I actually asked about this on an XM list recently, and I was told by 
multiple XM listeners that the WS feed, at least on XM, is the same exact 
one you hear on shortwave. I don't own XM yet, so I can't verify this. 
Apparently the Sirius feed is North America specific. The Internet stream 
is definitely the same as shortwave, at least if you get it off of the site.
