Fox Sports off Sirius/XM?
« on: October 18, 2013, 01:00:41 pm »
Went to listen today, and channel 247 is not Fox Sports. Robot voice saying "this channel is no longer available." WTF? I can listen on my phone, but I have a portable XM player in my car that lets me pause the show (I am in and out of my car all day due to my job)...which is cool bc I don't miss any of the show that way. Sirius's website still has Fox Sports listed....

Vito noted on Twitter that FSR is no longer on XM. He's bummed about it too.

on the wiki for Fox Sports, i found this
Quote
Clear Channel Communications sold off its ownership stake in Sirius XM Radio during the second quarter of fiscal year 2013. As a result of the sale, nine of Clear Channel's eleven XM Satellite Radio stations, including Fox Sports Radio, ceased broadcast over XM on October 18, 2013.

fox sports link on sirusxm website now redirects to mad dog.
sixx sense redirects to hair nation  :uhh

Well they lost my subscription. With Iheart radio I can listen to whatever XM has music wise (for my tastes, I am not some Deadhead or Eminem die hard that needs that station to survive, nor am I a Stern fan). The sole reason I kept it was Mohr and my player's ability to pause...guess I have to listen live like the rest of the world and miss what I miss when I go into sales calls. Oh and f*ck CLEAR CHANNEL, by the way. They are the evil empire of the radio and concert world.

It's been months since the station that used to have Mohr Sports in Peoria stopped coming in. Was in Bloomington around where the station is yesterday and it was nothing but static.
