Lightbulb Sirius vs XM internet radio

Today I signed up for a free trial of XM radio online just to check it out and what I like about it is the fact that it shows you what is playing on the other stations to make channel surfing easy. I also like the 8 channel preset. Why hasn't Sirius implemented something like this?

Does anyone know of any upcoming plans to do something like this?

Post XM's web player is better but...

Ive seen XM's web player and it is far better than Sirius but stop using the lame online player and download a sirius widget. You'll have to download yahoo widget setup first.

Or you could download Eric Hjelm's Stream_On for Sirius listening.

I went to that after Sirius implemented that fucked up "Are you still listening" bullshit message and I have been happy ever since.

Have had XM since Apr 02; recently have checked out Sirius On-Line and I really like some of the choices. Am considering getting Sirius On-Line, but maybe I will wait and see what this merger does to the line-ups.

I'm at work and those sites are blocked so I can't check to see if they're still good. But this one should be decent.

I've been in a number of hotels with my laptop so I could listen to anything and XM has ALWAYS performed better.

1- It is more stable
2- It has better sound (I don't have Sirius 128K)
3- There is more content (For example, I can listen to Fox Talk on XM)
4- The layout is much better.

I have a lifetime to Sirius on my Stilleto and have XM in my car but I definitely prefer XM online.
