    XM Listeners - thoughts on changed stations

    XM subscribers, what do you think of the new Sirius taken over music channels ?

    I tend to stick to the Rock stations in the 40s and they really changed when XM replaced theirs with the Sirius version.

    I used to love Squiz (XM48), but they replaced it with Octane and it just isn't the same mix.

    I do like Hair nation replacing the old XM41. XM54 -Lithium (the old LUCY) is also a pretty good station.

    Anyone else lose an old favorite or gain a new one ?

    I've noticed that Sirius 60 - New Country is now called "The Highway." Don't think the music has changed, but the ads they have about highways and stuff are pretty stupid.

    Re: XM Listeners - thoughts on changed stations

    So far I do not like it. I really liked Lucy, and this new channel just does not seem the same. I also loved 101-the joint, but the new channel again is just not the same. I will probably get used to it, but so far I hate it.

    Re: XM Listeners - thoughts on changed stations

    Haven't been in my car enough lately. I liked Squizz and Lucy, I'll have to check out the new format. XM41 was 80s metal anyway, so Hair nation is appropriate.

    I like top tracks, the new channel seems pretty similar.

    Re: XM Listeners - thoughts on changed stations

    So here's a new listing

    XM Channel Lineup

    So there's a Playboy channel, which does no good because there isn't any video.

    An Action Sports Music channel which I can only assume to mean they are going to play Who Let the Dogs Out, Rock and Roll Part 2, and Get Ready for This.

    There's is a Margaritaville channel which isn't the same as The Joint, but still has a tropical feel to it..

    Re: XM Listeners - thoughts on changed stations

    I've had both and don't understand why a person would love one over the other unless it's for something original like Howard Stern.

    I've only had XM, but yeah it sure beats the hell out of regular broadcast radio, that is for sure. Its exponentially better.

    I liked XM18 too, I usually listen to 16 though. I hope they eventually let you add Sirius channels ala carte or X number of them for a price or something. The "best of Sirius" package does not tempt me. I used to have Sirius in my last car and wouldn't mind getting a few of those channels back to add to the XM lineup.
