"I do not really see culture programs being provided by the commercial channels. There was the Southbank show i suppose - but that stopped many years ago."

Sky Arts (1 and 2) started off with good intentions, but like most speciality commercial channels, very soon forget their name and why they are there and branch out into off-topic shows. Have you ever looked at MTV in recent years? The Horror Channel? SciFi? The Learning Channel (now TLC, letters actually mean nothing now)?
