Protective. Not territorial. There's a thought process behind every change, to keep the listing more-or-less authoritative. And I always replace the betas with a link to the final updated edition at first post. So there are no outdated or demo versions cluttering a sticky thread. Sample change proposals should be identified as such, not mocked up to look like the real thing. Design is a marker for credibility.Being a bit territorial are we?
Excellent. Hexagram had a similar idea and I was a little slow on the uptake, but from here it makes perfect sense. I'll get to it this weekend.I think that the difference table should take into account the Internet feed. Maybe adding a symbol for "internet only" would be the right approach (similar to the "$" symbol).
Sirius subscibers do now get Cinemagic & many other channels on the internet feed (but not through satellite).
What do you think?
Thanks for the heads-up. Yep, Family Talk it is; I picked up the description from the Channel Guide, rather than the name.
Sirius has English soccer PbP and soccer talk on channel 125.
XM has baseball, and they're working on getting it on Sirius. Apparently there's language in MLB's XM contract that says "only XM satellites" which was intended to keep it off the online service. Hopefully by the spring, they'll have this fixed.
I think these are the only huge differences. I think most everything is available on "one system with best of other guy's."
What's left to merge:
1) Get the talk/news channels all on the same channel numbers.
2) Do the above to the music...We already have the same music basically.
3) Get everything on the same satellites/repeater system. I should be able to buy a portable radio which can work off either set of repeaters/satellites.
For me, number 3 is the big one. Get that accomplished and the technical side of the merger is mostly finalized.
Other points.Thanks for the heads-up. Yep, Family Talk it is; I picked up the description from the Channel Guide, rather than the name.
Update pending, the first since 5/09...and the only programming change is from Clear Channel.
