Everything. However, this is the Canadian price. Regular price is $249 a year plus fee's. They also threw in their new 100 xtra channels package.

Just got my renewal notice in the mail for $305.00, which includes $52.00 in music royalty fees. Get so tired of fighting with Sirius every year. Any recent better deals for all access in car only at renewal time? Will give me an idea of what I should be looking for when I call. Thanks.

check out the XM Select package which is pretty comprehensive unless you want extra add-ons.

Actually called on Monday. Did go with the Select package. Missing is the streaming which I don't use and some sports. Offer was $141.00 out the door or around $11.75 per month. Had some additional credits so it wound up being $100.92 for 12 months. Only went with All Access last year because it was the only way to get Howard. This year he's included in the Select package.

Still don't understand why we have to go through this game every year. Guess some do write the check for the $305.00. Worse than the cable companies.

Hadn't heard about this. I'm not a giant Howard fan, but I'll have to see if he's included in my Select package now.

Here is what I found out. Howard was listed on the Select channel listing off the Sirius site, but when they updated my subscription he was missing. Called CS and after being put on hold for 10 minutes they said that Howard was included in the Select package only if you had a Sirius receiver. He was not included if you had an XM receiver. My BMW apparently has a XM receiver. I went off on them because they wanted another $200.00 to upgrade and nowhere on their website does it say that it only applies to Sirius receivers. They acknowledged that and said they would place a note for their reps for future callers. They finally offered me a $23.00 upgrade to All Access.

There we go. Thanks for the clarification, ya'll. I figured it was something goofy like that.

Just got off the phone with CS. At first ( from my Chevy Malibu bill) and they wanted 323.88 yearly. I asked them to disconnect it, which of course sent me to a "specialist". After some bargaining, I got him down to 155.24 for a one year mostly music plus streaming. Which is the same plan I already have. My second car, A Chrysler Pacifica van, which has a Select plan without steaming, was invoiced at 108.44 for a six month period.. I got him down to 114 for a year. So both cars, one with streaming and one without ( mostly Music on Chevy and Sirius XM Select on Chrysler ) was 269.83 for a year. Or 5.18 a week ….

Just did my renewal yesterday. I had called six months ago and gotten, IIRC, right at a $10 or so a month deal. Said, of course, I want to cancel. Too expensive. Don't listen enough to make it worthwhile (which is actually true, in my car I typically only listen when my wife is riding with me - otherwise I play my own digital files). Offered me a year deal that would be about the same cost, $10 or $11 a month when all the junk fees are added. I said, no, still to expensive. So then she offered me $5.99 a month PLUS the licensing/royalty fee, which makes it come out to $7.27 a month, billed monthly rather than in one chunk, for 12 months. I actually asked if that was the best she could do (was told yes), so I took it. Just over $87 for a year.

Display: Vizio P55-E1l Pre-pro: Marantz 7703; Amps: Emotiva XPA-2 Gen 2, Emotiva XPA-3 Gen 1, H/K AVR 520 (direct in to amps); Sources: Sony UBP-X700; X-box 1 S; Technics 1200 Mk II; Win10 PC for digital; Phono Preamp: Emotiva XPS-1; Speakers - LR: Philharmonic BMR LR, Center: Emotiva Airmotiv C2; Surrounds: Wharfedale Reva-2; Rear Surrounds: Wharfedale Diamond 220; Atmos: TF - Monoprice Alpha 8; TR - BIC VI-38; Subwoofers: dual Rythmik L22s

I just made the call. It's so inane that we need to go through this every year.! I subscribe to the Select package. At the beginning of the call I said the usual stuff; "I'm not in my car as much", "It's too expensive" ...yadda, yadda, yadda.

The first offer was for $140.00 a year (No, thank you. Please cancel my subscription). The second offer was for $127.80 a year (No, thank you. Please cancel my subscription). The third offer was to pay $7.82 monthly, which comes to $93.84 a year (No, thank you. Please cancel my subscription). The final offer was for $6.41 a month, which comes to $76.92 a year. (OK, I'll take it.)

I keep getting an email from them wanting me to buy this radio with a subscription. I’m surprised they’re pushing that radio, with all the other ways we have available nowadays to listen.

I get those emails all the time. I always visualize this giant "Raiders Of The Lost Ark"-style warehouse full of those things.

One thing about how I negotiate with them that I don't know if I've seen mentioned so far is that I start out by saying "I really can't pay more than I already am". I never get the crazy offers, so maybe that way is a good way to start.

New year but same old dance. I called and told them it was too expensive for renewing, and asked them to match last year's price of $120 for 1-year of All Access. They gave me $126, and I figure for $6 more I'll take it. I really am of the opinion that $10 a month is the sweet spot price for this, but I can justify an additional .50 cents. I use the streaming more than I use the radio, and there are a few shows I really enjoy (like Ranger Doug's Cowboy Corral on Willie's Roadhouse), so for me it is worth it. YMMV

My subscription was up June 10th, I called on the 9th, to cancel. I didn't even give a reason, and she said OK, how about the $99 plan you had last year. I said OK, so I'm out the door with XM Select for $119.87 with the Royalty fee. Before I hung up, she told me to remember again to call next year before the auto renewal, so she can give me the discount price. I agree this is absurd that we have to go through this every year, but I guess they must get enough people not do this so that they get a full price for the radio service.

I forgot to mention it in my last "made the call" post, but they did this with me, too! Right at the end, she said "make sure to call back in a year right before your deal ends". I was so surprised, I had to hold back from cracking up. They must be onto us!!!! Ha ha...and now I wonder if we got the same person on the line.
