Renewed my SiriusXM select in the car for 5 months for $25 and my all access for $135 for the year, been getting away with all access in the car for 2 years since I purchased the car, but they finally refreshed the signal to the car after renewing and I lost my all access. I renewed this time calling a different number, I wonder if this is why they refreshed the signal.

Xbox name- D0NGINAT0R (those are zero's in my name)

Just tried this out to reactivate my car radio. I want all access since I listen online a fair bit, and also want to be able to listen to MLB.
Called one sirius number (866-635-5027), and they said 50 for 6 months was only for people who's specifically received a promo code.
Then called a different sirius number (866-665-2846) and got it no problem. He did try to upsell me to 12 months for 120 plus charges/taxes and I said no.
Total price was 56.94/6 months.

Now that I cancelled, I'm starting to get the weekly+ phone calls from Sirius/XM (877-463-5346) that never leave a message.

I just realized that with three vehicles, I could do all access on one car and stream using smart phones on the other two. ....or am I missing something?

not sure- JimP. I do not use any of the other options (computer, smartphone...etc.)

I can remember a time when any subscription covered auto, home and on-line connectivity. Now, SXM charges for everything ala carte'

Sirius / XM Radio has lost many, many customers over the years do to poor business dealings.
My example;
I have paid for (2) different lifetime subscriptions- once under the original XM Radio (2005) and another once Sirius/XM converged in (2010).

I have used this data calculator to figure out how much I use as a general guide, so you just need to figure out how many hours of each thing you do a month to see if streaming will eat all your data.

You will only be able to stream one device at a time though. I tried to use two at a time and no-go.

My 2017 Chevy Bolt came with three free months SXM.... I'm 1.5 months into the free trial now and am already getting (crappy) offers from SXM at $220+ per year.

Should I just let the free trial expire and let them send me better email offers or it it worth chatting w/them before the trial expires?

Thanks Nayan... I suspected as much.

Back in 2012 when my last trial expired on a new vehicle... they actually offered me 6 free months to get me hooked, I didn't take it because the quality was terrible and the station choices were poor.
They seemed to have increased both bitrate and dynamic range (or is the Bolt Bose system that much better?) and they have a few channels I actually like, so I will sub... but not at $20/month!

It depends on what you want to listen to. I had 'downgraded' to Mostly Music, as that was mainly all I listened to. Even at full price, including fees, it was something like $37.55/quarter (about $12.50/month). You can downgrade/upgrade online. You have to call in to cancel, unless you let a free trial die.

And when you cancel or let your trial expire, they will constantly call and snail-mail you. Even more annoying, the phone calls do not leave a message. Some numbers to look out for I have in my phone's address book: 1-855-404-0163, 1-877-463-5346.

^ one of the guys at work recently showed me his "Mostly Music" renewal payment... it was under $120 for the year.
I don't remember the exact amount, but I recall making a mental note that with fees, etc... it came out to something like $9.50/month.

I'll go for < $120/year..... and I just want the music in the car.

Maybe he had a special deal. From what I remembered, there was no discount between monthly, quarterly, or annual. Just check the online list to see if you possibly lose some channels. In my case, the only channel I lost that I had some interest in was "B.B. King's Bluesville." I mainly listened to some of the 'year' channels, or Spectrum (28), which is the closest to my favorite radio station, WXRT 93.1, here in Chicago.

Two cars. One Sirius, one XM. I year all access for both $185.43. And I didn't even have to get rude. Just started by saying I needed to cancel(wasn't paying $131.02 per quarter) and this offer came right out of the gate. One of the more pleasant Sirius reps I ever dealt with as well.

If they would just make this the rate, we could avoid these irritating periodic phone calls. Charge a hundred bucks a year per radio and avoid all the expensive customer service rep time and the many angry customers. But, no, I'm going to have to call back in a year to cancel when they try to charge me over $500 for these packages. So, you have to play their game and be actually willing to cancel. Sigh. I've been a Sirius subscriber for something like 15 years and have never quite understood their approach to existing customers. Surely there can't be very many people who pay the rack rate--it's ridiculous.

Now, if they'll just figure out a way to make the channel numbers match for both the Sirius ad XM sides, I'll be a happy camper.

Decided my time was more valuable than trying to beat them to $99/year, so took it.
Now to put a calendar notice for next year to do the same dance.
I just called, as it is another year, and another time to get my All Access for the same price as last year, and not pay $268. This time the rep didn't give me any hassle, just said they could match last years promotion, and did so. Easy peasy.

I bet there is and that's why they don't simply lower their rates. It's a bit amusing to cancel them for a few weeks and watch all the emails about we want you back.

I do think paid satellite radio's days are numbered as more content becomes available for free via streaming. I think at that point, satellite radio will be free but we'll get even more commercials....if you can imagine that.

Good to see you- JimP

My 1st subscription to XM radio was back in 2005. In 2017, I notice quite a bit of drop-out in every day listening? Not sure why the signal is having so much tech difficulty?
On-line streaming is okay at best, much drop out affects it as well.

Hey back at you.

I noticed a lot more dropouts with my 2016 vehicle than on the 2008 and it seems to vary depending on station. On my car which is a 2008 model, its much better. Don't know if the older one has better sensitivity or maybe is buffering so the dropouts are masked.
