Grupo Televisa moves forward with DTV transition

Mexican broadcaster Grupo Televisa has installed eight high-powered DTV transmitters to begin delivering DTV programming in and around Mexico City, Monterrey, Guadalajara and Tijuana in 2006.

Mexico formally adopted the ATSC standard in October 2004 following years of DTV testing. The Mexican government last year issued an 18-year deployment table that lays out specific DTV transition plans for both public and private broadcasters over six, three-year periods. The first three-year segment of this plan targets major cities, especially those closest to the U.S. border, with private broadcasters launching ahead of public broadcasters.

Grupo Televisa purchased Harris DiamondCD transmitters for the project. They were installed during the fourth quarter of last year.
