The company had its origins in the 1988 formation of the American Mobile Satellite Corporation (AMSC), a consortium of several organizations originally dedicated to satellite broadcasting of telephone, fax, and data signals.In 1992, AMSC established a unit called the American Mobile Radio Corporation dedicated to developing a satellite-based digital radio service; this was spun off as XM Satellite Radio Holdings, Inc. The satellite service was officially launched on September 25, 2001. While the satellite receiver radio service was its primary product, XM operated several audio and data services, and advertising.On July 29, 2008, XM and former competitor Sirius Satellite Radio formally completed their merger, following U. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) approval, forming Sirius XM Radio, Inc. XM's primary business was satellite radio entertainment.XM carried music, news (both simulcast and syndicated programming), sports, talk radio, comedy (both stand-up and radio shows), and even radio drama.In addition, XM used to broadcast local weather and traffic conditions in its larger markets. To receive satellite radio programming, a customer was required to purchase a receiver. With a service commitment, it was possible to get a simple receiver for free.Monthly packages started at US.99/month but after adding multiple sports channels (which was mandatory to have at that time) the monthly subscription changed to US.49/month (changed since 2011 from US.95/month) with add-on "family" radios at US.99/month.A signal was likely sent that effectively de-authorized your radio and boom, your channels were all gone, but maybe not ALL gone.
