Thread: SiriusXM

  1. #1

    Default SiriusXM

    Well its been a long time coming SiriusXM are finnally merging their music channels.

    What do you all think about this, is it for the better even though you will likely lose some channels that you listen to.

    I am an XM subscriber for my factory deck in my Silverado and I got an email yesterday stating that for another $4 a month, I can add the "Best of Sirius" which is only like 20 stations. I'll pass, and I feel they should already offer them to current subscribers.

    I agree the Best of Sirius is a waste unless your a fan of either Martha Stewart or Howard Stern. I'm just nervous I will lose my favorite XM channels (ethel, lucy, X country) for their Sirius counterparts. My wife has Sirius in her car and it has got some stuff I really like (Jam On, Bill King) But XM has a much deeper playlist. I guess we will know next month how this is all going to shake out.

    I'm looking forward to the combining of channels. I was a Sirius subscriber but just recently subscribed to XM in my Denali. While there are some unique XM channels, I find that the quality of the playlists to be inconsistent. I'll listen one time and like the songs, but the next time they play stuff I don't like. I definiitely like Sirius Chill way better than XM Chill. I also miss the Garage on Sirius--I can't find anything like it on XM.

    I've also noticed a lot of XM channels that are not broadcasting their shows or only doing so at certain times. Perhaps they're getting ready for the change in the line-up?

    I wish my I had Sirius instead of XM. XM has comercials and now they even have DJ's. Whats that all about!!! I guess they need more money than what our subscriptions can pay them.

    Hey All. I had Sirius in the Jeep for years now. Recently sold it and bought a 08 Silverado. Had the XM the first 3 month's and definetly missed Sirius. But loved the satellite aspect of it. Old radio SUCKS! I'm gonna return to Sirius. I'm a Howard Stern guy but there are alot of great stations. Anyone have a 08 Silverado with Sirus installed?

    I hope they do something soon.Ever since XM replaced Fungus 53 with AC/DC radio I have been losing my mind!I could flip on almost any terrestrial channel and get a AC/DC fix if I wanted to.

    Bring the punk rock back!!!

    Is Stern going to be part of the regular line-up? Or will people still have to pay extra?
