Long Description:
"KTSF is an independent television station in San Francisco, California. It broadcasts its analog signal on UHF channel 26, and its digital signal on UHF channel 27. It is owned by the Lincoln Broadcasting Company.

Positioning itself as a multilingual outlet, the station broadcasts many non-English programs (the majority of which are in Mandarin and Cantonese, with some in Taiwanese, Japanese, Korean, Tagalog, and Vietnamese), usually with (non-English) subtitles. The bulk of this programming is during prime time; the daytime hours are mostly English-language infomercials. KTSF is the only station in the United States broadcasting nightly, live local and international news programming in both Cantonese and Mandarin. Newscasts in Cantonese are broadcast live weekdays 7-8pm and Saturdays 6-6:30pm; newscasts in Mandarin are broadcast live weekdays 10-11pm and Sundays 6-6:30pm.

Iron Chef gained much of its initial American following from subtitled broadcasts on KTSF; the show's popularity on KTSF and similar stations led to the creation of a dubbed version for the Food Network.

KTSF was a part-time subscription station of ON-TV in the 1980s, airing movies in the evening with a scrambled signal viewable with rented de-scrambling equipment. Non-subscribers saw a scrambled picture with an audio message telling them how to subscribe.

The station's studio building is located in Brisbane, California. Its transmitter is located on San Bruno Mountain." (visit link)
