Since Yesterday XEPM ch 2-1 is in HD. They stopped doing the Stretch-o-Vision and are showing 4:3 content with blue sidebars that say TuCanal. Today they showed Friday's Novelas and the 2 o Clock news in HD.

Finally, I think the last one, it's a bid odd being a subsidiary of Televisa, the richest of the 2 networks..

I guess the HD cameras finally arrived?

New Networks for 2015 ?

I thought I heard that for 2015 there was to be 2 new networks (public tv ?). Anybody have any details of what they are and when they'll be here in Tijuana ?

The channels are currently in the bidding process and we'll know which of the three bidders will win on March 19.

Frequencies have been allotted for these channels already (123 per channel times two nationwide), but it will likely take years for transmitter and network buildout. I'd imagine Tijuana will be among the earlier buildouts.

——

As an aside, some other items:

> Analog shutoff: Reynosa-Matamoros and Nuevo Laredo, scheduled for the 14th. This is the first under the new TDT policy and related procedures.

> New stations: More and more each week. Televisa and Azteca are working at breakneck pace to bring transmitters online across the country. Recent Televisa sign-ons include Guaymas, Son., Mazatlán, Tepic, and Zamora, Mich. Azteca is on now in Durango, Cd. del Carmen, Camp., and Aguascalientes. In Colima and Oaxaca both put on transmitters in the last two months.

Yesterday was the Analog Shutdown in Reynosa, Matamoros, and Nuevo Ladero.

Here is a video of the the analog Shutdown at XHAB.


The analog shutdown for Ciudad Juarez and Monterrey that was scheduled for November 26, 2014 was cancelled. The new date is December 31, 2015 for all of Mexico. They already started giving away the 24 inch HDTVs in Juarez.

The Mexican government decided that the analog shutdown will be July 14, 2015 for Tecate, BC, and Ciudad Juarez, CH.

Hopefully some of the Juarez Digital Channels will increase their power levels, because sometimes I have trouble receiving XEPM 2-1, XHJUB 56-1, and XHIJ 44-1. Also when there is a lot of wind 32-1 XHJCI pauses.

Some updates from the Arizona/Sonora border:

In Agua Prieta, XHAPS is broadcasting Telemax HD on RF 22, virtual 12.1, and is no longer putting out an analog signal on channel 12. XHAPT 17 is still broadcasting Canal de las Estrellas in analog, observed at about 6:15 pm MST. Analog shutoff is December 11, so XHAPT must be digital by next month - likely on RF channel 17, its final digital assignment, rather than on its interim digital assignment, channel 39.

In Naco, XHNAC has Telemax HD on RF 33, virtual 7.1; analog XHNAC was off the air. It is the town's only TV station, so analog shutoff has already come to Naco.

In Cananea, XHCAN has Azteca 7 HD on RF 25, virtual 4.1. No analog signal was detected. XHCCS and XHCNS also broadcast in Cananea, but I was not able to pick up either station in either digital or analog format. I have picked up XHCNS in analog on channel 56 in the past. Analog shutoff is still scheduled for December 31.

In Nogales, XHFA has Azteca 13 HD on RF 15, virtual 2.1, XHNSS has Cadena Trés on RF 31, virtual 7.1, XHNOA has Azteca 7 HD on RF 24, virtual 22.1 and XHNOS has Canal de las Estrellas on RF 41, virtual 50.x. Each of the above stations, except for XHNSS, is also broadcasting an analog signal on its original channel. XHNON, the Canal 5 station, is broadcasting exclusively in analog on channel 38, observed at about 10:00 pm MST. Analog shutoff is still scheduled for December 31.
