KTFV-CD, virtual and UHF digital channel 32, is a low-power, Class A UniMás-affiliated television station licensed to McAllen, Texas, United States. Owned by Entravision Communications, it is sister to Entravision's duopoly of McAllen-licensed Univision affiliate KNVO (channel 48) and Harlingen-licensed Fox affiliate KFXV (channel 60), as well as two other low-power stations all licensed to McAllen: KMBH-LD, channel 67 (and its Brownsville-licensed translator KXFX-CD) and Class A primary CW+ affiliate and secondary PBS member station KCWT-CD (channel 21). Entravision also operates Mexican station (and also a CW+ affiliate) XHRIO-TDT with Mexican company TVNorte. All of the stations share studios on North Jackson Road in McAllen; KTFV-CD's transmitter is located near Scissors, Texas.

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.
