KAKW-DT is a television station licensed to Killeen, Texas, serving the Waco and Austin markets as a Univision owned-and-operated station on channel 62 from a tower approximately halfway between Austin and Killeen. Although it is based in the Waco market, most of its news and advertising is targeted for the Austin market.

KAKW was originally a dual UPN/The WB affiliate for the Waco/Killeen/Temple market, and was owned by Communications Corporation of America, along with simulcast Fox affiliates KWKT (Waco) and KYLE (Bryan/College Station). That was until 2002 when KAKW dropped both networks and expanded its market coverage to Austin and became a Univision affiliate under new ownership of the Spanish television network itself. It also started up a Spanish news operation. KWKT and KYLE would pick up The WB as secondary affiliation while UPN viewers had to rely on Dallas-Fort Worth station KTXA for de-facto network programming until 2006 when CBS affiliates KWTX-TV and KBTX-TV launched digital subchannels to carry UPN programming. Both have since became The CW affiliates when The WB and UPN merged into that new network later that September.

Until 2009, KAKW also operated a repeater in Austin, KAKW-CA channel 31. In 2009, this station switched to Telefutura programming, as KTFO-CA.
