From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The ABC Television Network is an American television network made up of ten owned-and-operated stations and nearly 200 affiliates. This is a table listing of ABC's affiliates, with ABC-owned stations separated from privately owned affiliates, and arranged by market ranking based on data compiled by Nielsen Media Research. There are links to and articles on each of the stations, describing their local programming, hosts and technical information, such as broadcast frequencies

The station's virtual channel number follows the call letters. The number in parenthesis which follows is the station's actual digital channel number.

Notes:
1) **Indicates a station built and signed-on by ABC;
2) ++Indicates a station owned by Capital Cities Communications prior to its acquisition of ABC in 1986;

3) Several stations are listed with 1953 as their first year of affiliation with the network. Though ABC launched its television service in 1948, the year 1953 appears because ABC acknowledges its present history to have commenced in February of that year, following the merger of the American Broadcasting Company with United Paramount Theaters.
