Una Voz con Todos (A Voice with All) is a national public television network of Mexico, operated by the Sistema Público de Radiodifusión del Estado Mexicano (SPR). It began operations in 2010 and is distributed via SPR's national digital transmitter network, as well as on all cable and satellite providers. It is based in Mexico City.

History

The Organismo Promotor de Medios Audiovisuales, or OPMA, was the predecessor to SPR. It was founded with the aim of extending the breadth and depth of public television in Mexico. Two national-level public television stations were already on the air — XEIPN-TV, established in 1959, and Canal 22, established as public/cultural in 1993 — but they were not available outside of Mexico City except through pay television and select programs carried by the public television stations in the various states, as well as Canal Once's few existing retransmitters. Outside of Mexico City, XEIPN had a national penetration of 28%, and XEIMT had 22% reach. Furthermore, in 2005, the teveunam network (not to be confused with XHUNAM-TDT)owned by the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) began its broadcast as a Pay TV-only channel.

On March 31, 2010, an official decree published in the Official Gazette of Mexico created OPMA.[1] OPMA created a new public television channel, Una Voz con Todos, to serve as its flagship programming source. 17 transmitters are on the air, and another 9 are under construction; these transmitters cover 56% of the Mexican population and have substantially boosted the over-the-air coverage of the various public television stations in the country.

The first four transmitters for the system began operations in 2010. The Mexico City transmitter, XHOPMA-TDT channel 30, launched on March 23, 2012.[2] With this new transmitter, the Canal 30 network launched. The name was changed in 2012 to reflect that outside of Mexico City, it was usually on other channel numbers.

Programming

Programming on Una Voz con Todos is largely of a cultural and educational nature with the aim of strengthening democratic values in Mexican society.

Sports

In January 2014, Una Voz con Todos acquired the rights to broadcast the 2014 Winter Olympics and Paralympics through a contract made between SEGOB and América Móvil.[3] Later that year SPR followed up by signing a deal with the same company to carry the 2014 Youth Summer Olympics.

Transmitters

All SPR transmitters carry the network as subchannel .1 or .2, depending on the station.
