    I was trying to listen to On Demand when I got this message. It's total crap that I'm forced to listen to the birthday show:

    It kicked me off of the app and I can't log back in. I think they shut everything down except the birthday shit fest.

    How embarrassing for Howard. How far he has fallen. Hope he isn't stupid enough to brag about the number of listeners. :facepalm:

    Ha! Oh yes he is. I'll bet anything that he somehow uses this in his next contract negotiation (assuming they can tell how many listened). :)

    See, Howard underestimated how many people listen to his show. It's actually 100% of SiriusXm subscribers.

    Yup. I got bounced off the app around 2pm. Some kind of error message (but no birthday mention at that time)...

    Does SiriusXM really think they need to shut down all of their internet stream to handle the "traffic" for this Bday abomination?

    Did Wiggy & Fuchwald insist on this to skew the tracking of the listener #'s?

    You'd think if Sirius wanted to get a handle on how many people would stream this, to use for potential contract negotiations, they'd allow subscribers using the internet to tune into whatever channel they want, so that they can get an accurate total on the # of people streaming Wiggy.

    I thought there was a live stream that everyone could access that wasn't tied to the online SXM player. Not a good way to retain the 90% of other subscribers who don't care about the bash.
