    As far as Sirius - if it isn't a music channel on the Sirius satellite service (not a stream only channel, not an XM channel, but a Sirius music channel) don't waste another word expecting it to appear on DISH. What we have is a sampler ... if you want more channels subscribe to Sirius or XM.

    As far as the DISH music channels - these are from the Musak service intended to be used by businesses on their PA systems. I would not expect any changes in the lineup. The content is driven by the businesses, not DISH. Businesses that want something different can subscribe to Internet delivered versions of the Musak service.

    Some of the channels are on DISH ...
    920 Environmental (Musak Only)
    928 Moodscapes
    932 Metro (Musak Only)
    965 Ambrosia

    DISH also has the following (exclusive to Musak)
    921 Reflections (Musak Only)
    922 Foreground Music One (Musak Only)
    942 Toned (Musak Only)
    948 Destinations (Musak Only)
    949 Musak 2 (Musak Only)

    If you want additional Musak channels get a Musak subscription. Some channels have always been exclusive to Musak subscribers.

    Musak is not for us. It is for their paying customers.

    If Sirius changes their satellite music lineup then DISH will follow. Three important words: Sirius (not XM), satellite (not streaming), music (not talk). Those changes will be driven by Sirius serving their subscribers. DISH does not control the content of the Sirius music channels.

    bluegras, do you not understand that you aren't going to get all the Sirius channels on Dish? It isn't a hard concept to grasp.

    No Allen, DISH will not be adding the Internet channels. Those are for people who subscribe directly to SiriusXM.

    I have a SiriusXM subscription ... and I cannot suggest strongly enough that if you really want the additional channels you keep posting about in your repeated threads that you make the investment and get your own subscription.

    Dude seriously I have an idea...give it a freaking rest! You are going to get the same answer over here as you did over on Satelliteguys. What you have on your receiver now is what you are going to get. If you want more Sirius channel then spend some money and subscribe with Sirius.

    I got Sirius in my new car last year after having what Dish has given us for years. The sound quality over Dish is superior to the Sirius radio for the exact same channel.

    As far as what Sirius channels we get on Dish versus what I get in the car, a few music channels are exclusive to Sirius (probably because they were from XM). For example the NYC top 40 station "Z100" is only available on my Sirius radio. OTOH many of those Spanish music channels are streaming/online channels (not on the car radio) on Sirius XM but we get then on Dish.So it's a trade-off.

    The "40's on 4" channel is temporally "The Billy Joel Channel" (in case you did not already know) on both Dish and SXM.

    As far as Christian music channels go, there are several on both Muzak ans SXM. As far as a Polka channel goes...forgetaboutit! That will never happen. Perhaps this channel exists somewhere on the net as a streaming service, but there is not enough popularity to make it available nationwide over any satellite platform.
