BBC RADIO 1 LAUNCH THIS WEDNESDAY @ 9am
UPDATE: The BBC 1 page on Sirius is active!!!
Wednesday at 9am is when it will kick off. There has been some problems in getting everything to "work right" with the Delay and getting the song info on your Sirius radio to update. Last Friday AM it looked like things were working, but then Friday afternoon some "thing" made them push it back.. I'm told they have BBC 1 at the Sirius HQ's and all the test are working fine, so Wednesday is a go........ (for now)
SIRIUS will launch the acclaimed BBC music channel Radio 1 in America starting this Wednesday at 9 am ET during the channelâ€™s popular Chris Moyles Breakfast Show. SIRIUSâ€™ broadcast of BBC Radio 1 will bring its subscribers their first opportunity to listen to the most influential and highly acclaimed music channel from the UK.
