Multimedios is a network of Spanish language television stations found throughout Mexico. The system is part of Grupo Multimedios. The flagship station of Multimedios is XHAW-TV located in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon. Programming features locally produced news, sports, children's shows and general mass appeal programming. Multimedios produces more than 20 hours of programming daily.

The company also has network affiliates in many cities, some of which produce local content. The networks spans most of northeastern Mexico, and the southern United States.

United States[edit]

All American Multimedios affiliates are owned and operated by other broadcasters, due to FCC regulations regarding foreign ownership of radio and TV stations. As of early 2007, Multimedios is no longer leasing stations from Mako Communications. The American version of the network feed features American direct response advertising and public service announcements laid over the main Monterrey feed, along with some programming substitutions (mainly Monterrey-specific local shows and paid programming for second runs of the network's main shows), such as a repeat of Milenio's 10 p.m. newscast overnights.
