The Paramount channel is on a different channel number depending on your service provider and where you live.

That makes it difficult to watch Yellowstone and figure out what’s happening to the Duttons in 1883 or 1923.

We wanted to make things easier so we researched which channels the Paramount channel is on by service provider and location.

Read on to find out.

Directv Paramount Channel

Channel 241 is the right channel to watch the Paramount Channel on DirecTV.

Directv is the best service provider for making it easy for you to find the right channel number.  Each channel has a standard channel number throughout the country, even broadcast channels.

The only issue is that you need to memorize the right channel number which can be annoying.

We’re happy to serve as a collective memory and let you know what the right channel is.

Check out the Directv Paramount channels below by city.  They’re all on Channel 241.

The Paramount Channel on Dish Network

It’s shocking but Dish has the same channel number for the Paramount Channel as Directv.

241 is the right channel for Dish Network customers to watch Paramount.

Paramount is a newer channel – rebranding from Spike TV.  They were able to get some standardization unlike older channels because they relaunched relatively recently.

Satellite providers make finding channels a lot easier than cable providers.

For most cable providers, channels are on different and multiple channels depending on where you live.  For satellite TV, since they beam one signal – they’re able to standardize the channel sets.

Because Dish and DirecTV are the same, there’s really no need to put down the full city channel list for Dish.

It’s going to be the same as Directv.

What Channel is the Paramount Channel on Spectrum

The Paramount Channel on Spectrum is generally on two channels on your TV but in different places depending on where you live.

For example, the right channels in Los Angeles are channels 45 and 116 and 13 and 27 in Columbus.

While there’s some common channel grouping by state, there’s no set list that we can give you the rules for.

It really just looks like they were playing Tetris with the channels where they have a footprint.

We’ve researched the major cities where Spectrum has operations in and have provided you with a list of where you can find the right channel numbers for Paramount below.

Where Can I Watch Paramount On Xfinity

Xfinity is even more complicated for finding the right channel number for Paramount than Spectrum.

That’s because there’s sometimes 3+ channels and the channels are further out generally on channel 50+.

The reason why there’s multiple channels is that one is the HD channel and the other is the SD channel.

There’s only this distinction when your TV is very old and hasn’t been graded.

The lowered numbered channel should have the same picture quality but if you’re having trouble with that channel, go to the further out one.
