The channel number for abs family is dependent upon where you live. For example, at my house it is 44 but at my mother's house it is 174. Because we live in 2 different areas, the channels are different. Check your local listings if you want to know the abs family channel in your area.
The channel ABC family is on depends on what service you have. Just a regular antenna, cable, satellite. Where you live makes a difference too. Different areas of the country broadcast on different channels. I suggest you get the remote and channel surf.
