At one point I got a year free because they screwed up and double billed me on a card I had specifically asked to be removed.

    I see it as a dying breed. They are struggling to keep people signed up. I admit there are great channels, but between pod casts, spotify, soundcloud, pandora, etc...people have too many options.
    5 years now, same offer every couple days. Its obnoxious. Their sound quality sucks and it costs way too much. In their early days I was a subscriber for years, before bluetooth audio and smartphones. Its just gotten too expensive and too lousy.

    I think the (IMO) poor sound quality is what really chapped my buns. You already give up some quality with MP3 and BT streaming, but satellite sounded like it was barely better than FM. Certainly worse the HDFM.

    Not trying to hijack this thread. By all means the programming is great and if you want it then you want it. I think we just started a tangent by accident.

    Is that Yahoo?! Eww I wouldn't dare be using yahoo after that mess they were in when it's basically guaranteed that your account info was at one point compromised. Now that Verizon bought them maybe it'll be better.

    They send me those emails too religiously and I HAVE the freaking service. So annoying.

    In that case, not much of a problem. Lol just don't link it to any accounts! Those guys have serious security issues

    Spotify Premium autodownloads saved songs when you're on WiFi so that replaced the radio all together at this point and saves my data consumption. #win

    Only the 'Travel link' uses Sirius, and that's only if you have the Navigation. It adds points of interests to the maps, and you can get weather updates, and shopping/ parking and other info.

    Man, thats the truth. It's like listening to celophane rattling in the wind, the compression is so ugly. The only reason I can think to keep it is if you like to listen to Stern. Personally, I wouldn't pay a dime a year for it.
