Channel 9, also known as Nu9ve (Nueve or "Nine"), previously named Galavisión (from 1990s until 2013) and Gala TV (from 2013 to 2018), is a Mexican television network owned by Televisa. The primary station and network namesake is XEQ-TDT (virtual channel 9) in Mexico City, though the network has coverage throughout Mexico on Televisa stations and some affiliates. Nu9ve offers a range of general entertainment programs.

The roots of Nu9ve go back to the foundation of Televisión Independiente de México, the first serious contender to Telesistema Mexicano. In 1973, the two companies merged to form Televisión Vía Satélite, better known as Televisa.

After years of broadcasting primarily cultural programs, channel 9 in Mexico City returned to commercial programming in the mid-1990s, under the name Galavisión. This Galavisión was unrelated to the American cable channel of the same name.

In April 2013, Galavisión changed its name to Gala TV.[1]

Gala TV programs were traditionally carried on a number of Televisa-affiliated local stations. In 2017, Televisa ended a significant number of these partnerships and began multiplexing Gala TV on various Canal 5 transmitters in larger markets.

On July 9, 2018, the network will change its name from Gala TV to Nu9ve, reflecting the fact that its Mexico City station XEQ-TDT and most of its retransmitters broadcast on virtual channel 9. The name change was also accompanied by a revamped program lineup.

The Nu9ve schedule features mainly reruns of major Mexican telenovelas, reruns of Televisa series, as well as soccer and lucha libre and old Mexican movies.[2] On March 18, 2008, it was announced that an agreement was made between Televisa and NBCUniversal that Galavisión would broadcast Telemundo programs on Galavisión as well as on selected channels of SKY México and Cablevision beginning in April 2008.[3]

As part of the Nu9ve relaunch, Televisa signed deals with Discovery and National Geographic to air their content.[4] The relaunch also included a new entertainment program, Intrusos, hosted by entertainment journalist Juan José Origel.[2]

Nu9ve is not nominally a national network; unlike Las Estrellas or Canal 5, it does not meet the national coverage threshold necessary to be considered one by the Federal Telecommunications Institute.

There is significant variance in the programming schedules of Gala TV and its stations, not seen with Las Estrellas or Canal 5.

Some stations are full-time repeaters, usually broadcasting on channel 9.1, clearing all Nu9ve programming while only inserting local advertising. Others also carry FOROtv, Televisa Regional, and/or local programs.

There are also several Nu9ve feeds multiplexed on (primarily) Canal 5 transmitters, which carry Nu9ve programming full-time and broadcast as subchannel 5.2. Some of these subchannels may also have local programming.[5]

Not all Mexican stations using virtual channel 9 are part of the Nu9ve network. Three noncommercial stations also have virtual channel 9 assigned, as does a Televisa station not part of the network.
