XMRadio.com Complaint - Leave My Channel A Lone When You Want To Play Different Music

Review by twohen on 2009-12-07
I am paying for a certain type of music on my XM radio. On my escape channel you put some Hanukkah music which should go on a different channel. This is not escape music if it is, I can't see using your station any more. Get that Hanukkah music off channel. I want music with no vocal or very little. Put the xm escape back.

I am not paying for a week of Hanukkah music especially during Xmas. Put it on the Blend channel.

I'm a Sirius subscriber (which I guess is the same as XM now). I have always been surprised by the fact that they don't just create new channels for seasonal/holiday stuff. They don't a limit on channel numbers that I know of.

It is a bit weird that they essentially take over a regular channel for holiday stuff. I would be majorly annoyed if it was one of my regularly listened to channels.

Ken, when you travel as much as I do in your vehicle, it's almost impossible to find a radio station you like that stays in range. If I did not travel I would not have my Sirius.

That is what I thought too Jkt-but I still have Sirius although I'm not on the road as much as I used to be. Can't go back to the crap FM channels around here.

As I stated on another thread about Sirius (one responder was right, XM and Sirius did merge, although I wonder about the anti-monopoly laws)if you read the contract or instruction booklet you got when you signed up, I bet you will find a clause that says they may change the line-up as they see fit. No one ever promised you that they would keep the same line-up forever. This is too trivial to even waste time posting about.

Are they changing Escape to a Rock channel? The Beatles Sound of Silence? Eleanor Rigby? Playing hard driving beats like Chariots of Fire on Sunday morning? Martial music at all hours?
That is NOT the "relaxing melodies" that they advertise in their commercials.
This doesn't work for me. Neither does all the military music on every holiday, including religious holidays. Why play the National Anthem every hour on Thanksgiving, a holiday that is 150 years older than the United States. Playing the National Anthem like that is disrespectful anyway, you are supposed to stand and salute or put your hand over your heart when it is played. And if they want to play "patriotic music" all day then please at least play music from good bands - Boston Pops, etc. - not military bands, over and over and over.
This has been a great channel for many years, but is deteriorating badly.
Even that stupid commercial telling me that commercials ruin my day. If that were true, nobody would run them. How do you think I learned about Satellite Radio? When they give benefits of a product I have to pay for (Satellite Radio's Escape Channel) that is pretty darn "commercial."
The rock music is a deal breaker, and if they are going to continue with it I will have to cancel my subscription.
