XHBR-TDT is a Televisa television station in Nuevo Laredo, Tamaulipas, Mexico. The station carries Televisa's local programming in Nuevo Laredo.


XHBR received its concession on March 18, 1968 and came to air that October, broadcasting on analog channel 11. It was owned by Ramona Esparza González for 20 years until she transferred the station to Televisa subsidiary Televisión de Lerma, S.A., on July 19, 1988. Esparza González had bought XEFE-TV two years earlier. Televisa raised XHBR's effective radiated power from 3.5 to 325 kilowatts. In 2001, Televisión de Lerma was merged into Televimex.

By the 2000s, XHBR was the local outlet of the Canal de las Estrellas network, a role now held by sister XHLAR-TDT. It was among the first stations in Mexico to broadcast in digital television.
