What Channel is Oprah Winfrey Network OWN On?


After posting an article a couple of days ago about Dr Oz on Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN), we have received a large response from people who want to know what channel is the Oprah Winfrey Network or OWN going to be on starting January 1, 2011? The short answer is that it depends on your zip code and your TV service provider (Cablevision, Time Warner Cable, Verizon FiOS, DIRECTV, DISH Network, etc.). I will do my best to help everyone find the channel for their zip code if you leave a comment below, but I have also put together a list for some of the big cities in America including New York City, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Sacramento, San Diego, San Jose, Dallas, Houston, Austin, Miami, Chicago, Philadelphia, Columbus, Atlanta, Raleigh, Washington DC, Minneapolis, Phoenix, Seattle, Portland, Denver, St Louis and Indianapolis. I will update the list based on the zip codes people post in the comment section below!  Several stations will be the same across all cities and states.  For example, the OWN Oprah Winfrey Network Channel on DIRECTV is channel 279, on DISH Network is channel 189 and on AT&T U-verse is channel 256.

  1. Janie Brott says

    I live in Gainesville VA. Zip 20155. My cable is through Comcase.
    On what station will I find OWN – Oprah’s new network?

  2. says

    Hi Janie! Looks like Gainesville Comcast will not have the OWN channel 🙁 … the only companies that will carry OWN in your area look like Verizon FiOS on channel 161 & 1625, DIRECTV on 279 and DISH Network on 189. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news 🙁

  32. fettman24 says

    Channel 189 with DISH Network. Great channel and it can be offered to you at a cheaper price with DISH. As an employee I’m aware that they offer the lowest every day price in the industry, highly recommended over cable providers in price and customer satisfaction.

  33. John says

    I think the OWN Chaneel sucks who wants to hear form those old wind bags Dr. laura & Dr. phil and old movie re-runs we can see those on AMC
    Bring back the Medical health Channel

  34. Bryon says

    The launch of OWN has made a lot of people happy that there is programming out there with a fresh approach to “positive” broadcasting. I watch OWN here in Denver on channel 189 but since I work at DISH I found out today that OWN HD will be launching on Thursday! That’s before Comcast and Direct TV both. I’m glad DISH could partner with Oprah to make an investment in her channel because everyone I know is rooting for her.

  51. Korie says

    I live in Miami, FL and I have U-Verse
    OWN is not on 256, the correct channel is 170

  52. Helen says

    OWN was just removed from the Entertainment package of directv last month. I was getting it and recording from it daily and then suddenly I was getting blank recordings. I received no warning that they were doing this. It seems when a channel becomes popular they remove it and then want you to upgrade to pay for a more expensive package. It’s not the first time and won’t be the last.

  53. Fran Batt says
