    How many of you still have/kept satellite radio?

    Just getting a general consensus as to how many of you still have/kept XM radio after your trial expired? My truck came w/a 3 month free trial and I never ended up renewing when it ended (had it for a while in my previous car, also). Part of me can't justify paying monthly for "radio" but the other part genuinely enjoyed it while I had it (probably bc it was free lol). What's everyone else doing?

    Also, anyone know of any special offers/discounts for current non-subscribers (but past subscribers)?

    I pay for it, I always negotiate the deal with them. I usually end up paying 100/yr. If you really want to keep it tell them you cannot afford to pay rack rates . They will work with you.

    As mentioned you can negotiate with them. I did & I said that I was going to cancel and they came back with $100.00 per year. In addition, go with having them mail you the invoice. This costs $2.00 more however you do not want to give them a charge/debit card because they will automatically renew you at full price once your year is up.

    Re: How many of you still have/kept satellite radio?

    Can't stand Sirius/XM. I had it on my boat many years ago. I instantly canceled it when I started hearing commercials. I refuse to pay money to hear advertising. I canceled the service and of course they tried like hell to keep me. Then about a year later I see a charge on my credit card from them for over $200!! This was the same credit card they had on file but the exp date had expired shortly after I canceled so I got a new card and new exp date.. These slime bags as Sirius actually charged my credit card and tried random exp dates until they hit the right one.

    Total scammers! Of course I called them right up irate. They actually tried to convince me to keep the service instead of trying to explain how (and why) they charged me for service a year after I canceled. It actually took me 15 minutes of yelling at them to cancel and refund my money to convince them beyond a reasonable doubt that I did not want the service.

    Sorry those people are criminals. No way was charging my card for 2 years of service a year after I canceled a mistake. Not with the changed exp date. I bet they have a team of people sitting at computers charging peoples cards like this. The figure half will get mad and instantly cancel and the other half they may be able to convince to keep the service after offering all kinds of deals.

    Criminals!

    I pay $4 a month for Pandora. No commercials ever! I wish I could uninstall the XM feature from my stereo system in the truck. I hate looking at it and I hate hearing the 24-7 sales pitch when I hit the XM by mistake.

    My wife bought her Escalade over two years ago (used), it had xm radio when she bought it and to this day she has paid nothing, so I think
    for that price she will keep it. Not sure why that happened but not complaining.

    Re: How many of you still have/kept satellite radio?

    I used my 90 day trial and when it expired I explained to them that I don't drive the truck daily and really couldn't justify it. They offered me the $100 a year deal and I took it. I would much rather listen to XM than commercial after commercial and those silly DJ's that laugh at themselves hour on hour. John Boy and Billy are local here in the Charlotte listening area and when they first came on in the late 70's I enjoyed listening to them. Now, 34 years later they still use a lot of the same material and I find them boring and extremely silly. I'll keep my XM for now.

    Re: How many of you still have/kept satellite radio?

    I've had my escalade close to 4 years now, and have always had XM. I take long trips from time to time in the esky, and being able to drive 6 hours without having to change stations to listen to radio is nice. Also a bunch of channels will have newer songs earlier, and also play some dance/electronic music from Europe before that artist gets big in the states...

    Total dirt bags, my contract expired and the card I paid for it with expired. They somehow got my new CC number and charged some insane high rate for one year of service without my authorization. Total crap bags. More, I buy a Minivan for the wife and the dealership says "you want Disney for the kids?" Heck yeah! I paid for a few years in advance with a great deal. Guess what the morons include with Disney? Porn channels! I'm mean filthy porn, not just some run of the mill HBO porn, pure filth.

    I have xm in all my cars/trucks that offer it, where we live in upstate NY it's xm or Ipod, not too many stations broadcast to the wildlife living in the woods

    Re: How many of you still have/kept satellite radio?

    I have it and love it. I haven' thad to pay for it though!! lol. I had an 07 Tahoe and previous owner never terminated the service with my Tahoe and had it free for 5 years until last year and I had to pay for it. Then I sold it and got the Escalade and same thing user still hasn't turned it off. But knowing where this Escalade came from I doubt this guy will know and care as he has tons of money.
