What Channel Is ABC On Dish

Finding the right channel for ABC on Dish is about the same level of difficulty as it is for cable providers like Cox and Xfinity.

That’s because there’s no standardized channel for broadcast channels on Dish like there is for the other cable networks on your TV.

Dish just took the channels that were in the area when they started out.

What we know as ABC used to be separate local broadcast stations before they merged and shared programming.

There’s usually only one or two channels where you can watch ABC on Dish.  The only exception is Tampa where there are 4 channels with funny channels like Channel 5150.

Make it easier for yourself by finding your channel on a city basis with the list below.
