    A phone call from SXM JUST AGGRAVATED me. I canceled my sub in early 2010 and I recall them billing me two extra months when the radio was deactivated. I just bought a 2015 WRX. (Yeah I'm broke now) and the 6 month trial for SXM has expired. Now I get junk mail and phones calls everyday from this pathetic company. I can't stand the way they treat their talent and all the good programming is gone.
    No more.

    Total shit radio. My iPod with 20,000 songs is way better and all the great podcast destroy SXM.
    And I'm able to catch up on jimmy and Opie via YouTube the same day. Everyone should cancel so we can laugh when their satalites are used for scrap metal.
    Ok rant over.

    Does your WRX have a SIM card slot?

    Other than people with long commutes that like repetitive semi-commercial free music, I don't see why anyone subscribes.

    Just the AOL phenomenon. People keep paying whatever bill comes in. And they don't like to see their new car radio lose a feature.

    I hung on to my subscription for a while longer than I should have because of the NFL channel. But then they deteriorated as well. Out went X's-and-O's and tough critiques of players, coaches, and GMs. In came hyping the quarterbacks and blaring whichever fluff story also headlining SportsCenter.

    No, I don't think so. But after the cold air intake it has 300 beefuses under the hood. It's fun.

    They are so lame not to offer online subs only and at discounts etc. They are hanging onto this ridiculous equipment that people don't want and don't need.

    I miss it (Patriot channel/Andrew Wilkow) in my husband's truck and they keep sending us promotions. I called one time since cancelling it and just having to go through giving out all our personal information over the phone (when it is already hooked up through our phone number), it just wasn't worth it.

    I still miss it, but won't deal with their customer service policies.
