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.

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.

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.

Honestly Speaking, I enjoy my Sunday with at least a blockbuster movie premiere with my family, seating on a couch with Delicious Meals, Please maintain the status of showing award winning Hollywood movies.

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

Good Cartoon Graphics

Good Cartoon Animation

Good Cartoon Arts

Good Cartoon Color

Not so Eyebleeding

No offesive words, bad words, curse words, etc.

Fresh Plot and grammer

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.

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

Has an amazing worshops for their celebrities. They know how to get each of their celeb get famous and known, noy only in the Philippines but in the whole wide world. They has a strong connection in terms of everything. They create a really great shows, movies, and compete shows. Most of their celebrities are popular outside the country. They also daily help people and they do it in a lot of ways. Everything in ABS-CBN is so good, full of fun, full of excitement, full of love, full of humbleness, full of talents, full of brainy people, and A LOT MORE. I recommend you ABS-CBN when you go to the Philippines. Its really great you wont regret that you watch their shows.

ABS-CBN has a creative mind and reponsible attitude, and they are have a brilliant ideas in how to make the projects really essential and entertaining, they're ability have a world wide class, even the actors and actress have a stunning ability and talents, its quality of performing have a development and improvement in what the best of its parts have been applied in which audiences amazed how ABS-CBN works perfectly, they also pick the best when it comes to any talent, and places others in which they fit most!

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.

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.

Nickelodeon was my absolute FAVORITE channel growing up! "SpongeBob Squarepants" was my favorite show when I was growing up. And it's gotten better in recent times. They've been improving, They've given us "The Loud House" which surprisingly managed to be the new "Fairly OddParents" after that died out, (yeah, "Fairly OddParents" finally got an end.) They gave shows from the 90s second chances, ("Hey Arnold! The Jungle Movie", "Rocko's Modern Life: Static Cling", and (This may be cheating, but it might be worth it.) the untitled "Invader Zim" movie. This comes to show that Nickelodeon is back and ready to beat Teen Tit-errr... Cartoon Network who has horrible shows like "Teen Titans Go! " "Steven Universe", "Clarence", "The Powerpuff Girls 2016", "Mighty Magiswords", etc. Nickelodeon is really back in action again!

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.

Nickelodeon was awesome until 2004, now it sucks eggs to the highest level, and it got much worse in 2012, when Nick Studio 10 ruined it's entertainment and ratings with such crap, all of the good shows are gone and now it's nothing but crap, FYI, SpongeBob SquarePants got messed up in 2004 and The Fairly OddParents got messed up in 2009.

5 Discovery 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

Discovery Channel has been hiring questionable talent lately and there are allegations that the talent they hire do not get vetted. How did this channel become so irresponsible?

Not as good as it used to be.Sadly, most newer shows on here are not exciting at all.Still, I have good memories of watching a lot of great shows back on the day, mostly Mythbusters and the Survival show with Bear Grills.

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

6 Comedy Central

South Park, Daily Show, Colbert Report and Dave Chappelle Show... plus random stand up comedy... best channel there is. I remember when I first watched Comedy Central... It was like nothing I ever saw before. If I could pay for one T.V. channel, this would be it.

I love this channel they have great shows like south park the daily show comedy central roast broad city tosh.o corparate drunk history detroiters the jim jeffries show and other shows that used to air like key and peele nathan for you workaholics brickleberry review chappelles show comedy central presents the opposition reno 911 drawn together dr katz and more

Key and peele, South Park, futurama, tosh.0, Colbert show, stand up comedy shows, and brickleberry no doubt the best channel

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

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

I love cricket not really any other sport

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.

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.

As an australian, fox is my only chance to watch good shows (oh god the australian shows are bad), it has shows like family guy, simpsons, american dad, and a lot of other good shows. And to any other Australians reading this, I'm watching fox 8, not fox

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

9 AMC

AMC has some of the best shows like Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, Mad Men, Fear the Walking Dead, etc.

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.

The Walking Dead, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Better call Saul, Hell on Wheels. Do I need to say more?

10 ABC

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.

Why is this channel not even in the top ten? It should be at number one! I wouldn't be able to be alive without this show, so amazing!

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

The Contenders

11 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

12 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.

All viewer friendly I.E. does not need to verify to watch the latest episodes (unlike abc and fox). Does not require you to allow cookies like abc.

I will watch it when my dad gets a new cable (with every channel internationally)

13 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.

Boomerang was a great channel back when they were showing all of the classics.but then about a year ago they rebranded it and stopped showing most those classics shows in favor of shows that basically seem like they were rejected from Cartoon Network,but they decided to put it on a channel just for those.

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 Animal 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!

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?

This is the best because I love learning about Animals

15 Nicktoons

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.

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.

16 NBC

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.

NBC is the best. it has great classics: Seinfeld, Friends, even the quiz show scandal was on nbc. A few years ago, the office ended, recently, parks and rec ended, superstore is running now it has: the voice(not so great), agt, blacklist

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

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

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

This is the best channel ever! Lab Rats is so cool. 3 bionic teenagers living in a billionaire's mansion who go on missions.it is so unpredictable. Villains come out of nowhere. What is cooler than this. This channel should at least be in the top ten. Haters!

This channel is just way too low on this list.

At least it has reruns of Phineas and Ferb

18 National Geographic Channel

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

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

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

From food, history, people, to enviroment, one of my favorite channels!

19 Disney Channel

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!

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

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.

Disney Channel isn't that Bad of a channel I mean like Disney Channel is a great channel for families. I wouldn't say it is # 86 at least in the 50's or 40's maybe in the 30's 20's 10's. But not in the 80's. VOTE PEOPLE!

20 BBC One

I mean, come on. HBO as the top? BBC One has the longest-running sci-fi show, Doctor Who, plus the brilliantly casted and written mystery drama, Sherlock. Plus the detailed BBC Earth and the various documentaries, where the HECK can you go wrong?

Given the variety of shows it airs BBC One is a no brainer of a choice. Strictly Come Dancing, Poldark, Countryfile, Antiques Roadshow, Doctor Who, Sherlock, The One Show, Mrs Brown's Boys and many one off dramas like War & Peace and The Night Manager.

Dr Who, Sherlock, Top gear & Pointless are the bomb! The old shows from the 70s/80s like Porridge, Dad's Army, Monty Python & Only fools and horses deserve to rerun as I love them all.

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

21 Showtime

The best show in the Philippines. Its really fun watching the show.

Showtime. The best noon time show in the Philippine Television.

They Give a Good Vibes for the Audience and The Fans!

Lol pinoys this isn't its showtime its an American channel.search it this isn't its showtime

22 The 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

Should be tied with discovery channel. History & Science; they go hand in hand.

23 TBS

the FUNNIEST channel out there! family guy, king of queens, my name is earl, the office, my boys, bill engvall, house of payne, fresh prince f bel air, home improvement, saved by the bell. Plus they show awesome movies. Wachin yet?

There is one show that keeps me on this channel, and always will. Seinfeld. IT'S AWESOME

TEAM COCO

it's great...all the best t.v. shows.

DAWSON'S CREEK AFTER ALL THESE YEARS STILL KEEPS ME WATCHING.

24 MTV MTV is an American basic cable and satellite television channel which is a part of the "Viacom Music and Entertainment Group" which is the flagship Property of the Viacom Media Networks division of Viacom, of which it is a subsidiary.

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.

I want my MTV back!

Was good back when they were showing what they were suppose to show (music videos).but all it is now is crappy reality shows for a bunch of stupid teens.it shouldn't even be called MTV anymore.

Teen Wolf! Starring the all amazing, all talented, all good looking' Dylan O'Brien!

25 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
