XHCMO channel 3 is the flagship station of the Canal 3 educational network. Canal 3 is an educational and public television network owned and operated by the government of the State of Morelos in Cuernavaca. The station is managed by the Instituto Morelense de Radio y Televisión (IMRyT).

The station went on air on April 17, 1991[2] as the first state-run television station in Morelos, under the auspices of the then-Morelia System of Radio and Television. After 1995, when SMRTV was dissolved, the quality of its radio and television stations began to fade. The Canal 3 transmitter weakened with lack of maintenance, while equipment became outdated. In 2000, the former SMRTV stations were reorganized, but for political reasons the needed modernization of the radio and television stations did not happen. In 2010, SMRTV was reformed, and in 2013, it took on its current name of IMRyT.

In April 2014, XHCMO received approval to flash-cut to digital on channel 49, which will trigger a call sign change to XHCMO-TDT. Whereas the analog transmitter broadcast at a power of 10 kW, the digital transmitter is licensed for 40 kW of power.
