The Torch (XM)
|Frequency||XM 31 (online only)|
|First air date||2001|
|Owner||XM Satellite Radio|
Despite the Torch's time on XM, it's proven to be one of the platform's lesser performing channels. The Torch was not carried on the XM Radio Canada platform. In addition to this, the Torch had been pre-empted for Christmas music during the holidays. On April 17, 2006, the Torch's poor performance led to its removal from the XM satellites. The station was then only broadcast on XM Radio Online as well as on DirecTV on channel 829. The broadcast on DirecTV ended on July 15, 2008, leaving it an online service only.
Sirius Radio had a competing station named "Sirius Revolution" but while the production quality of that station was typically seen as better than The Torch, that station was also removed in Sirius' new 2007 lineup on February 14.
