I have XM but haven't noticed which stations have changed. I'm not in the car long enough to pay attention. Guess I'd better take the time check out my presets.

Does anyone know of an XM Christmas channel? I looked at the lineup a few weeks ago online and didn't notice a Christmas channel.

I am glad to know that it just isn't me that doesn't like the new lineup. I am a Sirius subscriber and not liking that New Country has changed to Highway. 90s on 9 and they moved the Pulse and completely got rid of Old School Hip Hop channel (not sure what number that was). I am a bit frustrated. I believe my subscription runs out at the first of the year and will decide what to do closer to that time. I thought I would get some extra channels with the merger - I didn't realize they were gonna change or delete some channels.

Glad to see this thread is up. I'm SO annoyed and disappointed with the merger. I loved Sirius, and what we have now is just junk. I hate the 60s, 70s and 80s lineup. And the 40s?? Oh brother. The Vault seems to be gone, so is Backspin. I'm really po'd . I prepaid for the year, that will NOT be renewed if things don't change back.

Well my channels did not work this morning. I noticed a number of different names to my presets. I was on XM before the merger.

XM didn't send an email explaining the changes. I reset some of the presets, but I have noticed I'm channel surfing a lot more now to find a song I want to listen to. My subscription expires Christmas day. I doubt I'll renew.

Yeah, me too. The channel surfing thing. I have my little remote control in one hand and the other hand on the wheel.

Anyone else pissed about the talk they've put on XM46 (Top Tracks now Classic Vinyl). If I wanted to listed to someone talk, I tune to commercial radio.
