    Got this emailed to me today. I wonder what it's all about.

    [​IMG]

    For some reason the image won't post. Anyhow it says "Something big is coming", then the banner ad says "Find out next week why XM makes more sense then ever."

    What are the 3 ways of listening? Through a receiver, over the internet....what's the 3rd? all I can think of is Sat TV (Directv & Dish).

    Unless this is just pure hype for a last-ditch effort to remind people of the offers that expire on March 11.

    :lol: I don't ever even remember signing up for a newsletter from them and I have never subscribed to Sirius or XM. Their sending out mysterious letters to random people,now that's desperate.

    I haven't been a sub in over 6 months and I get their junk mail and email about every week or so.

    :lol: I am a sub and I DIDN'T get the email! I figure it did have something to do with money and since I'm already a lifetime sub I wouldn't be one of the people to get the email.

    If it's about a 1 week sale, couldn't it be 1.) car receiver 2.) home receiver 3.) portable receiver?

    Could be I guess? When I first went down in this thread the picture hadn't come up so I didn't see it. The picture explains more than ever why I didn't get the email--note it says "Sirius" not "Sirius XM". And I'm an XM lifetime sub. These companies are about as merged as bacon and eggs--sure you can eat them together, but they aren't the same food :rolleyes:

    My email definitely said XM... and I was an XM subscriber.

    More discussion about it here: http://xmfan.com/viewtopic.php?p=1547323

    Thanks :) And sorry I got the wrong idea from the picture that was posted--apparently it is both Sirius and XM that is sending it :blush: But I still didn't get one so I'm sure it is about money and they know I'm an XM lifetime sub.

    Yeah it's probably a campaign to get non-subs to pony up some cash. I'll listen to what they have to say but from the comments I've been seeing about programming changes it's not likely.

    Oh good, commitments and ETFs. Cause that's gonna want to make me subscribe. I don't get it - why the ETFs? Doesn't look like they're providing any equipment discounts here. :rolleyes:

    Thanks for the info, nonetheless.

    Makes me wonder if they didn't re-possess stuff from Circuit City (considering those stores are about to close), and this is a way for them to try and unload the stuff.

    I can't believe how much XM hardware is going for nowadays!!

    I've been an XM sub for almost 4 years now and I got a Ski-Fi2 with CD boombox and car kit for $89 at Sam's Club. I also got a Roady XT for $30. These were good quality Delphi units with really nice features (and they are still working great!)

    Now you get some kind of Express EZ or whatever that looks like it will be lucky to last 6 months with no features for $100!! What gives??
