Pretty sweet deal 4 those of us that have it, I think? I have Sirius in one car and XM in the other and was thinking about putting both in one ....but now I don't have to!! It'* weird...the way their channels differ....is TOTALLY opposite(sp?) No REAL alternative channels on XM...nor a good Drum & Bass channel. It'* pretty much like a TV....sometimes nothings on u want to watch/listen to.

With these two merging wheres the competition?
HD Radio
HD radio is NOT competition, HD is not subscription, all stations are independantly owned and operated, broadcasts are regional, and it is subject to all FCC laws the same as AM or FM


I'll be happy if i will get to listen to opie and anthony soon on sirius, and wifey will still get to keep her howard

FCC is suppose to step in when something like this happens. Yet, I'm not holding my breath.
