Yep, I heard earlier that it would possibly replace Dirty Dog- more reason to believe after preview, it will not be available on satellite.

Dirty Dog is available on the Satellites? So if it replaces it, it will still be available on the bird? XM Channel 403 (For those new receivers on XM of course)

No official word yet, but to clarify, all indicators are pointing toward it replacing Dirty Dog Ch 403. An Xtra channel only on SiriusXM Radios- Lynx & Edge & Internet Radio.

2 Main purposes of this preview:

1) Encourage Sat only subs to either subscribe to Internet radio and/or buy a SXM radio

2) Let everyone be able to listen to the Town Hall

What is going to replace CH 102 which was Playboy Radio? Seems possible Comedy Central Radio could go there in May.

SiriusXM just posted this statement on there FB page:

"Then Raw Dog returns...and Comedy Central joins the lineup as a permanent channel on its own number in mid-May."

So this would kind of indicate it will be an actual sat channel

Do you really think Comedy Central would replace Dirty Dog (an Xtra Channel)? Aren't there still a lot of car subscribers that don't have access to Xtra Channels.

Maybe Comedy Central Radio will be available 24/7 on 2.0 platforms with the occasional show and feature on Rawdog for regular satellite users. That's how it's done with some other xtra channels.
