    Not trying to start a fight here, but do you really think that between the two XM is a sinking ship? I just saw yesterday that Sirius lost around 458.5 million for Q1. http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/12593219. Maybe this isn't as bad as it sounds because of recognizing the debt incurred bring Stern on board, but when you lose $450 million + in 3 months, that seems bad.

    I don't care about playboy but I might miss nascar a little bit. I listen to it for interviews sometimes, but I have no use for old races.

    I think there is gonna be plenty of space for both of these companies.

    Honestly, playboy radio seems kind of stupid. Probably didn't have many listeners for what it cost. NASCAR goes to whoever offers the most cash. In the end, 2 systems one program, high bidder wins. XM has most college fb games, mlb,nhl. I just wish the nfl was on xm.

    This is a onetime loss that they knew about. It really isn't that big of a deal. Sirius is outselling XM 10 to 1. Sirius will bury XM by late 2007.

    We'll see. I'd say be really careful what you wish for when it comes to eliminating competition.

    Have either one of these companies had a profit yet?

    The law firm of Schatz & Nobel, P.C., which has significant experience representing investors in prosecuting claims of securities fraud, announces that a lawsuit seeking class action status has been filed in the United States District Court for the District of Columbia on behalf of all persons who purchased or otherwise acquired the common stock of XM Satellite Radio Holdings, Inc. ("XM" or the "Company") (Nasdaq:XMSR) between July 28, 2005 and February 15, 2006, inclusive, (the "Class Period").

    The Complaint alleges that defendants violated federal securities laws by issuing a series of materially false statements. Specifically, defendants made misrepresentations regarding XM's ability to reduce the costs of its new subscribers as it reached its goal of 6 million subscribers by year end 2005. In reality, XM would be forced to spend extraordinarily large sums of money in the fourth quarter of 2005, in order to stay on track to achieve its stated goal. Despite defendants' knowledge that XM would be making those huge expenditures in the fourth quarter of 2005, defendants failed to disclose to the market that XM's cost of subscriber acquisition would rise to extraordinary levels, leading to huge increases in XM's net losses, which was in complete reversal of the trends of declining subscriber acquisition costs and net losses defendants were reporting. During the Class Period, several key insiders of XM made huge sales of their personal taking advantage of the artificial inflation of XM's common stock.

    On February 16, 2006, defendants issued a press release announcing XM's results for the fourth quarter 2005 and year 2005 results. In the release, they disclosed the truth about the skyrocketing level of XM's subscriber acquisition costs. On this news, XM's common stock fell 13% to close at $21.96 on February 17, 2006.

    If you are a member of the class, you may, no later than July 3, 2006, request that the Court appoint you as lead plaintiff of the class. A lead plaintiff is a class member that acts on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation. Although your ability to share in any recovery is not affected by the decision whether or not to seek appointment as a lead plaintiff, lead plaintiffs make important decisions which could affect the overall recovery for class members, including decisions concerning settlement. The securities laws require the Court to consider the class member(s) with the largest financial interest as presumptively the most adequate lead plaintiff(s).

    While Schatz & Nobel has not filed a lawsuit against the defendants, to view a copy of the Complaint initiating the class action or for more information about the case, class action cases in general, and your rights, please contact Schatz & Nobel toll-free at (800) 797-5499, or by e-mail at sn06106@aol.com, or visit our website: www.snlaw.net.

    Okay Now that I have some time, let me respond... Not A-List actors?

    Okay let's look at some of Richard Dreyfuss' bigger films in his career:

    American Graffiti (1973)
    Jaws (1975)
    Close Encounters (1977)
    Stand By Me (1986)
    Lost in the Yonkers (1993)
    Mr. Holand's Opus (1995)
    Night Falls on Manhattan (1997)
    Poseidon (2006)

    Those are just some of his movies... If he isn't A-List who is?
    What about Frank Vincent? Hmm let's see:

    Raging Bull (1980)
    Wise Guys (1986)
    Do the Right Thing (1989)
    Good Fellas (1990)
    Jungle Fever (1991)
    Casino (1995)
    Night Falls on Manhattan (1997)

    Just to name a few, besides the Sopranos... I think he is A-List...

    Since you asked me via PM, and I honestly didn't see this thread until today, I thought I would share my response with you with everyone in the thread:

    Quote Originally Posted by Me

    Playboy radio was part of the XM platform as recently as last year. However, their contract was not renewed on the XM platform. They were a premium service (when XM offered prememium content), and the subs did not justify the cost of carrying it. So Sirius picked up on it. They generated very little interest in the subscriber base.

    As for NASCAR, XM will loose the rights to broadcast it starting in 2007 because Sirius outbid them for the service. Xm was willing to pay only so much, but Sirius was willing to pay more. Coincidentally, beginning next year the NHL will be exclusive to XM after Sirius lost out on them.

    But that is the truth behind it, I do not know the exact figures of each deal for their respective companies, it is though published online if you dig hard enough. But that is really it... I don't work for XM or Sirius for that matter, but I do help out XM indirectly with my connection to the opie and anthony show.
    Lastly, Buster, look at the firm that is sueing XM. They have initiated multiple lawsuits agains notable companies to get money from them once their shares have dipped. Dreamworks is one that comes to mind, it really is a silly law suit. I will go on the record and say XM is doing some VERY stupid thing, but they will in the end be fine along with Sirius. Both companies are not going anywhere any time soon and need each other to succeed.

    Stern Says No to Terrestrial Radio


    May 10, 9:57 AM (ET)

    By LARRY McSHANE


    NEW YORK (AP) - Forget the various rumors and rumblings. Howard Stern made it clear Wednesday morning: He's staying put on satellite radio.

    "I'm very flattered terrestrial radio can't let go of me," Stern said on his morning radio show. "But I would throw up if I had to go back. I'm never going back."

    The self-proclaimed King of All Media said that three companies have made overtures through his agent, but there was no interest from his end. He did not name the companies.

    Stern is just five months into a five-year, $500 million satellite radio contract.


    "I've never been happier," Stern said. "We're flying high and doing great."

    Stern told the New York Post in a story published Tuesday that he had been offered "a major deal" to return to regular radio.

    The Post identified one of the prospective bidders as Citadel Broadcasting, whose chief executive, Farid Suleman, worked with Stern for several years at Infinity Broadcasting until his departure for Citadel in March 2002.

    Calls to Citadel for comment were not immediately returned.

    Stern made his comments during an on-air interview Wednesday with The Associated Press. The eternally audacious shock jock insisted on speaking with the AP about the reports that he might consider a simulcasting deal where he split time between Sirius Satellite Radio and a traditional outlet.

    Stern competitors Greg "Opie" Hughes and Anthony Cumia recently made such an agreement with CBS Radio. Stern worked for CBS before making his move to satellite in January.

    Stern said that Opie and Anthony's return to traditional radio signified their "failure" on satellite. And he reiterated his intent to continue his program exclusively on satellite.

    "The story is I wouldn't do it (terrestrial radio) for any reason," Stern said. "Not for money. I left because I couldn't stand the censorship. I couldn't stand" the Federal Communications Commission.

    The FCC and Stern were locked in a long, pitched battle that led to staggering fines for the content of the shock jock's show.

    Stern said he wanted to reiterate his commitment to satellite because of the growing number of reports that he could go back to terrestrial radio.

    So wait... let me get this right, because they are being syndicated out to CBS, they are failing? They are one of the top 10 stations on XM, and they just said that their contracts have been extended on XM...

    Poor howie...
