Acapulco’s Media - Newspapers, Radio and Television

As a town of nearly one million inhabitants, Acapulco enjoys a range of modern media. The main Mexican television networks operate repeater stations in Acapulco. Thus, of the 13 channels available in Acapulco, only one is local. The local cable provider, Cablemás, offers a complete selection of channels, including the local station, all national Mexican networks, and international broadcasts like ESPN. Most hotels and condominiums have cable hookups. Others may have their own satellite TV arrangements, which will also provide a variety of selections, but not the local Acapulco station. In the VHF/UHF broadcast band, TV Azteca (Grupo Salinas), Televisa, Radio Formula and Radio y Televisión de Guerrero (RTG) are all represented. The radio stations are dominated by Grupo Acir, which operates several, and Radio Formula, which operates a couple.
