So many repeats

I am a subscriber to Cable TV, but I cannot say the service it provides is any better than TVB Pearl and ATV World.

Most programmes are repeated, and there are often several repeats.

The only good thing worth watching is CNN. But after half an hour, you can switch channels, as they also start repeating themselves - although there is some variety throughout the day, such as sports and Larry King Live.

Star World is not much better. It keeps repeating episodes of Home Improvement.

Also, I am not interested in watching wrestling. We all know wrestling matches are fixed. I would far rather watch a real boxing match.

As far as repeats are concerned, TVB Pearl keeps repeating the same editions of Japan Video Topics.

Is it really too difficult for these networks to come up with new material, or is it just too expensive for them?
