I just got my renewal for 2 radios and it is $275 for a year. I know you can get different deals by calling to cancel, but I may just wait and see where this bankruptcy goes or how it ends up. $275 is more than I want to pay for a year of XM. I'd gladly pay half that. I guess it just costs too much to get satellites up in the air. One satellite is a half million dollar investment. Who knows how much it costs to get it up there. Quality has been going downhill, not the reception, but some channels have commercials now. Despite the range of channel choices it's kind of the Muzak of whatever the category is. In fact I think XM owns Muzak or has an interest in it. The reception is a lot better than FM is all. But then FM is fucking free. We should find out more about the bankruptcy soon. They dragged out the fucking merger for months though. I just think they need a lower price point. You shouldn't have to call to cancel to get the half price deal. It's like all those supermarket cards I have stuffed in my wallet to get the regular price. Otherwise I have to pay tourist prices at my local supermarket. It seems like prices for products and services get more fictional everyday.
