Is there no good XM deal if you are already a D* subscriber???

Kinda sucks to pay all the extra money since you already get it on your D* plan.

1. There are a lot of XM/Sirius stations that DirecTV doesn't carry.
2. It's tough to take down the 5 LNB dish and lash it to my car. :lol:

I've heard rumourations (that's an old word I just made up) that with Liberty's new stake in Sirius XM, they may be looking into some sort of a bundling discount. Which would be okay with me.

Let's start with discounts for those who are both XM and Sirius subs and then we can move on to D*.

So they were charging $12.99 a month to get both services? That doesn't make sense. XM alone is $12.99 a month unless you're on a prepaid plan.

$19.99 a month is better than $26 a month, sounds like a discount to me. :confused:

I've never been impressed with the lack of "package deals" offered by XM or Sirius.

If you just want the XM Stuff call 1-800-321-7117 tell the operator you want the special year price of $77.00 give the the special promotional code(ZWINBACK). I got two radios for that price. The only bad thing is you can't add the best of Sirius with that, but thats a great price only 6.42 a month
Sirius Sportster 5 with the Best of XM for Life and a Audiovox Express RC and express EZ also Factory Honda and Accra XM Plus best of Sirius

They wouldn't give me that because it is from the XM marketing dept. to get back those who cancelled service, therefor the "Z Win Back code."

Thats a cool radio except for the $20 a month price. SiriusXM still act like two seperate companies. They need to really combined their billing and services and then they will save people money. By the way I locked out all the country channels on my radio. ;) I enjoy Howard and all his hijinks.

That's interesting. I renewed my 2 home units and the one that came with my car for 2 years before the price increase in March.

With the new rates and this "music licensing fee" gouge I wonder what will be the offering in 2 years? One thing is for sure-I am NOT going to keep all 3 radios at the "new" price!!! Maybe the answer is to cancel EVERYTHING and wait for the phone call or mailed offer to come back....
