    Re: XM/Sirius meger approved

    I have 3 xm and 2 sirius radios (and 2 monthly bills).
    It will be nice to shed a few radios and 1 bill.

    Re: XM/Sirius meger approved

    I am not a subscriber so it really doesn't affect me in any way. The first thing that came to mind however was pricing. Do you guys think they will up their prices a little now since there is no competition?

    Part of the agreement with the Justice Department was there would be tier options for customers and the prices would be frozen for, I believe, 3 years.

    I wasn't a huge fan of the merger because I believe that XM and Sirius have 2 VERY different programming styles and it's likely that Sirius' "FM over satellite" style will win out. The companies brought this upon themselves though by getting into bidding wars 4 years ago. For sports, its a win-win. AS LONG as the merged company is willing to hold on to contracts.

    Re: XM/Sirius meger approved

    I've had both. Sirius kicks the crap out of XM. I am curious to see what happens though. XM did have a couple channels I miss.

    Re: XM/Sirius meger approved

    I used to have Sirius then had to switch to XM when I got my new car. They both have their advantages and disadvantages so will be nice to be able to pick from both lineups hopefully. I do miss having the NFL on Sirius but XM has MLB which is a plus too. Some of the music stations on both are better than some of the ones on the other provider.
