Although it is believed the phenomenon we all know as TV Western, took birth in 1949, reached an explosive peak in 1959, and kind of started fading out in the 1960s — the truth is America’s fascination with it never really died out. Be it the classic Western movies such as The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly or Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, or TV series like The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp and The Wild West — millions across America still love watching a lone horseman ride across their TV screens!  

A Few Words About the INSP Channel

Growing up, characters from the “Old West” and movies like Along Came Jones and Vera Cruz have fascinated many among us with tales from the West. And, if there is one place that brings a programming lineup that includes Western originals, documentaries, and action, it sure is the INSP channel!

An American digital cable and satellite TV channel, INSP is owned by Inspiration Ministries and is headquartered in Indian Land, South Carolina. Formerly called The Inspiration Network, the TV channel saw its launch in 1978.

Going back to INSP’s original roots, the channel was a non-profit network between 1991 and 2010. But INSP underwent a rebranding in 2010 and was then launched as a family entertainment network. INSP’s slogan ‘Heroes Live Here’ perfectly fits the network’s current programming lineup — which gives viewers a great taste of the rowdy shenanigans of nomadic cowboys, bounty hunters, and outlaws, mixed with the ever-living pleasure of watching tough guys in action and the ultimate triumph of good upon evil.

So, if you are looking forward to rekindling your love for these adventurous voyages, tune into the INSP channel — and let the TV Western phenomenon unfold on your home screens with popular shows such as Bonanza, Mountain Men, and Gunsmoke.

What Channel Is INSP on Spectrum?

Now coming to the real deal — finding the INSP channel number on Spectrum TV.

Spectrum takes care of the ordeal of switching channels to find what you are looking for with its on-screen TV guide. But when you are a new subscriber, the on-screen guide may be of little help at first. But once you find your way through it and learn to properly navigate it, you will be able to find all your desired channels and even manage them in personalized lists. The guide will be of great help if you have recently moved to another region and carried your Spectrum TV along, and need to acquaint yourself with a new set of channel numbers. 

You can also use the Spectrum account to get access to a list of channels that are included in your subscription. For further guidance, you can always feel free to contact Spectrum representatives at 855-423-0918.
