History

KNBX-CD (meaning Nevada BoX) was owned by Equity Media Holdings and previously broadcast programming from TeleFórmula. Before that, it had aired programming from MTV2. Like most over-the-air MTV2 affiliates, it was an affiliate of The Box until that network's acquisition by Viacom in 2001.

KNBX-CD was sold at auction to Mako Communications on April 16, 2009.[1] Most recently, it operated as a translator of Azteca América affiliate KMCC (channel 34).
