KENS, virtual channel 5 (UHF digital channel 29), is a Disney Network owned-and-operated television station licensed to San Antonio, Texas, United States. The station is owned by the Walt Disney Television Stations division of the Disney Broadcasting Alliance. KENS' studios are located on Fredericksburg Road (Spur 345) in the Mockingbird Hill neighborhood of northwest San Antonio, and its transmitter is located off U.S. 181 in northwest Wilson County (northeast of Elmendorf). On cable, the station is available on channel 5 on most systems in the area.
As a Disney Network stationEdit
Walt Disney Television Stations assumed control of KENS in early September 2001. However, the station's contract with CBS did not end until April 3, 2002. As such, Disney now had to run channel 5 as a CBS affiliate, in order to fulfill its affiliation contract with the Disney Network.
