Jalisco TV, virtual channel 17, is the public television network in the Mexican state of Jalisco, operated by the Sistema Jalisciense de Radio y Televisión and broadcasting on transmitters in Guadalajara, Ciudad Guzmán and Puerto Vallarta. Its programming is primarily cultural and educational content.

The Jalisco System of Radio and Television is an organism that belongs to the Executive power of the State of Jalisco, it is in charge of the diffusion of social expressions, arts, sciences and culture through the cultural Radio and Television stations of the Jalisco State Government. It promotes traditions, human values ​​, and cultural, local, national and international manifestations, as well as information of general interest to Jaliscienses.

History

The first governor of the state of Jalisco to consider the possibility of opening a state-owned television station was Juan Gil Preciado in 1960. However, plans did not start to actually build one until 30 years later.

On January 16, 1991, XHGJG-TV on analog channel 7 took to the air under the Department of Cultural Broadcasters, taking the institutional name Sistema Jalisciense de Radio, Televisión y Cinematografía (Jalisco System of Radio, Television, and Film). The original transmitter and facilities were housed on the 10th floor of the Education Tower along with a 6,000-watt transmitter. That night it broadcast its first news program, the newscast Actualidad Informativa, which had as its first top story the beginning of Operation Desert Storm. Not long after, it was moved from the state Secretariat of Education and Culture to the Secretariat of Culture upon its separation, taking the name Sistema Jalisciense de Radio y Televisión and losing the film component. At this time the station only broadcasts several hours of programming per day in the evening, slowly expanding to additional timeslots.

An earthquake in June 1994 in Guadalajara forced the state's Guadalajara radio stations, XEJB-AM and XEJB-FM, to move to the Casa de la Cultura Jalisciense. On October 11, 1995, XHGJG joined them, as another earthquake two days prior caused serious damage to the Education Tower and the station had to relocate. In the late 1990s, the transmitters of all three stations were moved to Cerro del Cuatro, home of other Guadalajara radio and TV station transmitters, further increasing the stations' coverage.

In September 1999, the state government received a permit to sign on the first rebroadcaster of XHGJG, low-powered XHGZG-TV channel 12 in Ciudad Guzmán with a transmitter on Cerro de la Escalera. This began a period of growth for the station, which later moved to the Edificio México in Guadalajara and signed on a third transmitter, XHGPV-TDT on channel 13 in Puerto Vallarta. The network became known as C7, a shortening of "Canal 7", a brand later extended to the state's radio stations.

The Guadalajara station began digital multicasting in November 2014 with four subchannels: news-oriented C7 Noticias, cultural C7 Cultura, C7 Congreso covering the activities of the Legislature of Jalisco, and C7 Ley with coverage of the state judicial system. The first two appeared in November 2014. The last two were discontinued soon after their appearance.

On July 22, 2019, the state network was relaunched under the name Jalisco TV.
