Default Interesting article about Sirius Vs. XM

Found this on-line today...

http://yahoo.smartmoney.com/dealofth...0810&afl=yahoo

While it's not true, they claim Sirius is completely commercial free, and only XM plays ads on some channels. A pretty big mistake to make because it could cause people to subscribe to Sirius and feel they were mislead when they start hearing ads on the talk streams...

Also, and I could be wrong, but I thought Sirius had an option to listen on a boat too, but this article claims that only XM has that... Anyone know if that is accurate?

I think it has been proven already that most reporters dont know what they're talking about

Yeah, when I first start doing my research, I kept reading the same thing, but as I advance into it, I learned that neither really has commercial free radio. I still think satellite will be the future, just a matter of time.

It's too bad we can't order a Terk Sirius Marine Antenna and have it delivered to the reporter and make him pay for it, like a pizza.

If you look at the chart in the article, it clearly states the following in regard to Sirius:

"Music channels are free of commercials. Other content may include advertisements."

Very odd. I wish I had quoted it when I first posted, becuase they have changed the article! It initially only said that for XM and for Sirius it said something like all content is 100% commercial free. Maybe someone pointed out the mistake to the writer of the article... At least it is more accurate now...
