This should really be split up into two forums, as it seems most of the posts are about either Tijuana/San Diego or Juarez/El Paso.

Here's a post about neither.

I was just in the Yuma AZ area and found that XHILA-TDT 66.x (RF 46) Mexicali BCN (Arnolda Cabada de la O) is multicasting, with local programming on channel 66.1, Cadena Tres network programming on 66.2, and a test pattern on 66.3.

OK, then let's have 3 forums: Tijuana/SD, Juarez/El Paso, and Other.

If this were a more active forum, I might be persuaded to agree with you. But this is the 667th post in 5-1/3 years - I don't see the need for separate forums. JMHO.

Well, Azteca Tijuana took it´s time but, finally, it´s here. Official announcement via this link: http://www.proyecto40.com/HD/

XHTVM, Mexico City´s Proyecto 40 is available on XHJK-TDT 28-2 and, best of all, they´re broadcasting in 1080i HD. Both RF 28 channels are in 1080i HD but, i don´t know their bandwidht of both signals (28-1 and 28-2).

This new addition answers my question of: "is it possible to broadcast, at least, 2 HD signals on a single RF channel (720p or 1080i)?" Given the limited bandwith with their signal encoders i though that it was not possible.

Can somebody scan these two channels and confirm their bandwidth just to have a better idea of their band management.

For now, this proves that it is possible to broadcast, at least, 2 HD signals on a single RF channel. Let´s hope that Televisa does the same thing for subchannels XETV-TDT 6-2 and XHUAA-TDT 57-2 (XHGC-Televisa 5 and XEQ-Televisa 9 respectively) to upgrade their video scan to 1080i or 720p HD.

We are still waiting for XHBJ-TDT 44 to be on the air sometime soon.

They have also added Proyecto 40 to XHAQ 5.2 (RF 28) in Mexicali. I have a transport stream read but cannot attach an HTML file. If I upload with a .txt extension, it thinks it's a text file, so the browser does not interpret the HTML code. When I get it posted, I will send out a notification.

Edit:

Trip posted it on RabbitEars.

Same here in Juarez/El Paso area, Once TV is on 11-2 in HD, sharing the same RF channel as 11-1, so it's possible 2 HD signals...

Now I wish KVIA/The CW will do the same and dump the 2 other subchannels..

BTW I'm really really enjoying Televisa's "Canal 5" in HD, not only the quality is awesome but lots of HD content and MTS channel in full english (for movies, series, even cartoons!)

Well they did it !

According to the news, TJ has about 1.5 million people and less than 200,000 free converters were distributed !
Now when one complains they say that the cost is 800 some pesos for converter and/or antenna !

Anyone know when the "free" converters were given away ?

There's no news of any free converters in Juarez Area yet, I don't know how they distributed those in Tijuana...

Knowing people, many with no analog TV must have applied for them, got them and sold them to the people that didn't get any (and clearly needed them)

The analog shutoff has been postponed to 18 July. The "apagón analógico" left thousands of viewers without tv programming. The local news XEWT showed huge lines of people asking for a converter. I did noticed that when the analog shutoff took place XHBJ turned on their digital transmitter on channel 44. The digital channel is now off air and the analog channel has been transmitting on channel 45 as before.

In my opinion the best coverage has been done by Azteca's Ch40. They explained that about 1 and 1/2 months ago in one on the colonias, some neighbors saw a young woman walking along the street with some converters. She had no patch or ID identifying what organization she was with. If a person saw her pass by and asked for a converter, the girl gave it away, otherwise she just kept on walking. In other words, she did not visit every house !

And as for 14, 000 people without a converter, I'ver heard the figure is more like 700,000! That probably includes the people in Tecate, Rosarito, etc.

And all the Mexicali population I believe they also get signals from Tijuana's channels (thank El Paso/Las Cruces distance wise)

Mexicali has its own set of local stations. Terrain prevents the Mexicali area from seeing the Tijuana signals or XHDTV from Tecate.

Terrain is a serious problem for TV in much of Mexico. That is why some co-channel analog TV stations are only 50 or so miles apart. Channel 2 in Saltillo and Monterrey are good examples.

Bit late to respond but the 2014 and 2016 olympics will be broadcasted by the Carlos Slim channel 22, this is some sad news, I won't be able to watch the Sochi games live, and settle for NBC tape delays...

http://www.forbes.com/sites/doliaestevez/2013/03/25/exclusive-rights-to-broadcast-olympic-games-helps-tycoon-carlo-slim-to-enter-television/

So the OIC has a price tag.. nice to know..

Channel 22 is not owned by Carlos Slim.
XEIMT-TV channel 22, also known as "Canal 22", is a Mexican cultural and educational television station owned and operated by Televisión Metropolitana S.A. de C.V., the broadcasting arm of Conaculta (Consejo Nacional para la Cultura y las Artes, or "National Council for Culture and the Arts", a federal agency).

Programming on XEIMT generally consists of educational programs from Edusat, documentaries and cultural programming.

XEIMT is generally on the air daily from 7AM to 2AM. A feed for the United States provided to cable and satellite providers is also provided.

XEIMT was originally one of three public television stations in Mexico City owned by the Instituto Mexicano de la Televisión (Imevisión); the others were XHIMT-TV and XHDF-TV. When the latter two were spun off to a new commercial broadcaster in 1993, TV Azteca, XEIMT remained an educational station, under Conaculta.

America Movil SAB (AMXL) said it reached an agreement to broadcast the 2014 Winter Olympic Games through 26 of Mexico’s regional television networks, sidestepping the two major national broadcasters.

The company, Latin America’s largest mobile-phone carrier, will also air the games on its Claro Sports cable-TV channel and on its UnoTV website, it said today in a statement. Mexico City-based America Movil, controlled by billionaire Carlos Slim, holds exclusive rights for coverage of the Sochi, Russia, Olympics across all platforms in Latin America, excluding Brazil.

The agreement proves America Movil can reach a national audience without working with Grupo Televisa SAB (TLEVICPO) and TV Azteca SAB, which dominate Mexico’s broadcast-TV ratings. Slim, whose companies haven’t advertised through the two broadcasters since 2011, has sought to circumvent them as their media businesses come into direct competition with his telecommunications empire.

“These will be the Olympic Games with the most coverage in the history of Mexico,” Arturo Elias, Slim’s spokesman and the director of UnoTV, said today in a news conference in Mexico City.

While Televisa and TV Azteca haven’t asked for permission to broadcast the games, America Movil remains open to programming deals with both broadcasters and other parties, he said. America Movil also holds the Latin American rights to broadcast the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro.

A press representative at Televisa declined to comment. TV Azteca’s press office didn’t reply to requests for comment.

“The broadcast of these Games will be in reach of all citizens,” America Movil said. The local broadcasters range from Mexico City’s Canal 22 to the Baja California Sur State Institute of Radio and Television’s Canal 8.

Yeah I think this is a big move for Slim to have a OTA national channel, he's going to start "slow" with the local Ch. 22 and some webcasts, on 2016 people will demand to see the Summer Olympic games, since the Winter ones have like 2-3 Mexicans total (not much of an audience)

There is an application for a new DTV channel in Juarez.

http://transition.fcc.gov/fcc-bin/tvq?list=0&facid=197808

On another forum I go to they say that its for an educational channel. Hopefully it will be the Carlos Slim channel so we can watch the Olympics.

If I am correct in what I found on the Web. The Mexican Government has not yet given out the two new TV Networks.

Elias Ayub told the Mexican newspaper Reforma that the deal gives America Movil the possibility of re-selling the rights in Latin America and of broadcasting the games on a new television channel in Mexico if Slim's Telmex company gets the rights to it once a new telecommunications reform is signed into law.
