What are ESPN channels on Comcast Xfinity?

Finding ESPN among the more than a hundred channels Xfinity TV offers can be difficult, especially since there is no exact channel where ESPN is always located. It may vary from region to region. First try these channels: 700, 701 or 1309, 1310. If ESPN is not on them, then move on to this article, and you will find a more detailed list for different regions.

You can use a special tool on the Xfinity website to check exactly where ESPN is in your specific location. You will need to enter your address there, and the system will show you which channels and numbers are available in your home.

What channels are the ESPN channels usually on in Xfinity TV?

Since Xfinity is available throughout the US, the location of some specific channels may differ depending on the region where you live. For example, ESPN may be located on different channels in the Western, Central, and Northeastern US. Most often, you can find ESPN on one of the channels listed below:

  • ESPN HD: 700 or 1309 channels

However, if the ESPN channel you want is not on any of them, you should try the channels I list below in the table. I divide the channels into 3 regions: Northeastern US, Western US, and Central US:
