$hit i think that they are going to file for bankruptcy, this sucks, hope they get the app out first, i was in a car for like 15 min and all it was all commercials, that was annoying...
I have been a Sirius subscriber since June '05 in our Jeep with a lifetime subscription. I have also been a subscriber to XM in both of our Prius Hybrids since '06. Like you... I cannot stand to listen to terrestrial radio anymore... and if I have my way, I will never tune to one again. The advertisements are so insulting to one's intelligence... I would rather listen to road noise than put up with another radio ad again.Do not write off Howard Stern and SiriusXM just yet. Mel Karmazin is running the show and he knows how to get it done. There are two companies that are interested in purchasing SiriusXM though, one of them being EchoStar. I have been a Sirius subscriber since September of 05 and I tried listening to terestrial radio and I just cannot, the two do not compare and for me to lose SiriusXM would be devastating.
I think Mel will pull another rabbit out of the hat though and get it done. Tuesday February 17th we will know everything we need to know. SiriusXM has to come up with 41 million to pay off a debt, Echostar's chairman wants to buy that debt which in essense would give him ownership of SiriusXM. Sorry that my info. is all over the place just making sure I hit every issue that is an issue at this time.
I will say, however, Sleeks that since I started using Slacker, I actually like it better than the Sirius Radio in my car.
I like the selection better (it depends on what you like to listen to), and the audio quality of the Sirius is pretty bad in my opinion.
