New Catholic programming on Sirius radio

I got a Sirius radio for my New Beetle for Christmas, and from the instant it was in the car, I was in love. There's 2-3 stations for just about any musical genre that you might want to listen to, plus they have EWTN Radio. I listen to Catholic Answers almost every day on the way home from work and enjoy listening to the Q&A sessions on the show. I also love commercial-free music. That's the #1 reason why I wanted sattelite radio - I hate commercials. I don't want to be manipulated into spending my money.

I mostly picked Sirius over XM because I really wanted access to EWTN Radio. Now to have a choice of Catholic programming is going to be wonderful! As long as the new network is Orthodox in its guests and programming, I will tune in.

American Papist blog mentioned this article which discusses the new satellite radio venture:
