Carmel Group Does Not Look Very Hard

April 3, 2007

The Carmel Group has issued a study sponsored by the NAB. In that report they state the following:

The report's author, Carmel Group Chairman Jimmy Schaeffler, focuses much of the analysis on debunking the most generally acceptable argument put forth by Sirius and XM in favor of a merger - that the competitive marketplace includes terrestrial radio, MP3s, Internet radio and music-enabled cellphones.

Schaeffler notes that while those services may become competitors to Sirius-XM in the future, not one of them is "substitutable" for satellite radio today.

"[We are] hard-pressed to find any instance where Sirius and/or XM acted in a competitive manner against [these] so-called digital competitors," claims the report.

Perhaps they forgot this one..........and that's just one such ad. Stay tuned for more on this new NAB sponsored report

  • It is true the ad you mentioned ran -- but only a couple of times and only in trade publications, not for general public consumption.

    The ad was withdrawn after only a couple of appearances in response to the RIAA lawsuit.

    In general, neither company has advertised against any of the so-called "competitors" Mel has mentioned. Clearly, the companies have not viewed Ipods, Wimax, HD Radio, and cell phones as "competition".
