Golden Tickets[edit]

"XM (not necessarily on High Voltage)" I'm not positive about this edit. I believe Opie and Anthony's intent is to bring aboard 4 more guests to the High Voltage channel because I believe they want to fill it up, although I'm not positive. Has anyone heard anything different?

I felt the necessity to create this page with the announcement that Ron and Fez has joined the High Voltage channel on XM. There is still a few details that I don't yet know and hopefully someone will be able to fill in the blanks, such as:

  • First air date of High Voltage
  • Exact schedule of replays

The Virus[edit]

I'm editing this article a couple days in advance, since there won't be any more live programing on High Voltage until the name change anyway.--XMBRIAN 06:18, 18 November 2006 (UTC)

Opie and Anthony Suspension[edit]

Does anyone know what will replace Opie and Anthony's time slots while they are on suspension for 30 days? According to the XM Satellite Radio press release they have ceased airing all O&A programming during the suspension but they did not indicate what programming would be replacing O&A. 20:13, 15 May 2007 (UTC)

--Ron and Fez replays (3 hours each) will be played, with the most recent show looped on weekdays until 12pm eastern the following day, and replays from the week looped on weekends.

O&A back to being an Excusive to The Virus[edit]

with WXRK flipping formats, does this mean that the CBS side is gone and O&A returns to being only on Satellite Radio only for now. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Boutitbenza 69 9 (talkcontribs) 05:29, 10 March 2009 (UTC)

The Joe Rogan Experience[edit]

Someone needs to edit the list. The Joe Rogan Experience is on the channel now Iscream22 (talk) 16:28, 23 May 2011 (UTC)

It's been added to the list of programs. I'm just waiting for the last bit of schedule for Sunday 3a-6a ET to be added to the Sirius XM website so I can add it in it's entirety to the weekend schedule here. It'll be done by tomorrow, absolute. The preliminary schedule can be seen HERE until then. And for future reference, new posts on talk pages always go on the bottom of the page.

Lack of sources for any information[edit]

"For two months, High Voltage repeatedly looped two different, 40-second announcements with no background music touting Opie and Anthony's return. At midnight ET on 2004-10-01, the loop was interrupted to air "Opie and Anthony: Ungagged". The original channel name High Voltage was decided by one of XM's lawyers, despite them telling Opie and Anthony they had time to think of a name. The decision was made without consulting Opie or Anthony when XM decided to put out a press release that afternoon. Opie and Anthony premiered on 2004-10-04 where their show ran from 6-10 AM ET, with replays throughout the day, and blocks of music at night which usually consisted of an active rock playlist. Due to technical restrictions on XM's master computer in Washington, D.C., no previously recorded show on XM is able to run past 12 AM ET. This was the main reason why High Voltage had to have "variety hours" and Worst of O&As airing at night time, due to the replays either ending at 10 PM or 11 PM ET. Up until early Spring 2005, the channel would run stand-up comedy bits during the commercial breaks. In the show's early days on XM, most of these bits were from George Carlin. Carlin's spots were so frequent it caused listener complaints. In March 2005, they moved their start and end time back an hour, beginning to air from 7-11 AM ET each weekday. This was done to encourage more west coast participation. End of premium channel[edit] Originally launched as a premium subscription channel, XM abandoned the premium charge in April 2005, making High Voltage a standard part of the XM platform. High Voltage became available to all XM subscribers, as did XM Radio Online. In exchange, XM increased the monthly rates of its subscribers. However, they offered a pre-payment plan beforehand that allowed subscribers to pay the same rate for a long-term period."

- There are zero sources for any of this, a link to to the episode would be good or some other source but otherwise I can't reliably use this information — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:40, 15 July 2016 (UTC)
