We have what looks mostly like pre channel merge programming minus the people that got fired on the Sirius website, and a half ass attempt on the XM website of adding the the new DJ's to their channel pages without pictures or the times they're on. It looks so sloppy, not to mention it makes it damn near impossible to figure out when, or if your favorite pre-channel merge show or DJ is on the air.

Any idea when they're gonna get this fixed?

Canada Eh!
I don't see why its so hard to have the old XM and sirius websites point to a new siriusXM site and explain everything there.

That would require common sense and forethought being used. Priorities first. Fire 100's of people, merge the channels, and leave such silly things as merging how the company actually operates for last. :D

1 company / 2 websites / 2 customer service centers = Just pure confusion for most potential buyers.

This would also mean the accounting system would be merged and we could all have family plans on our other service radios.

The things that make a first rate, quality company you're proud to do buisness with have never been a part of Sirius.

Just the small things like channel changes without logo updates. Imagine turning on Dish Network and finding CBS had changed to NBC but still said CBS.

The leap year issue, hardware problems, customer service, slow firmware upgrades. This ain't no Apple.

Quality companies strive for perfection in all the details. Steve Jobs knows about the details. Sirius feels like a company run by lazy slackers.

Everyone needs to keep in mind that while this merger was being discussed for several years, the merger was only actually approved a few months ago. Things like this will eventually happen but it takes time. I work for a company that has many internal websites and know first hand that what may seem like simple updates (like merging two websites) is actually not as easy as it seems.

I agree. This doesn't seem like incompetence, but a rush job.
