Here we go again on Feb. 15 2018 the U.S. music royalty fee increase from 13.9 % to 19.1 %.
Wow ... a 37% increase in the fee.
It would be fine with me if they removed all the sorry music channels. They sound like crap. Never play them anymore.
You can subscribe to a "no music" package and avoid the fees ... but if you want one music channel the fee applies to the entire package cost. And the "no music" packages are not a bargain.
What is happening wig with the cost of the music industry? We were going to see a concert in Denver next summer at the Broncos stadium. Tickets were $200! Not going to happen. My stepson just got tickets to see Yanni in San Jose in June, price...$200 each.
I think it's time to cut back on some of my XM channels, go back to music only.
No money for artists in record sales. Music revenue, although improving, is half what it was in the late 90s. Artists are using live performances to make up the money.
I agree though, concert costs are crazy anymore, especially for any decent seats.
It's all relative. I pay up to $500 per Broadway show ticket on a holiday jaunt to NYC every Dec. holiday season. I'm not going to whine about pocket change I use for Sirius all year.
Effective January 15 2019 the U.S. Music Royalty Fee will increase by 2.3 percentage points of the price of most the audio packages which include music channels.
not worth it to me the sound like crap same damm playlists over and over. i don't see how there gonna stay in bussines much longer
subscriptions well over 30 million, sounds great and worth it. Can't do without it in my BMWs and 911s.
I just signed up for a 1 year All Access plan for $120.66
We have three cars with SXM and the renewal just hit for $610 for the year. They also removed the streaming from our account. OUCH! Wife called them to cancel two of the cars and add streaming to the remaining one as that is just too much. Why can't they do like Sattelite TV does and add additional receivers at $10 each?
They reduced our bill to $100 per radio with streaming on all three. With taxes and fees, ~$330 for the year.
Sorry SXM, but $200 a radio is just insane. If we ever end up unable to get discounts, we are gone. We travel a lot so it's nice to not have stations fading in and out, but iHeartRadio is free and has a larger selection than SXM. With cellular internet nearly everywhere now, especially on the highways, I don't see how SXM overcomes the competition streaming that is free.
didn't SXM buy out pandora also???
Yes they did.
SiriusXM buys Pandora for $3.5 billion
SiriusXM to buy Pandora streaming radio service for $3.5 billion
i would never pay for sxm. the playlists are lame to many DJ'S babbling on the music channels. not to mention the stations are compressed to ****
that's what i thought!!!
Just did my usually 6 months and it had a $10 royalty fee
