The dance offerings definitely do not reflect what the majority of the listeners want to hear. Dance fans want Remix back!
And people in hell want Ice water.

Chill is one of my favorite channels to listen too. Any consolidation of that with any 'pop' dance channel would not work. It's not JUST a dance channel, they play mellow tracks from all sorts of different genres that have that 'chill' vibe to them.

Besides which, spa has been the most requested channel to have come back. To screw with it now would be alienating MORE listeners than would any techno channel.

People gripe and complain as if SIRIUS is their only option.

Default Channel Shake-up

So there's a shortage of bandwidth? Not Really. Get rid of all the TV audio channels except for CNN, FOX, Discovery and MSNBC. I don't need E, Court TV, CSPAN, ESPN NEWS, etc. Combine Sirius Stars and Sirius Advice, combine Alt rock and Left of Center, combine the two hippie rock channels, combine Movin' Easy and Star Lite, there's far too much rock music, which we can already find on broadcast radio.

What we need is a Funk Channel, Easy Listening Channel, Spanish Jazz, Progressive Soul, World Music, Spoken Word, African Music, Lounge Music, and an Archive Channel featuring music pre-1940. We need more stuff that can't be heard on broadcast channels anytime, anywhere.
