    Nope.

    History channel has always had a good line up. Wait untill next year when the election begins to warm up!

    Discovery channel needs a little improvement but usually has some wonderfull shows.

    I haven't had cable in a few years. I thought History Channel peaked when it had the "Wings" series. Everybody I knew would talk about the Wings Channel. Don't hear much anymore.

    agreed yes around 2000, if the elections are anything to get excited about and the demos pull it out, the history channel and military channel will be defunct and removed you can bet on it

    just my 2 pesos

    The military channel sucked and I got rid of it . Its straight unadulerated crap as it only covers the US and very rarely anything else

    ?? So what do you watch now Oprah?? :D LOL. I have the same problem with my Satt. radio, they have Ollie North's "War Stories" every week, but the stories are about one country only... I hadn't seen the military channel, I don't think we get it on our cable. There's no reason why they can't put some good programs from BBC or CBC or AusTV etc

    I would say its about 90% content about US actions , I had it about 4 months then dropped it . They had such nail biters as the Grill Sergeants about military cooks . :cry:

    There are quite alot of good programs, they just don't put them on. I think part of the problem (in Canada the UK maybe) seems that kids are indoctrinated now that war is "bad" and we shouldn't glorify or be proud of those who served ( died!). When I see bumper stickers "war is never an option". Sure - If only we had all held hands sang Kumbaya with Hitler Tojo Musso, there would be no need for war! :rolleyes:
