i like sirius...i've listened to both, and i just don't like xm's programming as much...plus, i'm a howard stern fan, and he'll be on sirius in january, so that sealed the deal for me.

Xm Comedy 150 is bad ass. But as far as the rest of the programming don't really care.

I have had both and prefer xm over Sirius overall. I like Sirius programing slightly over xm, but there playlists seem to repeat far more than xm. Sirius also had a lot more signal drop outs and fade aways where the xm signal was strong.
In the same car with the same system and same antenna location, the xm sounds better than Sirius.

Sweet, I didn't know they had that. Sirius would be my choice then, just because they have Howard. They probably need to work on that signal issue though.

I have XM in my stang. My wife has Sirius in her car. Sirius has much better rock stations. I'm thinking of switching to Sirius for rock, Stern & NFL.

Another vote for Sirius. Had XM in the truck and Sirius through Dish Network. Cancelled XM because the programming had no variety. The Sirius through Dish rocks...now wanting to get that for the road. That playback unit looks awesome.
