KXTS-LD is a low-power television station in Victoria, Texas, broadcasting locally on channel 41 as an affiliate of CBS.

Before becoming an MNTV affiliate, KXTS-LD was a UPN affiliate. It broadcast MyNetworkTV from September 2006 until September 2011 after the UPN and WB merger into The CW.

KXTS-LD is part of a combo of six Victoria-area television stations owned by Saga Communications, anchored by KAVU-TV. KXTS-LD, before becoming a UPN affiliate was part of the NBC network (that network is now seen on sister station KMOL-LP).

On September 12, 2011, KXTS-LD dropped MyNetworkTV completely (vowing that MyNetworkTV became a programming service in 2009 instead of a full TV network) and became the first CBS affiliate in the Victoria area.[1]

KXTS converted to Digital operations on January 5, 2012, and the Callsign was changed to KXTS-LD.[2] The Station also added a second digital subchannel to carry classic programming from Antenna TV.[3] KXTS is also carried along with two sister stations as a digital subchannel of KAVU-TV.[4]
