    Good news, I suppose. I probably have to get a new radio, but hopefully have more choices.

    Has anyone said for sure if we will need new hardware or not?

    The last thing I read, and it was a while back, indicated that current hardware would work after the merger. Which makes sense if you think about it. The hardware is essentially the same, it just picks up different signals depending which service you use.

    I need a new radio, since my Delphi is an abject piece of fail. But the impending rise in my Sirius stock should make that easier.

    And yes, terrestrial radio, it's LCD programming and 8-minute blocks of commercials can bite me.

    I was JUST about to start a thread bitching about how this hadn't happened yet. I'm pissed that we'll probably have to wait for another baseball season to get it on Sirius, but I guess I can live knowing that's it'll be coming next year.
    Anyone think this will raise prices in the short-term?

    Thank goodness! I was tired of hearing Howard bitching about it for the umpteenth time.

    No kidding... I just hope that despite the merger, they'll still offer him enough money to stay around after his contract is up in three years. I'm 34 and I've been listening to the guy since I was 15...

    What I wonder is will there be a merger of programming... they were floating a few sample channel grids and I would just as soon have ala carte pricing. I'd pay a bit more to have all the sports, for example (NFL, NHL, NCAA hoops, MLB) on radio.
