Post Additional Channels with paid Internet sub??

I've been a Sirius subscriber for over a year now, and have generally been happy with the SQ and service. The one thing I can't figure out is if more channels are available with the paid Internet sub. Are you simply paying for enhanced SQ? I listen to more talk than music, and would love to get the NPR talk, CNN, Fox, etc. via the Internet sub, but it doesn't look like they are available even for pay. Anybody have additional information?

Only content that is exclusive to Sirius is streamed on the Internet.

All of the channles you mentioned are outside content that Sirius provides to its subscribers, but they are not produced in-house.

Just to carry Gary's comments a bit further... they can only stream what they own the rights to. So their in-house channels allow them to do this while others such as News, Sports, Entertainment and many Talk channels do not. It would be great if we could get all the channels via WIFI, but that is never going to happen.

Thanks. It makes sense to me, but would be a great feature that I'd likely pay to have. Have a great holiday!!
