SiriusXM

A place to discuss broadband, streaming video, cable, and satellite services (not programming). Bitch about your crappy cable, satellite or streaming video provider here! This is also the place to talk about channel line-ups, packages, and special offers.

SiriusXM

Post by Taco » Tue Nov 15, 2022 12:54 pm

So I've been enjoying SXM online streaming, via iPhone and iPad. It's much easier subscribing through the App store or Google Play store since payments are handled by them and not SXM directly. Thankfully I have unlimited data via AT&T and just hook my phone up in the car with a cable. Not ideal but it beats dealing with SXM directly. They are incredibly difficult to cancel with. Constantly badgering you with offers of deals to keep you (some actually do this for a better price) but they don't make it easy for you to leave if you wanted to leave so that is preventing me from signing up for in-car service.

I've been a subscriber since 2005. I've only tried to quit once. They offered me six months free if I stayed. So I did

I have two subscriptions. One in the car and another for a portable I use in the house. Once I dropped the portable and broke it. I called and said I wanted to cancel that subscription. They sent me a free new receiver just to keep me on.

SiriusXM a waste of money from the first day of broadcasting.

It all depends where you live. Here, I listen to SXM almost exclusively. The only OTA signal that ie worthwhile is CBC Radio I.

If I lived in a large market area like Toronto or Montreal, I wouldn't need satellite radio. When we're wintering in the Tampa Bay area, I never use SXM.

I use it on the drive to Florida. Driving through the south radio is all political rants, cowboy music religion and NASCAR.

I personally don’t pay anything to listen to internet radio on my smartphone. I listen to thousands of stations from radio apps like GotRadio, 113.fm, IHeart Radio just to name a few. I just connect the Bluetooth in the car and it’s like magic thousands of radio stations. My favorite stations are 70’s and 80’s music stations. I’m 67 years old and like most that age on a fixed budget. I can’t afford a luxury such as Satellite radio. My smartphone bill is only $25. a month and my data is free with no limits. You must have a lot of money to afford that luxury but you’re probably a doctor or lawyer. Anyway enjoy 😊.

I'm neither a Doctor nor a Lawyer. I'm just a retired member of the working class, whose telephone is on the kitchen wall and doesn't do streaming.

I signed up for NETFlix, but there are few things there that I want to see.

No BMW. I only buy vehicles built in North America, by Union workers

I would love to get Sirius XM online again. When they changed my On star module out at the repair shop, they fucked up my Sirius XM module. I am still pissed about it.

The streaming sub is pretty decent. Plus it has channels you can't get on the satellite version.
