They both broadcast NHL right now. XM takes over in 07-08.

XM does have an all hockey talk channel in addition to game broadcasts though. Sirius does not.

Sirius does have a show from 10a-12p every morning on channel 123. The hosts vary, but I know Hradek who does the occassional ESPN.com article is on there sometimes.

XM also has the 'Oprah & Friends' channel as well. That is a big selling point for me! :P :roll:

Wasn't aware of that... thanks for the info. I agree the time is not that great for people that work normal business hours, but I will have to try and catch part of that.

Thanks!

Sirius also streams the show on from its site to subscribers.

The Sirius show is also streamed on NHL.com.

I listen at my desk every day at 10 a.m. Eastern.

It really is a good show.
EJ Hradek is on about twice a week, but the other guys Joe Tolleson, Zig Fricasi and Don LeGreca are really very good.

One of the guys absolutely HATES the NBA...which I think is great.

Sirius has the Martha Stewart "how to committ the perfect felony" channel. Always look forward to that.
