I'm a little disappointed that they're dumping Utopia to SXM 2.0/Online so quickly, and in favor of another "celebrity" format. And I'm not convinced anyone will be interested in an expanded Studio 54 with four decades of music.

Techno into disco sounds like a train wreck to me.
Yeah, "Studio 54 Radio (Channel 54), which will feature the biggest dance hits from the ‘70s through the 2000’s all in one place starting August 4" - I guess I will give it a listen, but I think you probably shouldn't mix more than two decades together at a time for dance music.

They kinda sorta tried that when The Strobe returned to Sirius a long time ago. They were doing 70's to a mid 90's mix. Was strange hearing KC & The Sunshine Band into Euro dance.

It is awful. I called in a cancellation today. I hope more people do to send them a message. Utopia is one niche format they did well and isn't readily available in other places (terrestrial, etc.). While I know the same music is available on Spotify, Pandora, and IHeart, I haven't found a channel with a similar mix. I would appreciate suggestions if anyone knows of another 'radio' source with a VERY similar format to Utopia.

Heard Brittney segue into Sylvester this morning. Didn't exactly work. It was the effect of watching 2 bullet trains collide.

Admittedly, Utopia was a bit on the fringes of my musical taste, but I did have it in my presets to listen to on occasion. Like I said above...seems like they are cutting too wide a swath with combining Utopia and Studio 54. I dropped by the new format Studio 54 briefly this morning while driving and found The Rolling Stones playing. Nothing wrong with that, except that it doesn't fit with what folks who liked Utopia probably want to listen to, and I imagine vice-versa from the folks who enjoyed the existing Studio 54 format when they fire it up and hear Britney and other modern dance music. Strange move all around. I somehow doubt this experiment will last very long.

Very disappointed that they removed Utopia (Channel 55) and made it Online only, not everyone has a radio that has the XTRA channels, I use my car's factory radio and I'm not buying a stupid radio I have to hang somewhere else on my car, seriously, what are they thinking? this has to be one of the dumbest decisions I have seen business wise for a while, needless is to say that I called and disconnected my service after over 7 years being a loyal subscriber, from what I have seen on social media many did the same thing I did.
