No I don't work for XM, it would be nice if I did though and I don't own stock. What don't you get about they were forced to add commercials? XM did not add the commercials by their own free will. If you want to blame someone for the commercials on XM, don’t blame XM themselves but blame Clear Channel or the court that made the ruling, not XM as they had nothing to do with the decision and tried to fight it, but they lost. And again, XM had commercials on the music channels since day 1, but removed them around the same time as when subscription price went from $9.99 to $12.95, which was Spring ’05. They had commercials on about half of it’s music channels. Channels 7, 8, 11, 13, 20, 21, 22, 24, 25, 26, 27, 29, 31, 32, 41, 42, 43, 60, 61, 62, 63, 64, 72, 81, 82, 90, 91, 92, 93, 94, 100, and 102 all had commercials, this due to XMs own free will. On the back of the brochure it says, “36 Channels 100% Commercial Free”. Now there’s 69 channels 100% commercial free, I really don’t see what the problem is and in two years when the contract expires expect those 4 channels to be removed all together, but also most likely so with Fox Sports Radio, and all the talk content on Extreme 152 and Talk Radio 165. I am on the offence about it because you think it’s XM that’s behind this, when their not, they fought it and unfortunately they lost, but they have done everything they possibly can to blacklist these four channels. Do I like that they have commercials and have to waste bandwidth on duplicate channels? No. Do I like the bad PR this gets? No. Do I like explaining this to those that don’t understand why they think XM has changed for those worse when in reality they haven’t. No. But what other choice do they have? Good! Like I said above, there’s channels 26 and 30, listen to them. If you really want to go farther, be proactive and call up XM and have channels 11, 21, 22 & 24 blocked from your account as quite a few of us have already done. This ensures: that 1) You will not accidentally stumble upon commercial ridden stations 2) I’m sure XM has some way of tell how many people block which channels they are, if they see a large number of subscribers have those 4 channels blocked that will speak volumes in showing them we reject commercials, if they ever decide to add them back for real. It’s a painless process and takes all of 5 minutes to do. All radios on your account must be powered on in order for them to get the signal to block the channels.
