I am seriously thinking of canceling my XM account.
Reasons are too many commercials on talk shows and
repeated music on all channels. When will this
XMSirius merger get started for it's present customers.
When will be able to get the channels we specifically
want (ala carte) and when will we be able to get Best of Both.
Do we have to wait until April or May 2009 to get this
offer? If not I am considering canceling my account.

Please advise?

Hi Donald. Every XM customer has to decide what's best for them. In my case, I just couldn't justify paying another nickel for a subscription. I'll get more use out of my Zune and I'll probably listen a bit to local radio again (but not much!). I'm also not convinced the combined XM/Sirius operation will be any better than each was on their own. In this case, I think one plus one equals one.

Ah, my best mate has XM and it's so user unfriendly. He bought stock in it years ago and is now, of course, regretting it. It's no wonder their stock has tanked...esp. after hearing your story. Lately, I've had excellent customer service from Sprint and Verizon. Horrible w/Comcast (which is why we left).
Thanks for sharing.
