Why are adult channels in the middle of my premium channels?

Why are adult channels in the middle of my premium channels?

If I had known that I would be bombarded with all manner of adult programming as I passed through standard premium channels I would not have signed a year contract with Direct TV. Also, forget about having a series available on demand, we never have more than 2-3 episodes available. I will be going back to CoxCable as soon as my year is up. I wish that the adult movies (which are shocking to the system) was not a default setting. It should be something that one needs to request, not something that is in your face while changing channels. Then I am forced to enter codes just to watch anything rated R, like most movies. All this to avoid ADULT programming. Huge mistake, I bet you are losing customers.

You can set up a custom list of the channels you watch and they will be the only ones in the guide.

There is also a setting to hide the adult channels, so they won't show in the guide at all and you don't have to enter a code to see any movies.

Infuriating to me also, passed a showtime extreme (something like that) as I flipped through, nothing more than straight porn with my kids right there.    Then they advertise for porn too where you can watch anything and everything, had I known, we wouldn't be sitting with this contract either.   We're outta there at the end.

Adult channels are not in the middle of the premiums.

 

HBO: 501

Cinemax: 515

Starz 525 / Encore 535 (Encore is in Ultimate and there is also an Encore only pack).

Showtime 545 (Sundance is also in Xtra and above, TMC east/west in Ultimate).

HD Extra Pack 565 (HM&M is also in main packages Select, Entertainment, Preferred Xtra, and Premier)

Adult channels 575

 

So adult channels are after the normal premiums, not in the middle of them. You can go into parental controls and Hide Adult to hide the adult only channels. You can also set a ratings limit as some premiums have programming rated 'M' which includes some late night programming. Favorites list to hide any other channels you don't use.
