How do the channels compare?
What a splendid and interesting question! In terms of your specific question, both Sirius Satellite Radio and XM Satellite Radio offer roughly the same programming regarding music. Both feature many channels with commercial-free music from almost every genre.
The main difference comes in sports and other talk programming. If you are a baseball fan, then XM is the right choice. You can listen to every MLB game.
If you are more of an NFL fan, then Sirius is your best bet. You can listen to every NFL game with Sirius, and you can even choose to listen to the home or away broadcast.
Overall, Sirius is better for sports except for baseball. Both also have lots of options for news, traffic, and weather for major cities.
The hardware options are similar. You can buy portable devices or have them installed in your car. Each also offers you the ability to listen to their music stations online from your PC at no extra charge For fans of Bruce Springsteen and Elvis, Sirius has hour all Bruce and all Elvis channels.
