XHTV-TDT (channel 4 virtual channel 49 digital), founded in 1950 by Romulo O'Farril, is a flagship TV station of Televisa and FOROtv. Although FOROtv does not have any full-time affiliates, most Televisa local stations around the republic select some FOROtv programming for their broadcasting. FOROtv is available on various cable television companies and SKY México satellite service. It is the oldest TV station in Mexico and Latin America.[1]

On August 30, 2010 (sixty years after the channel was founded), the channel's name was changed to FOROtv (literally "Forum TV"), with most of Televisa's news programs moved here, such as Las Noticias por Adela (from XEQ), and with new news and talk programs being created. Prior to this, the channel, under the name of Canal de la Ciudad ("The City's Channel") broadcast programs targeted at the México City metro area, as well as reruns of American series and blocks of Mexican movies.

On December 17, 2015, XHTV and other television stations in Mexico City shut off their analog signals.
