KXVU-LP is a low-power television station in Chico, California, broadcasting locally on channel 17 as an affiliate of the Antenna TV network. The station is owned by Sinclair Broadcast Group, owners of KRCR-TV in Redding, KRVU-LD and KUCO-LD in Chico and KECA-LD in Eureka.
The station commenced broadcasting in 2006. It was founded by Chester Smith of Sainte Partners II, L.P., joining sister station KUCO-LD (their Univision affiliate) as the only two Spanish-language stations in the North Valley until they also founded KKTF-LD (the UniMás affiliate). After the sale of Sainte's assets to Bonten Media Group (owners of ABC affiliates KRCR-TV in Redding and KAEF-TV in Eureka) in 2014, the new owners sold the rights of Telemundo to K4 Media Holdings and moved the station from KXVU to KNVN-DT2 channel 24.2, which is now owned by Heartland Media.
