No more online listening unless you were dumb enough to pay for a lifetime or 3 year subscription. If you do want listening online- you have to pay 2 or 3 more dollars a month.


Call tomorrow. Cancel. Tell them why.


Why do companies do this to themselves?

Personally I don't think they are going to last
You have XM people mad because of the new line up and for the same reason Sirius people mad.
Not many new cars being sold and that's where they get many new customers with the free trial
I may just go back to cd's or mp3 player in car because I'm not so sure it's worth the $$ anymore

I know where to DL Stern shows for free, daily.. That plus a zune or an ipod or any other MP3 player and you have it made. I'm canceling as soon as they enforce this.

By the way, it's not a rumor, call and ask them and they'll tell you they're hiking the price up. It's not worth it.

I'm not going to pay to listen to music or any type of talk radio. I can get enough stations on my radio now. Somebody heard me say that and said it's the same as cable or satellite on TV. Nope! Without cable or satellite I might be able to get maybe 4 TV stations. On my FM dial right now I could probably get 10 or 15 stations. And probably that many on AM. And I'm in a rural area!
