Heads-up: SiriusXM Music Royalty Fee will increase 2/15

+2 Deal Score
Just a heads-up if anyone is about to sign-up / renew SiriusXM. Looks like their "Music Royalty Fee" will increase to 19.1% starting 2/15/18.

To Our Valued Customers:
Effective as of February 15, 2018, the U.S. Music Royalty Fee will increase from 13.9% to 19.1% of the price of all audio packages which include music channels. Your fee may vary depending on the package and plan term you have chosen and the number of subscriptions on your account.

The U.S. Music Royalty Fee applies to most audio packages* and offsets the royalties payable by SiriusXM to composers, publishers, recording artists, musicians and record labels that hold copyrights to musical works and recordings. The increase is a result of the recent decision by the Copyright Royalty Board of the Library of Congress.

We appreciate your loyalty to SiriusXM and are dedicated to providing our subscribers with the best programming variety and listening experience available anywhere.

Thank you for being a SiriusXM subscriber.

Thanks for letting our community know! We have XM; just itching for a reason to drop their service. I think I found it.

I received the email and I'm finally calling to cancel my subscription. I have the All Access plan I've been paying full price for for years. Whenever I call and try to take advantage of some of the deals listed on SD they tell me my radio is not eligible. I was willing to let that slide but I'm not paying any more. There are too many good services out there. I can increase my data plan a bit on my phone and still spend less money than staying with SiriusXM. I'll be calling them tomorrow to cancel...
