Yes sirius' own page is riddled with channel updates. All 4 main graphics on the page(the 4 rotating graphics at the top of the page) are all about new channels. They have new channel guides you can download or look at from the scrolling updates just below the graphics.

They should have done this a couple days ago, but oh well. They were prepared for this change though that's for sure. The info is out there now.

All up to date. Everything you need to know in a nutshell is in this thread.

Again, let me know if I missed anything on the SIRIUS or XM side.

It seems their criteria for keeping/removing channels were:

1. What's more cost effective to keep
2. What's mainstream and popular that's recognizable to everyone

They took off Pure Jazz and replaced it with XM's Real Jazz, awful decision.

It seems strange to me that both services have Pop2K, but Sirius keeps Hits 1 and XM keeps 20 on 20. Why wouldn't both services be the same there??

Well I wish Sirius would add WLW or some of XM's talk because it is so much better than what they have. I might be thinking alone on this, but for a news source WLW is great plus I think Americas talk 158 would have been great aditions. Plus of course FSR would have been nice as far as sports go, but why would anyone want the second most popular sports channel right? I guess we got mad dog lol.

By looking at the new channel guides for both services, it looks like Spirit is gone. I forgot my SIRIUS radio today so I can't verify this at the moment.

Maxim Radio 108 is now Sirius XM Stars 108, Too.

Kind of a bummer it's not on XM, I always liked it. Maybe they'll make it part of Best of Sirius...

at this point there is still a difference between services, probably each having a different hits station, it makes each one different. I would expect them to combine at some point

i am disapointed that fox sports radio did not come over, but that's a clear channel property and none of the cc channels came over, so i'm not surprised. i am glad that there is another full time sports channel on the service. i am not a big fan of the entire espn family of networks anymore after they went with more EP instead of concentrating on the SP of espn.
