What u need to do is wait for it to expire. They will call you to renew it and you can tell them your not interested for that price. They will give it to you cheaper.

I like channel 10 and what ever the Nashville channel is

Default Re: Satellite Radio, is it worth it?

i listen to, pretty much my presets:
1) Faction 41: Jason Ellis, Tony Hawk, Bam Margera
2) Octane 37
3) Alt Nation 36
4) Sirius XM Hits 1
5) Liquid Metal 40
6)Lithium 34
7) 90;s on 9
8) BPM 51
9) The Highway 51

And i think its totally worth it because our radio stations in our rural area suck, all 80s crap music

I have downloaded about 300 songs to my mp3 player, which I have also backed up on a couple of computers. I don't think I'm going to renew my subscription in 6 months. I pretty much have everything I like. Not for $12.99 a month anyways.

I would love to hear some of the merits of this, and cons. We all know I travel, the truck is almost at 103k, and I bought it with 30k on it, a little under 3 years ago. I have my ipod though, and I always buy new cds when I can. I listen mostly to a podcast from the radio station I love back home.

the cons are really only the cost, the pros on the other hand is that you hear music on there like 3 months before you hear it on any local station, you have jason ellis, which is totally worth it alone, and you can literally listen to everything from playboy radio to hits 20

That pretty much is everything I hear. Maybe I'll bite the bullet and just get the service for awhile
