Customer Service mentioned that they are getting very positive feedback from subscribers for carrying Radio 1.

Radio 1 will be launched this week on Dish

Radio One's signal appeared on Dish Netwrok the day it started on Sirius. Probably Dish hasn't updated the channel lineup for some of their receivers, that's why some people think it's not on Dish yet.
Anyway, while this station can be heard by hundreds of thousands on Sirius, I don't think the fact that it's carried on Dish Network adds more liteners. I believe the number of those out of the 8 million Dish subscribers who use their satellite receiver to listen to audio at home is insificant, probably less than a thousand.

The channel is not available to the general public until this Wednesday.
Also how did you come to the conclusion that only "less than a thousand" out of over 11 million subscribers listen to Sirius??- Where is your proof??

You'd be surprised. Friends of mine with Dish put Sirius on for a party. They told me that they listen to it often.

OK, maybe two thousand then, maybe even 20 - still doesn't make a difference. I don't know anybody (who does NOT write in web radio forums) listening to radio from satellite dish. Whatever their number, it is miniscule. The Sirius satellites are the only real thing when it comes to potential radio listeners.

Everyone I know that owns Dish listens to music for partys or ambiance while cleaning working etc. None of them have Sirius so it's all just bare speculation based on our peer group.

I'm another that used music from directv back in the day. Commerical free music vs. my radio, hmm, I guess I have been a satellite radio user since 1998 and didn't realize it!

I admit that I wasn't even aware that there was a BBC 1 station before Sirius made the deal. But I think it is a very good addition to the lineup. It is in my regular station rotation already. Good job Sirius!! Best content addition on the musical side since I got the service.

Hell, even I use my Sky PVR digibox (our satellite provider over here) to listen to Radio 1, I even record the Chris Moyles Show on it to listen when I get home cos I miss most of it.

Having said that, the box is plugged into a DD 5.1 amp so I don't need the TV on to listen, just hit 851 on the remote hehe.

He probably just forgot that they we not live but he also needs to stop and thing just how small his audience in the USA really is. Sirius has about a million subscriber, I think. What percentage of then are ever likely to tune in to an obscure channel that talks in a funny accent about things they don't understand (i.e all the references to Space on Ibiza this past week) ?
One thing I've enjoyed about listening to Radio One is that it's allowed me a glimpse into British pop-culture that goes beyond what we normally hear about in the States, namely the Royal Family and assorted Britcoms.

You're right, it took me a while to appreciate what in the heck "Abeetha" was.

Other humorous/interesting things I've learned:
  • Big Brother UK is a much more popular show than the US version ever was,
  • Lots of people love to "text from their mow-biles,"
  • Entrance/standard exam results for university appear to be a HUGE deal
  • How often "fancy" is used as a verb.
Brilliant.

A lot of countries just don't let anyone choose to go into a specific profession, meaning you have to score well to continue advanced studies. Otherwise you don't go.

I almost shat my pants when I heard Big Brother being chat up. Thank god it's not the USA version. I am forced to watch the end of it when INXS Rock Star comes one. The first TV show I have watched in a looooong time. Love it.

The brits rightly call mobile phones, get this "Mobiles" amazing.

One thing i have to point out here is everyone is waiting for the song title strip to start showing up on our receivers. I do not care if they ever do as seeing Radio 1 is commercial free they have the time to tell the listener what song is playing at the start and finish of it ,unlike US stations on fm that are too busy trying to cram 16 commercials down our throat in 5 minutes. Radio One is the best thing Sirius has done .I have it on all the time ,thier playlst is available on their website and you can get cd's and records form their playlist on EBay if you want to bid on them. We here now have access to some of the most awesome music on the planet. To learn something different about European culture doesnt hurt us either. This to me is one of the Greatest revolutions happening to American radio. And to have it on Dish Network on 6097 as well means I cant ask for better.This is just one more reason Sirius is awesome and is making US broadcasting comglomerates [like Infinity ] crap their drawers. American FM radio cant touch this.Wait till Canada comes online!!!!!!!!!!!

See, I'm just the opposite. Big Brother is my favorite TV show and I cannot wait every summer for it to come on. (I haven't watched the INXS show because it is simply on too much. I can't keep up with it). But I absolutely am addicted to Big Brother and I think it is by far the best reality show.
Anyway, with that being said, I believe Big Brother began in the U.K. first (the same year it later debuted here in the U.S.) It has also been done in various other countries including Mexico.
Oh well, say what you want about me, but I LOVE Big Brother and I also love Radio 1 for that matter. (Man, I just wish the BBC America TV network would carry the UK version of Big Brother. I'd definately watch it too.)

You like big brother, cool. I look at it and want to smack that one guys hat off his head. Anyone who likes Radio 1 or Sirius is OK> As for INXS, just the performances alone on Tuesday are worth an hour. Pure delight.

Pesonal Opinion. You have the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland along with Ireland are one thing. And Europe is another.

Yes, I would agree that last night's INXS was off the charts. The cool thing is that we share that show with the Brits as well. I've never hear it mentioned on the "Beeb" though?!
