    Dropped Sirius a year ago. My deck in my H1 has bluetooth so I stream Pandora, and iTuneRadioPro for the most part. Just felt the 160 that Sirius was taking from me was a bit excessive since half the time I ride my RoadKing to work. Plus, my work is an 7 mile trek.

    So, has anything changed for the better? Any discounts for returning customers?

    Thanks in advance!

    Audio quality stinks. The playlists are shallow as the kiddie pool. And there's way too many talk channels (I'm a music guy).

    But it's still WAY better than FM, and that's why I still subscribe.

    A Galaxy...
    Since you phrased the question more as a complaint in terms of pricing as to why you left; I'm wondering why you want someone to talk you back into it to begin with.

    Something worth having is justified by your likes/dislikes; not by others sentiments......

    Just trying to get some feedback to see if it's worth re-looking into...and I don't want to be talked into it. I want to hear if it's improved. Stuff like sound quality, program quality, and just general feedback is what I'm interested.

    Thanks for helping out with that!:rolleyes:

    And yeah, 160 a year is a bit high IMO. Competition is tough out there. Howard Stern was cool for a few years but it's the same old Howard.

    Now if I could get it for around 100-120 a month, and things have improved, I'd be interested...

    If you are the least bit resourceful, Sirius/XM can be had for about half the "regular" annual rate in perpetuity.

    As to things being "improved," there is a Beach Boys marathon going on this weekend on the '60s on 6 channel that, among other things, reinforces my decision to remain a Sirius/XM subscriber.

    I have it in my car and I liked it better when it was just XM. But I agree it is better than AM/FM radio stations any day at least where I live!
