XEFB-TDT is a television station located in Monterrey, Nuevo León, Mexico. It is known as Televisa Monterrey and carries Televisa's local programs for Monterrey, including local news, sports and entertainment programming.


XEFB signed on in 1958 on channel 3. The station was the first local station in Monterrey (joining XHX-TV channel 10, its sister started in 1955) and boasted the first Ampex video tape equipment in Mexico. It converted to color in 1970.[2]

The station moved to channel 2 in 1984 to allow XHWX, a new Imevisión station, to sign on the air.

In 2005, most of XEFB's local programming and focus moved to XHCNL channel 34. It returned in 2016 as part of XEFB's move to virtual channel 4.

Digital television[edit]

XEFB has maintained a repeater in Saltillo, Coahuila, for decades. From 2005 to 2016, it relayed XHCNL instead of XEFB. This repeater broadcasts from Saltillo with 43 kW of effective radiated power.[3]

On September 24, 2015, XEFB shut off its analog signal; its digital signal on UHF channel 45 remained.[4] In addition, a repeater was built on Cerro El Mirador, in order to continue service to certain portions of Monterrey that cannot receive Televisa' signals from Cerro de la Silla.[5]
