    Here is a question: I currently have the $4.99/month billed monthly promo, which with taxes/fees/royalties comes out to $6.98/month charged. This is for streaming only. So, under the new SiriusXM packages, will they give me the "new" Select plan that includes a hardware XM radio plus the free streaming for the same $4.99/mo promo rate? Or would that only give me a choice of radio OR streaming, as they did before? Because I might be willing to call in and change my plan if I can get 1 radio plus streaming for the same price I pay now for streaming only. But there's no sense in trying if they won't do it.

    Sad thing is that it’s not worth more than the $6.98

    I don’t believe people actually pay $20 for this garbage.

    I listen to my Sirius the most, right now, during the year, while football season is here ... now if I could buy it for 4 month out of the year, that would be great, but thats not happening.

    I wish I could get Stern for that price alone. The fact that they won't give me a 12 month offer with Stern is a no deal.

    Update: I called in, and it took several threats to cancel, but I ended up getting XM Select in my car and on streaming and I'm still paying $6.98/month billed monthly, total cost charged to my card.
    I do think $7/mo is all it's worth, and it's only worth that much because they're throwing in the streaming. Amazon offers me (because I have prime) their full music catalog for $7.99/mo and I was considering cancelling SXM in favor of that.

    If they kept the sound quality and music selection that XM Radio had, it would still be worth closer to $10/mo in my view.

    Well, if you think it’s worth it, it’s worth it.

    I prefer to not deal with the hassle of canceling and renewing. Been that route. And quite frankly, we never used them much. Their traffic is worthless. We use Pandora instead.

    I called earlier today to get a new deal for the all access package[my latest one expires on the 25th]The old one was for $135.84 the new one is for $173.18 for the next year including fees and taxes.[it's still better than paying full price]
