Re: Free Sirius almost over, are you going to renew?

I got a little excited when there was an update to the uconnect app on my phone; but it wasn't streaming related.

It just was Defect fixes, help Text revisions and vehicle image revisions.

Hopefully, one day soon it will come.

Enjoying the Sat goodness. When the year is up, I may just use streaming audio from the internet again.
I had also been offered $50.00 for 1 year and included the online access.
I am in Canada so it may be different in the US.

Sirius keeps upping the rate which is OK to a certain extent. I was paying for both my wife's and my Sirius. It was costing over $200.00 per year. We were getting the online access included.

The last straw for me was when they upped the rate again plus wanted to charge an additional $50 each for the online access which was previously free.

I kind of kick myself for not taking the $50 offer but I was pissed and being stubborn at that point. I will learn to live without it. We don't have as much options in Canada and data on our phones cost more.

Re: Free Sirius almost over, are you going to renew?

What is their going rate now for renewals? As others have said, I like it but not enough to pay full price

I recently cancelled the subscription in my BMW. Sirius called me almost every day, sometimes twice a day week. I finally answered and they offered 6 months for $24, I countered with 1 year for $50. They didn't accept, so I hung up. They haven't called back for a couple weeks now.

Re: Free Sirius almost over, are you going to renew?

I did not renew my subscription. It expired a few weeks ago. I used it a lot with my old audio set up, but now I use Spotify as my main source of music.

Re: Free Sirius almost over, are you going to renew?

I've had satellite radio, XM or Sirius in all my vehicles since 2005. I will say that the sound quality is getting worse and worse. If it doesn't improve by my renewal time come March, they will lose a loyal customer. They should get rid of that Howard Stern character and put the millions saved towards improving their sound quality, service and equipment.

Re: Free Sirius almost over, are you going to renew?

Mine expired on 31 July. They just happened to turn it back on in the middle of last week while I was on vacation so the traffic feature suddenly started working again while we were driving home from NC. There was a letter waiting informing us that they gave a two week "freebie" and "wouldn't we come back?". The offer didn't even mention traffic and that would be the only thing I'd be interested in...no way would I be listening to their "radio" material when I have a very large song collection that is much higher quality with me at all times.

I always get a year for $84 (including taxes) ... but, this does not include traffic.

I did not renew, and traffic shows up on my nav maps anyway.

That 'splains it. No letter for me though.

Re: Free Sirius almost over, are you going to renew?

At this point I don't think I would renew, although I just got my 2014, Not enough variety of the music I like.... Has some good Rock stations, but other than that (for my taste) not much when compared to the music played on the local radio (other than the benifits we know of Siri vs radio)....

Thought about renewing but ended up just using Pandora One. Everyone in the family can benefit from my subscription.
