KDTF-LD (channel 36) is a low-power television station in San Diego, California, United States, affiliated with the Spanish-language UniMás network. It is owned by Entravision Communications alongside Class A Univision affiliate KBNT-CD (channel 17); it is also sister to Azteca América affiliate XHAS-TDT (channel 33) and Milenio Televisión affiliate XHDTV-TDT (channel 49). The latter two stations are owned by Mexican-based Televisora Alco, which is 40% owned by Entravision. All four stations share studios on Ruffin Road in San Diego's Kearny Mesa section; KDTF-LD's transmitter is located on San Miguel Mountain in Spring Valley.

History

The station affiliated with Telefutura, the forerunner to UniMás, sometime in 2006, after talks reportedly broke down with sister station and former UPN affiliate XHUPN (channel 49, now XHDTV-TDT).
