SXM

After the two companies merged, even after they integrated their channel lineup, they still continued with two separate services. There were receivers for Serius and receivers for XM. Do they still do that?

Hmm No idea. I got a free preview in my car this past weekend and honestly I scratched my head at what the hype was all about. It seemed every time I was in the car, it was the same old songs. I'll grant you they did play tracks OTA radio never does but to pay for it, it's not something I can really justify.

Yep, especially in new cars. But they also put in newer radios that receive the signal from both services (a true SiriusXM radio).

Pretty sure that most all the aftermarket radios being sold as new these days use either just what was XM bandwidth or can use data from both services (a SiriusXM radio).

You can bet that they won't be giving back or turning off any of their bandwidth as long as they stay in business the way they are now.


Wellllll... la de frickin da
