Blocking Free Porn Channels on TV

Is anyone else bothered about how easy it is to get the free porn channels on TV? I'm talking about the 900s on Sky and the 90s on Freeview where semi-naked women roll around and mime sex to get premium rate callers.

I'm not suggesting these should be banned but it bothers me that every Sky and Freeview has these unless parents deliberately block them. I've heard of adults accidentally selecting them and toddlers doing the same. That's quite apart from teenage boys deliberately tuning in when there's no adults about or on the bedroom set.

Here's my idea. The adult stations should be blocked in receivers unless an adult deliberately unblocks them.

If enough people are interested set up a petition on the Government website. It's clear the regulator doesn't care or they would have done this years ago.

If it doesn't bother you just remember trouble could have been avoided next time the monther in law visits and you select 902 'Bang Babes' instead of 209 'Alibi+1' or 906 'Babestation Live' instead of 609 'Disney Channel'.

An excellent idea. I'd gladly sign your petition.

DD found these the other day. Luckily she asked me what an Adult channel was. I told her it was only for grown ups.
She is rapt with CBBC at the moment, but I imagine it's only a matter of time until she gets bored with MI high.
I will sign your petition.

One late night I was looking for QVC -Channel 740.
Accidently keyed in 470- Adult Channel Preview in Freeview.

Not a mistake I'd make again, or would want my DCs to do.
