You can read about the details of the deal here: http://www.broadcastingcable.com/art...ml?q=XM+merger

I was hoping Mel would expand on items 3 & 4.
I read some months ago that XM and Sirius equipment were incompatible and basically all the merger meant was that when you purchase a new subscription you either choose the "xm" or "sirius" package. Is this not the case?
