I got a notice in the mail from XM that they were turning it back on beginning May 22 for two (2) weeks (June 6th?).

XM Radio dropped

I got tired of trying to figure out how to start a new thread on this website, so I just decided to post on a XM topic search and let it go at that (the web masters must want to discourage new topic posting).

Per previous postings about how XM would just renew a subscription when they had access to a credit card, I decided I had better call XM. I had decided that if the same intro-rate could be continued upon renewal, (which some on this blog claimed was possible), then I would continue the service.

The phone call did not go well with the representative wanting to do all the talking and not listen to my concerns about renewal. In a necessary return call, I was assured my credit card would be erased and I could decide when a mailed bill arrived and send my check for the lower rate being continued. The promised email summary of our agreement never came, but an offer by XM's quality/survey company did come in an email. I did the survey and at the end of the survey an offer was made for an XM representative to contact me. I received that follow-on call.

The net of the follow-up contact with the XM Care Group was that the offer to continue the intro-rate that they promised would never have happen at the call center level. The Care Group did make that offer, but it was $10 more than I had paid my first year. After the second year, then I would have to pay some $190 a year. This rate is JUST TOO MUCH .... for a specialty car that gets driven sparingly. Also, with the IPod capability and a six CD player radio, it isn't justifiable to even continue XM.

In spite fo XM's attempt to retain a customer, we dropped their service considering the use capability of the SKY. Had XM not drawn so much attention to the fact they are so difficult to work with, we might have sailed through and continued as a customer. Under the circumstances, we didn't feel comfortable doing business with them. We won't go back.

If it was free I would still not listen to it. I listen to my music MP3's with the 6 disk player I can cross the country on one set of cd's. Well I just go half way to either Fl or CA.

I guess if you like sports or news that XM would be of interest. But if you want to listen to good music, in my opinion, it flops big time. It has a lot of channels, but almost none suit my taste. And the ones that kind of do, have a playlist that is so short that you get tired of listening to the same stuff over and over again. And even that sucks because it gets mixed with religious crap.

Now that wasn't necessary, was it?





How typical of the amoral socialist progs on the Left.
Proclaim "tolerance" of everything under the sun
except Judeo Christian beliefs.




No wonder the dim-controlled feral schools no longer teach real history.

Just telling the truth about how I feel. We need more honesty in the world. I wasn't discriminating about any denomination. And by the way, how you described me is incorrect. The subject was music not religious intolerance. I just prefer other music. Seems to me that no matter how hard you try, you can't force me to change my mind to have different musical tastes. You loose!!!

I personally enjoy my XM. I normally don't listen to FM or AM radio because it doesn't have the music I like. I've found 6 or 8 XM channels that I enjoy so it's on all the time I'm in the car. We each have our preference and I prefer XM without the commercials.
