XM Satellite Radio Holdings Inc., the largest U.S. pay-radio company, said its quarterly loss widened as it boosted spending on programs and marketing. Sales surged as it lured 65% more subscribers than a year earlier. The fourth-quarter net loss was $188.2 million, or 93 cents a share, compared with a loss of $162.9 million, or $1.12, a year earlier, Washington, D.C.-based XM said. Revenue more than doubled to $83.1 million, helped by holiday sales. XM Satellite shares rose 50 cents to $31.

XM Satellite Radio Holdings Inc.'s chief executive said the company made enough sales during the holiday period to meet analysts' estimates for 20,000 to 30,000 subscribers to the satellite radio service by Monday. Shares of XM rival Sirius Satellite Radio Inc. gained 8%, led by expectations the companies' sales will prove pessimists wrong, analysts said. Both money-losing companies had missed subscriber estimates after delaying the introduction of service.
