It´s a waste of space and broadband sacrifice of the main ch. If it were for a different channel or programming, ok, it´s worth it. Don´t you think.

Yeah, seems to be a total waste of space. Anyhow, seems that the testing is complete and these channels are here to stay!

Since a few days ago i noticed that both Tv Azteca digital signals in Tijuana have the program guide info and, best of all, it indicates the programming in our local time zone (Pacific Time). Way to go Tv Azteca Tijuana.

I don´t know if you guys in the El Paso/Paso del Norte (Cd. Juarez) area can get their tv guide info of both digital signals.

Both TV Azteca channels from Juarez, also have the guide data,and it's also correct.

TV Azteca, specially "Azteca 13" has been doing nothing but SD lately, INCLUDING the latest World Cup match.. no wonder they are losing Vs. Televisa..

Novelas, news, shows, etc all on SD now..

I'd like to request a list of Digital TV stations in operation in Mexico. They will be added to the Canada & Mexico DTV topic index.

Thanks in advance.

XHAS-DT Ch 34 (33.1) Telemundo is now 1080i in Tijuaina.

post #579 of 692
XHAS telemundo is only using 11 M/S. I wonder if they have plans for the rest of the bandwidth.

Also, Azteca 28.1 and 29.1 have several sub-channels. I believe they are hi-tv channels broadcasting in MPEG4. Does anyone have a converter to view this?
post #580 of 692
Nice. We are still waiting in El Paso for Telemundo HD and Telefutura HD...

I hope with the new Digital TV laws coming, we also have "canal 5" in HD soon.
post #581 of 692
Thanks, I'll check them out.
post #582 of 692
The subchannels are: H264 - MPEG-4 AVC

XHJK-DT Ch 28 (28.1) TV Azteca 13 subchannels



XHTIT-DT 29 (29.1) TV Azteca 7 subchannels
post #583 of 692
I was able to watch those hi-tv signals with a hvr-950 usb tuner, fedora 12 linux, kaffeine player. The quality is not bad on a 19 in PC screen.
post #584 of 692
I'm using VLC media player to view the H264 subchannels. Here is their bandwidth in TSReader. Export htm files attached.

XHJK-DT Ch 28 (28.1) TV Azteca 13


XHTIT-DT Ch 29 (29.1) TV Azteca 7

All I've heard is that the President of Mexico wants to turn off the Analog signals by 2015. I don't know if it still has to go through Congress or COFETEL.

Local cable is announcing that they will go "digital" soon...

They say "better quality" but they don't mention HDTV at all..

Satellite we have 2 companies.. SKY, but HD package, for EACH TV is about $80 dls a month, so if you have 3 TVs you'll payg about $240 US dolars a month!!!!

How much you pay now for regular HDTV Cable/Sat in US? $49? max $99?
post #589 of 692
Yes $50/month for HD with taxes and fees on the low end. For all the Premium channels included with HD it can be $150/month with taxes and fees. If you add sports packages it can go to $300/month for HD.
post #590 of 692
Keep in mind this is for regular HD, if you add like HBO package it's about $30 dls each TV, "exclusive" sports? about US $500 for the season of each sport

It's a hybrid and is on here as a Mexican Transmitter. The station is licensed to Tecate, Baja California, Mexico; its studios are located in San Diego. The station is operated by Entravision Communications Corporation as a MyNetworkTV affiliate.

Thanks for the info. Hopefully I can pick up this station down here in Playas de Tijuana.

The HD bitrate is null for XHDTV, so the actual bitrate is 2.31 mbps.
