The price of a share of stock means nothing.

Look up relative market caps.

The price per share really doesnt mean as much as you may think. Suppose XM had 1,000,000 shares @ $15 and Sirius had 20,000,000 shares @ 1.50. Which company is worth what? I could say XM had stock valued at 100,000 per share, but if I only had 10 shares of it out there, its only 1million value. Sirius might have a billion shares, and at $1 per share, its value is greater. Justa slight analogy.... its not XM's price vs Sirius price, lots more to consider.

This is so freaking funny.... LOL Two streams have repeats, so that makes the whole SIRIUS service bad. These folks that only listen to one or two streams just amaze me. 100 channels and all I find interesting is two streams. mch, you really should just pay that $75.00 disconnect fee dude... SERIOUSLY!!!

I don't really find it that amazing that people only listen to the types of music they enjoy.

I find it more amazing when my live in girlfriend puts out. :\

ROTFLMAO!!!! OH That was good......

Well, I guess you are right, just because I have expanded my horizons doesn't necessarily mean everyone else is going too.

Well, I hate to break it to you, Dabster, but there are many many more streams that have endless repeats. I personally listen to Soundscapes (my absolute favorite) and the Jazz Cafe. Soundscapes, which could be so damn good, plays far too many repeats. Should I hear the same song three times a day? On a non-hit type format? Don't think so. In a genre that has thousands and thousands of songs? Don't think so. On the Jazz Cafe, many many repeats. I had occasion to rent a car from Avis recently, and had my first listen to XM. Obviously, since the kind of music I like is New Age & Contemporary Jazz, I tuned in to Watercolors and Audiovisions. In the time I listened, which was a period of two days, I heard NO REPEATS! I heard some very interesting music, and some I wasn't aware of. These channels, of course, had no commercials, so it was similar to Sirius. Let me tell you - I was impressed. I'm a big Sirius fan, and want them to succeed badly, but if the repeats don't stop, I'm going to have to get XM. XM really doesn't have a station like Soundscapes, though. Very tough decisions here. If only they'd stop the repetition.......

Andrews, I think you misread my post, I was speaking of mch saying he listen to two streams. However, I agree there are way too many repeats on way to many streams, you will get no argument from me. These repeats are going to send folks to XM, which seems to have curtailed their repeats dramatically in the last few months. At one time XM had this same problem. How do I know, I was also an XM subscriber for several months. If SIRIUS doesn't fix this I too will be considering an XM Roady when they are released come mid September.

I'm with you Dabster! I'll consider a Roadie myself. Maybe if enough of us do this, Sirius will get the message. And all the services will improve.

Oh come on DABSter, you know you want to get a Roady and are just looking for a justification so you can have the latest toy

Not taking away from the repetition argument, just think you might fall into the PNP gadget freak category
