    Took their good ole time with this, since Sirius has been doing this for some time now. (at no extra charge, mind you.)

    Not particularly interested, since when I stream over the internet, I usually listen to Radio Paradise.

    One of the interesting things is that someone found an article saying that the online service would have On The Rocks and Special X, two channels canceled this year.

    No confirmation if this is true or not.

    I signed up for the online service today. It's $3.99 if you already have a receiver activated. Their idea of HIGH quality is a 65k stream. [​IMG]

    None of the stations between 116 and 133 are available.

    The Opie and Anthony show is available on 202 if you are a subscriber.

    The best part?!

    Special X is back on channel 30! [​IMG]

    What? XM Charges for streaming service? (It's free for SIRIUS subscribers)

    can you get the streaming with O&A without already having a subscription? Would you pay the 6.99 plus the 1.99 for the premium O&A service? Or do you need to have a regular subscription, plus the 1.99, plus the 3.99 for web service?
