Puebla TV (XHPUE-TDT channel 26 in Puebla) is the public television network of the Mexican state of Puebla. Covering a little over 40% of the state (by population), it offers educational, cultural and alternative programming; much is locally generated content intended to address the needs, expectations and lives of Pueblan society.[1]

The network has transmitters in Puebla City and Zacatlán.

History

XHPUE in 2003, preceded by four years by the Zacatlán transmitter, originally permitted in 1999 as XHPZL-TV. The original five-year permit expired in 2004, but XHPBZC-TDT 11 was not authorized as its replacement until 2017.

XHPUE was licensed for digital and analog transmissions on the same channel 26 in 2014; this made it one of the first two stations with such intermittent authorization, alongside XHMNL-TV in Monterrey. After several tests, it flash-cut to digital in March 2015.
