MegaCable carry CBS or ABC?

Hi. For the 1st time we’re getting cable (MegaCable). where we stay. Usually never watch it while I’m here, but I’d really like ti watch something on CBS (and maybe ABC). I found FOX, but not the other typical stations. Can someone let me know about NBC or ABC?

Thanks!

You will not find the Big 3 networks on Mexican cable.

We're on Megacable here in Col. Centro and we get:

---CNN International on Ch. 162 (repetitive, nauseating self-promotion hour after hour, but the only reliable English-language news station available here)
---FOX NEWS on Ch. 163....which I wouldn't watch if my mother was on.
---NBC on Ch. 177, but, for some reason, no sound
---ABC on Ch. 178, ditto re no sound
---CBC on Ch. 179, (that's the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, for those of you from the States).....again, no sound, and I don't think it's actually the CBC anyway, but more likely Global, or CTV, which are the Canadian networks more closely aligned, at least politically, with a FOX NEWS....but not nearly as blatantly ignorant.

Don't know about CBS.

Ah you get ABC, NBC but no sound? Got subtitles? However you get FOX - that would definitely be better without sound.
There are ways to watch US tv just like in your home in the States but it will cost money.

All 3 major networks are on Megacable. They are Seattle stations.

I stand corrected, didn't have the networks in the other 3 cities we have lived in - in Mexico.

Hunter is correct. I'm in La Ropa and get all of these channels with Megacable. They also have sound! You can visit their office and pick up a channel guide. I need to mention that you must have the basic plus plan and the box provided by them as of last April.

We got the box, we got the plan, but we didn't have sound on NBC ch. 177, ABC ch. 178 and CBC NEWS ch. 179.....however, I just played around with it, and found, on all three channels, that I get sound if I switch from stereo to mono. Who knew?

Megacable channel 179, which until yesterday said it was "CBC NEWS", is now KIRO 7, a CBS affiliate out of Seattle. The channel identifier still says "CBC NEWS", even though it has been "CITY TV", out of, I think, Toronto, and not the CBC, for the last month.

I would guess that is because of the programing package that you pay for in the States.

We do not have cable up here in Cerro DV, but we have a roku with DISH satellite and can get the same stations. We love watching the the local affiliate news and Seattle weather broadcasters.

no, got to streaming channels and news and weather get NewsOn it lists every state and what stations have news. Roku also has the national news out of NY plus there is a gang of individual news stations listed.
