XEW-TV (Channel 2 analog and Channel 48 digital HDTV) is a television station in Mexico. XEW-TV is one of the cornerstone stations of Televisa, with affiliate stations all over Mexico. It is also transmitted throughout Central and South America on satellite, as well as in Europe, Australia, and New Zealand; many of the programs of "El Canal de las Estrellas" are seen in the United States on Univision, Telefutura, and Galavisión.

XEW-TV is one of Televisa's oldest stations, founded in 1951 as part of Telesistema Mexicano.

Among the programs featured on "El Canal de las Estrellas" are "En Familia Con Chabelo" ("In Family with Chabelo"), "Hoy" (Today), "Alborada", "Rebelde" (Rebel), "100 Mexicanos Dijeron" ("100 Mexicans Said"; the Mexican version of "Family Feud"), "Vas o no Vas", the Mexican version of "Deal or No Deal", and "CV Directo" (CV Direct). They also air the Mexican version of a cross between USA's People's Choice Awards and the Emmy Awards called "Premios TV y Novelas", sponsored by the Televisa-owned magazine of the same name.

This HD channel is criticized for its practice of airing a significant amount of 4:3 standard definition content stretched to 16:9 that some viewers have nicknamed Stretch-o-Vision.
