#4: History Channel

As Discovery Channel (NASDAQ:DISCA) dropped out of top 10, History Channel maintained its usual spot on the elite list. Its standout program was Hatfields & McCoys, a three-part mini-series broadcast that brought in a huge audience and countless award nominations. Kevin Costner, for example, recently took home a Golden Globe for his role in the series.

A new series called Vikings has also been generated buzz for the channel. It is slated to start running this year.

Investors can’t put their money directly into History Channel, though, as it is part of A+E Networks, owned by The Hearst Corporation and Disney (NYSE:DIS).
