By POE I find E as the correct option.
Since "broadcast" is a plural verb, we need plural subject.

A Incorrect
- "such as" is awkward
- "each of the three major networks" is singular subject


B Incorrect
- "can sometimes occur if" is also not proper.
- We need "when" instead of "if"


C Incorrect
- We need "when" instead of "if"

D Incorrect
- "each of the three major networks" is singular subject

E Correct
- "as when" is properly used.
- IMO "three major networks each" is a plural subject.

Picking E over C.
Tough one for me.
C also looked right but preferred ' when ' over 'if'.
