Discussion in 'The Howard Stern Show' started by GaryPuppet, Feb 26, 2012.
How is that a revolution?
And how can Sirius justify raising subscription rates?
radio is a habitual medium
Well Stern is suing them so ...... they gotta pay those lawyers dont they?
It couldn't be because Sirius / XM has a couple hundred channels to offer the subscriber, could it?
Look, the company adds and deletes programming constantly and while it might have been true at one time, I doubt there are many people subscribing to sat. radio just for Howard at this point...
And when I tried to tune in this year, it was worse than it even was last year when I couldn't make it through a show which was worse than the year before when I stopped listening all the time.
Howard spent 8 hours on Sirius/XM last week "entertaining" paying subscribers and will spend more time in the air traveling to his AGT auditions in the Bay Area.
at this point I don't even care anymore, I just listen to NFL and O&A when jeward isn't live.....he could take a month off for all I care.....
i subscribed for howard but as far as i'm concerned i couldn't care less if he never did another show. i listen to other shows because the hosts actually enjoy being there and are enthusiastic about what they do. i can't remember the last time i listened to an entire show....i usually bail after the first 15 min then return for the news (which howard has destroyed with the constant commercials).
anyone is better than the HSS....alex bennett, o&a, stephanie miller...even glen beck. sirius shouldn't have re-signed howard.....the show is now a promo for AGT.
If people subscribe to Sirius for Howard, then that's not very bright.
If people subscribe to Sirius because they find value in the product then that's great.
But strictly for Howard 100/101? That's crazy...
Hank, son of etc...
Agreed, King....A few years ago, I would eagerly anticipate the next show and constantly rotate between Howard 100-101. But now I could give a shit less. If I miss a show, fuck it. I like radio, so I keep Sirius and there is plenty of shit to listen to, I haven't made the leap to add XM to my account but it sounds like it might be worth a few extra bones...
I have written in to the show a few times... every time I make sure to tell them that I download the show. (I fucking quit my 15 year streak 2 weeks ago when Howie broke the camel's back with the AGT announcement. I liked Jackie/Billy. I liked Friday. I liked Howard when he liked us. Now he can go polish up his head and cram it up any stupid celeb's ass that he pleases. I haven't watched live TV in 10 years anyway...but when I'm visiting my mom she watches AGT.. My MOM. The old lady in Florida will be watching my old friend the millionaire phoney from NYC... and I've discovered podcasts which make THSS sound like a Jewish grandmother arguing with a rich black lady in a fish tank.... wait...
Fast forward to next sunday..... 2 more shows + 7 more days passed
20 shows in 63 days
He works 31.7% of the time
or on average
2.22 days per week
VIVA THE REVOLUCION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I came to Sirius for Howard but am staying for America's Got Talent!
Ruffy made me lollllzzzzz
Cut mine off after the first of the year price hike, now I listen for free and still feel ripped off.
