XM radio possible?? Do not want Sirius

I really can't stand Sirius..XM has more channels that I listen to (pop2k/kiss fm/fox sports radio/etc.). EAS sells the aftermarket yet fully integrated kit for the 06+ 3 series cars. Anyone bought and installed this??

Here is the link:

Not the same company. Many stations that I listen to on XM are not on Sirius..such as XM21 (kiss fm)/Pop2k on Xm which is much better than the pop2k on Sirius which plays old school hiphop/fox sports radio only on xm not on sirius. plus the signal strength is much better on my wife's lexus with XM than the sirius on BMW.

Back to point..anyone install this product from EAS?

Actually, the company is SiriusXM Radio, Inc., officially a merger, but more of a takeover by Sirius. However, they still maintain some separate programming, although you can add a 'Best of' package to get the separate programming of the other service.

While my psychic powers are limited, I predict that over time we'll see one set of channels on one set of devices.
