    If we are to have such things at all, they should require an extra hoop to access them. They should not just coming streaming into our homes.

    For all who argue that the channel changer is the only control needed, I would say that we then need to be absolutely certain that our children and grandchildren are never at any home without a responsible adult present. Unless and until we can be certain of that, the concept that all can or will change the channel is a hoax.

    Also, even if I am present, why should my children or grandchildren be subjected to glimpses of filth or snippets of verbal garbage while channel surfing or if they just happen to punch the wrong numbers into the channel changer?

    If they want to be a broadcast channel, then they are part of the public square where nudity and profanity are not allowed. If they want to be something else, then they should be a premium service.
