    Heavily promoted new channel...promo spots on every channel...e-mails hyping it...not that I give a shit, but I CAN'T RECEIVE IT on my old Sirius One in the car. Supposedly on Ch. 115? Explain to me why my radio gets 114 and 116 but they can't give me 115? Same logic explains why my radio gets 93 and 95, but can't get 94? They expect me to buy a new radio? Not in this lifetime!

    I have the same problem with my old Xact Visor radio. I called SiriusXM and was able to speak to a technical person who told me the old radios don't have sufficient bandwidth to handle the new channels. It sounds like all the new channels are like that and I'm guessing the old ones will eventually be converted, so we'll all probably have to get new radios at some point. By the way, they gave me a credit of $18 on my account to compensate me (somewhat) for the inconvenience, so you may want to call and inquire even though you know the answer.

    When they tell me i can't get certain channels on my old radio, such as MLB or O+J which are in the 200s, I almost buy it, though they could move Opie if they wanted to. They can't possibly explain why they can't provide 94 or 115. Had no problem opening up 102 for Andy Cohen...no logical reason! Greedy motherfuckers! Again, I DON't GIVE A FUCK about the new Fox channel, but why do they hype it to death, then not offer it to old receivers?

    Bunch of fucking thieves! To this date they charge extra for XM subscribers to hear Howie (suckers!) or for Sirius subs to hear O+J. Are we one company or two, Robin? This merger will benefit the subscribers!

    why would anyone listen to Fox News.

    Kind of defeats the purpose
