well, i have (or rather had, just cancelled it) XM and have had it for like 3 yrs and barely any experience with Sirius. i'd probably go for sirius next from what i have heard on it though.

I have sirius now. I think I am going to let the subscription run out. Due to the economy, new york state says that I need to sit in the office and not travel for work anymore. So I really never listen to the radio. But other wise I have no real complaints about it. Stern from 6 till 1030 then I listen to stretch on maxim radio 108. Other wise its on classic rock.

Sirius has an all Led Zeppelin and all AC/DC channel. My truck came with a Sirius Radio and a subscription that still hasn't ran out nearly a year later. My choice was made for me.

XM 48 was awesome before the merge. It is kinda tame now with the sirius dj's. Octane is lame, Squizz played better songs and more new stuff.

I used to listen to Octane on my Dish network, while working in the house. And noticed it wasn't as good as XM 48.

Yep so true.. Octane sucks. I emailed them and they responded back with some lame form e-mail saying "we thank you for your input" and etc..
Now I find myself channel surfing and driving and then getting pissed off and flipping on my Ipod in disgust..
Then I get really pissed off after being slowed down in traffic and reaching for my Kimber 1911 .45ACP..

I've got experience with both. I just let the XM subscription that came on my '09 expire because they were siriusly lacking in the music department. I went on their website and couldn't find a lot of the music that I enjoy on any of their stations. I drove across country with my buddy a couple of years ago using his Sirius player, and we never had a problem finding good music on it, so I'd be more likely to go with Sirius. The only advantage that I could find to XM was the MLB package. I'm interested to see how the music thing shakes out once they finally complete the merger.
