  • XpressRC From XM Pumps Out The Tunes

    XM is heating up the competition for portable satellite radio players by offering a new player called XpressRC. Delphi will be manufacturing the player itself and the offerings aren’t too shabby at all. You’ll find it has a split screen so you can have your favorites stations to choose from as well as your current song information displayed at the same time. The XpressRC will also… Read More

  • XM and Sirius To Offer Cheap Al A Carte Offerings

    Not a ton of info here, but apparently if this XM-Sirius merger actually goes through, you’ll be able to get your satellite radio on for cheap. Both companies plan to offer a low-cost $6.99 package that nets you 50 channels, as well as a $16.99 deal that would offer the best from both worlds. You’ll also be able to add and remove channels as you see fit. Sounds like a win for… Read More

  • Sirius Live Earth Feed Came From XM

    For anyone who thought that merging XM and Sirius together would be a royal pain in the ass, this is the proof that it’ll be as easy as Kevin Bacon landing a role in a crappy flick. Seems XM was set up with over 60 crew members at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ and London for Live Earth. The crew taped all the music and conducted several interviews which were then broadcast… Read More

  • Frank Sinatra To Host Sirius Show

    Looks like Frankie is being raised from the dead. Sirius is debuting a new weekly program called “The Chairman’s Hour” that will be hosted by Old Blue Eyes himself. Producers have meticulously collected tons of clips of Sinatra speaking and will produce a show in which Frank plays some of his tunes and talks about his work as a musician. Through the use of… Read More

  • Volkswagen And Sirius Strike Deal

    Looks like Sirius and Volkswagen have successfully completed a deal that will make Sirius Satellite Radio standard in select VWs from 2008 to 2012. The Touareg 2, New Beetle, New Beetle Convertible, GTI, and GLI models will all have Sirius included standard, though you’ll still have to shell out the monthly bucks for a subscription to the service. Thankfully, VW includes a 3-month… Read More

  • XM, Sirius Cite 'Diversity' To Promote The Proposed Merger

    XM and Sirius are trying to merge (or hadn’t you heard?) but have encountered a lot of resistance in both the government and the press, to say nothing of legions of angry, everyday consumers who are also opposed to it. So the companies bought an advertisement to show just how “diverse” their support is. To see it… Read More

  • XM Offering Credit For Downtime

    You may have heard that XM was down for almost a whole day and then it came back online. When a service you shell out money for on a monthly basis goes down, you’d obviously expect a credit of some sort to occur so that subscribers don’t go canceling their subscriptions. Luckily, XM is smart enough to know this and is offering two-days of credit to subscribers. If you want to get… Read More

  • A Friend Of The Devil Is A Friend Of Sirius

    Sirius will be adding a new station to its lineup consisting of only Grateful Dead tracks. Set to debut this summer, the station will feature classic tracks, new tunes, unreleased recordings, special shows hosted by members of the band, bootlegs, and of course, live sets. This is not the first time Sirius has given a band its own station. Elvis has his own station and so does Howard Stern. Read More

  • XM/Sirius Merger Irrelevant?


    According to Wayde at Gizmo Cafe it is and I’m inclined to agree at this point. Had the merger produced a more unified service, it would have been something of note, but since they’ve decided to still play it separate, the combination has no real effect at all. Anyway, you should check Gizmo Cafe for a pretty amusing video about the situation. Wayde wisecracks through his… Read More

  • The Futurist: What An XM-Sirius Merger Means For You


    Woah. So XM and Sirius are looking to form a more perfect union. And, at long last, Howard Stern and Oprah fans will have something in common other than being married to each other. Of course, there are lots of regulatory hurdles that could keep the ink from drying on the deal (a failed merger by satellite TV providers EchoStar and DirecTV immediately comes to mind), but lets assume, for… Read More

  • Breaking: XM And Sirius Merge

    ABC News is reporting that XM and Sirius are merging and are almost complete. The actual merge is expected today with a press conference expected later in the afternoon. Earlier, there were some rumors that XM and Sirius wanted to merge but wouldn’t be able to due to the FCC. Though the FCC will be giving both companies a hassle, they should be able to work it out in one way or… Read More

  • XM And Sirius In Talks For Merger

    Whoa there. Out of nowhere comes an article on Ars that claims XM and Sirius are in “low-level merger talks” with each other. This would be absolutely fantastic for customers of the two services. You’d be able to get tons of music, better service, Howard Stern and Opie & Anthony, your favorite sporting events, and a ton of other features all from one provider. Not to… Read More

  • Cingular Adds XM Channels To Service Options Along With Music Subscription Services
