Canal Once (Channel Eleven; formerly Once TV México), is a Mexican educational broadcast television network owned by Instituto Politecnico Nacional. The network's flagship station is XEIPN channel 11 in Mexico City. It broadcasts across Mexico through local television affiliates, cable television, and free-to-air satellite. The network is also available in the United States via satellite from DirecTV and also various cable outlets on "Latino" or "Spanish" tiers. Most of its programs are also webcast through the Internet, though its programming is not the same as the actual aerial or satellite signal.


The network began broadcasting on March 2, 1959, when its flagship station became the first non-profit educational and cultural television station in Mexico, owned and operated by a Mexican institution of higher education.[1] The television channel was conceived by Alejo Peralta y Díaz, Director of the National Polytechnic Institute (1956–1959), and supported by Eugenio Méndez Docurro, Director of the National Polytechnic Institute (1959–1962), Walter Cross Buchanan, Secretary of Communications and Transportation, and Jaime Torres Bodet, Secretary of Public Education.[1][2] Its first broadcast was a mathematics class transmitted from a small television studio located at the Casco de Santo Tomás, in the northern part of Mexico City.[1] In 2013, Once TV México returned to its original name of Canal Once as part of a branding refresh.[3]
