Talk/Entertainment Channels might get bump up in Bandwidth & Sound Quality
As you may have noticed, most non-music channels do not sound as good as the music ones. The reason for this is the music stations are at or around 112kbps (kilobits
per second), and the talk stations are lower around 64kbps. This is the same technology as MP3, the higher kbps the larger the file. I have a source that tells me on Sept 29th some Entertainment channels will get a bump up in bandwidth
. This will make these stations sound better. If you own a replay unit with time shifting, you will notice that on a music station you will get 44min of record time, if you are on a non-music station you will get over and hour of record time.. This is because of the lower bandwidth, So when the new line-up kicks in, listen for better sounding talk/entertainment coming soon.. The stations that might get this upgrade, "Raw Dog", "Sirius Stars", "Radio Disney", and "Out Q"
