Nice nothing will be lost :)

Special XMAS is cool :)
Nothing will be lost except for UPOP...that is what's lost. Why the hell do they need to put Holly on 2 channels? (29 and 103) How about putting it on just 103 and leave 29 alone? Seriously though....5 holiday music channels??? Isn't one enough?

The issue is bandwidth, XM does not have enough bandwidth to have the Christmas channels and not preempt programming. 103 and 29 are the same channel they're just mapped to two different channel numbers, but they take up the amount of bandwidth for one channel. Same deal as the MLB, NHL and NCAA Play x Play channels where there no sports action going on, the loop is on one channel and mirrored to the rest. Just like with locals on Dish Network, you have your local channels in the 8000 or 9000 channel range then again on their OTA channel numbers. It’s one channel mapped to multiple channel numbers.

And no one Christmas music channel is not enough. :)

It's all good just as long as they don't make Bob Edwards sing Kwanzaa Karols on 133! :p

especially Yorgi Yorginson, Santa Lost a "Ho", and those cute little Chipmunks.

One Christmas Carol channel is TOO much.. I still haven't recovered from hearing them all so much in the 1990s!
I was listening to Christmas music in August on the ride down to Philadelphia. I can never get too much Christmas music, traditional or non :)

I will say this - that's the one thing I've liked SO much about XM.. Those who want their particular niche can have it.. The only time 'my ox was gored' was when Music Lab went on-line-only. But they did add a channel that I liked so it evened out.

I've never been so happy to pay for something that is 70% crap :)

IMO the 30% left over is well worth it. My taste changes just driving to work and back home and each way I find something I like. Maybe some stations I never tune to but their there if I ever want them.
