An American basic cable channel, Food Network is owned by Television Food Network, G.P., which is a joint venture between Nexstar Media Group and Discovery, Inc., albeit for all practical purposes the channel is operated and managed as a division of Discovery Networks US.
Formerly called TV Food Network, the channel was launched in 1993, and is available to an estimated 91 million U.S. households with a pay-tv subscription. As the name suggests, Food Network does not deviate from its intended programming i.e. regular episodic content that revolves around food and cooking. Viewers get to watch cooking shows featuring top-tier chefs, cooking competitions, travel shows that focus on cuisines specific to certain regions, and reality TV programs for viewers who seek televisual drama. The network’s popularity is not limited to the U.S. either. Food Network has gone international and is available in Asia, Europe, and Canada.
If that alone is enough to entice you to put the Food Network on your watch list, but you do not know if your local cable provider offers the channel, do not worry. Food Network is carried by Spectrum TV in all its TV tiers i.e. SELECT, SILVER, and GOLD. And, with Spectrum TV service being as widely available across the country, it is very likely to be operating in your neighborhood. The main ordeal here is finding the exact number for the Food Network channel. Because as Spectrum cable TV subscribers would tell you numbers differ from one location to another. Yet, do not fret. We have got that covered here!
Foodies should take a moment to rejoice with Food Network. It can be a hassle when you get into the action with a recipe you find online, only to find that it was a literal ‘recipe for disaster’. But when you have worldwide renowned chefs and budding culinary experts to guide you through your kitchen shenanigans, you will not have to look elsewhere. And that is exactly where Food Network steps in.

Chopped is an American elimination cooking game show hosted by American writer and TV food and wine expert Ted Allen. The game show brings four chefs to head to head in a competition to win $10,000. The chefs have to prepare meals using mystery ingredients. What makes it thrilling is that every round gets intense as they progress.
A cooking reality TV series, The Great Food Truck Race has been a part of the Food Network since 2010. With Tyler Florence as the show’s host, it features teams of three who have to drive around different U.S. cities in their food trucks and sell food when they make a stop every week. The show has secured itself twelve seasons, and eighty-six episodes have been aired so far.
An American cooking reality TV series, Supermarket Stakeout features Chef Alex Guarnaschelli as its host. The show revolves around four chefs who have to prepare lip-smacking meals using ingredients bought from customers as they exit the marketplace. But that comes with another twist. They have to prepare every meal within a certain budget. The final prize for the winning chef amounts to $10,000.
The Food Network is the perfect binge-watch pick if you are a foodie, an aspiring chef or if you want to prepare scrumptious meals for your family on a bustling weekend. And, Food Network also has quite a few sister channels you can tune in to. For instance, Animal Planet, TLC, and HGTV are also available on Spectrum TV. Cooking Channel is among its sister channels too. But, if you wish to add that to your Spectrum Channel Lineup, you would have to subscribe to Spectrum SILVER. The Spectrum SELECT package is sure a great mix of local and popular American networks, but it is for the modest TV watcher. Whereas SILVER comes with all of SELECT and gives you more of everything.
