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.
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!

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.
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.

4Discovery 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.

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

8CBS
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.

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

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.

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!

13BBC 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.

LONG LIVE THE BBC you R THE BEST

14Animal 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

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!!!

Animal Planet should be number one! Not HBO, I only like HBO Family, but other HBO channels suck.

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.

16NBC
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

17MTV
MTV REALITY TELEVISION IS ACTUALLY MY LIFE! Shows like Plain Jane and Ridiculousness and Fantasy Factory and House of Food and Catfish and Punk'd. They are just so entertaining and I could literally spend my entire life watching them. You could too. Admit it.
There is no need to give opinion. B, because everyone KNOW MTV IS best T.V. channel

18ABC
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!
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

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!

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

24BBC Three
Its the best because animations like Family Guy and American Dad! Are the best

25truTV
Best channel ever! Peace from Tunisia

26Gold
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

27G4
GAMERS UNITE! One of the best channels for your gaming and tech needs. If only it was on more providers, you would love it.

28Food 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?

34Hub
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?

35Boomerang
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!

36The 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!
