Anyone think nothing happens on the Sirius side tomorrow?

There's a few channels such as Movin' Easy, and others that are going away, right?

Why not make them online-exclusive like Super Shuffle?

+1 not looking good for Starlite and Movin' Easy. The Blend will probably replace Starlite and Escape probably takes over for Movin' Easy. Maybe they'll add some more vocal cuts to Escape.

That is what I am figuring too. It makes me wonder if Escape will remain just a beautiful music channel or if it will be a blend of Beautiful music and Moving EZ. That is sort of the type channel I created on Slacker. It would be great!

Has anybody heard if the Super Shuffle will come back or stay "online only". Would really love to see it back !!!

Have not heard a peep about it, I think the chances of it coming back is pretty grim. Though I really did like the channel.

Not a hint on sirius.com that there are any changes coming. It seems like in the past we've gotten at least some warning there. I'm going to go with the 'nothing happens on the Sirius side' prediction. At least not tomorrow.

The channel descriptions for Starlite and Movin' Easy disappeared. I'd say that's something...

I'm listening to Disorder right now, and Megless has pretty much said something's happening tomorrow. So we'll see.

There are plenty of signs of changes coming. How many DJ's now have talked about their channels moving or them moving to other channels.

This is par for the course with SIRIUS, clearly they are keeping a lid on this much better than the XM side. That has sort of always been the case though. Sirius has always been a very, very closed and secret society within management. I remember when one guy released a schedule in advance of channel changes a few years ago and he got fired. He was a very good friend to SBS.

It seems as though they have cancelled or adjusted every channel on both Sirius and XM that I love. I may cancel my subscriptions.

I can't imagine that they would only do it for XM and not Sirius. It doesn't make sense for them to be a new merged company and not offer the same channels on each service. We will see tomorrow I guess. Rumor is that they will switch XM channels at midnight. I wonder if they will do that for the Sirius channels.

If anything changes for sirius I will eat my hat!!!!

Please link the to the youtube video of this tomorrow in the thread. Thank you :p

In a way I'm kind of glad that Sirius is doing this... gives an opportunity to possibly refresh some of the channels that were just sitting there stagnant for the most part.

Hopefully it'll truly be the best of both on the music side with a totally mirrored service below channel 100.

Well you better be ready to eat it, because changes are coming dawg! We already are hearing DJ's calling the decades channels by their new names. We also have DJ's talking about moving to their new channels and their existing channels won't be there tomorrow, the list goes on and on.
