For many, yes, but not all. I don't have it on the principle that I don't want low bitrate sounds, and the traffic info often is inaccurate. So at a penny a month it's overpriced for me.

They lost me with all the extra fees they tack on as well as not allowing multiple radios on the same account at a reasonable cost. The online stream is way over priced.

The preview lit up on my receiver which has XM/Sirius built in.  I don't subscribe since on a big system, the low bitrate is really noticeable and painful to listen too.

Quite so. I found that for a while, the quality was all right on the Symphonic channel- which ever one is on Preview.... But then it reverted to a low nitrate.

I don't listen for the music anyway. The bitrate is low and can sound out of phase on some channels. I have 1700 songs on my phone for music. I subscribe for the sports, and since I just got the six months for 30 bucks offer, it's worth it to me.

They're not so generous with the promo pricing, since they merged.  I was able to get the service for an average of $79.00 a year.  Now, if I negotiate hard, still over $100.00.  They really didn't care if they kept my business or not.  They said that most people just pay whatever they charged, no questions asked and less then 25% even negotiate price.  Too me, the service isn't worth what they're asking.  since amalgamation, their service has become stagnant.

call em and haggle with em. I have never paid full price for a sub they always offer me a year for 84 bucks or 5 months for 25.00!! I have never paid the radio swap fee either :righton: . I tell em there out of there minds if they think i'm paying 15 bucks for them to push a few buttons :rolling: as well there completely crazy if they think i'm paying almost 200 bucks a year to hear the same dam songs over and over :eek2:  :rotfl:  then I threaten to cancel and I tell em i'll just load up my mp3 player and listen to the same **** over and over but for free and with better sound quality than theres :sure:
