XM was originally set up with one "special" seasonal channel called "Special
X".  When they realized that this wasn't enough, they would seasonally bump
some of the less popular channels (ie. Sunny) for the special needs.
Apparently they've improved their codec to the point where they can now
squeeze additional channels out of their bandwith.
