Haven’t been paying too much attention to our pals over at XM lately, so here is a little update. After a little tiff with Clear Channel about adding advertisements to their channels (CC provides programming to several XM channels), XM decided to add genre channels that match the CC provided channels.
Those new channels are:
U.S. Country – XM 17 – Country Superstars of the 80s and 90s
Flight 26 – XM 26 – Modern Hits 90s & Now
XM Hitlist – XM 30 – Today’s Hit Music
enLighten – XM 34 – Southern Gospel
XM Liquid Metal – XM 42 – Heavy Metal XL
Big Tracks – XM 49 – Later Classic Rock
The Heat – XM 68 – Rhythmic Hits
Escape – XM 78 – Easy Listening
XM Chill – XM 84 – Chill Music
Viva – XM 91 – Latin Pop Hits
They also will be adding 6 regional talk radio stations in the spring and summer.
If you can tolerate another subscription in your life, XM is really great. If you spend a lot of time in the car or just like ad-free radio, check out XM.
