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.
