Mexico’s US border cities of Mexical, Monterrey, Ciudad Juarez and Reynosa, will not see their analogue TV signals switched off this year. Mexico’s government says that it doesn’t have the resources to convert the border regions to digital TV, and says that it still has to find $130 million – $150million to make the necessary changes.

The Radio & TV unit head of Cofitel, Mexico’s broadcasting regulator, Fernando Borjon, says the city of Tijuana will switch off its analogue TV signals on May 28th as planned.
