[edit] Channels canceled before launch

XM announced in April 2006 that in late spring/early summer six regional News & Talk channels (XM 134-XM 139) would be added and provide regional news coverage for every area of the continental US. These channels were to have been provided by Clear Channel Communications and were to have been located in "Regional News, Talk & Music Channels." According to Jon Zellner via a subscriber email, Clear Channel decided to forego the launch of these channels.[3] The original plan was to create a set of regionalized, five-minute newscasts. Each newscast was to carry 90 seconds of advertising, with the 3:30-minute balance devoted to regionally targeted news.

The channels were to be titled:


o o o

Northeast News and Talk Southeast News and Talk Midwest News and Talk

o o o

Middle America News and Talk Southwest News and Talk Northwest News and Talk

[edit] Channels of unknown status

XM Announced on 1/31/06 that they would be adding Traffic & Weather channels for Cincinnati, Cleveland, Denver-Boulder, Milwaukee-Racine, Portland, Providence-Warwick-Pawtucket, Sacramento, San Antonio and Wilmington, DE to their NavTraffic product during the first quarter 2006.[4] Rumors that a Traffic & Weather station could be dropped for Cincinnati due to the addition of WLW on XM channel 173 were unfounded as WLW was dropped from the XM service in 2009.

[edit] Seasonal/holiday channels


These channels are season- and holiday-based, and are only around for a part of the year. It is not uncommon that they take the place of an existing channel.

Holly - Holly is one of Sirius XM's annual month-long Christmas music channels that plays Christmas songs with an emphasis on up and coming singers. Its playlist changes from what one would find on an FM Adult Contemporary station at Christmas time to what one would find on a station aimed at tweens and teens. Holiday Traditions - Holiday Traditions is not a traditional Christmas channel per se, but instead is narrowly focused on seasonal pop recordings from the 1940s to the 1960s. Holiday Pops - This holiday channel plays choral and orchestral music with a Christmas theme. It replaces Sirius XM Pops in December and is therefore presented in XM HD Surround. Formerly known as "Pops Holiday Classics" (2005) and "A Classical Christmas" (200607). Country Christmas - This channel features Christmas-themed country music. It previously aired on XM as "A Nashville Christmas" (2005) and "Music City Holiday" (200607). Radio Hanukkah - This channel was debuted in 2006 for the Hanukkah celebration. Radio Hanukkah features the best in Jewish music, comedy, Broadway, talk and kids programming. This was the first satellite radio channel dedicated exclusively to Jewish culture.

The following seasonal channels also aired on XM in past years.

Special XMas - From 2001-07, this seasonal incarnation of the defunct Special X channel featured novelty holiday music, from songs by the likes of Alvin and the Chipmunks and Barney, to parody songs from Bob Rivers and Weird Al Yankovic, to the more grown-up xL tastes from punk rock bands. Special XMas also aired online and on DirecTV.

Bing Crosby Christmas Radio - Airing in 2008 and 2009 and hosted by members of the Crosby family, this channel featured more than twenty years of vintage Crosby radio specials.

[edit] XM on AOL Radio


On 2008-04-30, the XM channels were no longer offered on AOL Radio,[5] as AOL switched to CBS Radio for some of its content, thus ending a partnership between AOL and XM.
