KZJL, virtual channel 61 (UHF digital channel 44), is an Estrella TV owned-and-operated television station licensed to Houston, Texas, United States. Owned by Liberman Broadcasting, KZJL maintains studio facilities located on Bering Drive on the city's southwest side, and its transmitter is located in unincorporated northeastern Fort Bend County (near Missouri City).


The station first signed on the air on June 2, 1995, as an affiliate of home shopping network Shop at Home. In 2001, the station was purchased by Liberman Broadcasting and became a Spanish-language independent station; in 2009, KZJL became a charter owned-and-operated station of Liberman's Spanish-language broadcast network Estrella TV.

Analog-to-digital conversion[edit]

KZJL discontinued regular programming on its analog signal, over UHF channel 61, on June 12, 2009, as part of federally mandated transition from analog to digital television.[2] The station's digital signal remained on its pre-transition UHF channel 44, using PSIP to display KZJL's virtual channel as 61 on digital television receivers, which was among the high band UHF channels (52-69) that were removed from broadcasting use as a result of the transition.
