Default XM or Sirius Satellite Radio - What's Better For News?

XM has Open Road, with Bill Mack and Dave Nemo.

Does Sirius have anything like that?

I prefer news channels to music channels, but I like the music channels XM has to offer.

You are going to start an emotional argument ....

Go to the web sites and compare programing.

Just to say Sirius dropped Fox News for Howard Stern ... :P so I dropped them for XM. Plus the Garmin 7200 has a XM radio built in.

Lol, I don't like Howard Stern or Fox News, so that doesn't matter.

What I do want is Trucking News and plenty of other news options.

I'm leaning toward XM.

Yeah we have been down this road before.
My personal preference is XM. I had Sirius but they dropped Fox news so I dropped them. For no other reason than that.

I'm a business and finacial news sorta guy. That is CNBC for me, and it is actually on both Siruis and XM. I am also a NASCAR and NFL fan. Sirius just landed the deal for 5 years for Nascar starting in 2007 so I think it will be Sirius for me. I like the variety on XM but these are the deal breakers for me. When I finally start driving I will be adding satellite radio.

sirius did not drop fox news fox news dropped sirius,
i c the xm marks r pumping xm on this thread.
the fact remains before howard announced the move over a year ago thy had only 600000 or so subcribers now way way over 3 million &selling more units then xm ever thought about. and for you rugged hillbillys nascar in 07.
you wanna talk about desperation how about xm paying oprah 55 million dollars to do a half hour show once a week 39 weeks a year for 3 years.
sirius howard,bubba cnbc the list goes on and on those r my 3 favorites. but hey u compare yourself.
