For starters I live in an area that has charter/spectrum cable and my extended family all has comcast so I grew up around comcast. Well if you scroll past adult content in the guide it's always just called "adult programming" on those networks.

Today i went to visit my friend out in the boonies who has DirecTV because it's all they've got out there, but I know he still gets local shit so I was trying to figure out how to scroll back to the beginning of the channel guide and find the local stations.

I scrolled through hundreds and hundreds of channels it felt like. But here is the disturbing thing. DirecTV puts their porn titles out in the open. And there were like 50 porn channels including an official brazzers channel.

I saw stuff listed in the guide like "my wife and friend share my meat", "i love my tiny a-cup girls", "my sexy stepmom" or whatever all out in the open and this is just while I'm trying to find where to watch the dang sports. Some of them were much worse but don't expect me to remember them all. Like. Can we not do this? Can we not expose any random person to pornography titles while they are looking for tv? And much less... like, familial fetishes or fetishes that feel weirdly pedophilic (no offense to the IBTC because I'm in it as well but you know why I worry.)

I hate porn! Hate it! Hate sick kink shit! I just want to live a happy life outside the shackles of the world that contains these vile films

Yes, this has been a Direct TV problem for years. The only workaround is to painstakingly edit your channel list. And then they can always add more channels! I've ignored it for years and haven't allowed my grandkids (who can now read!) to touch the remote. We will be dumping DTV as soon as football season is over.

They used to have that on my TV when I was younger. Luckily the channels were premium so you have to pay for a description to watch luckily my parents arent perverted degenerates (we only had a few premium channels like HBO and showtime) however you still see titles and description like step sister, step mom, something about black girl and pink you know what. I think they were many complaints so that's why they got rid of those channels

Amen! When I think of Utopia, this is what I think of, not some Marxist dream. Just no porn and no MVAW, of which porn is part.

Could it be because he possibly subscribes to those channels?

I've got AT&T cable and have never seen anything like that, either.

Nah, everyone gets them on directv. You see all channels you can subscribe to including PPV stuff.

That is something I'd cancel my subscription over. I would not want to see that shit on my TV.

Well, I could see channels that he was not subscribed to. for example, while scrolling to find the channel I wanted, I contemplated giving up and trying to watch a Vietnamese language TV drama but when I clicked the channel it came up with a QR code and and said that his family wasn't subscribed to it
