I don't find this surprising. I think that one's mind can only cope with so many channels. One might watch another occasionally as a result of channel surfing, but I'm sure that each individual has a list of channels that they consider regular viewing, even if only very occasionally. I get Freeview and when I went through the channels (excluding +1 services and things like 4/7) I think of to view, I came up with 17. There are many others but I don't think of looking at them except when I'm desperate and my regular 17 have zilch on.
