Info was on the chat tonight for those who missed it. There will be 61 music channels and some non-music channels. Supposedly Air America (the new liberal talk radio station) has been signed to be on Dish.
TNGTony said:Okay, I watched the Charlie Chat and they definitely DID NOT state that any radio channel WOULD be carried. Charlie said "...MAYBE one or two radio channels."

Tried to listen to the Muzak channels for a BBQ last Saturday and the music selection was awful (I like a DEEP music selection as much as the next guy but they were playing failed singles and a bunch of other junk even I have never heard of (and I have over 3000 CDs). Wound up switching to CDs out of frustration......
great, just when we might be able to get rid of ClintonNewsNetwork this shows up...Chris Walker said:Info was on the chat tonight for those who missed it.

You can also take your computer's audio output (be it MP3s, internet radio stations, Sirius, etc.) and pipe it to an FM transmitter (see http://www.mobileblackbox.com). Then you can use your FM boom box up to 150 ft. or so from your PC. I hope to get my setup installed this weekend, and listen to MLB audio feeds from any radio in the house.bigthrust said:Another option. I built a "MP3" radio station at home which is available on my private network. Anywhere in the house, where there's a PC, you can tune in and listen. I also created a request website where anyone at home can request songs from my MP3 collection. I can "funnel" the music to my outside speakers too.
Traing for what????Scott Greczkowski said:Yes they signed a deal with Sirius and will carry 61 channels, all of them will be music, however there are talks now to bring 1 or 2 talk channels in as one of the 61 channels.
I should also note that while the Sirius Channels will be uplinked on May 20th, they probably won't be available to the general public on the 20th. On the 20th Dish will be holding its Team Summit in Dallas Texas (which I will be attending) and will be training dealers on Sirius. I believe the comment from the peanut gallery about the May 20th launch should not have been mentioned to the general public. I do believe we will see Sirius available around May 27th for customers.
