After receiving its permit on October 23, 1978, XHGV-TV channel 4 signed on January 6, 1980 with a formal inauguration by President José López Portillo. It was operated by the Secretariat of Education and Culture and was the first noncommercial regional television station in the country. It was known from the start as Canal 4 Más, owing to the analog station's plus offset. Initial programming focused on educational, informational and entertainment programs. The new station boasted a transmitter on Cerro de las Lajas and studios on Cerro de la Galaxia in the state capital of Xalapa.
It is the sister to the Radiomás state radio network, which was created in 2000.
