I am confused. Is this the new lineup for XM subscribers and Sirus subscribers?

As an example does XM pick up the Elvis channel; Margaritaville channel?
I have XM.


Also will Directv carry Margaritaville ?

As much as I'd like to see the Clear Channel stations gone, I would really miss some of the talk, especially Fox Sports and some of the programming on Talk Radio and America's Talk.

I don't see 82 The System or 83 Chrome on there :(


I'm missing two favorites as well. TOP TRACKS is gone (I think) and Audiovisions. Guess everyone took a bit of a hit.

I just committed to a three year xm deal a couple of weeks ago. While I probably would have done so anyway because of the sports, it would have been nice if they had told me that there would be so many changes to the music lineup. Hopefully the "rock" and "pop" stations aren't too different.

Top Tracks is a name change, now Classic Vinyl I believe. My presets stayed and only channel names have changed.

I know I have heard a few references to channels like "BPM, on Sirius xx and XM81". I just did not remember what they said for the Sirius number, but it does look like many of teh changes are on both channels.

Of the 12 presets I have on my car, 3 are to channels that are totally gone, 3or 4 are channels that moved and 3 or so are to channels that have changed names (and probably changes in playlist) but stayed in the same place. TH eonly one I know that stayed more or less the same is BPM81.


DirecTV, please don't make me have to go back to watching March Madness in standard Def! Oh, and the usual begging for AMC and BBC America. You are so close to actually being the HD Leader.

Was listening to XM 54 today (Was Lucy, now is Lithium) aside from the name and the bumps inbetween songs, nothing seems to have changed. Did't get a chance to listen to anything else, my wife took over once she saw XM35 is online and is Xmas music......

Yeap, The Beat is gone on Sirius. I was just driving along and then I realized that they were not playing the "right" songs on 36. :(

I don't like what I hear. So if nothing changes I'll be gone by the time the subscription is up for renewal. I'll give Slacker.com a try.

Leaked to Orbitcast, prettty much exactly what has already been posted, a few of the channel logos are a little different.

Finally, 1stWave comes to XM. I hope it's the same as the Sirius 1stWave. :)

Regardless of what channels came or went or whatever, it really is BULLSH*T that they just pulled this out without giving the subscribers any warning. I could have sworn that during all the merger talk both sides repeatedly stated that no one need worry about losing their favorite channels.

Of the 4 presets we had on our car, all 4 are changed or gone. Although, it sounds like some channels have just been renamed.

I'm going to give the new channels a try, but I think if anyone wants to cancel, they shouldn't wait until their subscription runs out, they should call and cancel and demand their money back pro-rated because they were sold a product/service that was then switched out from under them.

I was wondering what was happening last night. I hadn't logged on yesterday. My MyFi went silent and had "loading" on the screen. I hope the keep the "Wash Cycle" on the Blues channel.

Here is a side by side channel change chart from XM

and the Sirius version

It looks like they have the XM decades channels for both systems

I should have been more specific. The loss of The Virus channel effects DirecTV. I have no idea about XM subscibers

I'm going to wait because things are in flux. BPM may change to something in between what it was in XM and what The Beat was in Sirius. Who knows? I'll give them time for things to settle and for me to, maybe, learn that I enjoy the new channels

O&A are alive and well, those are just the changes that have been made.
