TV Channels

I doubt that I have watched more than a tenth of the channels available on our TV. Most of our viewing is from a handful of channels. However, I have noticed that whilst many channels have names that imply they show a certain type of content – their actual schedules do not match that name.

Reality shows rather than music fill MTV (Music TV). Well under half of the shows on History have subjects that fit the name, Even Fox Soccer channel shows Rugby Football as well as the Beautiful Game. The channel should probably be called Fox Football, which would cover Association Football and Rugby Football. I suppose that might cause confusion as Americans use that word for their own version of Rugby with the players wearing padding.

Mind you none of these examples of names mismatched with content are as extreme as Fox News.
