Here is some cool info about the patterns of SIRIUS and XM Subs..
...While Sternâ€™s fans will almost certainly latch onto Sirius, formidable competitor XM Radio is quickly adding subscribers of its own. As the two providers jockey for positioning, their competition for various market niches is yielding very different audience profiles.
- The online behavior of Sirius Satellite Radio Owners demonstrates a penchant for higher-end goods and services compared to owners of XM Radio. Sirius owners are 40 percent more likely than the average internet user to visit Jewelry/Luxury Goods/Accessories sites and 13 percent more likely to visit Fragrances/Cosmetics sites (see Table 1). They are also 22 percent more likely to visit Online Trading sites. Likely a result of Sirius Radioâ€™s broadcasting partnership with the National Football League, Sirius owners are also 16 percent more likely to visit Sports sites.
- Owners of XM Radio exhibit a high propensity to visit travel-related sites. They are 89 percent more likely to visit Car Rental sites and 45 percent more likely to visit Airline sites (see Table 2).
