    If you throw away all of the Similar channels such as America Right and Patriot.
    Toss the religious channels.
    And toss out the weather stuff.
    And toss out the foreign channels
    And throw away the stuff available in the Best Of packages
    And toss the seasonal channels

    Here are the only unique channels:
    Sirius: Sirius Hits 1, Sporting News, OutQ

    XM: Top 20 on 20, The Village, The Groove, The Verge, Kiss, Mix, Pink, Rock at Random, Fox Sports, Indy Car, PGA, Fox business, the power, Laugh Attack, National Lampoons

    Once again, XM wins out..

    hexagram Medicinal & Recreational.

    It's all here:

    5 of those channels are commercial channels. The Verge is Canadian music... and if you factor out the sports channels, then you would take out Fox Sports, Indy Car, and PGA (which is available on Best of XM).

    That leaves you with Top 20 on 20, The Village, The Groove, Fox Business, The Power (which is an African-American talk channel), Laugh Attack, and National Lampoon Radio. That's only 7 unique channels (6 if you factor out "The Power").

    And we XM fans were the ones think we were going to get screwed. I'd hate to be a Sirius subscriber right now! :nana:

    Actually, if you're interested in Canadian (yes "foreign") news, society and culture, Sirius has CBC and Radio-Canada. For me, as a Canadian, this is an important difference.

    Hanukkah, Holiday Pops, Bing Crosby Christmas will be on XM. Also, The Verge is Canadian.

    If you're going to throw out stuff, you should toss the CC channels (Nashville, Kiss, Mix, Pink, Rock at Random, Extreme, Reach MD, National Lampoon, Talk Radio, WLW) since XM is obligated to carry those, and Sirius wouldn't carry them if they wanted to.

    Oh, and the Bridge is not unique to XM. It is a Sirius channel that is pre-empted by Led Zeppelin.

    NPR Now is on XM.

    Oprah, XMPR, PGA Tour and NHL Home Ice are Best of XM. NFL, Nascar, Howard 100 and 101, Martha, Playboy are Best of Sirius (i.e. premium).

    The list narrows . . .
