If you subscribe to XM premium online, is it the same as Sirius premium online? Same price, sound quality and channels? Any differences?

Yes they are the same I think, I never compared. I know XM gets like hits one, not sure if the Sirius side gets 20 on 20. Price is the same!

When Sirius XM first merged I would hear popping and distorting on the streaming channels on the XM side, while I didn't hear this on the XM side. Here recently though they seem to have cleaned up this issue as I not noticing it any longer!

i have Sirius Online premimuim and I get more online musicwise than on the sats. Sirius get's XM's channels (20 on 20, the groove, and SiriusXM Bootlegs and cinemagic) SO I listen via WiFi on my SL2 since I get these channels on sirius that I can't get on Sirius via the Sats. So i think they are both the same service online. I could be wrong. But I do know Sirius does get some Xm content online.

There are still some online streaming channels that are exclusive to either XM or Sirius. For example, I'm a Sirius subscriber with premium online listening added to my account, but I would only be able to listen to MLB Home Plate if I had the Best of XM package on my account.

Yes, this is true. I forgot to point that out. But there is nothing missing from either service online assuming you have Best of.

Too bad I can't use my Sirius info to log in @ XMRO. (That probably comes after the billing stuff gets combined, but the "best of" stuff would also be part of the issue why I can't.)
