    Re: meaning

    "Go shopping" is in quotation marks because the person can shop through their TV and phone...without the need to "go" anywhere (like a store or mall).

    They use the quotes because they want to solicit the meaning of "going shopping" but let the reader know that the meaning of the expression in this context is something different.

    Cable channels are channels that you must subscribe to in order to view on your television. For example, a movie channel like HBO is a cable channel. It is not free and in order to view it you must pay a monthly charge.
