    Ok, since you guys are the experts I am hoping someone can find the answer for me. XM added two new music channels yesterday. As of today they are not on Direct TV. Does anyone know if they will be added to the Direct TV lineup? I know there has to be someone here who has the inside scoop :)

    Just because XM adds channels doesn't mean DirecTV will add those XM channels. DirecTV is missing quite a few XM channels as it is.

    That's the funny part. They where leaked on directv's website before it was on xm's website. The directv website even listed a few other new channels too. It was taken down pretty quickly once people found out.

    Just recieved my bill in the mail. An insert listing the channels shows 2 new xm channels and renaming of some others. I called D*,they said the xm channels are staying the same for now and apologized for the incoorect listings with the current bill.

    Bah. I want to listen to XM 84 Chill.

    Hopefully AOL Radio will carry it.

    I wish they would add Big Tracks. Chill gives me a chill up my spine, but I am sure some viewers would like it.

    I'm an XM sub and I can speak for Chill... It's awesome. Great addition IMO.

    Uh oh. Watercolors? You mean the New Age music channel?

    Chillout (or downtempo / trip hop / house / nu jazz, if you prefer) in NO WAY should be confused with New Age, much less Electronica. I prefer to think of Chillout as being in a league of its own.

    I am so happy XM finally got around to adding it to their programming.

    Audio Visions in New Age, Watercolors is Contemporary Jazz.
