Congratulations to Shaw for adding some channels for grown ups for a change. I do appreciate that most companies have to cater to the demographics so they say. However, after closely examing most of the new offerings of the last few years it seems mainly to be Sports (enough already) or channels showing those idiotic reality programs. I do understand they are popular so I guess that is why TV today is mostly for the low information viewer. Please Shaw, continue to offer up the occasional channel for viewers like me. History International would be nice as the History Channel is now a complete joke.
