Mexico

All of these stations are owned and operated by Grupo Multimedios unless noted otherwise.

Two local stations also carry Multimedios programming: XHSDD-TV in Sabinas, Coahuila and XHPNW-TV in Piedras Negras, Coahuila.

The network is also available nationwide through providers such as SKY México/VeTV and Izzi/Cablevisión.

United States

All American Multimedios affiliates are owned and operated by other broadcasters, due to FCC regulations regarding foreign ownership of radio and TV stations. The network leased stations from Mako Communications until early 2007.

The American version of the network feed features American direct response advertising and public service announcements laid over the main Monterrey feed, along with some programming substitutions (mainly Monterrey-specific local shows and paid programming for second runs of the network's main shows), such as a repeat of Milenio's 10 p.m. newscast overnights. The main Monterrey feed is available to all viewers, including in the United States, streaming through the network's website and its iOS App Store and Google Play apps, though all other Mexican local feeds are restricted to their local market.

Cable availability

Multimedios is available across the United States on many cable and IPTV systems, including Time Warner Cable, Comcast, Charter, AT&T U-Verse, Verizon FiOS and Grande Communications. It is carried in both standard definition and high definition versions.
