S/V agreement is OK.

I think there is S-V agreement error here.

Although it claims to delve into political issues, television can be superficial, as when the three major networks each broadcast exactly the same statement from a political candidate.

IMO, it should be 'each broadcasts'

C is clear and concise.

E too.

since the verb is plural we need plural subject and E has it. although it is followed by each, three networks is the subject..

use of "if" in C is not correct, however "as when" in E is also something unusual. toughiiiieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

anyway choose E.

Sorry but the verb broadcast is related to 'the three major networks' not to 'each'.
So only 'E' is clear and concise.

M8, I am still not sure.
If that is the case then why is 'each' used here?
Ok let me rephrase the sentence:

Although it claims to delve into political issues, television can be superficial, as when each of the three major networks broadcasts exactly the same statement from a political candidate.

So in this case, am I using the correct form of the word 'broadcast'?

You are right b14kumar,

"Each" requires a singular verb. That's why we should eliminate A, D and E here ..

See my explanation above. + each is an adjective not a pronoun.
Your rule (mentioned above) is applied to each only when it is a pronoun.
For example, CNBC, RBC, and BBC each broadcast the news at 8:00 p.m. everyday. But each of these news networks is located in different countries.

This is one more learing for me.
I have not seen such sentence or may be I did not look at this kind of structure in the sentence.

M8 for the clarification.
