Third, Satellite Radio Playground reports that a Sirius table top radio has been renamed as the Sirius-XM Tabletop Radio. The device previously connected only to Sirius’ premium radio online service but now offers XM radio online capability too.

Fourth, the satellite radio company told some of its retailers that station numbers for Sirius and XM channels will change this spring to more closely match each other, as part of Satellite Radio 2.0. Sirius XM would not comment on the report.

Fifth, production on all Sirius dock and play radios has been discontinued, according to Satellite Radio Playground.
