Default Christmas Channels for 2008 season -- When do they go life?

I remember that last year about this time, XM issued a press release with their Christmas Lineup and then launched XM Holly on November 1st.

Traditionally, I know Sirius launches their Christmas stuff around Thanksgiving.

Now that both companies are "merged" (IMO, more like XM got bought out), anyone know what is going to happen for this year? I hear that the Sirius is launching an uniform, identical music lineup for both services on November 5th. Do you think they'll put the Christmas stuff up then or would it be too early?

Just guessing, but I figure they will start the Christmas music around Thanksgiving again this year. I hope so anyway, Nov. 1 is early.

it looks like XM Holly has said something in the station's myspace blog:

"coming in november." gee -- that's real helpful /sarcasm

I just hope they don't eliminate the Traditional Christmas channel. That stupid channel Sirius has played Christmas Shoes, Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston and that garbage way too much.

If they keep the traditional Christmas Channel, I will be happy. If not, I will just listen to my CDs/iPod when I listen to my Christmas Music.
