I suspect that Sirius counts SIR and AMTC in their sub-count. We'll find out about SIR at the next conference call, as the service was only launched in the fourth quarter of 2006.

I dumped XM specifically over the Torch and now Sirius has abandoned us and cancelled The Revolution 67.

I may go back to regular radio. This is so disappointing. I have two Sirius radios and was going to buy a third.

Go back to 20 minutes of advertising per hour, lame three hour morning shows, 200 song playlists and the worst DJ's on earth?!

Not for me! I liked Revo, but even without it, Sirius is a million light years better than FM radio. You'll never find all the genres Sirius offers on FM.

Imagine what a merger could do to the selection in satellite radio. Isn't it nice being able to choose between purchasing Sirius or XM depending on your personal tastes?

You are in love with a genre that is not popular and that happens to many of us. Here is a solution I use for my lost genre fix. Internet radio, Radio Replay software, and a mp3 player. XM keeps some of their channels available online and Sirius needs to do this also.

Either Sirius is providing a service you want to pay for or it is not. It makes no sense to complain.

I used to be one of those that always said, "I'll never pay for radio." Then one day Howard anounced he was going to Sirius. I got hooked up a year before he came and I discovered that there is alot of great stuff on Sirius. Howard, Bubba, NFL ect. I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

But, who are you? Where do you get your money? I looked at your website and it tells me very little about who you really are and what your actual agenda may be.

No offense, but dont you think your efforts would be best better spent on a better cause.

As soon as Howard announced he was going to EH-EH-EH (ha!!!) I signed up with SIRIUS. Never even considered XM.

Ive been a Sirius listener since 2004. I was an Acura technician at the time and all the new TL's had xm radio. I listened during the pre-delivery inspection test drive and had a hard time finding familiar music. A friend in the car stereo business recommended Sirius to me and I gave it a shot. The first 2 yrs or so I have been extremely happy with the programming and variety. Im a hard rock listener and have Octane on the #1 preset on my Starmate. Within the last 6 months that station has gone downhill with repeating songs and a playlist that is old and lacking any kind variety.

I listened to XM on Directv for a few hours the other day and was impressed by the lack of repeats. The deep tracks that they play can be obscure but at least its variety. Hearing the same Primus and Rage songs everyday is much worse. Thankfully Lithium 24 has made me feel that Sirius hasnt totally sold itself out. If I didnt have so much Sirius gear I would give XM a try.

I have four XM radio tuners, and one Sirius tuner. I called to cancel XM on Friday. I am getting two free months through retention.

I cancelled because their sound quality SUCKS. They are big into dynamic range compression and "making it loud" these days. Screw that.

I am very unlikely to continue service past those two months. I leave behind a NavTraffic tuner, MyFi, XM PCR, and standard Pioneer tuner. Oh well, their loss!

I had XM in the car, and cancelled when Howard went to SIRIUS. I have since bought a new car, that came with XM, but in there is my S50. The XM only lasted the 90 day free deal. It's off, and Howard is on (when he's not on vacation)

I listened to FM today and it was worse then I remember... there was 30 full minutes of commercials in an hour of music... glad I have sirius.

I too started out with xm.. and although back when I got sirius I thought their playlists were way too repetitive and top heavy, and I still do to a degree though they've improved quite a bit, xm just didn't agree with me. It's like they took all the b-list songs and played them on purpose and even repeated them and avoided anything mainstream.. this was back on 05 I don't know if they've changed since then...
