On the HD Radio question:

"Although the Commission found it unnecessary to impose a condition
requiring the inclusion of hybrid digital radio technology in SDARS
receivers, it recognized that important questions have been raised about
hybrid digital radio that warrant further examination in a separate
proceeding. The Commission therefore committed to initiating a notice of
inquiry within 30 days after adoption of the merger order to gather
additional information on the issues."

Also, three months after the merge, they have to offer a la carte
service. Craig will approve. And they have to pay up $19.5M of fines.
