    I couldn't give two shits about Stern at this point, and I know XM has O & A. I listen to Sirius in both of my cars, and on my pc, so I really don't know what's on XM. Is it better? Should I look into switching?

    Yeah, there's another thing that makes XM sound better.

    I have the best of XM on both of my radios just for O&A. I think the only way one is better than the other depends upon if you listen to sports, since one has NFL and one has Baseball.

    I have one XM receiver and three Sirius. I have to say O&A are growing on me a bit. They are a watered down Howard Stern Show, but not as watered down as today's version of the Howard Stern Show.

    Personally, I listen to Sirius NFL radio more than O&A and Howard combined during the year.

    I liked XM better, but the cars have Sirius only so I went with that for the smartphone as well. The Sirius music channels aren't that great and there seems to be fewer talk shows I like. And I'll be damned, but Adam Carolla was right. I've heard "union of the snake" 3 times in two days only being in the truck about 3 hours, total.

    I had a Sirius unit since they started then added an XM about 6 years ago. Finally decided to drop Sirius and bought an XM ExpressRMI unit and got the Best Of Sirius added on. It is by far the best performing unit I've ever had and XM does sound better than any of the Sirius units ever did.

    So I guess I need to buy new XM receivers for the cars, right?
