    Directv drops SiriusXM for Sonic???

    What happened here? I enjoy listening to Directv's music channels during nap time. All the channels are goofy and they are now labeled as Sonic. I am confused and more than a little annoyed. Many of the channels show up as being subscription only? Can anyone else explain this?
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    When I type those channels in it says I need purchase a subscription. If I use the channel up/down button I can access them. I am not to hung up on who provides the music, but I would like to know why I can't type in the channel number.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Now I can only get a handful of those channels even with the up/down button. Maybe DTV is doing some sort of update.

    I just want to be able to access the music.

    Nooooooo

    I liked getting XMU through Directv. This sucks.
    I hope it's never sunny in Philly again.
