That sucks, hope they have holiday music next year like Sirus XM has been providing us. Oh well
They'll have holiday music. DIRECTV music channels have always included holiday music, even before they were provided by XM.
I,would be disappointed a little if Directv moves away from XM/Sirrus the sound quality is great.Especially notice it when I,switched from Comcast over 3yrs. ago from their music choice which they use.It would be nice if Directv keeps the service to add Seriously Sinatra which,would fill the void over a year ago when XM,s standards was dropped .
Music Choice was better quality, IMO. I am not all that impressed with XM sound quality.

Seriously, though, I'll withhold judgment until I know how the replacement turns out. I have to assume it's a cheaper alternative for D* to carry.

Sonic Tap... this is what used to be called Digital Music Express (DMX), right? The service that used to be on Primestar way back when? The same service our cable company (Comcast) once had before switching to Music Choice (what DirecTV had before going to XM)? I have no idea how it's like now, but I kinda liked it back when I last had a chance to listen to it some years ago.
Yup, from http://www.sonictap.com/About.aspx.
Sonic Tap is a DMX project. DMX, the first music service to license and program original artist music, has been creating unforgettable brand experiences for commercial environments since 1971. DMX's music services can be heard in tens of thousands of locations every day, including......

I won't really miss them, just use MediaShare to listen to all the MP3's on my server.
Looking at the new offerings...it might just entice me to consider using SonicTap for some of their new content.
