Cinemagic is my favorite channel on Sirius/XM.
It will stop broadcasting on July 1st. and become a online only channel. Help save this unique channel by emailing SiriusXM.

This will be the last straw for me and I've been a subscriber since 2002.

I was told to email Scott.Greenstein@siriusxm.com directly and voice your concerns that Cinemagic is not going to be broadcast anymore.

I have sent off an email to a guy named Jeremy Coleman (jeremy.coleman@siriusxm.com), but no response yet. I found that e-mail somewhere. Should I have sent one to Greenstein also? What the hell, I will send one off to him also. Keep up the good work Terminator840!!

Well that's the final straw for me too.

Cinemagic was the last reason to stick with XM for me. I can get better choices elswhere with all types of other music but what DaveZ created was truly something unique. Reel Time was a fantastic hour with directors talking about their new films at length and Dave's musical taste was unmatched.

Sirius has ruined XM completely now... I'm out.

Thanks Robert Clark,


..... for your perspective. "Cinemagic" is officially gone fim XM's line-up as of today ?

May I ask what are the alternatives to XM ? Pandora ? (are they subscription-based like XM ?) I listen to Live-365 but they are mostly internet-based. The types of devices beyond the 'net that Live-365 suggests don't seem to be as convenient as XM, although I've had a string of "bad luck" with XM's recievers.

Yes, cinemagic has disappeared from the radio dial. I like pandora a lot, you can create custom stations to play what you want, for example I have a John Williams channel and a Bernard Herrmann channel among others.
Its free though they have a pay option that doesn't seem to offer much. I tried playing it over my smartphone app via bluetooth today and it worked like a charm.
I've used slacker radio and their cinema music selection is shockingly small. You will hear nothing but repeats after a few hours.

Thanks. I just posted a comment, and saw many other thoughtful comments.

I just became a subscriber w/ our new car, and loved Cinemagic.

I wonder how they make these decisions. Are they able to track the number of tuners listening to each station, and for how long?

Doug
