So I was happy to see Cinemagic move to Sirius from XM, but last night as I drove around and tuned to that channel, all I heard was 15 mins of commercials, with some loop -- never did it do the actual channel. Did they kill it?

I'm wondering the same thing and couldn't find anything about it on the Sirius website. They had touted Cinemagic returning to the line-up after New Year's Day after a few weeks of Christmas music and then only kept it on for about a week.


Over the past few days it's been nothing but a loop commercial promoting the grand return on January 15th of some piece of crap called "The Strobe", 24/7 disco drivel. No indication whether Cinemagic will be sent to another channel or not.


As a Sirius subscriber, I was happy to see Cinemagic moved to the Sirius lineup due to the XM "merger". But it looks like that was an extremely short-lived benefit.

Well, great. The only thing I looked forward to from the merger, and they took it away from me. Good times. My radios (most of them in new cars from last year) don't support the XM add in, the channel I wanted is gone...


Sirius, you suck.

According to someone who posted over at Orbitcast it's supposedly coming back soon:

"Cinemagic is returning to the Sirius side in late January or February according to Cinemagic's program director. So don't worry. I have XM and got XM exclusively for Cinemagic, which in my opinion is the most unique channel out there. I'm counting my blessings that Cinemagic survived the merger. This change does not affect the XM side where Cinemagic is still on XM 76."


Look for the username "Starshifter" for the actual message:

And while the Cinemagic page does mention The Strobe taking over, the fact that the logo and channel description remain leads me to believe it just might be true.
