XHAW-TDT, virtual channel 6 (UHF digital channel 25), is a television station in Monterrey, Nuevo León, Mexico. Owned by Grupo Multimedios, it serves as the flagship station for the Multimedios Televisión network.

Digital services[edit]

XHAW and sister station XHSAW broadcast in HDTV; XHSAW formerly shared virtual channel 12. XHSAW broadcasts on channels 12.1 through 12.4; XHAW broadcasts channels 6.1 and 6.2. 6.1 and 6.2 are the only channels available in Saltillo and Guadalupe/Juárez/Cadereyta, as there is no shadow XHSAW there. Even though XHAW broadcast on analog channel 11 in Saltillo, it used virtual channel 12 there even prior to 2016. On February 24, 2018 (the station's 50th anniversary date), the station began to use the channel 6 virtual channel along with most other Multimedios stations as part of the network's national expansion.

XHAW Saltillo broadcast on physical channel 51 because channel 25 was in use by analog XHSTC-TV there. An application has been filed to relocate it to channel 25.

The 6.2 subchannel, Multimedios Coahuila, carries programming aimed at Coahuila viewers, primarily from XHOAH in Torreón.

The station's digital signal is multiplexed:

Channel Video Aspect PSIP Short Name Programming

6.2 480i Multimedios Coahuila

On September 24, 2015, XHAW shut off its analog signals, both in Monterrey and Saltillo; its digital signals remained.[2]
