SiriusXM has just announced that their satellite radio service will be undergoing some changes next week. On May 4, most of your favorite channels will be reordered and some channels will be combined. Here’s what they had to say:
We’re reordering our channels in a better way, to make it easier for you to find the programming you like and improve the experience for all our listeners. As a result, many of the channels you listen to will have a new channel number beginning May 4.
If you’re worried about having to reprogram your XM hardware, you might not even have to go through the trouble as they’ve mentioned “your radio preset buttons should automatically ‘follow’ any channels that you’ve preset to their new locations.” All in all it should be a hassle free update that should make life easier for SiriusXM listeners. Head over to their website for more details including the new channel lineup and numbers.
