Made my semi-annaul call. Got the exact same thing I had last time, which is nice, took about 10 minutes, mostly which is them reading terms/script.
One radio - 6 months All Access (for the online feature, and NFL games, though I don't need that in summer) for $50.
Second radio - 5 months Select for $25. Push back that I want both radios six months for the "same cycle" and they gave me the Select for 6 months for $25.
$75 plus about $10 in royalty fee / tax and good to go for another 6 months.
$100 per car per year is about the limit I will spend for XM, but I pay a little extra to have the phone access and NFL. Love having MLB/NFL/NHL on my phone and in my cars.
So, let's see.... With that logic, you are willing to spend an extra $50 a year just to keep yourself from making one telephone call. You still have to call after a year.
I called to cancel my trial subscription today. I was pleasantly surprised that there was no resistance, pushback, or demand for explanation as to why I did not want to keep the service after the trial period. The rep just thanked me for trying the service, informed me that the service would end on 5/4 and we ended the call.
I just can't stand the sound quality. It's terrible! Star Talk is the only thing I'll miss. But even that I can get off my phone.
