WASHINGTON and NEW YORK – XM Satellite Radio and SIRIUS Satellite Radio highlighted additional support the two companies have received for their pending merger. The new comments further illustrate the substantial and wide ranging benefits that the combination would offer consumers, including more programming options, lower prices and individually tailored packages.

These new endorsements add to the growing list of individuals, businesses and organizations, such as the League of Rural Voters, the NAACP, the League of United Latin American Citizens (LULAC) and the National Council of Women's Organizations, among others, that support the merger. Recent support includes:
