I have enjoyed satellite radio for the last three and a half years. Who wants to listen to advertisements for music sandwiched between advertisements for products when there are so many other options?
There’s nothing quite like genre-sorted, slightly random playlists of singles peppered with a few b-sides. Pandora, i Tunes, Spotify, Grooveshark, Turntable.fm… they’re all great on a desktop, workable on mobile, but get most into a car and you’re a slave to cell signal strength.
The merger was not good for artists or fans, but who cares about them, right?
And their policy is not to notify monthly subscribers before their subscription is auto-renewed.
You can thank me later for saving you a few hundred bucks a year.
I’m not ashamed to admit I probably would have gone on paying .99/mo.
I made sure that I was purchasing a single year of service, and made sure Sirius XM knew they did not have my authorization to charge my card after my year was up.
7.88 per year is waaaaaaay too much for satellite radio.
