A La Carte Customers

A La Carte and A La Carte Gold subscribers will be able to make a one-time adjustment to their channel selections at no charge, on or after May 9th.

 

That is good news to go along with the shifts ...

 

I appreciate seeing enLighten move from 18 (the Limited Engagement channel) to a permanent slot. Channel 18 was not available with a la carte. (I don't listen to Southern Gospel often but it is nice to have the option.)

 

Thanks for posting.

I was hoping they'd  add CBS Sports Radio and possibly NBC Sports radio but as of yet doesn't look to be in their plans.

Clear Channel Sells SiriusXM Stake; Stations To Leave Service
Last Updated on August 2, 2013 at 10:33 am

In its quarterly earnings release Clear Channel announced that it had sold its ownership stake in SiriusXM for $135.5 Million.

With the sale all but two of the Clear Channel programmed stations will depart the XM service on Wednesday, August 28. Departing are rebroadcasts of WLTW New York, WSIX Nashville, and WGCI Chicago as well as CC programmed Sixx Sense, Extreme Talk (home of Todd Schnitt, Artie Lange and WTKS Orlando programming), Talk Radio (carries Quinn & Rose, Rick & Bubba, Alex Jones), ReachMD, Talk Radio (Glenn Beck, Dave Ramsey, Randi Rhodes, Coast To Coast AM), and Fox Sports Radio.

Clear Channel paid for their channel space on SiriusXM ... they have sold their space. It is a situation where Clear Channel has pulled their content - not SiriusXM dropping the channels. But that being said the channels are gone either way.

And considering who owns and distributes CBS and NBC Sports Radio, you likely won't see them on SiriusXM either.

I'm not so much upset that they removed these channels, although I liked a lot of show on them. 

 

These have been replaced by .....

 

NOTHING. 

 

The amount of talk content is simply less.  For the same price.

They added a bunch of Spanish music channels.  Just what I didn't want.

 

I'll happy accept less channels IF they bumped up the bitrate (audio quality)!!!!
