    Big 12 Sports on XM Radio

    Just got this in my e-mail inbox...

    Big XII Play-By-Play - XM 241 & 242

    Starting with the 2007 season, XM will air select Big XII football games each week, the Big XII football championship, select Big XII men's and women's basketball games as well as complete coverage of the Big XII men's and women's basketball tournaments. Make sure to tune into XM 241 and XM 242 this fall for all the Big XII action including games from the University of Texas and Oklahoma State! With the addition of the Big XII Conference, XM is now the official satellite radio network for the six BCS conferences in college sports - Big Ten, Big XII, SEC, Pac-10, ACC, and Big East. College football programming returns during August with LSU vs. Mississippi State slated for August 30, kicking off what is sure to be a season to remember.

    How can they both be covering it? Usually there is exclusivity contracts. Last I heard about the merger, it was next spring at least. And to get all programming from both systems it would be $16.99 a month. Too rich for me, I like my $8 plan.

    this sounds interesting:

    Tomorrow, XM and SIRIUS will file their joint reply comments with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). The filing will include detailed programming and pricing plans, including two a la carte options. One option will allow subscribers to choose 50 channels for just $6.99 -- a 46 percent decrease from the current standard subscription rate of $12.95. Under this option, customers will also be able to include additional channels for as little as 25 cents each. The second a la carte option will allow subscribers to choose 100 channels and will allow SIRIUS customers to select from some of the best of XM's programming (and XM subscribers to choose from some of the best of SIRIUS' programming).

    A la carte? Wait that can't work can it?!?!? Wake up cable industry, this is what you should be doing!

    This would be great. I love the NFL on Sirius, but I wish I had the MLB channel.

    Now that is what I am talking about....

    I only renew my Sirius (man I love channel 198) when the 3 for 1 offer comes out... $12/month is too much for this product, imo.

    But 6.99 and a couple quarters for a few select channels.... sweet.

    - keep.

    I like the a la carte idea, but I have recently been just flipping through XM channels, and I have found a few I really like. Fred is pretty good, so that has now made it to my rotation. If only had a la carte, I would probably never find these.
