XHJCI-TDT (physical channel 30, virtual channel 32) is a television station in Ciudad Juárez, owned by Televisa. It carries all of Televisa's local programming for Ciudad Juárez and is branded as tucanal (Your Channel).

History[edit]

Televisa Juárez obtained its third station in 1992, when Televisa was selected to continue its application for XHJCI-TV channel 32. After receiving its concession on September 21, 1994, channel 32 came to air with the Canal 5 network.

In 2005, XHJCI began carrying Las Estrellas programs as part of a shuffle of Televisa Juárez's stations.

In August 2015, XEPM and XHJCI swapped virtual channels and networks. XHJCI took on the virtual channel 2 and the local programming. XEPM's transmitter began carrying virtual channel 32 and Las Estrellas. The virtual channels were switched again in 2016.

Digital television[edit]

The station's digital channel is multiplexed:

Digital subchannels[edit]

DT Video Ratio Callsign Network Programming
32.1 1080i 16:9 XHJCI Televisa Regional Main XHJCI programming
32.2 480i 16:9 XHJCI FOROtv News and talk programs

Televisa was approved to add FOROtv to six stations, primarily regional outlets, in northern Mexico in January 2018.

Analog-to-digital conversion[edit]

Due to the Mexican analog-to-digital conversion mandate, XHJCI-TV shut down its analog signal on July 14, 2015, the date set for transition in Ciudad Juárez. Earlier in the year, XHJCI was authorized for a boost in digital ERP from 50 to 200 kW, matching Televisa's other Juárez stations.

On April 29, 2016, XHJCI was cleared to move from physical channel 41 to 30 in order to accomplish the repacking of television stations out of the 600 MHz band.[3] This change occurred in late October, when XHJCI moved back to virtual channel 32.
