All the financial outlets are reporting the imminent filing of Chapter 11 by Sirius XM and their stock has tumbled to just 8c as I write this. A lot of people seem to be saying this means the end for satellite radio but I’m hopeful that they will be able to restructure and continue. Maybe they will have to lose the NFL and Howard Stern but I’ve no interest in them anyway. Of course, doing so might lose them more subscribers than they can afford to lose. But I’d hate to see them go under.
I like XM for the long radio dead spot on my commute to San Diego. I suppose I can go back to CDs and/or the iPhone. Slacker would be great but there’s no high speed internet connection for most of the journey.
But those are thoughts for later, if and when the time comes.
