KPRC Channel, popularly known as KPRC TV is the NBC affiliated television station in Houston. KPRC Channel is broadcasted in a high definition digital signal on UHF channel 35. Post-Newsweek Stations, a subsidiary of The Washington Post Company, own KPRC Channel. The transmitter that transmits the digital signal is located at Fort Bend County near Missouri city. KPRC Channel maintains its studios in Sharpstown district, which is located in the southwest side of the city.

KPRC Channel started its digital transmission only later in 2009. Prior to that, KPRC TV was the only channel in Houston on the VHF Dial that did not air on cable channel. This was due to the interference that was caused due to the low band VHF terrestrial signal. To overcome this issue, KPRC Channel was placed in Comcast cable 12. Some of the cable networks that were on the outskirts of Houston who were not affected by the interference carried the channel in their cable channel 2.

KPRC Channel is broadcasted in both 480i, 4:3 signal and 1080i 16:9 signal. Most of the programs that are broadcasted by the channel during daytime are syndicated programs such as The Ricki Lake Show, The Dr. Oz Show, Entertainment Tonight, Extra and The Jeff Probst Show. The popularity of the channel has been achieved due to the wide variety of programs that are broadcasted by the channel. The channel was first aired in 1949 and has a lot of experience in the broadcasting business. KPRC Channel was first aired as KLEE TV and was owned by the hotelier W.Albert Lee. It was the first television station in Houston and was very successful. In 1950, KLEE TV was sold to Hobby Family. The channel uses this experience to broadcast programs that are of very high quality and to the liking of the audiences.
