Why Does DirecTivo Keep Adding Channels?

Quick question:

There are 3 channels lists: (1) all channels, (2) channels you receive, and (3) favorites.

The second two are edit-able. However, for some reason there are two (and only two) channels that keep popping back into my "channels you receive" list--Gem Shopping and Celebrity Shopping. I take them out, uncheck the box, and they are gone from my guide. However, the next day, they're back! Why is Tivo doing this to me???

I think "channels you receive" are updated by DirecTV when a new channel is added. You can then say whether you receive it or not (meaning: pay for it). Is it possible these channels come and go from the overall DirecTV line-up for some reason? Maybe they only transmit for a few hours per day? I don't know, I've never heard of them.

Either way, I stick with "favorites" in my guide.
