KXLA digital channel 51 is an independent television station licensed to Rancho Palos Verdes, California and serving the Los Angeles area. It telecasts Asian programming in Mandarin Chinese, Japanese (English subtitled), Korean and Vietnamese as well as infomercials. Channel 44 signed on the air in December 2000 as KRPA and broadcast programming from the America One network. The station changed calls to KXLA on August 8, 2001.

In addition to Asian language programming in the evenings and early mornings, KXLA also broadcasts public affairs and children's programs for one hour weekday afternoons and shopping programs weekend afternoons and overnight on the weekdays.
