A. Although at one time children’s programming had been limited to a few hours a week, now, however, there are at least four cable networks that dedicate themselves - no need of 'had been'
B. With children’s programming having been limited at one time to a few hours a week, now at least four cable networks have dedicated themselves - 'having been's is almost always wrong in GMAT
C. Once limited to a few hours a week, there are now at least four cable networks with children’s programming that dedicate themselves - awkward
D. Children’s programming was once limited to a few hours a week, but now there are at least four cable networks dedicated - CORRECT
E. While children’s programming had once been limited to a few hours a week, at least four cable networks are now dedicated

In my view, had once been is past perfect, but we need simple past out here. Also, "While children’s programming had once been limited to a few hours a week" is modifying "at least four cable networks" which is wrong.

Experts. Please comment.

In an order of events, "there are now at least" is present so the action that took place right before it shoul be simple past tense (that is why D).
