I'm shocked about Upop, I didn't think a WorldSpace channel would go two years in a row. Last year it was The System.

You and me both. I don't see a new for all these x-mas channels to start with. Does anyone know if sirius does this?

Yes but to a lesser extent. Last year Sirius had two full time Christmas stations. Starlite, the AC station on Sirius played traditional Christmas music and The Roadhouse, a Classic Country station played Christmas Country music from Thanksgiving thru Christmas. However, there were a lot of specials on the other channels that were not preempted.

Did Holly replace UPop on DirecTV yet? Holly is live on XM right now, but UPop doesn't go away until the 23rd.

Lame, we have to pay extra for the Christmas music this year?

I don't get U-Pop so I'm assuming I won't be getting Holly.

Any updates on Holiday Traditions on Directv?
Well, since DTV customers receive XM Radio channels, the XM web site lists the holiday replacement channels at: http://xmradio.mediaroom.com/index.php?s=press_releases&item=848

The big task is to find out what of those channels DTV carries.

First I noticed was:
Special X-Mas on 848.
A Classical Christmas on 866.
Music City Holiday on 809 (maybe).

I guess that's a start.

I'm curious though why D* would use two channels for each of the 4 XM holiday channels they are carrying. Why would they not choose to utilize one of the duplicate channels for Holiday Traditions.

i don`t know unless it was away for all subscribers of the total choice package to hear the christmas music also since some of them can`t get them in the 800 channels. since they don`t subscribe to the Total choice Plus channels.
