With the exception of the Premier Package I think that's a good idea.
Good point above. Followed almost immediately below by proof of said point:
Some listen to albums. Others, only singles.
It is a personal choice, not a philosophical or religious leaning.
TV entertainment is a similar playing field. Some like live sports, some like serials and yet others favor a diet of blockbuster movies.
If you don't like the way someone handles a genre, work with them directly. The court of public opinion doesn't much matter to the only game in town.
When getting ready for my day, I listen to Sonic Tap's channel 862. It's called "Classic Rock workout"...even though I'm not working out.
Give it a try to see if that's what you're looking for.
My only beef with 8-Tracks is that I wish it were more realistic. Add a big "ka-thunk" between every 3 or 4 songs.
Forgotten all about that noise...
I dislike SonicTap music channels for one reason...edited versions of songs. Which makes them unlistenable in my opinion.
Because of this, Slacker Radio (Xbox app) and Pandora (Blu-ray, DVR apps) is what we use in our household.
How about the fading out mid-song before the track change and then fading back in afterwards?
Yeah, that was a terrible feature with 8-Tracks.
It's annoying how they sprinkle channels over the various packages.
I find that out of any Sonic Tap channels, by far the one I use most is Piano, which is only available in Premier. Premier only adds about four or five channels vs. Ultimate, too.
Sometimes that's all it takes to motivate a customer to switch to a higher tier in order to get a channel they want.
They need to change their music channels Sonic stinks and then haven't listened since and never plan on it again and hopefully Directv changes it soon one day but I don't count on it
I like Sirrus/XM better than D* Sonic. DISH has Sirrus/XM which is why D* doesn't. I listen to D* Pandora where I can select what I want to hear. Try it, you may like it.
What's an 8-track? :lol:
Ever since D* added Pandora, I listen to that a lot more than Sonic Tap. Both due to the ability to +/- a song and because I often have both tuners recording something to watch later.
I'd love to see a Vevo app like they have on Roku and Xbox. VEVO launched their new 24/7 HD IPTV channel that is now available through the app. I was watching it through Xbox and the quality is great. Plus they have a huge library of music videos.
These days with MTV, VH1, CMT, etc no longer showing music videos... It would be a great addition to DirecTV to add the VEVO app.
I have far better options for listening to music than using DirecTV. I guess the music channels are nice to have for some, but I have not used them in the past 10 years.
I worked at DirecTV when they had SiriusXM and changed over to SonicTap. The vast majority of customers do not listen to satellite radio on their receivers so it did not make sense for DirecTV to renew the expensive SiriusXM contract so they went to the cheaper SonicTap of which they owe and is only available on DirecTV.
