Did a search on this, most of what I found was from last year...


Which receivers do you guys have? Are they flaky? Are you happy with the service/quality/variety of the stations?

:nod: :rant: I'm really starting to get fed up with all the commercials on local radio. Every time I turn the thing on, or switch to a different station it's some numbnuttz DJ talking about how bad his sex life is, or how screwed up this world is, or how stupid politicians are, or....you get the point. Or how about the latest energy drink that's gonna get you two chicks at the same time. If it's not that, it's the same song being played over and over and over.

Dishnetwork gives you the Sirius channels on their TV service. Won't help you outside your house, in the car, etc. but nice for no extra charge.

Local radio sucks here too. To many commercials and talking and not enough music :thumbd:

Only thing is if XM is anything like the music channels on digital cable I am not so sure how good it will be. If you like rock lets say its a mix of all types of rock not just what you would be looking for :idunno:

Pick Your Service Plan:


Monthly Service Plan:
XM offers the lowest monthly subscription in satellite radio: Only $9.99/month. No Contracts. No Gimmicks.


Multi-Year Service Packages:
Lock in XM's lowest rates with 2, 3, 4, or 5 year pre-paid packages. Save at least 10% with no obligation. You can cancel at any time and receive a prorated refund of your unused subscription.


Family Plan:
Thinking about getting another XM radio? With the XM Family Plan, it's only $6.99/month per radio for your 2nd-5th XM receivers.

Getting it put in this weekend finally. The $ I have to spend to stay away from advertising bullshit. All I watch at home is film to avoid commercials and that costs more than anything else on cable :(

XM has commercials now too... At least it did when I had the free trial from December thru February in the Accord... :idunno:
Some stations have light advertising from what I hear, many stations just play music.

I have sirius in my jeep. No commercials, a whole lot of channels, all the nfl games broadcast live. I got a free satellite receiver and antenna when I bought my clarion radio from crutchfield so I gave it a try. I like it. It was great while driving to Michigan because I didn't have to keep searching for a new channel every 50 miles. No problems. Haven't dealt with the portable units yet.

Carsound magazine just did a long term review of XM and Sirius. 6 people were given sattelite radio, 3 XM, 3 Sirius. All of them virtually abandoned FM and CD's. After 3 months, the services were switched. After 6 months, all 6 wanteed the Sirius subscription and 4 of the 6 stated Sirius sounded better, the other 2 had no preference. All 6 voted Sirius' content superior.

If sports are your thing, Sirius broadcasts NFL, NBA and NHL games while XM has Nascar.

All 6 people in the study now have Sattelite radio subscriptions, they were spread around the country and the test subscriptions were paid and the providers had no idea tehy were being evaluated.
