One of the conditions put into the 2008 merger of satellite radio companies Sirius and XM by the Federal Communications Commission was that the merged company had to allow unaffiliated third parties to lease channels on a long-term basis. On Monday, nearly four years after the merger was first announced, the FCC announced the condition has been implemented at Sirius XM, and listed the first third-party lessees.


The merger between Sirius Satellite Radio and XM Satellite Radio was approved three years ago. One condition of the merger was a 4% set-aside of spectrum for diverse programming not owned or controlled by Sirius XM. During the process several companies and organizations came forward with the desire to utilize that spectrum. A huge part of the delay was the inability of the FCC to figure out a way to decide upon who would get the spectrum. Ultimately the decision was left to Sirius XM, and we now finally have five groups that will offer programming on seven channels.
