I think A is the best. The "such as" phrase gives an example of the superficial thing in better way than the option in E. Also, each of the networks is more idiomatic than the three networks each.

The correct usage is....[each] of the [whatever] + singular verb. Here broadcast does not agree with [each of the three major....].
A and D are incorrect.

With B , [all of the] three ...is redundant...we can say ...three major networks OR all the three major networks.

With C , again, we have three major networks [all]...here [all ] may not be necessary.

E is best. the subject is plural{ three major networks} and it agrees with

However, what perplexes me is three major networks each followed by a plural verb.

Would it not require a singular verb if it was each of the three networks?

My understanding is that...'each' should be used when you are denoting two entities and 'one another' when there are more than 2 entities.

e g:

Bill and Jill congratulated each other for scoring well in their SAT exam's.

The winning basketball team congratulated one another.

Where am I going wrong..?
