Washington - Jun 25, 2007 - The FCC has issued a request for comments on the proposed XM/Sirius merger. The NPRM notes that the original satellite digital audio radio services were created on the basis that a single entity could not own both licenses. The FCC seeks comment on whether the language in the original ruling constitutes a binding rule and, if so, whether the Commission should waive, modify or repeal the prohibition. If the prohibition is waived, the FCC will then decide if the merger serves the public interest.
