    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?
