We’ve heard a lot about Sirius XM 2.0 adding Spanish channels, but according to our brothers at Satellite Radio Playground, there will be a number of new rock stations and even a George Carlin comedy channel added as well.
The satellite radio company refers to the new stations as “SiriusXM +XTRA Channels.” They will only be available through new Sirius XM products coming in the fall and in 2012, or online.
