Sirius/XM Readies For Bankruptcy

The AP reports that Sirius/XM is preparing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. This would probably mean MLB would get stiffed, in at least the short term, over their payments for MLB broadcasts.


I just bought a new car that includes 3 months of free XM radio. I hope I get to continue using it. Meanwhile, I'm not sure how this impacts its operations going forward, and whether I'd pay to keep it. Obviously, I won't pay if it's going to be shut down!
Chapter 11 means they're hoping to stiff their creditors while waiting for economic conditions to improve.
As a DirecTV subscriber, I was pretty pissed when the radio station merger meant I lost Fred and Ethel as stations (available through my DirecTV channels in the 800 block), and gained annoying DJs in return.
