The Top TenXW

1HBO

It's a great channel it shows boys movies and also girls it's 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!

This is the best channel ever...

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 ...more

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..

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.

Best network in the Philippines

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. - nallimcamybloc

It should be in top

4FOX

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

Fox is the T.V. channel, where T.V. shows like the simpsons started everything, there would be no futurama or family guy or South park without simpsons, so this should be 1

What the H*, it started all the animations and awesome shows, like Family Guy, Glee, and Simpsons,

I expect what American Idol the Farewell season has improved ratings...

5Discovery Channel

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. - mcleish

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

I like this too much, because it is useful one for all

It is very useful because it get knowledge about animals

8Nickelodeon

What used to be the best channel ever turned into a heaping pile of crap, they took away all the classics, got rid of the splat logo, got rid of the slime and got rid of the game shows, SpongeBob was good until 2004, it went downhill and became mean spirited, The Fairly OddParents was good until 2009, as Poof was born, the creators retired and new ones got hired and put the show to overdriven repetitive brattiness, All of the early sitcoms from the 90's to 2013 got cancelled and were replaced with bad ones that teach people nothing but crap and have no plot or comedy, The only good shows we have nowadays, and they're new, are, Every Witch Way, 100 Things To Do Before High School (A Pilot was made and new episodes should come soon this year) and Harvey Beaks (Much less butt jokes than Sanjay and Craig and Breadwinners), Other than those shows, Nick is really ready to die. - nelsonerico6

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 going downhill, from 2002 and ahead, with Nick Studio 10, which always interrupted our shows every 7.5 minutes and dropped the channel's ratings by 30% making Disney Channel better, and Disney Channel gone downhill too after Wizards of Waverly Place, now they're desolate channels, but then on January 1, 2014, Every Witch Way came on, and that's an awesome show and considered the last show on Nick that is good.

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.

The only good shows on nowadays for kids are Every Witch Way, the upcoming series 100 Things To Do Before High School and Harvey Beaks. - nelsonerico6

It is just fun to watch things on it to be honest

9Cinemax

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

10CBS

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. - tBrandley

I like it I like it my best thing about abc is.nick nick nick nick nick nick nick nick nick nick nick nick nick nick nick nick nick nick nick on cbs

The Contenders

11AMC

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.

Automatically gets my vote because of Breaking Bad. Nothing compares.

I love to watch walking dead

No one but one national geographic

It teaches people about life. this channel is very trustworthy!

Its more better than discovery channel.
Its all about science, and social. It should be number 1. @1CoralineJones from twitter.

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.

Um, the fact they have doctor who and top gear surely allows the to be placed higher.

15Boomerang

Boomerang is the Best Family Channel. These days Cartoon Network is terrible compared to Boomerang.

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!

Boomerang used to be a good channel until they cancelled all of the Hannah Barbera classics, and even worse, They rebranded it and even gave the logo a crappy look, it's not the Boomerang logo anymore, it's a box of crap. - nelsonerica

16Animal Planet

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

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

Animal planet is low on the this list? And Disney Channel is higher? What is wrong with people?

17ABC

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!

ABC airs some of my favourite shows such as full house and boy meets world. ABC channel make the olsen twins famous. And my all time favourite show pretty little liars is on it.

This is the best. They have Pretty Little Liars! And they also have The Fosters. They even had the best show called Ugly Betty

18NBC

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.

Msnbc is just genius - lawrence o'donnell, chris mathews, keith olberman, rachel maddow and ed schultz - they are awesome

19Nicktoons

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

Nicktoons was an awesome channel back then, they had all of the classics and the most popular shows, SpongeBob SquarePants (Seasons 1 to 3) and The Fairly OddParents (Seasons 1 to 7), but then, Nick got rid of all the classics and put the crappy shows on Nicktoons, they have too many butt and fart jokes and are too violent and they don't teach you anything right, Glad it's so low on the list. - nelsonerica

It was good until they reran the bad shows and eventually, they moved the 90's programs to TeenNick, What's also worse is that they started putting live-action shows on it, like The Haunted Hathaways, The Power Rangers shows and Henry Danger, The channel has gone WAY downhill just like Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network, If you want to watch a really good channel, go to BBC.

This is the best
