FOX wants SIRIUS to call them.....

Thursday, January 05, 2006

(via Billboard Radio Monitor)
Fox News Radio senior VP Kevin Magee tells Billboard Radio Monitor that he’s still ready to take a call from Sirius. “They’ve got my cell phone number, but I haven’t had a call from them yet,� he told Monitor in a brief interview yesterday.
Magee quashed the rumor that XM received a sweetheart deal from Fox News because of XM's relationship with DirecTV. Both Fox and DirecTV are controlled by Rupert Murdoch's News Corp.
"That's just nonsense," he told The Hollywood Reporter. "We never asked a penny more from Sirius than from XM," he said.
Sirius did not return reporters calls seeking comment. READ MORE

One thing this artical did not talk about and the reporter forgot to ask the FOX VP, was why FOX and XM took out "co-ads" (that XM and FOX paid for) that Said, "There's one sure way to get Fox News Channel on satellite radio in '06 Subscribe to XM." (more) It is hard to belive anything that comes out of a FOX spokesperson after they play games like that when SIRIUS and FOX were still in so called talks, you can think what you want about this deal or no deal and chat about it here

Why do you feel the need to spread misinformation?

XM and FNC do joint ads? Why not, two brands trying to get the word out.

You are showing yourself to be a fanboy. I love Sirius too but come on.

Why do you want to make this look like Fox is trying to screw Sirius? Are you on the payroll or what?

You post misinformation and then you want to spin it?

I love Sirius too, but come on.

I'm not on the SIRIUS pay roll. I would call myself a fan of SIRIUS, I run a blog called getsiriusinfo, all about SIRIUS. You can read this as you like, I gave facts, XM and FOX ran these ads, at times I put MY reaction to a story on MY blog. Don't like it don't read it. I think it is odd that a company who wants to give XM and SIRIUS the "same deal", why would they run ads like this? Now if XM ran it on their own thats one thing. Along with SIRIUS PR and links to other news articals I post rumors and "insider" info, you can take it as you wish... If I get some info from someone who is a source inside SIRIUS I will post it and call it inside info. Are you on the FOX payroll?

Please - you sound like a real Sirius toady. Everything I can find says that Sirius was offered the same deal as XM and Sirius turned it down - proving that they don't care about their subscribers who they KNOW listened to Fox News. I, for one, have cancelled my Sirius subscription and will be putting XM into my Ford Explorer - even though it was pre-wired for Sirius by Ford.

Hey NotASiriusToady, enjoy XM. I also have the XM service and own more shares of XM then SIRIUS, I just happen to have a inside source at SIRIUS, I enjoy both services. It is also nice to see that your IP address has 3 postings with 3 names on the page!
