    More on Sirius XM Radio (SIRI): The company says its total paid subscriber base increased 9% Y/Y to reach 24.4M as the resurgence of the U.S. automobile industry helps bring in first-time subscribers.

    Liberty Media's (LMCA -0.8%) string of high-profile deals (Starz, Sirius XM Radio, Barnes & Noble, Charter) might not be done just yet, according to media industry insiders. The company still has up to $1B in non-core portfolio assets it could sell off and it isn't against the idea of borrowing more to make another key acquisition.

    More on the Charter Communications (CHTR) - Liberty Media (LMCA) deal: Even with four board seats and a sizable stake, analysts thinks the end game for Liberty Media is complete control and a potential merger/spinoff scenario. The deal could have a long-term impact for either Time Warner Cable (TWC) or Cablevision (CVC) and also brings in some interesting possibilities for Sirius XM Radio (SIRI).

    More on Liberty Media (LMCA) - Charter (CHTR) deal: Liberty is reportedly close to agreeing to a deal to buy a 25% stake in Charter for $2.5B from private-equity firms, including Apollo (APO). The move would mark John Malone's return as a major force in U.S. cable TV after he sold Tele-Communications to AT&T for $48B in 1999, and would add to large international acquisitions.

    Satellite radio is just beginning to build its footprint with a large percentage of automobiles now embedded with the technology in a trend which Lazard Capital Markets' Barton Crocket thinks bodes well for Sirius XM Radio (SIRI -0.9%). The analyst calls the chance for a SIRI spinoff from Liberty Media (LMCA +0.8%) a very real possibility in a few years.
