On May 4th most of the SiriusXM channel numbers are changing. This is not good news for those of us who finally know how to find a favourite channel on the dial. There are a few new channels and a few dropped channels.

Here is the sirius list:

Here is the XM list:

Most of the channel numbers are now the same for both providers. Most have merged except Sports and Howard, the money makers (they can't charge "best of" prices if these channels merge.)

Wate of time. They should be revamping the content.

Sirius radios were experiencing drop-outs and skipping on some of their channels (in both the US and Canada) after they "merged" the numbers with XM . This lasted about a month, but the problem seems to have been solved. Sirius admitted that they had a problem, but as of yet have not stated what caused that problem.

I get drop-outs on Sirius Canada channels when driving on the QEW between Hamilton and Fort Erie. At least 4 or 5 times at different places each time the radio drops out and then comes back a few seconds later. Happens whether I'm east or westbound. This has gone on for the past 2 years or maybe longer I don't really remember. Only happens on the QEW not on 401 (Woodstock to Windsor) and back or 403 (Hamilton to Woodstock).

It sounds like terrestrial interference.
