SEPTEMBER 2017: I have not opened TS3 for a number of years. I have no idea if this mod still works. If it does - great! If not, I'm sorry, but it won't be updated.

What is this? What does it do?
This is a simple STBL mod that renames the in-game TV Channels to use the names of Australian Pay TV channels with similar content.
All of the names were taken from a Foxtel/Austar TV guide, with the exception of Gardening Australia and Fishing Australia - they take their names from shows instead of channels.
For English games.

The EA name and the modified name are as follows:
Action World -> A&E
Cookin' Cable -> Lifestyle Food
Fishing Fracas -> Fishing Australia
Got Garden -> Gardening Australia
Halls of History -> History Channel
KidZ Zone -> Nick Jr.
Romantic Rendezvous -> Adults Only
Sports Universe -> FOX Sports
Super Shopping Network -> TVSN
Terror TV -> Crime Investigation Network

The weather channel is not included in this - it retains its usual name of 'Weather'.

Tested and confirmed compatibility with patch 1.63 through to 1.67. Should only conflict with other mods which alter the TV channel names.

I did make this on a previous patch version and in theory it should be backwards compatible, however I don't recall which patch it was first made with so I will not explicitly say that it is compatible with any older patches - just that it more than likely would be.
