You substituted the word "to" for the word "may" in the headline.;)

From the article:

"And now, the industry may be getting ready to try an even more dramatic third act a possible attempt to merge the two services."

The FCC mandated the two companies to develop a receiver that could receive both services. Unfortunately, the mandate didn't ask for anything else so that prototype is probably locked in a safe deposit box somewhere.

IMO a merger would be a good thing.....

.....As a regular Toyota owner, if I was interested in sat radio, I wouldn't be happy that XM is what Toyota offers...no Sirius!...GRR

There is an electronic "brain" you can buy that will let you listen to Sirius with an XM ready radio.
