First off, as stated earlier, commercials are only going on ClearChannel operated stations. I personally have XM, mainly because it came out first and I got it before Sirius even came to market but, I've heard many hours of Sirius as well and I must say, I don't see a huge difference.

Secondly, as for XM losing money, here's a news flash for you, Sirius is lso losing a ton of money. I doubt either one of themare going anywhere anytime soon.

Lastly, a good sourse of info about this issue is at the following website. In the forums section they have a thread that explains the commercial thing fairly well. Here's the site: XM Forums

sirius dug them selves out of a bigger hole. They paid stern 500 million and they needed to sell 2 million radios to make their money back from it and they sold 5 million...Sirius isnt in the hole as bad as they used to be. After GM keeps falling i think xm will be on the lifeline

The following Yahoo finance links detail how Sirius and XM are doing financially.

http://yahoo.reuters.com/stocks/Comp...?symbol=SIRI.O
http://yahoo.reuters.com/stocks/Comp...?symbol=XMSR.O

For FY 2005, SIRI lost $863 million. For the same interval XMSR lost $675 million. Sirius had 3.3 million subsribers, XM had 6 million.

I think they both are bleeding cash. I wouldn't invest in either until they get close to making money.

Yep, I already ordered my sirius interface and equipment to install. No more need for it after this year when Nascar goes to sirius.

They'll be goin up at a point though, their stock is gonna sell so fast if one of them posts a gain.
