    Hi,

    I am excited to see that the Sirius Channels are finally available on Dish. I was just wondering if there is any chance that Dish may add some of the radio stations available on Sirius? The one I would really like to see is BBC world service which would be a nice change from all the other news services- an alternative view point and albeit from the other side of the atlantic! Since BBC World TV is not available in the USA, couldn't they add this station as a substitute?

    Thanks.

    There is always a chance, but at this point no plan. :(

    FYI, the BBC WS feed on Sirius is not the real BBC World Service, it is an all news version of BBC World Service. Many repeats of Newshour and the like.

    A couple of years ago on a Charlie Chat I got through on the night they had BBC America as a guest. I suggested to Charlie that they carry the BBC World Service but he seemed unable to understand what i was suggesting.

    BBC America is lame. I WANT TRUE NEWS! Not the usual local news: A dog climbed a fence & drank pool water. What a waste!!

    Uh, BBC America has BBC World News on everyday. Trying watching it before bashing it next time.
