    Re: New to XM

    35 - XMU, plays a wide variety of indie. This is about 90% of my listening time.
    36 - Alt Nation, XMU's sister station that plays more popular alternative and a little harder stuff
    50 - The Groove, Funk and R&B
    44 - Hip Hop Nation, Mostly hip-hop from the 2000s with some 90s classics thrown in

    Re: New to XM

    This prompted me to look at some subscriptions and availability with smartphones.

    Why would I need to pay an extra $3/month because I already own the equipment and am getting the same content as others.....

    And whats the difference between Xm and Sirius?

    Re: New to XM

    91 is a college sports network that is a little more anti-ESPN. I like Eddie George a lot. Although it's really SEC centered.

    Edited to add:
    XM and Sirius merged (Sirius bought XM). So they're one in the same. It's just that some units carry the XM logo vs Sirius. The channels merged a few months ago. I actually liked the XM channels better (more sports.)

    169 Fox sports radio


    Another note. If your subscription comes up... just offer about 6 bucks per month instead of what they ask. They will accept it and have for me for the last 3 years. Works every time. Saves you about half price
