Sirius-XM Channels Changing in Early August

Sirius-XM Channels Changing

I thought I'd toss you a heads up in case you did not know, but Sirius-XM is changing up their channel line-up. Again. The change will kick in on August 13th, and I suspect, will dole out slowly over some period of time from user to user.

The change is introducing new channels to the lineup as well as moving some other channels about, Just to keep you guessing! The new channels include:

Velvet Ch. 13

Personally, the channel listing updates tend to never take place at a good time, but when is it a good time to muck with our receivers? Apparently the receivers need to be on for the updates to kick in, so there's that slight technicality.

If you need to figure out where your channel took off to in the fracas, SiriusXM provides a channel search tool for you.
