New SiriusXM Channel Lineup

Update 5/3: One last minute change as EnLighten gains a temporary reprieve from its move to Internet Only status. The channel will remain on the Channel 18 slot reserved for Limited Engagement channels.

Original Report 4/25: SiriusXM has revealed its new channel lineup taking effect on Wednesday, May 4.

Sirius XM Sirius XM Channel Lineup Changes 2011 Where Did Go

The new lineup consolidates many of the channels on the same number on both systems. Among the changes are the merger of Willie’s Place and The Roadhouse into one channel, the addition of Sirius Hits 1 and 20 on 20 to both services, and the move of Enlighten to Internet Only on the music side. Formerly XM Only The Power gains a spot on the Sirius lineup, the traffic/weather channels are trimmed from 12 to 8, and consolidation of Sirius Left and America Left into SiriusXM Left on the satellites with additional programming of SiriusXM Left Plus online.

No word on when the new leased channels will appear, but Channels 141 to 147 appear to be set aside from them. The new lineup also does not take into account any pending changes to the Canadian channels once the merger of Sirius Canada and XM Canada is complete. SiriusXM has a FAQ guide to all the changes here.
