KUNA-LP is a low-powered Telemundo-affiliated television station licensed to Indio, California, United States, serving Palm Springs and the Coachella Valley. It broadcasts an analog signal on UHF channel 15 from a transmitter in the Indio Hills.

Owned by the News-Press & Gazette Company, it is a sister station to Palm Springs-licensed ABC affiliate KESQ-TV (channel 42), Cathedral City-licensed Class A CBS affiliate KPSP-CD (channel 38), Class A Fox affiliate KDFX-CD (channel 33.2, licensed to both Indio and Palm Springs), and Palm Springs-licensed low-powered CW affiliate KCWQ-LD (channel 2). The five stations share studios on Dunham Way in Thousand Palms.

Due to its low-powered status, KUNA-LP does not broadcast a digital signal of its own, and there are no immediate plans to convert the station's signal to digital. However, the station is simulcast in high definition on KPSP's second digital subchannel (UHF channel 38.8 or virtual channel 15.1 via PSIP), and in standard definition on KESQ's eighth digital subchannel (UHF channel 42.8 or virtual channel 15.2 via PSIP). Both KPSP and KESQ transmit from Edom Hill northeast of Cathedral City and I-10.

History[edit]

KUNA-LP signed on the air originally as K15EI on May 15, 1996 and then switched call letters to KUNA-LP on March 31, 2003.
