A new study from Bridge Ratings demonstrates a marked increase in interest in satellite radio, particularly Sirius, where Howard Stern will begin broadcasting in January.
The analysis is based on Web site visitors to both siriusradio.com and xmradio.com. Over the past six months, XM's traffic is up 88% and Sirius' has risen 76%. However, what's particularly surprising is the growing chasm between the two. Bridge says that XM's Web site reaches 35 users for every million while Sirius attracts 660 for every million users: more than 18x XM's reach.

Also back on Nov 4th we reported a jump in SIRIUS.com hits read that here
You can read some other info on this at orbitcast.com, to me this did sound a little over the top. That SIRIUS has more then 18x XM's reach. Read what orbicast.com thinks about all this..
Also if you look at the Press Releases from Bridge Rating they say xm.com, now that is a spam page, not xmradio.com but on the charts they use Alexa.com it is for xmradio.com not xm.com
Read all the views and make up your own mind. One cool thing is that both Sat radio pages have jumped, and that is good for Sat radio!
