Sirius XM expects peak subscriber total by year


Audio satellite service Sirius XM says it expects a net pick-up of 1.3M subscribers for 2010 as a whole, arriving at a new estimated total of 20.1M. It also says it has 19.5M on board at the moment, which would mean President/CEO Mel Karmazin is expecting to add 600K by the end of December. A conference call to discuss both financial and subscription results is expected to be scheduled in early November.
