Ok I also went on a long car trip and heard edited songs on Faction. Then later in the evening I heard the Bam show and they had the full songs and they were totally uncensored themselves. I'm beginning to think its probably censored during certain hours.

--- Regarding the Alt Nation thing. Nothing against you, but she gave you a retarded answer. Alt Nation isn't a corporation, or a subsidary separate from Sirius. There is no need for a contract when dealing with a department within your own corporation. She may be referring to another legal document, perhaps the one Sirius signed with Sprint, but no legal document exists between Sirius and well uhm Sirius.

I don't believe what she said and I think she had no idea what she was talking about.

Default IMPORTANT - READ

I posted this in another thread concerning the same situation:

Someone theorized earlier in the thread that Sirius is "testing the waters" with this move. From talking to a CSR, that sounds exactly like what they're doing. They told me right now only Alt Nation and Hot Jamz is being censored to test customer response in preparation for the Sprint deal. As of now Faction and the other ones (forgot which ones) are not censored. He said they will change their plans according to customer response (i.e. dropped subs.)

He also said they are monitoring the situation and DO notate accounts that have complained about this; so if you don't like this and haven't complained you're not helping! It is unfortunate, but Sirius IS playing the money game, and if the equation works out positive they WILL censor these channels permanently. Right now it's being billed as temporary, but you MUST complain.
