Best Television Channels

The Top Ten

1 HBO

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.

Not only is HBO a truly spectacular channel, it is also one of the most important channels in all of pop culture. It revolutionize the monthly premium channel model with no commercials, big feature presentation of many films (old and new), and some of the best T.V. shows ever produced or aired.

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!

2 Cartoon Network Cartoon Network is an American basic cable and satellite television channel that is owned by the Turner Broadcasting System division of Time Warner.

I totally agree with this channels ranking, it produced the best shows that really fueled childhoods. With shows like justice league, young justice, Batman, Ben10(this brought a certain kind of enjoyment on having a watch) and also the best show ever Codename:kids next door. Totally awesome bra

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!

Ed Edd n Eddy, Regular Show, Clarence, Uncle Grandpa, Ben 10, Teen Titans, Teen Titans Go, Adventure Time, Dexter's Laboratory, Fosters Home For Imaginary Friends, Ninjago, Chowder, The Amazing World of Gumball, Cow and Chicken, The PowerPuff Girls, I Am Weasel, Codename: Kids Next Door, Total Drama, The Grim Adventures of Bill and Mandy, Steven Universe, Johnny Bravo, Samurai Jack, etc. Easily the best.

3 ABS-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.

ABS - CBN is truly the number one channel not just in the Philippines but in the whole world. I love this channel because their primetime series is reality based you will learn a lot. Their news and current affair is really reliable not bias. Their talents is world class. They have many activities to help filipino and to empower as well.

4 Nickelodeon Nickelodeon is an American basic cable and satellite television network launched on December 1, 1977, and is owned by Viacom through Viacom Media Networks and based in New York City.

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.

of course Avatar, spongebob and Danny phantom but Disney XD is still better

I like the animacion if this Channel the only shows I love is spongebob squarepants and the loud house

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.

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.

5 Comedy Central

South Park and Tosh. 0 FTW

tosh.o daily show colbert report south park ugly americans enough said tosh.o!

CHAPPEL SHOW, MAD TV, JON STEWART. THESE SHOWS GOT ME CRACKING UP.

Impractical jokers, friends, weekly movies, two and a half men what more could you want?

6 Discovery 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.

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

Discovery Channel, my second love after National Geographic

Who needs school when you have National Geographic and Discovery Channel.

7 ESPN ESPN Inc. is an American sports media conglomerate owned by Disney Media Networks, a division of The Walt Disney Company, with Hearst Communications as an equity stakeholder. It owns various sports broadcasting operations, including cable channels, a sports radio network, an accompanying website, and ...read more.

I know this is going to sound crazy but I do not like sports I'm more of a cartoon person I do not hate sports it's just boring but any of you sport buddies out there you can watch it I will give it a 9/10 for you but for me I'm either going to give the channel a 7/10 or a 6/10.

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

How could it not be number #1 it has pro-sports

It is the best Channel because it has NBA

8 FOX

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.

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

Now yes family guy's modern episodes and the Cleveland show made this channel kind of suck but we are going good with the Simpsons and sometimes bob's burgers and we have been doing good with futurama and king of the hill and the earlier family guy episodes and sometimes american dad so its 9/10 for me and others.

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

9 BBC 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.

I pity all these stupid Americans who think that Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network are better channels than BBC One (clearly us Brits have to right that wrong)

Quiz shows (Pointless), factual entertainment (Countryfile), Reality (The Apprentice) the odd talent show (The Voice) and the greatest news team.

The annual Children in Need and Comic relief telethons get prime time BBC One scheduling.

10 AMC

The walking dead, breaking bad, and much more great shows. Many great shows on this channel

Breaking Bad. Mad Men. The Walking Dead. The best shows on air.

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.

The Contenders

11 ABC

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

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.

12 Cinemax

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

Good for older movies wathching

13 Boomerang

It the best. It airs Tom and Jerry, Looney Tunes, Scooby Doo, Regular Show, and Smurfs.

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.

They are making all the commercials for Little kids This channel is not just for little kids. But that is how Boomerang Treats it.

14 CBS

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)

Best show because Big Bang Theory (currently best comedy) following by a prequel (Young Sheldon) they have NCIS (lots of people love), Happy Together, and The Neighborhood are some really good sitcoms and it is currently home of the Super Bowl.

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 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

15 Nicktoons

Nicktoons is bad now. It just airs reruns of trashy shows like Sanjay and Craig, Breadwinners, Fairly OddParents (with Chloe), and countless reruns of Spongebob. Why can't it just air some reruns of Danny Phantom, My Life as a Teenage Robot, Invader Zim, El Tigre, or Catscratch

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.

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.

16 NBC

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

I love nbc is the best Chanel

Why is it even on the list when it cancelled cartoons for no reason in 2016

Nbc is not as good as it use to be but it still as great shows

17 Disney XD Disney XD is an American digital cable and satellite television channel that is owned by the Disney Channels Worldwide unit of the Disney–ABC Television Group, itself a unit of the Disney Media Networks division of The Walt Disney Company.

Best channel ever. With Lab rats and elite force, the powers actually make sense unlike Nickelodeon's Thundermans where the powers are seen as fake. One more thing "Gravity Falls". I don't get why Nickelodeon is higher but ehh

At least it has reruns of Phineas and Ferb

This channel is just way too low on this list.

This channel is awesome! 10/10

18 Animal 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!!!

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!

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

19 National Geographic Channel

National Geographic would be considered the gateway to the edge of the knowledges.

I love National Geographic most. Discovery Channel come the second.

No one but one national geographic

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

20 BBC Three

It's the best because animations like Family Guy and American Dad! Are the best

The bbc need to bring bbc three back

I watched Top Gear there, too.

It's closed now

21 Gold

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

22 BBC Two

Former home of The Apprentice and Great British Bake Off

This Has Top Gear, Mock the Week and QI.

23 Showtime

ITS GOOD FOR THE TIME AND MAKE RELAXS

Its more fun in the Philippines

The Borgias and Dexter, the best T.V. shows!

It's the best noon time show ever.

24 Disney Channel

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. - nelsonerico6

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!

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

The only good shows they ever had were Phineas and Ferb, Gravity Falls, Good Luck Charlie, The Suite Life on Deck, Girl meets world, Stuck in the middle, best friends whenever and Wizards of Wizardly Place. All they have now is annoying teen dramas like Jessie, ANT farm, Shake it Up and other crap

25 Dave

All my favourite programs, red dwarf, top gear, storage hunters, RH good news, and many more!
