What Channel Is ABC On DirecTV?
by Mark Chen | Updated 2/10/23
DirecTV has a fixed channel schedule for ABC and other TV stations. You can always find ABC on DIRECTV channels 396 and 397 on your TV guide.
However, there’s usually a lowered numbered channel that’s easier to get to. You might have memorized it but if you have better things to remember or if you moved, we did the research for you and listed below all the channels you can watch ABC on Directv in the US.
It’s a public service for us so you can watch more Abbott Elementary or ABC News with David Muir.
