I don't think they could even if they wanted to. I think that would involve another Dept. of Justice/FCC decision which I don't think anyone would want :nono2:

No merger, but how about a bundle (you want fries with that? I mean, Sirius with that?)

Maybe, according to remarks make Wednesday by Liberty Media CEO Gregg Maffei. On a call with industry analysts discussing his company's quarterly financial results, Maffei reportedly said: "One could talk about or imagine bundles, probably the $80 [per month] DIRECTV product offering free trials of the $11 [monthly] Sirius XM product more likely than the other way around. I certainly think those are things we have talked about."

Yes they did mention may be doing that, but I'm an XM lifetime sub now so it wouldn't help me a bit :nono2: Plus my D* bills are already too high to have anything else added :D
