    Constant crashes. Less features than before. Doesn't work in Safari, Firefox, Explorer...only Chrome or on phones. They also removed all access to the Legacy player (which was fine BTW).

    All of the Sirius Internet players have sucked. When I had Sirius, the stupid thing took forever to connect and then it would automatically sign me out after 30 minutes. Then I'd have to go through the same thing again to reconnect it. Piece of shit.

    It's the new and improved Sirius radio app. Haven't you heard the commercials. The bug is listen on one device and then pick up where you left off another. It's a stupid feature that causes the crashes. It causes the app to go into the cloud to find the reference point.

    Does Sirius still offer radios and such like the Stiletto back in the day? I always suspected they made their Internet players shitty on purpose to force people to buy their hardware.

    They discontinued the stiletto a couple of months ago, no longer supported it. When I cancelled the device they offered another radio, I said no thanks. Still have it in my car and the web. Not sure you need a player nowadays with smart phones.

    Don't limit your criticism to the Internet app. Sirius is a piece of shit.

    Their hardware has always been disappointing ... pretty much from day 1.

    My first Xact Visor worked perfectly in the car for over 4 years, as did the 2nd one until I cancelled 9 months ago. They still sell them, only 30 bucks on amazon

    Works fine for me using IE. Goes into an endless loop of <<LOADING>><<LOADING>><<LOADING>><<LOADING>> using FF.

    It figures they'd launch a new player during a holidaze period when no help is available.

    Check back on Monday to see what the SXM twatter monkey has to say.

    They keep adding channels (Comedy Greats, Fox Headline News, Tom Petty Radio) which you can't get on older radios like the Xact and Sirius One. If they think this will motivate me to buy a new radio from those fucking thieves, they're badly mistaken.

    It used to only be high numbered channels for things like fantasy football (who gives a fuck?) that you couldn't receive on the old Sirius radios. Now low channel numbers like 13 and 18 (Limited Edition Channels) don't work either. I have a Clarion Calypso and an S-50, both of which have powerful FM modulators. None of the new radios have modulators. There's no way I'm giving up my old radios.

    • “The Highway”, 54 times weekly / 6 times daily

    Gee, a lot or repeats on an SXM channel. Sounds familiar.

    I know they have limited bandwith blablabla, but you can't tell me they couldn't give us Chs. 13, 18, 31, 94, etc. on older radios if they wanted to. They all USED to work on older radios. Fuck SXM...buncha thieves! They STILL want Sirius subscribers to pay extra for Opie's channel (say what you will...at least they do four days a week and have other shows). Even if I was willing to pay extra, I would need to buy a new radio. Nah, I'll keep downloading their shows from You Tube. FUCK SIRIUS...XM Too!

    Anyone hear the interview with "Martine" on Mammary Lane the other day? He (she?) is the trans-sexual who supposedly invented satellite radio? It was pre-merger, maybe 2007? This Martine chick was talking about how the merger would benefit everyone on earth, and of course Howie couldn't agree more! How'd that work out for everyone? Martine and Wiggy got richer. For subscribers, not so good!
