In the short term, everyone's radios will still work, but they'll continue to only receive either XM or Sirius, not both.

Eventually, the company produce a new type of radio that will receive programming from both systems.

It's not clear if old radios will still be able to work after that.

I've got a Delphi Roadie mounted to my HD Ultra Classic. Hope it lasts awhile.

    Are consumers complaining about Sirius and XM doing all this advertising about commercial free stations, when in fact 90% of the stations on Sirius contain commercials. I contacted Sirius regarding this and their reply (enclosed in part) was that they don’t consider it to be commercials. Where I come from if it waddles like a duck, quacks like a duck…… In their reply Sirius boasts that they have 12 stations with no host or ”announcements”. How is it that Sirius can advertise 100 stations with no commercials? Please cover this.
    Thank You.

    Our emphasis is on the music and entertainment you want. Master music programmers and on-air personalities, who are true experts, host our music. They back up the music with compelling information about the song being played. We do not consider announcements and on-air host
    discussions \”commercials?, we simply want to ensure that our listeners remember who they are listening to so they can come back to their favorite channels and make requests. We apologize for any frustration caused by the announcements and on-air host discussions.

    Though many of our subscribers appreciate the on-air hosts on SIRIUS, we do understand that there are subscribers who would rather hear music without DJs. Danny, we\’re happy to point out that we have 12 un-hosted
    music channels and encourage you to check them out! They are as follows:

    Starlite // Ch. 2
    SIRIUS Love // Ch. 3
    Movin\’ Easy // Ch. 4
    The Bridge // Ch. 10
    The Coffeehouse // Ch. 30
    Chill // Ch. 35
    Planet Jazz // Ch. 70
    Spa73 // Ch. 73
    Kids Stuff // Ch. 116
