Hmm you're probably right, even with those groups I imagine there will 
still be quite a number of channels in them.
Sorry, I'm just speaking from my own experience which is Dutch cable TV

It just seemed a good feature to be able to have a personal list of 
favorites for each family member, the groups seemed to fit the bill nicely.
