    I'm getting X's here.

    Very happy CBC will be on XM. I like Laugh Attack so a rename is no big deal, if The Verge stays then this worked out perfect for me. I'll check out that Canadian talk channel too if it has interesting content.

    Also SXM Canada has suddenly got a LOT more active with their FB & twitter- they're even promoting the 60s Satellite Survey!

    Up for a little 60's flashback? Hear the 40 biggest songs from this week in April 1965, including The Beatles, The Beach Boys, Herman's Hermits and more, on the Sixties Satellite Survey. Tonight at 9PM ET on SiriusXM 60's On 6.

    I am a big fan of questionable programming.

    Hmm, who could fill possibly fill in those 3 spots? Celiene Dion Radio, Avril Lavigne Radio and Nickelback Radio, I would for sure listen to the last channel! :p

    So, I guess the biggest change will be Pop2K popping up on Sirius radios in 12 hours?

    I looked for the press release but couldn't find it.

    I don't think SiriusXM offically announced this was the date- I believe it was mentioned on FB and everyone believed it. I think it will happen sometime soon but not tomorrow.

    Yea, their twitter & FB page has been very quiet since they posted this last month:

    They actually removed that post from the Pop2k Facebook page.

    It would not make any sense for them to update one channel change (Especially on the Sirius side) where it requires more time- if there planning on moving/shuffling some other channels in a better category- they would do it all at the same time (As per a poster who works for SiriusXM on the XMFan site)

    Do someone jumped the gun?

    Based on the past- the big channel shuffle back in 2011 was on 5/4 announced 4/26- which if it is on 5/9 this year would put it in line about 9 days the same to announce next Tues (when the earnings report is scheduled)- Just a guess :)

    I am confused about this thread. There are 3 pics with ? on it and a link that goes to Sirius Canada page. Is this tread about changes to the Canada side only?

    Never mind. I just saw this thread is in the Canada forum.

    Sorry for being a dumbass.

    There is only one set of sats so programming changes will be felt on US radios too.
