    Guys,

    I need help. I'm looking at subscribing to a satellite radio service. Any advice on what is better (Sirius and XM appear to be the two leading candidates).

    I'm a big Sirius fan. Howard Stern, NFL channel. They also have NASCAR, Playoby, great comedy. Music is about the same between XM and sirius. You can get all the NFL games as part of the subscription. Great for fantasy.

    Oh- XM has the "Oprah" station.

    A merger is currently being discussed. There was a proposal to Congress for one to occur, but they are deciding whether is constitutes a monopoly right now.

    I believe I read somewhere recently that Sirius and XM are actually merging. I don't have any experience with XM, but my Dad has Sirius for a while. Don't know if it's still the case, but most of the difference used to be in the channel offerings.

    I believe Sirius has all the NFL games, but if they are merging, that might be a moot point now.

    Looks like we crossed posts Riverman. I hadn't heard about the monopoly ruling.

    If I want it in two vehicles, I'll have to subscribe twice right?

    Thanks for the info.

    Second subscription is half price. You can get portable radios that can be used in both cars and plugged into your auxillary jack if you have one. You also get an internet subscription included which is really cool for work or home.

    I originally got if for the NFL but I have enjoyed all of the stations much more than I would have thought.

    The merger was already vetoed from what I have heard.

    As Riverman said.....
    Sirius is great. I have had it for a couple of years now.
    I can't really speak that much on XM, but as he said, NFL, Stern, NASCAR, etc....
    Sirius broadcasts EVERY NFL game. Only problem is that the Titans are the only team that does NOT have an agreement with them. You can still listen to the game, but it is the opposing team's radio team calling the game.

    I own XM and have rented a few cars with Sirius and neither one is better or worse it just depends on what you wanna hear. Howard Stern is a plus for Sirius in my book but I know folks who can't stand him.. Phil Hendry is on XM and so on..
    Fungus53 on XM blows Sirius' punk channel away though!
