TV Scout was an Austin, Texas, based Digital subchannel owned by Broadcast Television Group LLC.[1]

As a multicast network, TV Scout aired a non-interactive program grid. The grid listed the over-the-air station and its sub-channels in numerical order over a two-hour span and could include a station logo.[2]

The network began dropping affiliates due to financial distress and began winding down operations. As of September 2015, KVHF-LD was the only Affiliate left to be carrying the Network; however, by mid-2016, KVHF began carrying a different on-screen TV Guide by Ventura Broadcasting Company.
