There is no way I would renew that subscription the quality is very poor, they still have DJ's yapping away which is almost as bad as a commercial, and I swear they only have 40 songs in their library.

I too stream pandora! Best thing out there right now!

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

I have had XM since it first came out. Bought a car and home kit.
I agree the sound is mediocre, but the fact that I can travel in different provinces and states, while listening to my same rock stations is key.

Since XM & Sirius merged I noticed immediately that the talk (chatter) increased, which annoys me.
However I'll still renew.

When I want quality sound, I pop in DVD's for the 5.1 surround sound experience which is far better than FM, Satellite, CD, MP3 or cassette.
(obviously the cassette is gone in the GC, but still have it in my Pacifica)

Now if only I could get my turntable to stop skipping when I'm driving
I'd really have some quality sound)

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

No way. They attempted to auto renew me without my permission on my JKU...using a credit card that I just so happened cancelled the week before. Prior to auto renewing, i could not get someone on the phone; after the card expired, they called me...you can imagine the fun I had with that call. Their business practices borders on extortion...no way im doing business with a company that probably hires collection agents with brass knuckles as their customer service reps!

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

I definitely don't want auto-renewal.

My credit card allows me to generate virtual card numbers with specific credit limit and expiration date.

If I give them a card number that expires in 2 months - can they try to use it to renew it a year later without contacting me (they wouldn't know this is a "virtual" card and may assume I already received replacement with the same number)? Attempt for renewal will fail of course but I don't want to deal with collections.

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

I will not renew mine. I stream pandora or listen to my mp3's on my Atrix, no need for sat radio anymore. Even listening to radio stations over the internet on the phone is better. I can listen to my local radio stations with an aux cable (using the built in eq so sound quality is better) from anywhere.

I hate paying for stuff that I can get better for free.

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

My free subscription expired recently. Since I don't drive the Jeep that much (6k/yr) I certainly will not pay the "regular price". I am waiting to see what they offer. It had better be good!!!

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

Mine expires next month. I have received 2 renewal notices so far. Both offers were $157.83 for 1 year (1 mo free), $301.32 for 2 years (3 mos free) and $444.81 for 3 years (5 mos free). Since I only listen to 2 stations I plan to let mine expire unless I get the 5 / $25 or 12 / $75 like Bign1976 and UNCjeepWK2 were offered.

If you think it would do any good, I'm in. I think it's like trying
