I don't understand what you're getting at. Channels 152, 158, 165, 166, and 167 all carry mostly content from terrestrial with only a couple exclusives, and 173 is a simulcast of a local Clear Channel station in Cincinnati.

Clear Channel is currently not going to pull out of sat rad. In fact they just revamped 2 of their XM channels and may have another one planned.

here's how i have looked at the situation:

clear channel was not for this merger. but even then, i have heard that cc was looking to get out of the partnership with xm. i don't see them sticking around for much longer after their deals with xm are up.

i hope they don't pull out of sat rad, mainly because of most of their talk stations, conservative as it may be. i think sirius talk needs a huge upgrade.

CCs contract was up this past June or July. It is their option as to how long they stay.

Clear Channel has shown no intention of pulling out of their XM partnership. In fact, they appear to be expanding it. If anything, Sirius XM wants out of the partnership, but they already arbitrated that and CC won. I don't know how they can get out of it now, unless buying out CC's piece of the spectrum is possible, but who knows how much that would cost.

The point is, Sirius XM is not going to give them one bit more than the 409.6 kbps they already have.
