Default The Bridge Back on 6/24 and Other Changes

Just saw this on Sirius's site... They're updating the channels on 6/24. It looks like they'll finally be fixing all of the incorrect naming and numbering issues. Additionally, The Bridge will be back on channel 12. Super Shuffle is moving to Internet only.

Wasn't expecting this to happen today! Great!

I like that they are at least moving deleted channels to internet only. I wish they had done the same with Vacation and Folk Town.

Wowowowow!

Very nice, they are switching everything around and updating it. Channels are getting moved, categorized right, and put in the right numbers. I like it. The dance stations are all going to be moved in order now, 36-39, it looks like. And Disorder is finally back in the Rock channel numbers. Hurray. Do you think We'll get logos for all the channels too?

And I just shot an angry letter to Sirius about this very problem earlier today! haha.

Thanks, finally, Sirius!

Why is Area 33 and Boombox 34 going to 38 and 39. Sounds like a waste of effort.

Finally!! This good news for Bridge fans, and I have to believe that Sirius did notice the fans that were upset with the Bridge being hijacked repeatedly. I like Super Shuffle also, but will tolerate it going to online only, with a hope that it can come back someday too.

Question

What about Planet Jazz?

Is that gone for good? Not that I listened to it much, but Sirius Disorder has been on channel 70, what used to be Planet Jazz.

Considering all this shuffling of channels I really hope Sirius does an update. It's well overdue.

Will this shuffling of channels be known as "The E-Street Shuffle?"

great news!

The Bridge is returning.

Channel names will be updated.

Disorder will come back to the Rock neighborhood.

Also, it looks like they are finally grouping all of the sports play-by-play in one block, rather than scattered all over the place. it will make it easier to browse through the games.

Somehow, I get the feeling that Channel 10 may just become our rotating single-artist channel. Just a hunch.

I will miss Shuffle, mostly because of the Celebrity Shuffle on the weekend. But the return of the Bridge more than offsets this loss.

Did anyone else look at the New Channel Guide linked from the SIRIUS Channel update page? http://www.sirius.com/pdf/channelguide062408.pdf
12 just says SIRIUS 12 and 10 isn't on there at all. My hunch is the return of the Bridge will once again not be permanent and E-Street will either continue or switch to another of the rotating single-artist wastes-of-bandwidth.

Another interesting listing is 113 as "Special Broadcasts." Also, since I'm not in one of the cities I never listen but all of the traffic channels are separated where some used to share a channel. This coupled with the new Sports Block (which most of my aging radios probably won't get) makes me wonder where the extra bandwidth came from?

Post Merger

I wonder if they were waiting for the merger announcement to do this. It might just be likely timing, but I would like to think its part of a long term Sirius-Xm programming scheme.

Maybe this is so they can donate 12 of the 'traffic' channels to nonprofit and minority by bundling them back together?
