    I don't mean to be picky... you said "I know all that" but in the previous post you said that it made no sense to store music on a console and insinuated that consoles had small HD's. I just want to be sure that you and others know that this is no longer the case. My xbox has a larger HD then most of my friends laptops.

    Xbox is not just a gaming console. I would say that my 360 is used 95% of the time as a media center (I dont have time to "game").

    To your second point... how can you say that the ability to stream over an xbox 360 would not bring extra revenue? Why is netflix now on 360? I know plenty of people who would pay to have Sirius in their homes. I would have paid double for a service like this when I was in college because my room in my on campus apartment was facing away from the Sirius satellite.

    Sure, I can stream over the net now(I couldnt get Howard's channels over the net back in the day) but that goes to my computer, not my homes entertainment system. Getting Sirius XM into an xbox 360 would be solid gold.

    I do not have an XBOX or a PS3 so I would not know how large the HD's can get which was not necessarly the point but I guess a lead you to believe that. I do have 1.2 tera bytes in my media center.

    I always been a Nintendo fan and yes I know all consoles come with Wi-Fi now but Nintendo Wii does come with a tiny drive.

    Their web site says $2.99 per month for current subscribers and $12.95 for non-subscribers unless is a misleading add.

    Sirius internet streaming is free for subscribers - it's $2.99 for the higher bit rate upgraded stream.

    Let me add a bit more to this. If you have an existing sub, you can purchase another online sub (say for your family member) for $5/mo. You can add high-quality internet for $2.99 more.

    HMMMM. HOW TO GET SIRIUS TO GROW!!

    A BOX OF VIAGRA 2 STRIPPERS AND A BOTTLE OF CHEAP SCOTCH

    and if that doesnt work stream on every phone, Ipod ,computer,and video game.. the future of sirius is to make it hip to the 18-35 age group. have quick easy fast access to sirius radio in and on every media form out there.

    They need to fix that ad.

    I agree with the cheap Scotch and perhaps the 2 strippers...however, SIRI does need more than a box of VIAGRA to recoup...

    Xbox premium hard drive is around 13 gb's. Xbox Elite has a 120 gb hard drive on it. Plenty of storage space.

    SiriXm could easily take the $14 a month I pay rhapsody to keep my Sl2 full and put it in their pocket. That would probably be easier than some of the other ideas I've heard.
