Hi all,

Just read on the XM board here as a reason perhaps why XM went up:

Rumor on the street is that XM will announce it has got financing and will raise the monthly subscription fee.

I have no idea how valid this rumor is but if true:

1) Would additional financing = stock dilution?

2) Raising the monthly subscription fee would give Sirius a greater advantage in the market? I always saw it as "for an extra $3/mo you get 100% commercial free music?" Now that $3 premium would drop. This might help Sirius' subscription numbers...

I still feel that Sirius is poorly advertised, but last time I went to Circiut City, they had Sirius and XM almost equally displayed, side-by-side with literature for both. I can't help but think that XM's ads will get people into the store, but with display's like I saw, most people will see get to see Sirius before actually before purchasing anything. At least I hope so...

Comments anyone?

Still rooting for Sirius,
