Yep, but only cause XM had a head start and better car deals but that is changing. I'm sure the music is good on both, I just want my NFL. ;-D

You can always sign up for both if your budget allows it. That way you can listen to every sport plus either hear hits music or more obscure stuff any time you want depending on your mood! ;-D

I will say I really really miss my sirius. I just couldn't justify the cash when I can't listen at work, and I have a 10 minute commute. :-t :-t :~( :-t

Clearly, Balanced, you need a longer commute.

So do you think they are that much better than Sirius? You worked for them so you should know!

XM certainly thinks they are.

RW, how long has it been since you worked for XM? Both of them have 3 satellites in orbit now. :-?

Here's the orbit pattern for the Sirius satellites.
Image

Both of them think they are better...it's called competition. Personally, I get tired of hearing arguments over which is "better." They both have similar musical offerings - Sirius plays more hits and seems to repeat them a little more, and XM plays a lot more obscure stuff. Their major difference is non-music stuff. By next year, XM will have baseball and hockey exclusively, and Sirius will have football, basketball, and NASCAR exclusively. XM will probably have FOX News exclusively because I don't see Sirius picking it back up...they had a contract dispute, and Sirius didn't go for it.

I don't listen to news on there, and I like football and Howard Stern. Therefore, Sirius was the better choice for my tastes. Each person is different and therefore will like one or the other for various reasons. There really is no reason to argue over which one is "better." It just seems like people are looking for a reason to "one up" someone else and say, "Haha, I picked the company that didn't go under." Why is this necessary? If one controls everything, there's no reason for them to get better. I think another part of the problem is that people have a lot of money invested in both companies in stock, and so they figure if the one they have invested in survives and the other dies that their stock will be worth more. Still, it's all very selfish.

If both companies succeed, a better product will be put out continuously in order to compete with the other. It also will help to stifle normal radio and their generally crappy product. Because of that, I hope satellite takes off in general and people start subscribing.

(I don't own stock in either company if you're wondering.)

I don't know if anyone has kept on the show revelations but those are some doozies. I've got my cousin MP3ing the shows for me so I don't miss the revelations prior to my Sirius radio coming in at the local RatShack. Damn things are sold out near everywhere.
