I just received my third phone call from the folks at XM Radio. They were offering some expensive renewal package. I know that others, from another Forum, are getting XM for $77 a year. I told them to forget it unless I could get it for the same and I did.

Also, never give them a credit card number, ask them to bill you. They will automatically renew you at a higher rate if they have your credit card information. I know of some who are on their third year at this rate.

I know that many of us will be up for renewal as our trial period is running out, so heed this information and save a few bucks. :)

Wow - thank you very much PizzaMan. So the third phone call you laid it on the line and offered what you would be willing to pay. I was going to say no to the renewal; but, at that price the answer will be yes.

I have had Sirius (1 year subscriptions) for 3 years now and also I have the 3 month trial of XM until June - my question - will I be able to transfer my Sirius over to XM as I do not want to carry both radios, nor pay for both.....

I haven't heard anything concrete concerning the details of the merger. Perhaps someone else is more in tuned with it. This is my first experience with XM.

Thanks for the tip. I told a coworker who got a CTS a little while ago about this. His trial was almost up so he called XM and said he heard that there was a promotion for $77 a year and to send him the bill and it all worked out just fine for him.

I bought a package that my dealer told me about, he hooked me up with a special package for first time buyers that cost me 68.00 for an additional 1 year subscription,so I have 15 months total,and he said after a year to go see him again and he could probably do it again.I already had a subscription with XM for a portable radio I installed in my HHR and at home a Roady XT,I like to listen to the Bruins and Red Sox.I don`t know if this deal is in Canada only,but talk to your dealer about it,they have a special code the give XM for this deal

There are plenty of deals around, I'm sure. The $77 deal was the one I was sure about at the time. I wish my dealer had mentioned the extended time offer you mention. Then, I wouldn't have had to play the game. Maybe it is a Canadian only promotion.

$77/year for XM is a really good price!

Think Sirius is $100...

In comparison $6.42 a month ($77/12) is not bad considering the eariler monthly rates. However you can still get dozens of free AM/FM stations without much of a hassle. I've never owned a car with Sat radio yet. I'll try out the free subscription when my M'bu comes in. Is the $77/yr a 1 or 2 yr contract deal?

One of my friends has recently gone past his free months with XM in a new toyota. He is considering dropping it because some stations are begining to add in short commercials. Unfortunately they've already got his credit card info. This sounds like cable TV all over again.

The 3 month trial is available in Canada,and like I said before ask your salesman to hook you up for the 1 year subscription at 68.00,he has a code he gives XM and your all set.

Hello, I have some details concerning the XM & Sirius merger. First of all, I am a Sirius shareholder and I follow up on the merger news everyday. You will not lose XM broadcasting, however, if the merger is approved by the FCC, you will not be able to get all of Sirius on your XM radio. After the merger, they are expecting about a year for the new receivers to come out to be able to accept both signals. However, as far as I understand, you will be able to get specific Sirius channels on XM, such as Howard Stern etc. The merger has been approved by the Department of Justice, and is waiting for approval from the FCC, which is expected any day now. The FCC has never ruled against a DOJ approval over a merger, so let's keep our fingers crossed.

Just called my dealer about the XM radio package. Of course the salesman that i delt with wasn't in so I left him a message. I will let you know the outcome. Hopefully they offer the same package in the USA.
