XHJUB-TDT (physical channel 33, virtual channel 56) is a Ciudad Juárez television station that is owned and operated by Televisa. The station carries the Canal 5 network.


1991-2007: As Televisa's local TV station for Juárez[edit]

The concession for XHJUB-TV was originally awarded on November 13, 1989, to Radiotelevisión del Rio Bravo, S.A. de C.V. The original concession specified that the station would operate on channel 62;[2] however, this was changed before the station's sign-on to put XHJUB on channel 56.

When XHJUB signed on it was made into Televisa's local independent station for the Ciudad Juárez market. XEPM-TV became a relayer of the Canal de las Estrellas network, and channel 56 picked up its local newscasts and programming, competing against Televisa-affiliated independent XEJ-TV and rival then-Telemundo outlet XHIJ-TV. The local newscast went by several names including Notivisa and Noticiero 56.

Between 1991 and the launch of XHJCI-TV in 1994, the station also aired Canal 5 programming.

2007-present: Canal 5 relayer[edit]

On July 30, 2007, Televisa Juárez announced that their stations would exchange programs. XHJCI became the Canal de las Estrellas outlet, XHJUB took on Canal 5, and XEPM became the local station for Televisa in the market.

As the Canal 5 station, XHJUB assumed virtual channel 5 on October 25, 2016. XEJ, the traditional channel 5 in Juárez, moved its virtual channel to its physical channel of 50.

Digital Transition[edit]

XHJUB-TDT began broadcasting in digital on October 12, 2012, two years after receiving initial approval. The digital signal remained after Juárez converted to digital on July 14, 2015.
