Wouldn't it be nice to have a list of the Sirius|XM channels comparing which is on each and which is on only one or the other?

BAM!!!

I made one! It's the v1.0 and I have a lot of plans for it because it makes a lot of sense. Especially for new-comers to Satellite Radio.

Thoughts? Concerns?

Very cool Jamie!

I have Sirius and my parents have XM... something like this comes in handy when trying to let them know what programs to look out for.
Because they know channel numbers...

Great idea. But, I would think that it would be best to continue improve the following table/thread which is pretty good already:

Thanks, Allanon. The "Channel Differences Table" tries to list compactly only those channels that are on one service and not the other. Jamie is listing all channels on both services side by side, with graphic elements. Each approach has its merits and purposes.

A few things:

- Your Highway channel numbers are reversed. It's Sirius 60 and XM 16.
- Howard Stern channels are Best of Sirius 100 and Best of Sirius 101.
- You seem to be missing some logos for Sirius exclusives. I'm guessing you got these tiny logos from the XM channel guide. You can get the others here: http://www.sirius.com/pdf/channelguide.pdf
- Commercial music channels on XM are grouped off into their own category called More Music.

Good job! It's tough to list those sports play-by-play channels too, since both services do it their own way.

Ah! You're right.
