Are you wondering what to watch on TV tonight? Between satellite, cable, and streaming services, it’s so hard to choose.
So what are the best TV channels?
Given that television viewing choices are subjective, it’s tough to say which channels are the best.
We’ll take a look at some of the most popular ones here though.
If you love the concept of home and everything that goes with it, then you’ll find yourself quickly addicted to HGTV.
Viewers can join the Property Brothers to watch homes transform in front of their eyes. Or they can dream of new haunts with House Hunters or My Lottery Dream Home.
2. The Food Network
Just as we love all things home, food also brings us together.
The Food Network serves up a virtual sampling of the latest food trends, new and promising chefs, and just plain old appetizing programming.
3. National Geographic Channel
Just like the magazine, the National Geographic Channel offers fascinating information about people, travel, weather, the Earth, technology, and, of course, animals of all shapes and sizes.
There really is something for everyone with this channel.
If you were around in 1979, you may remember the wonder of the cable station WTBS.
It was being piped into nearly every home that had cable.
Now known as TBS, it’s continued as top cable TV ratings for its solid programming lineup and mass appeal.
With programming like Full Frontal and Conan, it’s also becoming renowned for its original comedy and talk shows. Yet viewers still find nostalgic comfort in sitcom reruns.
5. The Weather Channel
Despite the weather apps on your many devices, they’re no replacement for the Weather Channel.
If you haven’t tuned into the Weather Channel in a while, do it now.
After half an hour, you’ll not only know in full detail what to expect, but you’ll be nearly qualified to be a meteorologist yourself.
It’s truly addictive.
6. Cartoon Network
Although maybe not a powerhouse by day, Cartoon Network’s evening and late-night offerings via Adult Swim have changed the animation scene.
As much as you might love the classics, Adult Swim serves up offbeat animation for the 18-49 demographic with shows like Rick and Morty and Mr. Pickles.
Known once upon a time as ABC Family, Freeform has made a serious metamorphosis.
With programs like Grownish and Pretty Little Liars, it’s tough to imagine that the channel started in 1977 under the ownership of the Reverend Pat Robertson.
Through a contractual clause, The 700 Club does continue to air on Freeform though.
8. The Major Networks
CBS, ABC, NBC, FOX, and PBS are still going strong.
CBS has its own streaming service, while ABC offers up incredibly diverse comedies. NBC gets good marks for its dramatic series and FOX has a little bit of everything from NFL to NASCAR.
PBS continues to be essential for kids who love PBS Kids shows and their parents who can’t get enough of Downton Abbey.
Plus, all of these are available by merely paying a one-time antenna installation cost.
