    If not what was the final straw for you to cancel?

    I am on the verge of canceling myself. Just to much crap and not enough quality content. I am not going to continue to pay for nothing. I am also not going to continue to pay for Oprah and Martha Stuart while SiriusXM fires all the radio personalities.
    Enough is enough.

    I really needed to have this in my car, what a shame. I will just use my iPod from now on until something better comes along.

    There are many many podcasts to choose from.

    Disclaimer: Keep in mind. I have no dog in this hunt. I am not telling anyone to cancel or not to cancel. I just wanted to see what this poll would say.

    I'm not in the car enough to justify it. I can bluetooth any podcast or music on my iPhone. The rest if the stuff ( news/weather ) i get on the phone anyway....

    I cancelled when he started taking 'an occasional' Friday off.

    Sirius tried to retain me as a customer. Had to call back a couple more times after still being billed. Took names. Kept telling them to pull me off the customer base. They kept billing. Sent me to collections. During this entire time, I never used the goddamned radio. Called the collections company and told them I would not be paying and how Sirius knew my intentions.

    Will never re-sub. Totally fucked company. Zero ethics.

    I got the sub for Wiggie. Once I started arguing with the radio on a daily bases, and calling him a faggot regularly, I cancelled that shit. I knew it was time to go.

    My problem is this. We are left paying Howard's, Oprah, and Martha Stuarts salaries.

    I dont listen to any of them. I am not paying for that. I liked Bubba but they fired. I never listened to O&A but they are true radio personalities and I dont mind paying for them.

    I let my subscription run out in January right after the birthday bash. They've been sending me tons of offers to re-subscribe, e.g. 5 months for $20, 6 months for $25. I may eventually re-subscribe for the music.

    i get the $25 for 6 months deal. easily worth that for me because it came installed in my car so it is very convenient to use. i wouldn't pay full price though.

    Attention SiriusXM.

    When are you going to put your customers above everything else? Until then you are losing people!!!

    Yah.

    Totally shitty. Thankfully the collections company sided with me after I provided them dates and names from my calls to Sirius. I have the feeling they get lots of calls disputing Sirius claims.

    I love TuneIn. App on Android and I use it on my computers. Tom Leykis showing up there brought me in.

    Live365 http://www.live365.com/new/index.live is also great for variety.

    I just keep calling to cancel and then renewing for 5 months for $20. I have an XM radio though, so I don't get H100.

    Maybe it's time to subscribe to something else find someone to make fun of and continue having fun. This is getting pathetic :jj:

    Who else can we make fun of? :c

    I've been at the point for quite awhile now that I don't even want to be bothered using "alternate sources" to listen to what this once compelling show has evolved into.

    If Lebron can forgive and even play for that racist pile of vile Dan Gilbert they can rehire Anthony Cumia for the questionable comments on his personal twitter. Until that happens I'll never resubscribe to SiriusXM no matter how many deals and emails they send to me hourly, its getting pathetic.
