Satellite Radio: Sirius or XM?

Being a music lover, I have recently subscribed to Sirius Satellite Radio. The selection process to subscribe to Sirius or XM was not easy and required a little bit of research before I wanted to invest my money into this service. There are pros and cons to both. The prices are pretty much the same. If XM was at least 25% less than Sirius, I would have gone with XM. The main things I considered when I deciding were receiver models, prices, and of course channel selections. Having listened to XM satellite radio all day at work, I went with Sirius for variety. We all know the main reason why most people choose Sirius over XM. Yes, Howard Stern is only on Sirius. As far as music selection, I was somewhat disappointed since everyone had spoken so highly of Sirius. Having listened to XM, all the songs were played in a loop and I would hear the same song at least 3 times in an 8 hour day. I thought it would be different with Sirius, but no, it was all the same. I actually like the music on XM better, but now I am stuck with what I have.
