While the Food Network is usually on Channel 162 for Spectrum customers, there’s usually a lowered numbered channel you can watch and 162 is the wrong channel for some big cities.

The Food Network is one of our favorite cable channels and we want people to get to watching Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives as soon as possible.

That’s why we did the research for you to figure out what channels you can watch the Food Network if you’re with Spectrum.
