XM to Start Internet Radio Service

This is cool, but it would be better if they let current subscribers have the internet feeds for no extra cost.  I mean come on…  How are they going to know if I give my username/password to 5 people? 

xm_sat_logo.jpg imageXM Radio has announced their intention to market their own internet radio station, rebroadcasting (or simulcasting, I guess) the 200+ channels of music that XM subscribers now receive for $8 a month (or $4 if you already get the satellite service). Their intention to launch their own internet radio station clarifies their highly-antagonistic attitude towards the time-shifting software TimeTrax, as well as their decision to remove the USB-enabled version of their radio from the market.
