The "censored" stations on XM are roughly in the same territory as Sirius. The "XL" designation doesn't mean that there won't be some objectionable song content. Ethel used to have an "XL", it has since been taken away, but I still hear songs with profanity there.

Whichever service you go with, the censored/non-censored formula is about the same.

That's definitely not true.

XL is used to mark ones with "frequent use of explicit language". That's not the same thing as saying that those without that designation never have explicit language, just that it's not frequent.

I've heard plenty of uncensored language/songs on Deep Tracks and The Loft, just to name two channels not marked with an XL...

Again, I said it was my experience, not that it was absolute.

Default Sirius censored.

I dont know if the was posted yet but according to getsiriusinfo:
“Censored is an over reaction…”

I have talked with an anonymous Sirius insider, they tell me that, “There has been a big over reaction…” I asked if the Sprint deal was why some music stations are going to be censored.. I was first told, “It is not censorship”, and the Sprint deal has no impact in Sirius programming.” I asked if it is not censorship what is it?, “Sirius has some stations that only play radio edits of music, this is on the mainstream stations like Sirius Hits One, The Pulse, to name a few.” they told me, “ it is important to note that stations like Faction, Shade 45, and many others do not play radio edits.” Some other key points from this insider, “We want to offer all listeners programming they can enjoy” “every Sirius plug and play radio have built in parental controls so listeners of all ages can enjoy the programming” (please note that this person is not an official spokesperson from Sirius, but it is someone who has some authority on this information.)

From my conversation and other information I have gotten tells me that some of this Censorship stuff, is blown way out of the water, just today when listening to Alt Nation, and there was F*** in a song, and it was there.. My buddy had Sprint and he got the Sirius music on his phone, he also has told me that he heard some F’s S’s and more “bad” words..

From what I’m hearing Sirius is going to put some type of marking on the channel guides, like a "dot" to designate stations that play radio edits…

I think that it is very possible that some of this has blown way up, and we need to just keep a check on Sirius to make sure they follow their Manifesto… I personally do not have a problem with SOME stations play radio edits, as long as Sirius is upfront with what stations play radio edits only, and I think it is important to make it easy for subscribers to know what stations my not be PG, and if a parent wants to prevent their children to listen to it, that is fine. If Sirius provides the information so the parents can use the info as a tool…

Let see how this all plays out..

Default Pissed off in Los Angeles!!!!!!

I havent had time to read everyones posts, but if this censorship thing is really a result of the Sprint thing, then this is bullshit. If you have to censor something, do it to hits 1. And leave it at that.
Hey Sirius, you had better put Alt nation back. I have 3 subs, and a shitload of equipment so that I can get you everywhere I go. If I want censored music I can already get that for free. Now lets get with the program!!!

Hits 1 is already censored...it plays radio-edits. Yes, censoring Alt Nation is complete bullshit being that it is the ONLY alternative rock channel offered by SIRIUS.

I was listening to Only by NIN on Alt Nation yesterday and the F bomb was censored out. Heard Kanye Golddigga today on Hot Jamz and that was censored. Bunch of shit.

Faction definitely isn't censored. I don't listen to it much, but turned it on after reading this thread. Jay Z said it all. I had never heard Papa Roach's Last Resort uncensored. Nice. I might have to add this back to my presets on principle.

Default heard the f bomb on alt nation

I heard the F bomb on alt nation this evening...

Green Days "Boulevard of Broken Dreams"

Is Alt Nation back to uncensored? I hope so... it is lame hearing the songs with the bleeps & crap.

Its not supposed to be.

Is it just me or is SIRIUS having quite a few "accidents" lately with playing censored music on channels other than Alt Nation and Hot Jamz? Someone mentioned Heart & Soul playing an Isley Brothers song censored. Before that there was mention of Faction playing radio-edited versions of Snoop Dogg, Xzibit, and Dr Dre songs. And now SIRIUS Disorder...and probably others. Either this is slowing being spread to other channels or someone is completely fucking up.

This needs to stop NOW.
