Can't be sure, but around now Sirius is to be upgrading its satellite signal so it offers more channels. However, this enhancement will work only on new receivers especially designed for it. The rest will have to make do with the same channel total as before even though the monthly fee goes up.
So perhaps they are pinging receivers to see which are configured to accept the new channel format.
Of course, it would be nice if a future RHR firmware update were to allow for reception of the full Monty of Sirius channels!
As to the fee increase, there is much going on to virtually ensure that affordable streaming audio will be routinely built into vehicles by mid-to-late decade. So arguably Sirius-XM is figuring to milk the golden cow while the milking is good, then let their aging satellites fall from orbit into the dustbin of history.
