XHX-TDT is the television call sign for the Televisa television station on virtual channel 2.1 in both Monterrey, Nuevo León and Saltillo, Coahuila. The station carries the Las Estrellas network.

History[edit]

The first television station in Monterrey, XHNL-TV, came to air on channel 10 September 1, 1955, with a presidential report from President Adolfo Ruiz Cortines.[1] XHNL broadcast from studios in two rooms of the Hotel El Mirador and a transmitter on Cerro del Topo Chico and carried a wide variety of films and TV series on film. Not long after it started, it raised its power and its antenna height and changed its callsign to XHX-TV. In 1958, the opening of Televicentro de Monterrey allowed for local program production to begin.

The station became a Las Estrellas transmitter in 1985.
