The difference is these are new channels on XM, not ones that are hijacked.

I will say at least this time Sirius used the piece crap shuffle channel, so that they aren't killing a certain type of music.

Oh no Not another one Evidently Sirius does not pay much attention to the opinions expressed on this soundboard.

I wish we could just go back to the channel line-up that was in place when I first subscribed back in '04.

We actually had a world music channel, Horizons, and a folk channel, Folk Town, and other great stuff like Vacation and Swing Street. The only single artist channel was Elvis, which is the only one I'm okay with. And we had a true Standards channel, not this Sinatra most-of-the-time garbage.

The only positive additions to the music line-up in recent years, as far as I'm concerned, have been Lithium and Punk. When you consider the other changes, including the single artist channels, I truly miss the channel choices of a few years ago.

Sirius should bring back the vacation channel.

I have heard that was a great channel. Maybe something like that will be created via the merger. (doubt it though )

So they add Bruce and take away the Bridge, they add the Stones and take away Shuffle .... yet if they merge they are going to be able to put 10 XM channels on the dial as well? Where will they get that bandwidth?
If they had the bandwidth to spare they wouldn't be dropping the channels to add new ones.

Kind of off topic, but could someone tell me what kind of music Vacation played?

I don't understand people trying to get behind HD radio either its stupid. You only maybe get one extra channel per station, so each market goes from 10 to 20 channels? Wow amazing.

I'm against these single artist channels.

I guess I understand why they do it.

I wish they wouldn't play those artists on other stations though.



Most importantly...
If they are going to continue to have these single artist stations they should put them on the dopey "Traffic" stations. They are a waste. Any time I've ever listened to a traffic report it's not relavent. Route 1 is bumper to bumper... (I'm on Rt 1, no bumper to bumper). Or... Rt 1 is running as normal... (I'm on Rt 1 and it's a parking lot). Worthless. Put Bruce on a traffic channel. Today.

I don't think it's a bandwidth thing. I think it's because Sirius doesn't want to do a channel update, which is very unprofessional, and the reason that these channels have to be taken off in the first place.

The difference with XM up until the George Straight channel has been they have not taken away another channel ... just added. I don't think too many people would care if they added one or two just that they don't remove their favourites.

Vacation was advertised as "a mix of tropical, calypso, reggae, Hawaiian and other music you'd hear on an island vacation."

It was great!
