The Top Ten

1
HBO
Its a great channel it shows boys movies and also girls its the best movie/television channel I know that HBO rocks and this is the best channel ever I know and ii like this channel a lot because it is the best for years HBO is a brilliant channel ever created on television. Not only does it provide tons of gold and new flicks, most of them are good, and some great intermissions with a good overall look of upcoming flicks, but also provides some great shows- I'm looking at you Game of Thrones-with low commercial issues and a cool name. Must own channel.
HBO. The most brilliant channel ever created on television. Not only does it provide tons of old and new flicks, most of them are good, and some great intermissions with a good overall look of upcoming flicks, but also provides some great shows-I'm looking at you Game of Thrones-with low commercial issues and a cool name. Must own channel.
I Don't like to give things more support if they already have heaps, but HBO is the best channel by far... Game of Thrones, Boardwalk Empire, True Blood, The Sopranos, The Wire and Curb Your Enthusiasm!
[Newest]HBO is a good channel shows nice movies, and good comedies.

2ABS-CBN
ABS CBN dominates every filipino's family and heart. The actors are seasoned with skills, attitude and humility. They remained to be the standard and the rest only follows. The management knows how to play their cards well by providing only superb and exceptional talents that showcase the real Filipino values and talents to the world. They are also not afraid to expose fresh talents and give breaks to those who waits. They are the leader to beat in news casting especially in giving the people live telecast from regional group to international high definition coverage living their mission IN THE SERVICE OF THE FILIPINO WORLDWIDE. You already know what to watch in every cinema just by their actors' names they don't need nametags. The movies produced by them are super mega blockbuster. The albums and concerts of their artists are sold-out just by the first selling day. What makes them far and unreachable even by inch by their imitator which is GMA7 is their humility by letting the people speak who is the real number 1 not by self-proclaim but thru the ability of the viewers to buy tickets in concerts/ movies and twitter trending acts not just by flooding to trend nationwide but by the devotion of every avid viewer worldwide!
ABS-CBN is the no. 1 channel not just here in the Philippines because ABS-CBN is serving more people world wide, not to mention their different world class award and even national awards in different giving bodies, but the quality of their service around the world. their precious and shining talents are very convincing when it comes to acting, singing and dancing and so on. unlike other network which is gma that made its highly anticipated record worldwide as the no. 1 worst T.V. network.
Their advocacy of bringing entertainment, values and oneness to the Filipino people all over the world through their slogan "In the service of the Filipino people" is undeniably fulfilled..
[Newest]If Hatsune Miku was to pick an official Philippine network... It has to be ABS-CBN, because they are just like her: the best and purely creative!

3Cartoon Network
It is the best channel for kids, but it can still be enjoyed by older viewers. Ed, Edd, and Eddy, Adventure Time, Teen Titans, Dexter's Laboratory, Regular Show, Johnny Bravo, Powerpuff Girls, Ben 10, The Amazing World of Gumball, Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends, Codename: Kids Next Door, Chowder, Total Drama, Samurai Jack, Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy, Cow and Chicken, Camp Lazlo, My Gym Partner's a Monkey, and so much more.
Half of these shows aren't even on anymore! You should rethink what you said!
Cartoon network, you loved it's older shows and newer ones. Sure it went a bit downhill in 2009 with CN real, but it's regained itself. I'd much rather watch this station than some other crummy ones that have to do with making video diaries, two underage builders making stupid inventions and never getting busted, an alien living on earth, or about a disturbed kid and a talking snake that have a disgusting sense of humor. Cartoon network rocks!
It has gone a little downhill lately, but it's slowly going back up with Chowder and Flapjack. It definitely hasn't gone downhill like Disney Channel or Nickelodeon. The best network these days anyways.

[Newest]Best channel for all kids ever

4Cinemax
Cinemax used to be a real good channel in the 80's and even the 90's with a good choice of movies, but now it seems that all they have is the same boring stuff all the time. But what keeps us subscribing is NO LOGOS thank you HBO

5Discovery Channel
This channel is the most educational, entertaining and amazing channel I've ever watched. The producers of this show pay tons.. And I mean Tons of money to make the shows that we love happen. Mythbusters is my favorite show ever and throughout the years I have learned from discovery channel perhaps more than school.
Now I know a lot of interesting facts and info that very small portion of people know. It's something to be proud of
IF YOU WANT TO LEARN ABOUT YOUR ENVIRONMENT ONE OF THE GREATEST THING TO WATCH IS ESPECIALLY IF YOU WANT TO BE A PILOT OR DOCTOR ANY THING IN SCIENCE WATCH DISCOVERY YOU WILL BE AMAZED.

I like this too much, because it is useful one for all
[Newest]It's a channel that will teach young people about nature and life.

7FOX
The best comedy and animated series which include The Simpsons, Family Guy, American Dad!, The Cleveland Show, Raising Hope and the sitcom I Hate My Teenage Daughter. FOX also has Napoleon Dynamite (animated series) coming and The Flintstones remake in 2013. FOX also has The X Factor USA.

tBrandley

Awesome channel! It has comedies, realitys, dramas and more. This channels has tons of good programs.

tBrandley

[Newest]Gotham is the reason why fox is in this list.

8Nickelodeon
I love Nickelodeon. It has everything for everyone- George Lopez, Friends, and That 70's Show for adults on Nick at Nite, iCarly, Drake and Josh, and Victorious for teens, SpongeBob, Fairly OddParents and Invader Zim for the kiddies, and Dora, Max and Ruby, and Team Umizoomi for babies and toddlers on Nick Jr.

bubbles1111

Nickelodeon is no longer good like it used to be, it's actually dying because of what Cartoon Network & Disney Channel did and because of our society, they can't make any good shows anymore and after that one show called Every Witch Way, and it's spinoff, which was announced, there won't be anymore good shows anymore, Plus, SpongeBob SquarePants died in 2004, and The Fairly OddParents died in 2009.

nelsonerico6

This is another channel that's popular as a bonus there's also nick at nite when well at nite but beware you don't want to watch nick jr it will annoy you damage your life then you wish you will die tomorrow so beware.
I love nickelodeon but it was much better around the 90's. There's a lot of crappy shows on there now but it's still great for kids.
[Newest]One of the best channels I have ever seen.

cosmo

It's no longer a good channel, it's now one of the worst channels of all time, there are no good shows anymore except Every Witch Way, and SpongeBob SquarePants went downhill in 2004, and The Fairly OddParents went downhill in 2009, they even got rid of the classics as well as those in the 2000's, not they have trash and butt shows as well as teen sex shows, it sucks now for real.

9ESPN
The most watched sports channel in America. It has sports like Hockey, English Premier League Soccer, NFL Football and more.

tBrandley

10National Geographic Channel
No one but one national geographic

The Contenders

11Showtime
ITS GOOD FOR THE TIME AND MAKE RELAXS

The Borgias and Dexter, the best T.V. shows!
[Newest]It's the best noon time show ever.

12CBS
This channel is easily the best. It runs/ran the three best shows I've ever seen (my opinion): NCIS (statistically, the best show), The Big Bang Theory (statistically, the best comedy), and How I Met Your Mother (in my opinion, the most underrated show, finale got 13.4 million viewers (highest rating for the show); the other two shows get roughly 4 million more every week)
Comedy, Drama and More. This includes The Big Bang Theory, Rules of Engagement, 2 Broke Girls, Two and a Half Men and CSI and NCIS.

13Animal Planet
Animal Planet should be number 1! Not Comedy Central it's crap. To me they never had good shows. Animal Planet Rocks! Comedy Central sucks!

Stephen2

First of all a lot of people will have different opinions on comedy central. second of all I personally like animal planet its good for people to watch!
I love you Animal Planet!! You have good shows like Dogs 101, Pet Star, Untamed and Uncut, and the best of all...... IT'S ME OR THE DOG!!!

Stephen2

I love this channel personally because I love nature and animals! It has educational shows and many entertaining things!

14BBC One
DOCTOR WHO! SHERLOCK! And all those crime series! British drama is just so.. so.. amazing! And of course the documentaries, among the best in the world.
Quiz shows (Pointless), factual entertainment (Countryfile), Reality (The Apprentice) the odd talent show (The Voice) and the greatest news team.

mcvito

The annual Children in Need and Comic relief telethons get prime time BBC One scheduling.
[Newest]BBc is the best and it has the best news in the world and live news.

15AMC
The walking dead, breaking bad, and much more great shows. Many great shows on this channel
The best shows and actors I have ever seen a T.V. station have. It has an edgy touch to each show that makes it unique.
Breaking Bad. Mad Men. The Walking Dead. The best shows on air.
[Newest]Wait AMC not in the top 10, What!? Breaking bad? Walking Dead?

16Disney Channel
This channel have shows like Phineas and ferb Good Luck Charlie and Jessieso enjoy your long or short life but I really don't care about your life not to offend you but watch phineas and ferb all pretty soon maybe all over 200 episodes will change your life and there's gonna be a new episode called phineas and ferb mission marvel its awesome and all of those episode make a reference of a lot of comedies talk shows songs movies books cartoons people famous lines and characters like spiderman for like the 5th time
Suite life on deck is the best so get you butts up start voting for Disney Channel if you don't I will find you lets to number one I will kick anyone s butt who will not vote for it except teenagers I can see why teenagers don't like it because they are in to different stuff like mtv and that mess so just start voting kids if I am going to find you and get you just vote apply and just for Disney Channel I will really be upset about who will not vote for it its just like voting for president you have two candidates vote for one and reminds me vote obama please!

custmize11

I love Disney (channel & park). My favorite are Austin & Ally, Jessie, Good Luck Charlie, Shake It Up, Dog with a Blog, and ANT Farm. (not in order) All these how's have improved a lot since their first season.
[Newest]Disney Channel? Really? Who put this here? Disney Channel used to be good, but now it's complete crap!
Nickelodeon has gotten worse, it has only one good show while Disney Channel has three good shows, also, Nickelodeon's ratings dropped by 30% and is no longer the #1 entertainment kids' channel, now Disney Channel is.

17NBC
This American channel has great drama, news programs and a few comedies.

tBrandley

Unlike abc and fox, this T.V. station allows viewer to watch latest episodes without having to verify. Also unlike abc, does not ask to allow cookie. A large selection of good shows.

18Boomerang
Boomerang is the channel for all ages because I shows all the shows that the adults watched growing up. And kids get to see what the shows were like back in the day. It features Scooby Doo, Huckleberry Finn, The Flinstones, Tom and Jerry, and more!
Bommerang was a good channel back in the day

19The History Channel
I agree with the last person who posted. why should the history teachers just give them homework to watch on the history channel?
This is the best way to learn without falling asleep
I agree with you. teachers should tell their kids to watch this for homework!
I learn more from this show than my high school

20BBC
The BBC is the worlds biggest television broadcaster. It is also one of the most well known, expensive, and diverse. It not only broadcast T.V. bust also radio and has a website for nearly everything including the voted as the worlds most reliable news broadcaster BBC news, BBC bitesize an amazing tool for kids and teenagers to use for revision, BBC sport, food, world, America, uktv, ww1, history, arts, music, iplayer, CBBC and cebebies which were also voted the worlds best children's entertainment channels, travel, science, learning, iwonder and a tone more. In fact it is the most visited site in Europe with over 13.2 people from the uk alone visiting it's 2million pages every day. The BBC is worth over 5 billion pounds funded by the uk public. It was set up by the British government with a charter to inform entertain and educate. It is home to the worlds most watched television show which is top gear, also doctor who, and the worlds greatest documentaries. It was also the worlds first broadcaster to broadcast in colour television which is quite an achievement.

Overall the BBC has been setting the standard for T.V. radio and online services ever since it first started. Why it isn't at #1 I don't know. The BBC is simply the best!

21USA
MONK MAKES ME WANNA B A DETECTIVE CEPT FOR THE PHOBIAS. LAW AND ORDER JUST GRABS MY ATTENTION, PUTS ME ON THE EDGE OF SUSPENSE.

23truTV
Best channel ever! Peace from Tunisia

24ABC
ABC family, definitely. They have absolutely the best shows. The secret life of the American teenager, make it or break it, and best of all... PRETTY LITTLE LIARS!
How is ABC at number 18?! That's the channel that gave us The Flintstones, The Brady Bunch, Happy Days, Three's Company, Full House, Home Improvement, Boy Meets World, and George Lopez. ABC is number 1!
Um I see how its not number one, but come on 39!? PRETTY LITTLE LIARS?! It's like the best show on tv! You are all crazy

bayrocks1

[Newest]Least biased, way better than fox.


25FOX NEWS
Least biased? I want some of what you're smoking
Fair and balanced, least biased news channel out there.. That's all that is needed to be said..

26BBC Three
Its the best because animations like Family Guy and American Dad! Are the best
I watched Top Gear there, too.

27Star Movies

28Gold
For a channel that shows endless repeats for programmes such as Only Fools And Horses and Last Of The Summer Wine, you can't go wrong.
Best comedies ever seen on T.V. just so good better than most stuff on T.V. it will brighten your day

29Spike TV

30GMA (Philippines)
They always claim that they are number one but it's not true. In terms of entertainment and shows they are boring and many of their movies, concerts are flops.
Maybe GMA excel in terms of their documentaries but they won't excel in terms of entertainment. Their teleseryes are often inspired in the popular teleseryes of ABS-CBN. They're assuming and they always claim that they are the number 1 network in the country even though that's not true. They often involved in some controversies like manipulating ratings together with agb-nielsen and offering cash and groceries to the houses with agb meters just to watch their shows. They only gained high ratings during pacquiao fights only.
Manipulation of ratings also goes to ABS CBN. They have Kantar on their side.
The most no quality and boring station in the Philippines. Bad taste on their teledrama and even its news reporting.

31Animax
Great channel for anime

32Travel Channel
TRAVEL CHANNEL SHOULD BE #1! THE BEST SHOW ON THIS CHANNEL IS GHOST ADVENTURES, BUT THEY HAVE MAN V. FOOD, ANTHONY BOURDAIN, ETC. :-)

33Nicktoons
Another Nick program that's 24 hours each every day and the good news is there's no nick jr shows to ruin this channel like they did to the original nick I swear of god I am gonna tear every nick jr shows their puny non manly or muscular body limb to limb and SMASH THEM ALL AND I WILL SAY DIE ALREADY ITS LIKE AN ANIMAL FARM IN HERE FOR GOD SAKES! Because they are boring and sorry for what I said I am full of stress and I really 100 percent hate nick jr and I sound like hulk now HULK SMASH NICK JR!
They got rid of the Nicktoons and replaced them with the new cartoons that have potty humor.

nelsonerico6


34Food Network
Chopped is my favorite. And now they have Canada Chopped! Yes, the shows can be cheesy they are not Emmy winning quality, but I just love how all kinds of people are featured on this network, not just Hollywood types.
This is the channel I find myself watching the most by far.
How is this not in the top ten?

35AXN
Best channel for entertainment.
Why 53?! Supernatural is on air!

36G4
GAMERS UNITE! One of the best channels for your gaming and tech needs. If only it was on more providers, you would love it.

37TNT

38Disney XD
This channel is just way too low on this list.

39BBC Two
This Has Top Gear, Mock the Week and QI.

40The CW
Why CW is not at the top of the rank? This station has the best shows. This station definitely is all about what viewers are looking for. Example: totally free exciting shows, on-line latest episode without restrictions, viewers' opinion ("CW seed"), does not require turning on cookie (cookie to "track your activities").
They have the best shows Supernatural, One Tree Hill and Smallville people jeez...
Guys cw contains awesome shows (favourite show is supernatural) and it is awesome. it doesn't deserve 44!
[Newest]The 100? Arrow? Flash? Supernatural? Vampire Diaries? Damn Why is this 41?

41Syfy
How was this channel not even up there? It is now! Sci Fi Rocks!

Freak_Show1


42Hub
The Hub is one of the best channels! My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, Pound Puppies, Family Game Night, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, Animaniacs. Oh, yeah did I mention My Little Pony Friendship is Magic?
This is not just for one show. this channel can teach kids about helping others and friends and many other things!
I hope this is not on the list just because of my little pony.

43VH1
Vh1 should be in top 2 what's this? It's on 40?
