    Could someone tell that to SiriusXM. Prices went up after they merged.

    I still remember when it was blocked 10 years ago, maybe now it might go through because AT&T and others are now doing phone line TV, no one can say that the choices are limited anymore.

    I know they kill each other with price wars over new customers. You sign on for two years, the first at half price or thereabouts, free setup/install, 3 free months of premiums, etc, then after 2 years you switch to the other guys and do the same there.

    I finally switched to dish after 17 years with DTV. It's about $40/mo less over 2 years and offers a few extra features. Much faster receiver. A little worse guide/interface.

    If they do merge it might be just in time for satellite to be obsolete as a delivery medium for tv anyway. Kind of like Sat. radio!

    I'm pretty sure those two have already "merged" before, if you know what I mean.

    If we still had reps, you would have another badge with a ribbon or two.
