I'm reading differently (unless I mis-interperted something) on one 
of the XM fan sites, that they are using different channel numbers, 
but that still some of the channels are being put oh hiatus. 
Bandwidth is still bandwidth, no matter how you map the channels.  In 
other news, the promised Canadian channels are live and available to 
regular subscribers on XM as of yesterday, but not available to those 
(including me) who only get XM via DirecTV.
