The Other Foot Drops on the Satellite Radio Merger

I subscribed to to XM because I had friends who worked there, and have always enjoyed its programming. Then when we got a Jeep last year, I felt that XM's music programming was superior to the Sirius music that we got with the new car. And when their merger was announced, I wondered who would win the programming war, and whether the XM aesthetic begun with Lee Abrams would survive.

I got the answer this morning: no.

An influx of Sirius programming will load onto my receiver this morning, Yet, if I want Howard or Playboy or the NFL, I gotta pay extra.

So, I'm left wondering: is this a merger, or not?
