    Was there a time when you could get an XM radio account for free or discounted if you had Direct?

    Someone I use to work with last year said she was going to get her husband XM and it wasn't going to cost anything cause they had it with Direct.

    I don't think so. The do have "specials" on the DTV website with their partners (like XM) periodically in the "value circle."

    Edit: typo

    No.

    There was a 50% off hardware promotion for the $225 Delphi MyFi hand-held receiver for DirecTV subscribers. Sirius doesn't offer any discounts to Dish Network subscribers, so there probably isn't much motivation.

    I got a Roady2 for $19 thru DirecTV. Cheap enough to make me jump on the XM Band Wagon. I think the normal activation fee was dropped as well.

    If you sign up for Opie and Anthonys email list on their website you get specials now and then. Right now you can get an XM receiver AND boombox for $99 if you agree to a 3 month commitment. No discounts on service but thats a nice deal considering the same thing thru Sirius is $230.

    The Sirius unit that you're quoting is more like the Sky Fi 2 than the XM XPress that they're pushing and it currently has a $50 rebate on it. The comparable Sportster Boombox bundle is closer to $130. The Sporster Replay has just under 50% more record time than the Sky Fi 2 (44 minutes versus 30).

    When did recording radio receivers become the big thing?
