yeah, it seems pretty crappy that you have to pay to get the best of xm since you have a lifetime subscription. but also remember you paid for sirius channels, not xm channels premerger.

I think Claire B. is on XM 144, XM Sports Nation.

First, welcome back John.

Second, ready for a Chicago winter?

Third, thought I read somewhere CBL's show was moved to XM 148
since Chris 'Mad Dog' Russo has taken over that time slot on XM 144?

The best of XM package sucks, the only thing on XM worth having is the mlb and sirius subscribers can't get it. I'm going back to XM next week, and pay the extra 4+ dollars a month and get the best of sirius and get the Howard channels and all the Nascar stuff

Ya, but its the best time of the year to have MLB. It's the playoffs and World Series. For us truck drivers 3 to 3 1/2 hour baseball games are a dream, you can get the miles hammered out just relaxing listening to a game...LOL. and now that i know i can get all the daily 128 shows and every NFL game and the Howard channels it's time to go back to XM.

Amen; I'm Glad Someone Else Caught This. I Own A Sportster 5, Fancy Freakin' Thing Isn't Even "Ala Carte" Compatible..

I Called Sirius About It, And The Guy I Talked To Said It Will Be "Ala Carte" Compatible "In Some Time, With This Best Of... Stuff So New"

Hopefully, Sooner Rather Than Later, There Were A Few XM Channels I Liked

Being a trucker myself, I was mad as hell when I called about adding the "best of crap"! All I wanted was a few more music channels and the truckin channel from XM. The road dog 147 or whatever its called sucks to no end!!!!!!! If any of you truckers have ever listened to Dave Nemo on XM, you might agree with me. He's way more educated on our biz. How can a industry specific channel be so out of touch with its own industry? And Evan Lochridge is the worst of all! I, as well as several of my driver freinds, are gonna switch back to XM and get the nascar stuff added. So far, this merger blows!

best thing to do is wait a few months before switching companies.
from my understanding they are going to combine the music channels, and i would assuming all the talk channels within the next couple of months.
your a la carte packaging should help you get xm's trucking channel after they combine all the channels into the correct categories.

Well...being a regular listener of speedway..ive heard numerous times whre Moody regularly admits he dosent know an answer but will try to find the correct one out..too many time in radio you hear a host just blurt out what he or she feels is right even if they are not sure...in fact moody at times even references the holiday inn commercials of old with the "i dont know im not a nascar engineer and i didnt dtay at a holiday inn express"..Moody bring a bit of sarcasm and wit to a great show and mixes in hardcore nascar too..lol..it may take time but im sure his show just might grow on u like fungus...lol
