I've already written my letter to Customer Service. I think it is time to call and ask a pointed question of the CS reps. If the answer isn't one I like, then I *will* suspend my service until they fix the problem.

Grumpily,

Does anyone know when these channels are going to be censored? I called CS and complained and they told me that there will be 4 channels involved with the sprint censorship. Faction, Alt nation, what are the other 2?

I saw someone say that Alt nation is already censored, but faction is not as of last night when I was listening. I plan to write my letters, and if/when Faction does get censored, I may suspend my account.

Default Censorship on Sirius.

I just sent my email.I will Call them soon.This is bullshit,FUCK SPRINT.
If any1 doesn`t like the music being played on sprint,either don`t subscribe or CHANGE THE FUCKING CHANNEL.The Sirius subscribers come first.I am not a fan of hip-hop because of all the cursing and other dangerous lyrics,so guess what? I DONT LISTEN 2 IT,I CHANGE THE CHANNEL,problem solved.

Who created the manifesto that was linked in the original letter by Jeff?

If this was something that was created by Sirius, why not include that link when emailing Sirius, so that they can see it as well.

I am writing letter and and will email it with this link (after hearing if that was a Sirius creation)

its on the sirius website so I would assume its created by sirius themselves.



And BenDee: Please remove Hot Jamz from that list. I used to enjoy listening to that station until the sprint deal and they started cutting everything out. I want Hot Jamz to go back to the way it was. I found it the only station to cater to all my likings be it hip hop or r & b

Just called Customer Service to voice my opnion and said "Yes, we are getting allot of subscribers calling and very few are for this"- He said please tell everyone you know to call and write as management is taking this issue very siriusly- I will be sending my email and letter tomorrow.
I would not send a letter to Customer service as the responses what others have gotten are "canned" responses. "He said that they feel they can get 20% of Sprint customers to subscribe, but at the risk of losing existing customers he said it's not worth it"
I even mentioned when the agreement with Dish was launched- Dish did not censor channels- they provided rating for some channels- but it was up to the subscriber to lock out channel(s)- what makes Sprint so special?

SISO, thanks for the sig block.

Everyone should read the Manifesto once to realize how far the reality has drifted from the original dream of satellite radio.

Your welcome, but all you need to do now is type "[cens] [/cens]" without the space and quotes of course. You can thank RyanM for that.
