KCSO-LD, virtual channel 33 (VHF digital channel 3), is a Telemundo-affiliated television station located in Sacramento, California, United States. The station is owned by Serestar Communications Corporation. KCSO-LD maintains studio facilities located on Media Place in Modesto, and its transmitter is located near San Andreas. The station is available on most cable television providers, as well as Dish Network and DirecTV channel 33 throughout the market. Due to its low-powered broadcasting radius, KCSO's Telemundo programming is simulcast on KSPX-TV digital channel 29.7 and on translator stations KMUM-CD and KMMW-LD in Sacramento and Stockton.

KCSO-LD is also available locally on Comcast Xfinity channels 25 and 714 (HD), AT&T U-verse channels 25 and 1025 (HD), Consolidated Communications channel 25 and Wave Broadband channels 610 and 704 (HD) in Placer County, channels 15 and 715 (HD) in Yolo County.

News operation

KCSO launched a local news department (with newscasts branded as Noticiero 33) following its sign-on. The half-hour local evening news program had a small viewership and was canceled after five years on the air. Later, it aired on-air news briefs online called Telemundo 33 Al Día on their website from their control room. In late 2014, it started airing morning news briefs called Noticias 33 Por la manana,which aired at :25s and :55s from 7am-9am during Telemundo's Un Nuevo Dia morning news program.
