It's official, Opie & Anthony have re-signed with Sirius XM Radio Inc. for a two-year deal, it was announced on the air today. The value of the deal were described as being "about the same" as their original contract with XM.
To understand why there was confusion yesterday between Opie's and Anthony's individual online statements - Anthony had signed first, while Opie didn't finalize his contract with Sirius XM until earlier this morning, it was announced on the air.
The duo expressed frustration with the contract terms, though said they were happy to continue on satellite radio. While money was obviously an issue in the negotiations, there were other non-financial aspects of the contract that Opie & Anthony expressed frustration with not getting agreement on (such as studio size).
"They made us really happy at XM with a lot of extra things," said Opie, comparing the conditions at Sirius XM headquarters to their previous studios with XM Satellite Radio.
Either way, it looks like fans will continue to get Opie & Anthony on their satellite radios for another two-years.
