XEJ-TV

XEJ-TV is a broadcast television station in Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua, Mexico, providing Entertainment, News and Talk shows as XEJ-TV Canal 5. XEJ-TV broadcasts on local analog channel 5 and digital channel 50. XEJ-TV Canal 5 is owned and operated by Televisa Galavision, which airs general entertainment Spanish television series, as well as locally produced news and entertainment programs.

History

Founded by Pedro Meneses Hoyos on May 17, 1954, it was the first TV station in the state of Chihuahua, the first Spanish channel in the Juárez-El Paso-Las Cruces area, and the third Mexican TV station outside of Mexico City.

XEJ launched the careers of several music, film and TV personalities, including Tin Tan, Lorenzo de Monteclaro, Charro Avitia, and Alberto Aguilera (aka Adan Luna and/or Juan Gabriel).[citation needed] In the early days, the station broadcast many entertaining programs such as "El barco de la illusion", "Doctora Corazon", "Noches Rancheras", "La hora del aficionado", "Papa Quinito", "Niko Liko" (the clown).

XEJ broadcasts from its original studios, at Vicente Guerrero and Constitución streets. The station broadcasts Nu9ve programs, in addition to its own newscast (XEJ Noticias).

XEPM-TV was named for Pedro Meneses when it signed on in the 1960s, in acknowledgment of his role in establishing television in Juárez. The Meneses Hoyos family also owns another television station that is named for them, XHMH-TDT in Hidalgo del Parral.

Digital television

The digital signal was activated on June 1, 2012.[2] It remained after Juárez's digital transition took place on July 14, 2015, at which time analog channel 5 left the air.

In March 2018, in order to facilitate the repacking of TV services out of the 600 MHz bands (channels 38-51), XEJ was assigned channel 35 for continued digital operations. The frequency change took place on September 10, 2018.

Digital subchannels

XEJ-TDT2 (branded as TVA Televisión Alternativa) is a second digital subchannel of XEJ-TV, launched on June 2, 2012. It broadcasts in high definition and carries music videos 24 hours a day. The station does not have formal authorization from the IFT for this subchannel.

In October 2016, XEJ began carrying Gala TV in HD, simultaneous with its IFT-mandated change from virtual channel 5 to 50 (as virtual channel 5 was reserved nationally for the Canal 5 network).
