Although they are on the DTT platform, they don't actually have any connection with Freeview. If they pay enough cash to the multiplex operators, there's not much Freeview can do about it.
I think because pay tv was there in the early days of DTT then it set a precedent especially with boxes and TVs having cam/card slots. Pay channels may not have a connection with Freeview but they still get epg numbers.

I want all pay channels banned from Freeview.

Also any channel which requires an additional form of access such as internet connection or smartcard, whether they are free or not!
I'm no so fussed if you can get pay channels through an internet connection as you can choose to ignore that part of the TV service.
