If you call XM/Sirius and ask about deals and tell them you're considering cancelling (similar to what you'd do for Comcast) they'll usually throw you a bone and offer you something. Last time I did, they gave me a buy 3 months, get 3 months free. I can justify $7 per month for 80's and 90's and the RawDog comedy, but $13-15 is too much.
It's a game they play...
Do you have a smartphone? Spotify and/or Pandora are free.
For those of you that don't want to pay the #13/month fee, call them and ask for a better rate. I have never paid full price for sirius since I signed up. Every time my subscription is up for renewal I call and tell them it's too much and I want to cancel. I get the promo rate of $6/month for the entire year.
I do the same thing for NFL Sunday Ticket on DirecTV. I've never paid more than $29.99 / month for that
damn, no Faction. My subscription ended last month from the 6 months for something like $25 promo i got. I miss listening to the Jason Ellis show on my way home every day but cant justify paying monthly to listen to it.
All those who sub ended just call sirius up and tell them u got a promo 6 months for $25 in the mail. There is no code. I also sometimes tell them I got a 5 months for $19 with something like a comeback code. Been doing this for years and they never ask for proof. Sound quality isn't as good like HD radio but unlike HD radio XM does not annoy me by switching from digital to analog everytime I make a turn.
I think that's exactly what he means. The quality on Sirius/XM is embarrassing (especially for 2013) and has slid downward since the merger. Considering you can stream basically full fidelity from any number of free (or close to free) web-based sources, it's becoming a harder and harder argument to justify spending $13+/month on sat radio.
Cant agree anymore ! Whether you can get xm radio or not, its basically one click from them... im not paying for this
I got lucky, I got in on the lifetime subscription plan when they had it, and it has already paid for itself. Yeah, I wouldn't pay $13/month for it, that's way too much. I agree with everyone that said Pandora and Spotify is the way to go.
Sirius is great and all, but some of the channels are too specific. Like Sirius Hits 1 (Now on channel 2), they usually play the Top 40 hits. Since they don't have any commercials, the same 40 songs cycle through like every 2 hours or so. If I stick to that station every day I drive to work, I'll always hear the exact same songs.
However, for a free two-week no obligation service of Sirius, you should all go for it! I like the service overall, but it's not worth what they are charging now.
