Been a subscriber since '05, my $77 a year subscription ends 3/9.
I called today with hopes of getting the same deal with internet thrown in-no dice.
Was asked why i wanted to cancel and said poor sound quality and I do more of my listening via pandora on my iphone. In an idian accent, she asked all the questions that assume I am idiot, regarding sound quality-
1) Are you using FM for connection?
A= No, it is directly connected
2) Have you checked the attenna? Is it outside the car?
A= Yes (I could have said that where the antenna is has nothing to do with how their compression squashes the sound quality, but I didn't)
Was told that internett was a totally different thing(whatever that means).
I was offered $77+$11 royalty= $88 for one year and an additional $2.95 per month for my iphone. I told her to not renew it. I was then offered three months free on the portable. Again, said to cancel it. No counter offer there.
I just downloaded the app for xm/sirius and it isn't bad, especially when run through the compressed music enhancer on my car stereo. But, I have grown to love slacker/pandora and can live without it. My wife still uses the inno and I would like to renew for her, but if that can't give us a better deal, she'd be happy going back to radio and sticking with podcasts (she loves the Itouch I got her). XM/sirius needs to make things more compelling for us to resign.Is there a chance if I were to call again in a few days, they'd throw in the iphone streaming?
