30 minute wait.. I finally got through.. I was connected with the most apathetic customer service rep.
I tried explaining to her that my XM Select does not include these channels:
KIIS Los Angeles
She told me that XM doesnt get them and that I need to talk to Sirious. So after waiting on hold for 30 more minutes with Sirious, Sirious is telling me that I have an XM radio (even though it says "Sirious XM" on it) and that they can't do anything for me.
Any advice?????? I want these 4 channels.
You say you have to tune to channel ZERO to get the advertising blab? I'll bet you actually have a Sirius radio!!
But you said you USED to get those channels. To my knowledge, they are ONLY available on XM because that is who Clear Channel has a contract with-not Sirius even though they are merged.
It might have something to do with your radio. All of my radios are "ancient" including the one in my 2006 GM car. I have ALWAYS received the "clear channel" stations which you like. These channels are programmed by Clear Channel (or the superstations they own) and contain commercials. They also have a much higher bandwidth and sound a lot better then the XM channels per their contract.
I honestly don't know what else to suggest (rare for me). It's apparent that the CSR's at SiriusXM are only interested in signing up new customers and collecting commissions. One tip however. SiriusXM has a policy that you can CANCEL ANYTIME and receive a refund if you aren't happy. Perhaps you should try this since you (obviously) aren't happy.
Sorry I couldn't suggest anything else.
