XHAS-TDT is the Telemundo-affiliated television station for the San Diego–Tijuana international metropolitan area. Licensed to Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico, it broadcasts a high definition digital signal on UHF channel 34 (virtual channel 33.1 via PSIP) from a transmitter on Tijuana's Mount San Antonio. Operated by Entravision Communications Corporation under a time brokerage agreement (with the station's license and transmitter owned by a Mexican company), it is sister to MyNetworkTV affiliate XHDTV-TDT, Univision affiliate KBNT-CD and Telefutura affiliate KDTF-LD. All four stations share studios on Ruffin Road in the Kearny Mesa section of San Diego, California, United States.

Analog-to-digital transition[edit]

While the United States completed its transition to full-power digital television on June 12, 2009, Mexico is making the transition to digital-only television broadcasts over several years in order from the largest population centers to the smallest, the country's digital television transition expected to be completed by 2014. XHAS-TV discontinued its analog signal on May 28, 2013, as all television stations in the Tijuana metropolitan area were required to go all-digital on that date.[1]


The station broadcasts local newscasts on weeknights at 6 and 11 p.m. While it competes with its Univision sister station KBNT-CD for news at the same time, as they share the studio in Entravision's building, XHAS focuses their news more on the issues affecting Tijuana (competing against locally-programmed XEWT-TDT), while KBNT-CD focuses more on San Diego.
