Optimum TV channel numbers

Optimum channel numbers vary by location (the cable TV provider’s service area encompasses 40+ different areas). If you want to dig deeper for that information, and see ongoing notation about changes to Optimum channel lineups, check out your area’s lineup on Optimum’s website.

Optimum TV add-on packages

If you want to add premium channels to your Optimum TV package, here’s what you can choose from:

Note: Seven STARZENCORE channels already come in Optimum Select, so maybe choose one of the other three add-ons. Also, Optimum’s Premier package ($125.00 a month, 420+ channels) already has Max, Paramount+ with SHOWTIME, STARZ, and STARZENCORE—plus dozens more channels—for only $20 more per month than Optimum Select. Those add-ons alone cost a combined $47.96 monthly, so that’s a 60% discount.

Optimum TV channel packages

Besides those premium add-ons, Optimum also has these channel-package add-ons for more ways to customize your TV package.

  • Español TV ($15/mo.)
  • Family Package ($10/mo.)
  • Movie Package ($10/mo.)
  • Sports & Info Package ($15/mo.)
  • Sports Plus Package ($5/mo.)
