WXAX-CD, channel 26, is a class A, low-power broadcast television station based in Clearwater, Florida, owned by Una Vez Mas Holdings, LLC. It is currently Tampa Bay's Azteca América affiliate. The station has been on the air intermittently since January 24, 1990. Previously, WXAX-CD was home to SUR (another Spanish network), HTV (Latino music videos) and UATV (general entertainment).

The station was originally licensed and originated in St. Petersburg, then Clearwater, and, finally, Tampa. It is once again licensed in Clearwater, broadcasting from the Riverview antenna farm, directional towards Tampa. The general signal area covers most of Tampa and southwestern Hillsborough County, but barely reaches Pinellas County.

Currently, only Verizon FiOS and Dish Network offer the channel to Tampa Bay-area subscribers; other systems, such as Bright House and Comcast, do not offer this channel.
