I'd swap all of those for Boomerang. I miss the classics.

Bloomberg would be good. Plus I always wondered why as a subscriber to World TV we didn't get all the channels in the package that Sky subscribers got but paid the same!  Also I do like Fox New - very flashy and trashy but entertaining nevertheless and can be more lively than CNN or BBC news

Are they moving away from Sky digital decoders feeding the channels for both analogue and digital to direct digital feed?
