    Maybe they are hoping I hear Howard's announcement that he has a new deal
    and that i will pay them money again to listen to his shit show.

    Is it all the channels or just their low end tier minus Howard's channels and any other decent non-music channel?

    I turned on my receiver in my truck and after it updated my channels, 100 and 101 were working.

    Yep, every month I get an email from them. I treat it like Howig did when he received gifts from people...right in the trash.

    Will they count your free subscription toward Howard's bonus?

    You'll get two live Howard Stern shows in that 14-day trial.

    Didn't they do the same thing right when Howard made his announcement he was re-signing last time? Potentially trying to get back lost subscribers if Howard renews?

    Although if you canceled because Howard sucked before, I don't know what him renewing would do to get you to renew your subscription.

    Probably because they were afraid people would trash their Sirius devices in fear that they might accidentally hear Howard.

    I'm getting 2 weeks for free in my car, but no Hair Nation or Stern.

    I pay for Sirius in my other car...you'd think they'd bundle it or something.

    But, I honestly can't see Sirius lasting much longer

    Or maybe they are hoping after the 2 weeks, you sign up for the deal before hearing Howard is gone. These kinda deals could be how they'll keep numbers from dropping as soon as Howard leaves and also hoping some of these people won't find Howard-less Sirius to be worthless and stick around even after the 5 months.

    Sirius does this approx. four times a year...nothing to do with Wiggy. Attempt to get people with inactive radios to re-up.

    Had some channels pop up today in a car we cut the service on a while back. I figure it was the promotional thing. What's funny is they limited it to only some channels, therefore proving to people that Sirius sucks and they were right to cancel.
