- One news and documentary channel.
- Occasional pay per view movies.

Thats about everything on TV thats worth sitting and staring at. One way communication is kinda boring, at least when one is on the passive end.

I love the Sci-Fi channel, but they took ours away in an effort to get more people to spend the money and get Comcast digital cable. And we pay enough for cable as it is.

You can choose which channels you want, just don't watch the ones you don't want. (for instance Freeview has QVC, bid.tv and pricedrop.tv, which are all rubbish)

There is a playboy channel, and whilst I am female, I do appreciate the freedom of choice.
There is no "Naked women's channel."

Don't worry, I bothered:

Spike TV is a US cable network that caters to a young male demographic
