XHSAW-TDT is a television station in Sabinas Hidalgo and Monterrey, Nuevo León, Mexico. It is owned by Multimedios Televisión and broadcasts on physical channel 21.

History[edit]

XHSAW received its concession on August 1, 1994. The original concessionaire was Multimedios head Francisco Antonio González Sánchez.

Digital television[edit]

The station's digital signal is multiplexed:

Channel Video Aspect PSIP Short Name Programming
12.1 1080i 16:9 XHSAW xMD
12.2 480i Teleritmo
12.3 CV Shopping
12.4 MVS TV

On September 24, 2015, XHSAW shut off its analog signal; its digital signal on UHF channel 21 remained.[2] Until 2016, XHSAW shared major virtual channel 12 with XHAW-TDT. It used channel 13 between 2017 and 2018, when it moved back to 12 after Multimedios's other stations changed to channel 6.

On March 4, 2020, the IFT authorized the removal of Milenio TV in favor of sports channel xMD, now as the main HD subchannel, with Teleritmo moving to subchannel 2; the change is part of a move that also saw Milenio TV move to XHAW proper.[3]
