Every once in a while (lately, that means about once a day!), I tripped across this article on Slate: http://www.slate.com/id/2211158/ Gist is that S/XM should go internet only. My rather strong reaction is, this is TYPICAL of eastern/urban thinking. Right up there with 'nobody needs dbs satellite, cable offers all one would want', therefore illegal restrictions (deed restriction through local and state laws prohibiting dishes are just fine). I live in a state (along with at least 10 others) that have spotty cell phone coverage as it is; LIVE news and decent, DJ run music channels is a godsend (Sirius sub since 2002). Not to mention spotty high-speed internet coverage, due to the telcos/cablecos getting the state legislatures to 'lock-in' their 'plans' (and thereby no competition) that they have never actually built.
