I am betting your lifetime contract might be refunded.
I have heard estimates that the new company would charge as much as $20 a month.
More like $25 most likely...
I personally don't like the idea of them making one company out of this because they will be able to set the price and make people pay it to get what they want. They could also make it like cable and have separate tiers of service...something else I really don't want. All I want to do is keep my lifetime sub and listen to whatever is on Sirius right now. If they let me hear XM stuff too, fine. I just don't feel like paying more for something they decided to do because they didn't want to hack it on their own.
I have about 3 years to go to get to the break even point in what I paid at once vs. what I would pay per month...if they end up refunding my lifetime subscription, I might just say forget it and not re-sign up. There are plenty of ways I can hear music on the internet and through MP3's.
Anyway, on topic...they'd probably put the MLB stuff on a sports package with all the other sports and charge you $5 a month for it...that would be a pain.
