History

UniMás 65.1 hit the waves on June 22, 1991 as KJLF-TV. It was originally an English langue independent religious station established by Pete E. Meryl Warren III who already held KCIK launched in Aug 1979. It at its onset broadcasted evangelical program with a mix of sitcoms, cartoons, westerns, family entertainment programs and movies. Over the time religious programs were reduced in favor of classical sitcoms, cartoons as it took a more typical independent look. Channel 65 became a charter WB affiliate on Jan 11, 1995 before being sold to White Knight Broadcasting in 1998. KJLF was removed and KKWB were the new calls afterward. It then signed a secondary affiliation UPN by replacing KMAZ (later KTDO) which shifted to Telemundo in 1998.

Entravision Communications Corporation in 2001 became the new owner of KKWB in 2001. It entered an affiliation agreement with TeleFutura on Jan 29, 2002 and changed the call letters to KTFN. Following the deal UPN and WB were left for KTLA which carried them in El Paso. KFTN after carrying MundoMax for a brief time in 2012 switched to UniMás and is carrying the network since 2013. Ch 65 completed its digital signal transition on June 12, 2009 and is available online for watch.
