 XM vs. Sirius

I think that they're both about the same my wife has XM in her G6 and I have Sirius in my car. Hers sounded a bit better bc hers is built into her radio. Mine uses the FM transmitter for now. XM has MLB, I think Sirius has NFL (I'm not much of a sports fan) Realisticly they both just give you 100+ more channels to surf through and have a bitch of a time finding what you want. Awesome on long trips. BTW Sirius has Howard Stern if you're into that.

I have XM and my friend has Sirius and XM. He loves both, however, XM has over 4 million subscribers and sirius is barely to 1 million. Think of the difference of quality of programming of 4 times the revenue to one. Therefore you get better programing. XM has better Rap, Sirius better rock, tell me what kind of music you like and i'll let you know which is better. Also, XM has exclusive MLB, Future exclusive hockey and football if memory serves correct. They also have nascar and a million other sports... but let me know what type of programming you like and ill tell you which is better cause im tired of typing. Peace.

OK a few things

1. You can't say XM is better just because it has more subscribers, it has been around longer!
2. Nascar is moving to sirius
3. Sirius is about to have almost all the major sports, exclusively.

I have never expierenced XM but I have used Sirius and just looking at their stats it seems Sirius is winning....

Yes I can, because XM has 4x the subscribers of Sirius, they have 4x the budget, which makes for better programming. Also, XM has free online satelite radio so you can listen anywhere theres internet. But whatever he decides to get, im sure he'll love it and never go back to regular radio again.

Sirius also has free online satelite radio with their subscriptions. Also, more subscribers doesn't mean that the company management makes the best decisions as to what stations to provide.

true, but it goes to show you how many more people choose XM cause they think its better. And with a company that lured in 4x the subscribers, i don't think there's bad management, and for the rap and rock i listen to, Sirius can't touch XM...

XM only has more subscribers because they had over a year head start on Sirius. Sirius music channels are completely commercial free, XM is starting to run commercials on their music channels. Yes, Sirius has free online streams for subscribers. Sirius has pretty much every sport except MLB, and I'm sure once XMs contract is up, Sirius will have them too. And as for sound quality, XM doesn't compare. They've been too busy adding useless content and not adding bandwidth. Therefore the sound has gone down the crapper. And XM likes to play too many unknown bands, while I have found Sirius mixes it up a lot better. Another reason XM may have more subscribers is probably because people are cheap. It's 3 bucks less per month than Sirius. But as far as I'm concerned, Sirius>XM any day.

XM never runs commercials on music channels. that is completely wrong. They do on other channels though. I switched to sirius since my xm attena went bad and i got a good deal on one for my pioneer headunit. Anyways, sirius is much better music with less unknowns like XM, and more good music instead of subpar unknowns. I do miss XM's rap though. And by the way, XM costs the same as sirius.

^^haha your an idiot... Sirius won't be around long trust me. XM will buy them out, just like they already got half of them. XM has much better music stations. Did I also forget to add NBA is switching to XM as well now, according to a press conference with David Stern. NFL will soon follow after this season.

XM is losing its lead to sirius, less people are signing up for sirius than XM now, so you're retarded. and i could care less about sports, i like howard stern and opie and anthony are to arrogant. by the way talk is much better than xm's.

I actually have a better signal strength with my sirius in my region (mid michigan) but i also installed the anttenna on my roof instead of my trunk this time. so that could cause difference too. but anyways its preference. i prefer sirius, and im done because arguing on the internet is like being in the specail olympics, if you win or lose, you're still retarded in the end.

Sirius has good backing as well. Like Dish Network, Chrysler, BMW, Ford, Mercedes-Benz, Nissan and Land Rover. Also Rolls-Royce produtcs in the US come with Sirius equipped radios (and a lifetime subscription.) As for commercials I listened to my Sirius on a trip to New York (8hrs.) I think I may have only heard 6 Station Identification Pauses and no commercials. Keep in mind I listened to the same channel the entire way. True, XM does have more listeners but Sirius is signing on new subscribers at a much higher rate than XM. IMHO I like Sirius better than XM because they play more of the music I like. Also they have Howard Stern and Bubba The Love Sponge, some people don't like their humor, but I do. This is the same debate as Ford vs. Chevy, Honda vs. Mitsubishi, Democrat vs. Republican, Kicker vs. Fosgate, etc.

Think maybe howerd stern had something to do with that.

Yea he helped but from the numbers sirius was expecting which was like 14 million only gettin 4 million more customersd is considered a flop.

These were the stats http://radio.about.com/od/satelliteradio/a/blsatcomparecht.htm before you run your mouth, get some facts. I'm sorry but this forum and all u fucks are idiots. Heres the news from oct.. Where XM just got Satellite 4 and 5.. http://www.orbitcast.com/archives/updates-on-xms-new-satellites.html

How can you call anyone an idiot when your tag name has power acoustik in it?
