XHJCI-TV (Channel 32) is the Ciudad Juárez television station that is owned and operated by Televisa. The station is an affiliate of Canal de las Estrellas.



In 1992, it was published in the "Diario Oficial de la Federación" ("Official Federation Daily"), that on December 16 of that year, "Televimex, S.A. de C.V." was allowed continuation of the licensing process to broadcast on UHF channel 32; on September 21, 1994, a 15 year grant of transmission was given. Thus, Televisa Juarez obtained its third television station (after XEPM and XHJUB) on the Juárez-El Paso border, repeating the signal of Mexico City's XHGC-TV Canal 5.


During this period, Televisa Juárez begins administration the three stations XEPM (1972), XHJUB (1991) and XHJCI (1994). The last one repeating the signal of Canal 5 from Central Mexico.
