channel 55 is a low-powered Azteca America
affiliate for the Laredo, Texas
market. It is owned and operated by BMP Radio
. KNEX is branded as Azteca America 4 after its channel number on the local Time Warner Cable
where it is shown. KNEX was once affiliated with Mas Musica and later MTV Tr3s
before it switched programming to Azteca America.
Laredo is one of three markets to receive both Azteca America and the original TV Azteca channels (Rio Grande Delta TV and San Diego TV are the others). Much of KNEX's programming from Azteca America can also be seen on XHLAT-TV (Azteca 7) or XHLNA-TV (Azteca 13), sometimes simultaneously.
