I don't know about pay TV channels in the U.S., but here in Canada (specifically, Western Canada), we have a series of movie channels which are sold as a package of 4-6 channels, divided up by genre and vintage. These are, I suppose, the Canadian equivalent of HBO, AMC, TMC, etc. Of course, they are premium channels, you have to pay a monthly subscription for these services, not to mention renting/buying the equipment to receive them... ...and now they're using station bugs. I'm stunned. I can't believe it. Do HBO, AMC, etc use these? I can't believe they have the nerve considering what people pay for these channels. The arrogance never ends. Next up is Pay Per View. I just know that within the next couple of years, we will see bugs on PPV broadcasts.
