KUVE-TV is a full-service television station in Green Valley, Arizona, broadcasting to the Tucson metropolitan area in analog on UHF channel 46 and in digital on UHF channel 47 as an affiliate of Univisión. Founded October 31, 1988, the station is owned by Univisión, and has its main transmitter atop Mount Bigelow in the Santa Catalina Mountains, northeast of Tucson. The station also operates a repeater in Tucson, KUVE-CA channel 38, broadcasting from the Tucson Mountains to the west of downtown and serving the northwest parts of the metropolitan area shielded from the primary station by Mount Lemmon.


On October 31, 1988, the FCC granted a permit to Sungilt Corporation to construct a full-service television station on UHF channel 46 to serve Green Valley and surrounding area. The station at first was identified by its application ID, 830311KN, and did not receive call letters until nearly two years later, in September 1990, when it took the call letters KXGR. After twelve years, five expired construction permits and two transmitter location changes, the station applied for its license on December 21 2000 and signed on as a Pax TV affiliate on January 5, 2001, pursuant to Program Test Authority. However, at the completion of the first day of program testing, the station's transmitter failed, and it was unable to return to the airwaves until June 1, and then, only at low power for a minimum of two hours a day. After ten days, the station was again forced to go dark, and after being threatened with license cancellation, KXGR advised the FCC on November 28 2001 that they had resumed program testing. [cite web |url=http://fjallfoss.fcc.gov/cgi-bin/ws.exe/prod/cdbs/pubacc/prod/leg_det.pl?Application_id=544550&File_number=BLCT-20001221ABN |title=KXGR Legal Action Information |work=FCC CDBS database |date=2001-01-12 |accessdate=2007-08-20] The station was finally licensed on June 2 2003.

In January 2002, shortly after resuming program testing, Sungilt agreed to sell the station to Univision, which had been serving Tucson with KUVE-LP, a low-power translator of Phoenix station KTVW-TV. The sale was approved by the FCC in September 2003 and completed in November. The new owners changed the station's call sign to KUVE-TV, to match the low-power station's calls.


KUVE-TV broadcasts an identical schedule to KTVW, including their newscast, "Noticias 33", although the stations maintain separate broadcast facilities. However, a 3-hour overnight segment of locally-produced programming is seen on KUVE on Monday mornings, to comply with KUVE-CA's Class A license.
