What channel the CW is on your Spectrum TV will vary depending on where you live.

This is the legacy of the lack of standardization during the growth of the pay-tv industry in the United States.  Since the CW was a broadcast vs a cable channel, it will be in the first 20 channels of your TV.

Are you excited to watch Walker or Walker Independence? Those shows are usually on Thursday from 8-10 pm.

We’ve done the work to show you what channel the CW is on Spectrum for the biggest metro areas that Spectrum operates in.

Tired of paying Spectrum $100+ a month for crummy TV service and ever-increasing broadcast fees?

Check out Fubo to save up to $60 a month.

You’ll also get 50 more channels than the standard Spectrum TV package.  These include great channels like GAC and the CBS Sports Network.
