It turns out that Cox Cable has an actual code of OmertÓ of sorts:
: if you ever quit your $155/mo for the History Channel they notify your next of kin and take your set... And, promise never to offer Current TV or The Smithsonian Channel. Sheesh.

2. It's not the Hitler channel any more?
I haven't watched in years but it seemed then that it was all Nazis all the time..

3. Nope, no nazis and no history, at least very infrequently.
They seem to air a lot of reality shows. I've gotten so I rarely bother... :(

4. I thought it was all about the supernatural now.
Sheesh, I just can't keep up. They've done Hitler, Nostradamus, ghosts, aliens... and now guns?

South Park just did an excellent episode centering around Teh Histronics Channel. My S.O. hates cartoons, but just about fell off the couch a couple of times.

5. Guns and sharp shooters - they have a dozen reality shows where
they pitch hard boiled eggs and see if they can get it.


Nazis aren't allowed on any more, but their guns and sharpshooters will be.
