I got Sirius for free with the pInk Jeep and LOVE IT... The music is 100000 times better. Unfortuantely there is no baseball..Until now!


You see this is why i like XM, there was no crappy jam band music. ;-) ;-7

I saw acs's thread in Leftovers earlier and it made my day. The only drawback of Sirius was no MLB. Getting it would be awesome. ;-D

Sirius doesn't claim that they are 100% commercial free...they claim their music stations are 100% commercial free...which they are. XM has a few stations on their service (I think those stations are owned by ClearChannel) that have commercials on them.

Anyway, I have to imagine that a merger will make the music services the base subscription with the Entertainment and Sports being add-ons that will cost extra. :-/ If people have to pay more money for Howard, I think there will be a few people jumping ship. I used to listen to Howard in the mornings, but recently I've been listening to Covino & Rich on Maxim Radio...I think they are pretty funny and more in-tune to my age group.

I don't listen to much NFL on the radio unless I happen to be out and about...but most of the time I am home watching the games. Same goes for MLB...I will probably keep my MLB.tv for this year because of working 2nd shift. So if they do make it so I have to pay to get the sports, I'd probably decline it. I'd still rather have my lifetime subscription be valid... :-o

Just to make note of it...

Sirius put out this Q&A for subscribers about the merger. It says lifetime subscriptions will be honored (;-D), and supposedly the current radios will be able to get "enhanced programming," whatever that means. :-?

It'd be nice if that meant they would put things like MLB on the Sirius band when the games are on. B-)
