Incredible deal! You can get a year for around $90ish, just call to cancel and tell them you want the deal.

vote-for2vote-against

Radio came installed in my new car. I balked at the continuing price after the free 90 days, and was told "ok so you want to cancel?" Nope, I took the package without sports, can't remember the exact cost but over $100. This is a great deal for the radio alone, but it was my experience that the subscription is not subject to negotiation. Perhaps I should try again.

I am a radio dj and love listen to Sirius. Had Sirius in my last car...and XM in my current one. Getting this for my girlfriend's car. She loves the Foxxhole Station and the kids listen to Disney. This is a great deal if you just want a regular radio.

From the TOS, it sounds like you are going to be charged for 3 months anyways.

Link: http://shop.sirius.com/ctlimg/sirius/html/offerDetails_v5.html

This is what I'm referring to: "Requires a 3-month non-refundable minimum service commitment. If you wish to cancel, you must call SIRIUS during your 30-day free trial (1-888-539-7474), or to cancel any time. SIRIUS will charge your subscription, fees and taxes to the card you provide upon purchase of radio. Limit two radios per household with this offer."

vote-for2vote-against

Sweet. I took advantage of the 2 per household and got one for my car and one for my husband's. Total shipping was $10.51 for two.

Also, the way I read it, the 3-month subscription is nonrefundsble, ONCE THEY CHARGE IT. If you cancel within the 30 days, no charge. I plan on changing both our subscriptions over to the a-la-carte plan ASAP.

vote-for1vote-against

How much is the monthly fee?

Can anybody break down the cost?

vote-for1vote-against

@hackman2007: I think you're reading it wrong. I understand it as after the 30 days, you will be billed for the three months to the card you provided upon purchase of the radio. Not that you will be billed for 3 months upon purchase. It says above the part u quoted that you can enjoy it for a full 30 days before payment occurs on your subscription.

Not saying that I'm not interested (I am), but a quick google of "SIRIUS SV6 Radio" shows that they have been offering this free radio in different ways for quite awhile now.

vote-for3vote-against

I used to be a telemarketer for Sirius

monthly standard price is 12.95/mo. and 8.99/mo for every additional radio you have

But if you had a subscription and cancelled or had a vehicle with an expired subscription, you'd get a call form me with a bunch of renewal promos. Pretty much the longer you tell the telemarketer you don't want to renew the more callbacks you'll receive with even more irresistible deals. But don't overdo it, I think they stop calling people back after 3 or 4 denials.

The most common renewal offer customers are initially offered is 12.95 for the first 3 months, then back to 12.95/mo. after those 3 mos.

The best offers I've seen are probably 19.99/5 Mos. and the 12 Months for $60

Anyone know how hard this is to install in a car? I have XM radio that came with my new car, but the older car doesn't have it, and I wouldn't mind adding XM radio to the older car if it isn't too difficult to install. Any experience out there?

vote-for1vote-against

I used to love my XM, expecially the station FRED. Very well programmed station. But after the merger FRED went away and the whole thing just felt like regular radio, not a cool underground radio station. I ended up canceling after a free extra month after I called to cancel the first time. I bought a Slacker portable that's still working fine to replace it. And now it's available on smartphones too, so I haven't really missed it.

vote-for1vote-against

Stupid question: If I have an XM built in to my car, can I now listen to Howard Stern on it? I lost track of everything after the merger news.

vote-for1vote-against

Very easy to install XM Radio if you have an input for MP3 players built into your radio. Just plug into that slot then attach magnet antenna to roof of car and plug into lighter socket.

@deathopie: I LOVED Fred. I used to tease my husband that Fred was the only other man I truly loved. But then, Fred left me. So sad! The replacement First Wave just isn't the same.

Ahhh, Fred. Sigh.

I have both XM and Sirius, love them, Yes you can get Howard with XM just have to call and add the Sirius package, like 12 bucks for three months. I'm a big Howard fan, did you know if you have Sirius you can stream it on your computer for a couple bucks a month?
One thing that does piss me off is XM is about 60 bucks more than Sirius. ($240 vs $180)

vote-for1vote-against

Every time I called Sirius customer service I was put on hold at least 15 min often longer. Got hung up one once. when I got my phone a Pandora and sports radio apps did everything Sirius did for free. I called to cancel was on hold 25 min (timed it) before speaking to an agent after they transferred me to a supervisor who trIed to convince me to stay offered 6 month for $20 but I didn't use it anymore. I still got calls trying to get me to go back every month 3 or 5 times . until even after being told we were not ever going to be interested. finally I got one to connect me to a supervisor remove us from the data list. now we only get junk mail. Satellite radio was a great idea once but it has run its course and become obsolete to

From the Offer Details: " On day 37 after your order, your card will be charged (1) a one-time activation fee of $15, and (2) a recurring subscription fee of $38.85 plus other fees and taxes every 3 months"

Thats only 12.95 whereas the monthly fee they say is $14.93, can someone shed some light is that really ontop of the monthly fee or are they billing for 3 months at a time?

vote-for1vote-against

is there a similar deal for XM... i want mlb broadcasts and as far as i can see, they're not included if you subscribe to the sirius side

vote-for1vote-against

I got a Sirius radio at Goodwill that already has a subscription but it doesn't have much that I like. They have the same music channles as XM but you can get better music free on the internet and they don't have any of the talk shows that I like so I would never subscribe.

vote-for1vote-against

I currently have an XM account. Are Sirius and XM still separate entities when it comes to subscriptions/billing, or can I combine accounts for a discount?

vote-for1vote-against

If you call XM and tell them you want a promo deal (or just say you can't afford the service anymore and want to cancel) you can get 5 months for $19.99. Each time I have done this, the operator tells me to call in before the 5 month promo expires and they will continue the promo for 5 more months at $19.99...

I have not paid full price for XM for at least 2 years...

I signed up for a free 30 day trial online this past month (should be up soon) just for listening online. Can I continue my 6.99/mo subscription and use it on this? Or will I need to pay extra to use this device, plus internet/iPhone listening?

vote-for1vote-against

@candaceo: I actually started a facebook group to bring Fred back, lol. Didn't work. On Slacker former XM subscribers tried to duplicate FRED. I ended up just creating my own station. I pay the $4/mn subscription to get unlimited skips and no ads, plus use of the cached station for my ipod touch.

vote-for1vote-against

@fredrinaldi: that extra charge for listening on the internet is just one more (mod edit: profanity) thing that happened after the merger. stay away from sirius/Xm, i stick to pandora or slacker.

vote-for1vote-against

Sirius has always been good to me. Not an O&A kind of guy, so Howard works best for me. Don't plan to spend the extra to get the best of XM package. Not worth the extra. CS budges for any threat though. lol.

@zapp brannigan:

Here's what I think they're saying:

You get the radio and first month free (They're just letting you know that that first month could have cost you $14.93 but they gave it to you for free). Once your trial is up, you will be put on a 3-month subscription (not on top of the $14.93 a month). Most companies will charge slightly less per month if you subscribe for multiple months at a time. You should only get a charge every 3 months at the $38.85 price.

That being said. Sirius has various subscription plans that you can change to. Just make sure you call and let them know. :) hope that helps.

vote-for1vote-against

@yabebe: (or anyone else who knows...)

If you cancel your subscription while still on the free trial, do you still get to keep the radio?

vote-for1vote-against

XM and Sirius are the same beast. Stern is not enough for me to pay $10 a month when Pandora and I heart radio are free. 10 years ago this would be awesome but there are better options.

vote-for1vote-against

To hear the XM on Sirius in addition to the $12 mn for Sirius you will need to pay$3 for the 'Best of XM' package. there is also a $2 to listen to internet radio over Wi-fi. it adds up quickly

vote-for2vote-against

Here is a tip, IF you do this, have them BILL YOU.

Once they have your credit card number, it will be HELL to cancel.

Voice of experience speaking here.

IMHO, I dropped XM/Sirius after 8 years, went to Pandora for free and enjoy it more.

I just called to see about these fees since the "Offer Details" were written with some very nice legal double-speak. After a brief hold and choosing the "English" option I was transfered to someone I am certain did not have a clear grasp of the language, and was told repeatedly that in oder to receive the free radio and service offered only to "new subscribers" I had to be an existing subscriber. After making sure I was clear when I heard this from her by asking her a few more times, I asked for a supervisor and was promptly placed on hold. While sitting on hold for roughly 10 minutes I did some ebay searching and found a nice car charger/mounting station/fm transmitter for my iPhone for little more than 6 bucks more than the shipping on this radio. Save your money, and your headache. Invest your time in searching for a better method than this outdated over priced service.

vote-for1vote-against

to the person that wanted to know if it was hard to hook up: No its not hard, a little pain in the a**. That being said I had Sirius as soon as it came out, bought it for my kids, fiance, yada yada yada. It was the best thing since sliced bread for a couple years. Then I could tell you what song was coming on after the one that was on. etc. It turned out to be monotinous!! Not having the commercials was nice, but listening to the same songs over and over everyday was nuts. This happened on several stations. I wasn't listening to bee bop music. I DEF HIGHLY SUGGEST NOT GIVING THEM YOUR CC #, for some reason it takes months for them to stop using it. I'm not up on times now, I'm disabled now and listen to cd's all day. So I don't even know what Pandora or some of the other stuff mentioned is now. Geez I feel like I live under a rock.

If you have XM you can add the best of Sirius to the account.

Also, if you buy this radio, you can get an app for an iPhone or Blackberry to stream all the channels to your smartphone live!!

Good stuff

@skione: UGH! How can you have access to Howard Stern and STILL prefer OandA over him.

They are bit stealing, no talent, hacks. Please spend the extra bit of cash to get Stern programming on your radio, you won't regret it.
