From XM, four representatives attended the meeting: Gary Parsons, Eric Logan, Mark Vendetti, and Jeff Blattner. Latham & Watkins LLP (counsel for XM) also attended the meeting. XM met with the FCC on Wednesday, September 26th.

On Sirius' side, five representatives attended the meeting: Mel Karmazin, Scott Greenstein, David Frear, Patrick Donnelly, and Terry Smith. Representatives from Wiley Rein LLP (Sirius' counsel) also attended the meeting. Sirius met with the FCC on Thursday, September 27th.

During the meeting, both XM and Sirius discussed various aspects of the satellite radio business, including the topics of subscribers and service, content and advertising, technical issues, and business relationships with automobile manufacturers and retail outlets (so pretty much... everything).

Wow E-Lo on the scene with his shitty hair. I wonder how he enjoys pitching the sale of XM when he knows good and damn well he's out the door as "synergy" if it goes through? I hope he told the FCC this was a bad idea and spit in Mels decrepid face.

Decrepi(t) face....... Thats funny, I spit in your moms decrepit face once...... It was quite a while ago but one Monday morning after a Friday night football party she jumped on the hood of my Chevy Nova. I backed out of the shool parking lot and as I drove forward about 20 ft' I hit the brakes ........
She flew skull first on the pavement ( legs spread wide open as always) I stopped the car and I got out then spit on her nasty face. Hacktewwwwie! Last I heard about her she had a kid with autism ......... Dont tell me you are her "Special Olympian" .................. No doubt! Hey Timmy, I think I might know your "real" daddy............. You'll need to make an appointment to visit him though. You're not a felon are you?

What happens to us who bought a "Life Time subscription"? That subject has not come up yet.
I think those who have "Life Time subscriptions" should get all the chanels with no increase in fee's, including video and up coming Wifi internet service.

In no way should you or will you get something you didn't pay for. You never paid for video.

Life time membership is just that a member for life that don't have to pay for new additions to the service that was contracted for as "lifet time"!
So in simple terms, what is added to the service is and should be considered a free upgrade.

From past experience with lifetime memberships at gyms that I've been a member of and they get bought out, the lifetime memberships are no longer valid. Since we've heard nothing about what is going to happen to those people I'd expect them to take it up the ass like the rest of us.

I am sure you will continue to receive all the channels. All the Sirius channels, which is all anyone else will receive, too, for the most part. You will get what you paid for.

This is BS. Sirius just dropped my favorite show about 4 weeks ago. Guess who picked it up? You got it, If I want my show, now I gotta buy an XM unit and subscription. The MAFIA bastards done got me and they'll get you next if this merger flies.

The lifetime subscription has been a huge bargain for me. I am on year 5 of lifetime subscription and I am still on my first radio. By purchasing the lifetime subscription you can now purchase additional radios for $6.99 a month. That boils down to roughly $83 a year for a new subscription. Far less than the $142.45 per year if you never opted to purchase the lifetime subscription. I ended up purchasing two additional radios for $6.99 per month.

I'm not sure if they even offer the lifetime subscription anymore? Someone posted on a blog that you have to call Sirius-XM customer service and request the lifetime subscription.

Here's a link to their regular subscription plans:
