I'm on the fence about extending the XM Radio trial subscription and was wondering what others did and why.

can't live without. thought about canceling as I do have days where I listen to some mp3 cds. but I get tired of playing dj. Its nice to just let it run, and terrestrial radio sucks here. Only like 2 stations I kind of like, and they're 75% blah and commercials and 25% music, maybe only 25% of that 25% I actually like....alright enough ranting. lol

but to me its $10 a month well spent.

Also I switch between 4 cars and mine is the only one with XM.
I think.. along those same lines....if the receiver were portable it would be an easier decision.

believe it or not the NY Metro area OTA radio isn't that good either. Now Boston has some good radio.

I love mine, I always tell them I'm going to cancel and they offer some great deal. Right now I'm paying $5/mo

^^^ Sweet price. I listened to it while they did the free week around Memorial Day, and it was ok, but not enough to make me buy it. Then again I live close enough to Memphis that there is no shortage of radio stations.

I let my 3-month trial expire. Didn't listen to it a lot. Now that I have a better head unit with a user friendly iPod interface, the iPod can't be beat. I have the 160GB classic in my glove box and that way I can play whatever music I'm in the mood for. I have a thing with music and sometimes I just have to hear that one song or that certain artist. I've got everything on there from rap to Strauss, from Indy to rock, and from country to 80's disco!
Since about 2 weeks I've been getting calls from XM on my cell phone. Sometimes they call 4x a day! (I know it's them cause i called the number) Through some coincidence, I always miss their calls. Can't wait to get someone on the phone and tell them to leave me alone!
With that in mind, I believe that they will offer a sweet deal if you just ask; they seem desperate to get more subscribers.

I let mine run out in november I think. I enjoyed it, like 3 stations I listened to- but not worth $120 a year for me. I have my mp3 player, so I plug it in and go. But I do miss the stations cause they always played new music and a lot of my new songs on the mp3 were from those stations. I wish we could hack the system -_- lol.

The selection didn't really impress me. The only time I liked it was for when WXDX got a bit fuzzy during hockey games depending on where I was at.

Every so often they'll do a free weekend thing.

I just cut my wires and reprovisioned them to give me an aux input. Between MP3 discs and the aux hack, I'm usually pretty well covered.

i had it free for a 1 yr- it went out like a month ago, they called like 2 days ago, and offered some KIck ASS deal, 5 months on xm for 23.00 bucks that means like 3.00 a month for something that should have been around 19.00 a month. i get the one with everything , go big or go home ya know. and def after those 5 months all u do is cancel it then they bring up some wonderful great deal. but i couldnt live with-out it in the hills of West Virginia bc there are no good stations at all.
