Looks Like The 'H' 'as Become Silent?

I'm talking about T.V. CHANNEL5.

I first noticed it a few days ago as I drifted through what was on offer on the box, instead of pronouncing it 'Channel', the guy said 'Canal'!

I had two thoughts,

1/ I've tuned in to a French or Belgium 'Canal' by mistake.

or,

2/ As much as the guy sounds as if to be pronouncing the rest of his words in English, for some strange reason Channel now needs to be pronounced without the 'H'.

I checked, I went to the index and sure enough it showed Channel5 with a 'H', are we seeing an individual that can't pronounce his 'H' or is this an EU ploy to force us to remain part of the continent?

Oh s'it, how many other word will lose their 'H' if this is allowed to continue?

Come to think of it, this has been going on for years,

for example, we now pronounce Marathon, as, Snickers!

Been playing with that word for ages, only word I can come up with is (Trespasser) but then again I am only a Yocal from uncoat.(properly, uncote).

All the best, Taddy.

Have you noticed how they add an aitch where it doesn't belong and pronounce aitch as Haitch?

Why do they always stress the wrong syllable in certain words, ie Harass
controversy?
