XM Sirius Merger Leaves Some Users Sour


Posted November 18, 2008 - By TylerColfax

About a week ago, Sirius and XM started to consolidate their content over the satellite radio airwaves as they officially joined forces. In the end, this has resulted in many of the more daring stations from XM to become a little toned down, consolidated or even completely removed altogether.

Users could have guessed this fate but some are outraged that there was no warning or communication about what changes would be made. Luckily, the new, and only, satellite radio juggernaut offers different subscription plans, including one that gives the option to select a 50-station set instead of getting the full boat unnecessarily.

Still, 52% of subscribers are unsatisfied or planning to cancel after the changes went into effect last week. This is according to a poll posted on an XM fanboy forum. So, while it's not very scientific and presumably only represents XM users which is where most of the cuts happened, its at least representative in some way.
