XHTAM-TDT, virtual channel 17 (UHF digital channel 28), is a television station located in Matamoros, Tamaulipas, whose over-the-air signal also covers the Rio Grande Valley across the international border in the United States. The station is owned by the Grupo Televisa; it is the second affiliate of Las Estrellas in the Rio Grande Valley, XERV-TDT being the other.


The station originally signed on for the first time on September 4, 1994 as XHFOX-TV (changed from the original XHRTA-TV), broadcasting programming from the Fox network for Texas' Rio Grande Valley; prior to XHFOX's sign-on, RGV viewers received their Fox programs on cable via the national Foxnet service. In 2002, XHFOX disaffiliated from Fox and became XHTAM-TV, largely rebroadcasting programming from Las Estrellas. The Fox affiliation was carried over to XHRIO-TV from 2005-2012; Fox programming today can be seen on KFXV-LD.
