Data effective as of publish date. Offers and availability may vary by location and are subject to change.

Optimum’s channel lineup has 340+ channels, including local network affiliates, basic cable staples, and popular favorites. The channels come in four packages—Core TV ($74.99 a month, 210+ channels), Value TV* ($79.99 a month, 225+ channels), Select TV ($89.99 a month, 290+ channels), and Premier ($124.99 a month, 340+ channels).

Select TV and Premier TV even include some free premium channels. And you can bundle all Optimum cable TV packages with Optimum internet service.

The table below shows Optimum’s available channels and the packages containing them. “Optional” means the channel is available as an add-on for an additional monthly fee.

(*Note: we don’t include channels for Value TV in our table because Optimum.com doesn’t list them. We’ll update this guide as soon as that information becomes available. For now, it’s probably safe to assume that Value TV has all of the channels listed under Core TV—plus 15 mystery networks. We hope you like surprises.)

What channels are in Optimum’s Value TV?

At this writing, Optimum.com doesn’t show a channel lineup for Value TV ($79.99 a month, 225+ channels). It’s safe to assume, though, that it has all the same channels in Core TV ($74.99 a month, 210+ channels). You can click this link to see those channels—and we’ll update this guide as soon as Optimum publishes a channel lineup for Value TV.

What channel is CW on Optimum?

Optimum channel numbers vary according to where you live. To see the channel number for the CW where you live, find the Optimum channel list for your area. Heads-up, though: these channel lineups are from October 2020, and Optimum recently overhauled its TV packages. So you might see channels that Optimum no longer offers. The CW, however, is not one of them.

What channel is ESPN on Optimum?

ESPN will have a different channel number depending on which Optimum service area you’re in. Fortunately, you can see the Optimum channel list for your area. Note, however, that these channel lineups are from October 2020, and Optimum recently changed its TV packages. ESPN is a popular channel, so it’s probably not going anywhere—but you might also see other channels that Optimum no longer offers.

What channel is FS1 on Optimum?

The channel number for FS1 (FOX Sports 1) will change depending on where you live. But you can see your area’s channel number for FS1 on this Optimum channel list. It’s important to note, though, that these channel lists are from October 2020. Since Optimum recently renovated its TV packages, you might see channels that Optimum no longer offers—but the FS1 channel number should be the same.

What channel is HBO on Optimum?

HBO’s channel number on Optimum is gonna be different in different Optimum service areas. But you can see channel numbers for your area on this Optimum channel list. It’s dated October 2020, and Optimum has made major changes to its TV packages since then. But the channel number for HBO should be the same. The only thing you should watch out for are channels that Optimum dropped. Our guide above will have the most current information.

What channel is NBC on Optimum?

NBC’s channel number will be different in each of Optimum’s service areas. But you can see channel numbers for your area on this Optimum channel list. A quick caveat, before you check: this channel list is from October 2020, and Optimum’s channel lineups changed recently. But the channel number for NBC shouldn’t be different. For current Optimum channels and packages, use the updated table in our guide (above).
