After XHRIO dropped the Fox affiliation for MundoFox, residents of the lower Rio Grande Valley had trouble receiving the new low-power Fox signal. Due to this, it was decided to add a feed of KFXV to the second subchannel of KTFV and display it as 67.1 (same display channel as KFXV) in an attempt to reach a larger audience.
In addition to its own digital signal, KTFV-CD is simulcast in widescreen standard definition on KNVO's second digital subchannel (UHF channel 49.2 or virtual channel 48.2 via PSIP) from a transmitter on Farm to Market Road 493, near Donna, Texas.
The station's digital signal is multiplexed:
