State below in reasonable detail why Forms 10-K, 20-F, 11-K, 10-Q, 10-D, N-SAR, N-CSR, or the transition report or portion thereof, could not be filed within the prescribed time period.
Sirius XM Radio Inc. (the Company) has determined that it is unable to file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended September 30, 2008 (the Form 10-Q) by the prescribed due date. On July 28, 2008, Vernon Merger Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sirius Satellite Radio Inc., merged with and into XM Satellite Radio Holdings Inc. (XM Holdings), whereupon XM Holdings became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sirius Satellite Radio Inc., which changed its name to Sirius XM Radio Inc. Since that time, the Company has worked as expeditiously as possible to finalize its first post-merger Form 10-Q. The Company has just recently completed its review of the required purchase accounting adjustments and the impairment charge to be recorded in connection with the merger, and the Company is in the process of finalizing its Form 10-Q to reflect those items. The Company intends to file its Form 10-Q with the SEC as promptly as practicable and is presently unaware of any circumstances that would prevent it from filing its Form 10-Q on or before the fifth calendar day following the prescribed due date in compliance with Rule 12b-25.
This notification includes forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. The words expects and intends and similar terms and phrases are used in this notification to identify forward-looking statements, including statements regarding the estimated timing for the filing of the Companys Form 10-Q. Risks, uncertainties and assumptions that could affect the Companys forward-looking statements include, among other things, the time needed for the Company to finalize and file its Form 10-Q. Unless required by law, the Company expressly disclaims any obligation to update publicly any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

Attachment 1 to Form 12b-25
(all amounts in thousands)
On July 28, 2008, Vernon Merger Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sirius Satellite Radio Inc., merged with and into XM Satellite Radio Holdings Inc. (XM Holdings), whereupon XM Holdings became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sirius Satellite Radio Inc., which changed its name to Sirius XM Radio Inc. (the Company). The results of XM Holdings operations will be included in the Companys consolidated financial statements as part of the Companys Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended September 30, 2008 (the Form 10-Q). Accordingly, the Company expects, primarily as a result of the merger, to have a significant change in its results of operations from the corresponding periods for fiscal year 2007. Subscriber revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2008 and 2007 was $456,357 and $226,844, respectively, an increase of 101%, or $229,513. Of this increase, $181,153 was attributable to the merger and the remaining increase was primarily attributable to the growth of subscribers. For the nine months ended September 30, 2008 and 2007, subscriber revenue was $978,516 and $627,275, respectively, an increase of 56%, or $351,241. Of this increase, $181,153 was attributable to the merger and the remaining increase was primarily attributable to the growth of subscribers. The Companys results were also impacted by required purchase accounting adjustments and an impairment charge to goodwill.
