All I can say it's about time. I'm not a fan of the music channels that comes with DTV, happier than hell we're getting this.

DirecTV, XM Satellite Sign Program Deal

DirecTV Group Inc., the nation's largest direct broadcast satellite provider, said Thursday it will start offering music and talk-radio channels to its customers under a deal with XM Satellite Radio Holdings Inc.

Being a loyal subscriber to both services, this is great news. Frankly, I am amazed that DTV is doing this at no extra charge to it's subscribers.

Having XM and DirectTV it is good news.

BTW, this deal mirrors what Sirius and Dish Network have had in place for quite some time. I suspect XM and DirectTV had no choice.

This sounds like 1 + 1 = 3 ! I bet that every cable company is scratching their heads about what they can do do compete. I have been hanging onto cable because I don't like to have to deal with set-top boxes but this could change all that.

Ultra Hog, I work for a DISH Network retailer and they have something cable and DirecTV doesnt. They are called dual tuner receivers, You only have to 1 box for every 2 TVs, each tv has a satellite remote, but there is a box only at 1 of the TV's, this also cuts the monthly box fee (usually5$) in half. So you can put the box in the bedroom and not see it in the living room or vice versa... :)

Awesome. I hate television, but my dear husband has to have it. I won't feel so bad about the bill if there's something in it for me. ;)

That is odd. I have DTV and mine works 2 TV's with one box and I have TIVO that record 2 channels at the same time. Technology!!!!!!!!!!
