Babel on TV

I was looking at the premium cable TV services offered by Verizon. There are premium channels offered for the following languages:

(all prices are in USDs per month as of 2/28/2009)

Arabic (3 channels for 19.99)

Amenian (1 channel for 4.99)

Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian (2 channels for 9.99)

Cambodian (2 channels for 9.99)

Farsi (1 channel for 14.99)

Filipino (2 channels for 24.99)

French (1 channel for 9.99)

Hebrew (1 channel for 6.99)

Italian (1 channel for 9.99)

Japanese (1 channel for 25)

Korean (4 channels for 24.99)

Mandarin (Chinese) (2 channels for 9.99)

Polish (1 channel for 17.99)

Portugese (1 channel for 9.99)

Romanian (2 channels for 14.99)

Hindi (1 channel for 14.99)

Vietnamese (1 channel for 14.99)

Spanish (27 channels for 11.99)

No Malaysian TV! Also no Vulcan.
