removal/block channels

How do you get channels removed and/or blocked. For example without requesting a "forces" channel has come up. I do not want this at all. How do I get rid of it

Re: removal/block channels

You can't. If its part of your package you just have to put up with it being there (the channel has paid to be included). Just ignore it. No one is forcing you to watch it.

Since I am on the Full House package I get all sorts of wired and wonderful channels. Fortunately nobody is forcing me to watch them.

Who is holding a gun to your head forcing you to watch it?

Nice to be able to post again, after their mistake (removed by the Censorship team).

Re: removal/block channels

Is there any way to put a lock on specific channels? Like a parental pin but on specific channels rather than programmes? Not talking about adult channels either... Specifically cartoons

Yes. You can PIN lock channels.
