I get a free year of Sirius-XM with my new vehicle. I had this from 2008-09.
Not much has really changed. I still see that the company is called "Sirius-XM" but you don't get all the XM channels. No baseball, no hockey for instance. The music channels seem to be really good, I like the decades system like I did before and the 40's station and also Escape continue to offer music I won't hear anywhere else, so that's positive. Sound quality is good too on all the channels. The Rawdog and Stern channels and the no holds barred political stations are no good to me. Not with the kids in the car, but the sports anytime I want it is cool, and I like the CBC channel as well. I'd still like to see the satellite channel get some over the air stations like WCBS or something to listen to for news. Of course, I can use my cell phone and plug it into my radio and do that, I'm just thinking of other customers that don't do that. I think I'll get NFL with my Sirius-XM and the NBA is there, but like I said, no MLB or NHL. I just don't get it, if its a merger then why am I not seeing the same service on both systems......three years later?!
Anyway, the price is right. I doubt I'll renew in 2012, but I'll enjoy it for the next 12 months for free.
