    I've been subscribed since the Sirius Debut and have been subscribed the last few years purely because I've forgotten to cancel ahead of my auto-renew.

    Called this morning to cancel and gleefully rejected the ever-lower offers (they bottomed out at 5 months for $30). I made sure to say the fact that Howard is boring, politically correct, and on only 20% of mornings was the sole cause for cancellation.

    I also badmouthed Jon Hein and Booey, asking the lady if I could check off "Gary Dell'Abbate is not on-air talent, he is a monkey' in the reason for cancellation. Sadly it was not a choice.

    This [​IMG] is the dance I did once I cancelled and said it was because Stern sucks now. The guy on the phone said I wasn't the first one to say that and tried to sell me on the other services.

    You really should have re-upped for the good of the forum, because if Howard leaves Sirius and subscribers go down in Q4 20015 and Q1 2016, it will not be good for Dawgshed Howard Forum morale

    Ehh...Howard and Beth post show may be just as interesting. As it is we have hardly any threads relating to the current show.

    If Howard had foresight, he would have bought a few hundred thousand radios with subscriptions when he started at Sirius, and stored them where he keeps all the Oh My Dog and Yoda books, then he can cancel them all on his last day to make it look like anyone out there gives a flying fuck that he ain't there no more.

    At $100 per? Fuck no they didn't. That's a weeks budget.

    I'd love to see the success of a flat whoever started by someone with real popularity.

    Justin bieber, for example.

    They went down to 6 months for $20 bucks last letter. I was paying until they shut it off with notice, now I make up a new email address each month and get the app for free.

    Howard getting a pay cut or losing his Sirius gig altogether will be directly related to cancellation complaints like OP's, so yes, he probably did show Howard.

    Good for you. I canceled a week or so back for the same reason as you. I tried telling them that, but they barely spoke English.
