Gala TV is a Mexican television network owned by Televisa.[1] Originating at XEQ-TV in Mexico City, the network is distributed throughout Mexico through affiliates. In April 2013, the network changed its name, from Galavisión.[2]


Logo utilized from 2003 until April 2013, when Galavisión was re-branded as "Gala TV"

Galavisión was founded on September 1, 1968, as Televisión Independiente de Mexico (TIM). TIM later merged with Telesistema Mexicano becoming Televisión Vía Satélite better known as Televisa. In April 2013 Galavisión changed its name to Gala TV.


The Gala TV schedule features mainly reruns of major Mexican telenovelas, reruns of Televisa series, soccer and lucha libre. 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]

Gala TV is not nominally a national network. 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 Gala TV programming while only inserting local advertising. Others also carry FOROtv, Televisa Regional, and/or local programs.

Two stations do not carry Gala TV programming live. XHLGG-TDT is owned by Multimedios Televisión and only carries Gala TV in the afternoon and evening hours, while XHBJ-TDT carries all programs on a two-hour delay to adjust for time zone differences.

There are also several Gala TV feeds multiplexed on Canal 5 transmitters, which carry Gala TV programming full-time and broadcast as subchannel 5.2.
