13, 2018.[2][3]

KXOF-CD began broadcasting on channel 31.1, and carries KETF-CD Fox 720p HD programming on sub-channel 31.2 in January 2010.
