XHCNL-TDT is a Televisa owned and operated television station in Monterrey, Nuevo León, broadcasting on virtual channel 34. Their signal is also available on SKY Mexico satellite system, on channel 142.


XHCNL came to air in the late 1980s as an oddity in a large concession primarily awarded to expand Televisa's reach in rural areas. In the mid-1990s, it raised its power and became known as "Tu Objetivo Visual", carrying some local programs. In 2006, a swap between XEFB and XHCNL resulted in XHCNL becoming Televisa Monterrey (or MTY Televisión), the local station for Monterrey with news and local productions. It also picked up XEFB's translator in Saltillo, Coahuila.

On October 27, 2016, the change was reversed, with local programs moving to XEFB (now on virtual channel 4) and Teleactiva moving to channel 34.

Digital television[edit]

On September 24, 2015, XHCNL shut off its analog signal; its digital signal on UHF channel 48 remained.[2]

One XHCNL relayer exists, on Cerro El Mirador with one kilowatt of effective radiated power. It provides service to Colonia Country, which is shielded from the Cerro de la Silla transmitter site.[3]
