Default Question about Starmate 5 & A La Cate menu

I'm really interested in Starmate 5 and adding some Sirius & some XM A La Carte channels. However when I go http://www.sirius.com/packages/alacartegold and look at the channels available, I don't see any of the XM Music channels. Is that something they plan on adding? Or is the whole point of the merger and the A La Carte options to just save some money on whatever service you want? The only thing in the best of XM that interests me is the NHL Home Ice and games.

Anyway just didn't know if they ever actually planned on giving a full A La Caret menu with all Sirius and XM channels available or if what we have now is pretty much all we'll ever have?

I don't think they have come out with the a la cart feature yet...

Maybe after the new year...

http://shop.sirius.com/edealinv/serv...dParentID=7870 According to that page the Starmate 5 supports the A La Carte programming and acording to the previous page I listed, it lists what channels are available. However none are the XM music channels.

The latest rumor, and I have no idea it it is true, is that Sirius / XM are merging their music channels to 50 channels that will common both platforms.

Dang it. That really sucks if that's true. There goes the who reason I even wanted the merger to go through. Only thing I want from XM is XMLiquidMetal and Squizz. I don't care about anything else.

It appears the rumor is TRUE. Consolidation is happening as your are reading this..
