Sirius has NFL football XM Has baseball, I would compare channels and choose whichever one had more channels that I liked.

We have XM and listen to it non-stop across the country. It especially comes in handy for late night driving.

XM breaks up the 40's 50's and 60's better than Sirius.

I thought they'd merged. They still have separate offerings?

There's talk, but no merge as of yet...that I know of.

I'm a Sirius user from the get. Collage football, NASCAR, good comedy stations, and the music that I like to listen to (including electronic trance, CW, Jazz, etc.).

National Public Radio (with some over seas coverage). It also has a nice variety of talk stations too.

I spend a fair amount of time in my car, get it through my computer, and have a house hold radio. I'm a life-time subscriber so don't pay any monthly fees and have more than covered the initial cost amortized over the years I've had it. I basically am listening for free right now.

My satellite dish gets XM. Not as much as I'd like. We usually listen to the 70s, 80s, or Broadway. I've gotten into the habit of tuning in "Audio Visions" which is kinda new agey melodonic music sometimes with nature sounds (rain or whales or whatnot) before I take a nap. It helps me relax better than listening to songs with lyrics or commercials. (Although the creepy girl doing the travel motif can make me jump sometimes.)

I am a Sirius guy...
Howard 100 and Howard 101, great music. I hardly ever listen to the sports. Once you have satellite radio there is no going back.

I am a life long music freak. I am not the slightest bit interested in sports, or talk radio. I do not go anywhere without my ipod. My ipod has All of the music that is important to me for over 50 years, some from the 1950's and some brand new releases. I told my wife to play my ipod at my funeral, and then throw it into my coffin just before they lower me in the ground. The thought of pay radio is foreign to me, and no pay radio station can come close to the 2,000 hand picked selections I have on my ipod.

Dig it.

I actually have Sirius but am not a lifer. I don't know if they still offer that? As far as the computer, I used to listen to Howard but now they charge extra. I don't like that part of the deal...

What do you mean they charge extra? I have my $12.99 subscription and listen to Howard online? You can listen to most of the channels online with yor basic subscription.

I listen to my XM radio every single day and I really enjoy the 40's 50's and 60's music and deeptracks is awesome as well.
I enjoy the fact that I can hear songs that NEVER get played on any commercial radio station that I listen to and not only the popular stuff but music that is not popular (with the masses) and never really got much airplay even in their time.
I also listen to channel 164 which plays the old-time radio shows that were popular before television was available to the public.
I can never really enjoy commercial radio now that I am hooked on XM Radio.
I don't think there is much difference between XM and Sirius except for some of the sports and talk stations lineups.
I think most people tend to be faithful to whichever one they have and consider theirs the best. Sort of like the PC and Apple fans, each one slams the other. I say just get on the Xm or Sirius bandwagon and enjoy the true freedom of choice and get away from the over commercialized free radio.

See, this is my problem with my satellite provider. We have XM, we have the 40s thru the 90s, various jazz stations and religious music stations, but we don't carry the old time radio show station! Man, I would so listen to that. (I once ate 10 boxes of Corn Flakes to get a set of records of the old Superman radio show!)

I thought they wanted you to download the howard stern media player and they charged for that? In the begining everything was fine but then it changed and I haven't loged on since. Are you saying that there is NO additional cost?

Yeah....You can download the Howard stern media player, but you do not have to.
Just go to http://www.sirius.com and click on listen online. Once you log in you can listen to all of the music channels, Howard, and a lot of other things.

I have XM Radio on my TV Satellite also. They provide an abreviated version of XM Radio. You need to subscribe to XM and have an XM radio to get the full service and to be totaly mobile.

Sirius and XM are for suckers.


AM radio, that's where it's at. FM is for suckers.
Magic is doing improbable things with odd items that, under normal circumstances, would be unnessecary and quite often undesirable.
