Major cable providers, such as Comcast and Time Warner Cable, provide lists of local channels on their official websites. Specialty websites dedicated to providing information on cable and satellite providers such as AllConnect.com also list the cable service providers that are available in local areas.
Official cable company guides can typically be sorted by area code, customer favorites list, channels they receive in their package and all channels available. Television listing websites, such as TVGuide.com, provide lists of what is playing on every channel, and users can sort them by provider and time zone. Customers who already receive cable programming also have access to a local list of channels directly on their television using the guide on the television itself.
