XHY-TDT is a television station in Mérida, Yucatán, Mexico. XHY is a local affiliate to Televisa and primarily transmits programs from its Gala TV network and FOROtv along with local programs under the name SIPSE Televisión.


XHY received its concession on January 29, 1963, and came to air just two days later. Broadcasting on channel 3, XHY was southeastern Mexico's first television station, jointly owned by Emilio Azcárraga Vidaurreta of Telesistema Mexicano and Andrés García Lavín, the owner of SIPSE.

In 1994, XHY moved from channel 3 to channel 2 in order to allow Televisa to add a station in Mérida, XHMEN-TV with the Canal 5 network. It now uses virtual channel 9 as a result of the virtual channel standardization of 2016.

Between December 2013 and January 2017, XHY branded as Gala TV Mérida. It returned to branding as SIPSE Televisión at the start of February 2017.
