Astro Is Confusing

Beginning 1st October 2007, Astro changes its channel numbers because they are changing to 3 digit numbers. The reason as they said is to accommodate 100+ channels. I find out that the new listing is very confusing and difficult to memorise. Whenever I want to change programme, I have to start from 101 and click the + programme until reaching the desired channel. So annoying and time wasting. Just wonder why jumble up the channel numbers instead of classifying the channels numbers according to category instead of jumbling them up.

For example movie channels
HBO - 411
Cinemax - 412
Star Movie - 413
AXN - 701
Hallmark -702

Why must AXN be 701. It would be much easier to give it 414 and Hallmark as 415.

Local terestrial stations

RTM 1 - 101
RTM 2 - 102
TV 3 - 103
NTV 7 -107
8TV - 708
TV 9 - 119

Don't you see is as confusing?

The tagline says Astro: Making Your Life Richer

Is it so? My tag will be
Astro: Making Your Life Confusing and Poorer (High subs and forced to watch adverts at my expanse)
