KPXD is a digital TV station licensed to Arlington, Texas on channel 42 and a ION Television O&O station for Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas. It is owned and operated by ION Media Networks (the former Paxson Communications).

History

Channel 68 began its broadcast as KAQV in 1996 but quickly changed the call letters to KINZ-TV (meaning In TV), showing Infomercials during the Day and Worship Videos during the Night. In early 1998, Paxson communications (now ion Media Networks) bought the station, and renamed the call letters to KPXD-TV as part of its new Pax Network.

As part of a wide-ranging deal that gave NBC partial ownership of Pax, NBC O&O's provided sales and marketing assistance for Pax stations in several markets. Repeats of KXAS's 6 and 10pm news shows were broadcast on KPXD at 6:30 and 10:30 for several years. The news repeats stopped in 2003 when Pax TV was scaling back its programming due to financial losses, therefore much of the afternoon timeslots had to be filled with infomercials. After Pax was rebranded "i", The Worship Network has moved to one of three KPXD's digital subchannels.

The network was renamed once again to ION Television on January 29, 2007.

Digital Television

The station's digital channel is multiplexed:

Analog Channel Digital Channel Programming
68 42.1 Main KPXD programming
42.2 qubo
42.3 ION Life
42.4 Worship

Channel 68 will go off the air on or before February 17, 2009. Channel 42 will continue its digital broadcasts.
