View Full Version : What Happened to XM Stations?
2nd November 2006, 15:47
Yesterday I was able to listen to the XM station "Ethel" using WinAMP or AOL Radio and now it has disappeared. It was the one station I listened too on there and now its gone. Does anyone know if this is permanent or just a temporary problem?

it should be still there under "AOL Radio featuring XM" unless you disabled that category in the Online Services part of the tree.

I have the AOL radio featuring XM, Ethel is just no longer in the list. Darn. That was one of the 3 stations I could tolerate for more than a few songs in a row.

I used to find it under the category "*XM Satellite Radio*" but it is no longer. I can still listen if I sign into XM's website but I much prefer Winamp.

Where here at Winamp Forums has nothing to do with what gets into the AOL content/list. That is basically an AOL decision.

On Nov 9th 2006, I've sent that email to AOL XM radio with the website based e-mail
Lately, there has been a change in the XM radio listing in Winamp. There used to be a station called Ethel and it is now unavailable.
I find that quite disappointing that AOL lowers the quantity/quality of channels available within Winamp which is an AOL product too.
A few months ago (March), the same thing happened with XM Chill shortly appearing in the lineup and then being wiped out
I urge AOL to at least keep a page in Winamp forum telling when there's a change in XM channel listing. Some kind of public announcement.
I'm not the only one asking about that situation and being angry at it. Here's 1 thread talking about that in Winamp Forums and I believe there are more.
I'm sure that it's all about money for bandwidth/push more people to subscribe to XM but we still pay you for the PRO version of Winamp and bear with the ads within Winamp. A person won't subscribe to XM satellite when he can't find good music in the channels found in Winamp for example.
I was thinking about subscribing to XM based on my Ethel experience in Winamp but now you're denying other folks like me to discover that popular station.
Think about that.
I haven't received an answer yet which is very sad and tells a lot about their customer service

Grrr.... :mad: most of the stations are no longer available anymore.
I am left with only 19 (((XM))) stations and 7 AOL stations!
What's the point of the categories now? Most of them are empty or repetitive.... :cry:
