TVMÁS was established in January 1980 by the Secretaría de Educación y Cultura of Veracruz, after receiving its permit on October 23, 1978. XHGV, a landmark venture into television by state government, was conceived as a center for audiovisual production and educational/cultural broadcasting. Its mandate includes coverage of subjects such as security and civil defense, health and justice, food, economic development, protection of nature and the environment as well as the promotion of civic values within Veracruzan society.
It is the sister to the Radiomás state radio network.
TVMÁS (XHGV-TDT) is distributed statewide by multiple repeater stations located throughout Veracruz. Two digital stations signed on in 2014:
|XHGV-TDT||26||Las Lajas||100 kW|
|XHVCA-TDT||33||Cerro Azul||50 kW|
|XHVIM-TV||7 (TDT 22)||Ixhuatlan de Madero||51 W (650 W)|

|XHGVS-TV||13 (TDT 26)||San Andres Tuxtla||1.39 kW (1.25 kW)|
XHGV, XHVCA, XHGVC (analog 21) and XHZOT became digital-only in December 2015. The other stations were granted a one-year extension to remain in analog until 2016.
