Cord-cutting may be the future, but people who aren’t subscribing to cable still want history.

A new survey by Beta Research asked cord-cutters and non-cable TV subscriber which basic cable networks are most interesting to them, and 43% pointed to History and National Geographic Channel. Right behind them were Discovery, Food Network, Animal Planet and A&E.

The results are interesting at a time when programmers are trying to figure out the millions of households that have broadband but no cable subscription.

Among smaller networks, cord-cutter signaled desire for Sony Movie Channel, FXM, Cooking Channel, FXX and BBC World News.
