This just randomly popped up on my Youtube, this is the EXACT satellite package my family had as a kid.  I didn't realize there were 14 channels on there... and a lot of them were garbage.  Explains why they was never anything on.  Oh, and what the h*ll with there being "Sky Movies" and "The Movie Channel?"  That's WAY too similar.  Call it Sky Pictures or Sky Cinema or SOMETHING.

Sky One was essentially FOX.  Like, literally the same programming at the same times as my local affiliate in the states, though I don't remember if they ran Married with Children after the Simpsons.  I can't remember much of the Children's Channel.  Family was... I don't remember.  Wasn't into MTV back then (or CMT) but part of me wishes I was, I was so out of the music scene back then.

It's striking how many channels are basically US channels with a handful of UK ones.  I remember a neighbour down the street having Cartoon Network but I don't know how.  And because we were in Rome, we didn't have the terrestrial channels (no BBC, no ITV or Channel 4).  We probably got Italian channels but I never knew how to access them.
