    Just got an email that they are increasing Family plans and internet radio by $1. It is not to much longer for this company at this point now that internet is $5.99 a month for commercials and interruptions. I just discovered Jango and listened for 5 hours for free and heard 1 30 second ad. The power of Stern.

    The price of SiriusXM Select and Select Family Friendly packages will increase by $1 per month effective the next billing date on and after April 27, 2016. Effective this same date standalone SiriusXM Internet Radio will increase by $1 per month.

    We really hope you enjoy the programming we bring you. And that you know we’ll never stop doing everything we can to transform every ride into a joy ride. We’ll keep making traffic your jam whether you’re headed across town or across the country. And we will always be here to help you find whatever that is. Maybe that’s 24/7 commercial-free music of every type or talk radio that runs the spectrum. Maybe it’s comedy that makes you laugh-‘til-it-hurts or sports that make you cheer. Or maybe for you, it’s a little bit of everything.

    Whatever it is, just know we won’t stop until you hear it.

    They always crow about how good subscriber numbers are, but really, how many of them are just people who bought new cars?

    I know I didn't renew mine after the year was up.

    Excellent point but there are those who will subscribe simply because they are used to something, which is why its free initially. And so they can lie about/pump their "subscriber" numbers.

    When I had it, I didnt really listen to terrestrial radio anymore.

    How often did you find yourself listening to satellite radio?

    I'd say maybe 1/3 of the time, I'd listen to Sirius; the other 2/3 were split between podcasts and local radio. After the sub ran out, I just got into the HD radio more and found sub channels I liked. I don't miss the Sirius.

    Hadn't heard of Jango until today.

    I have my iPod plugged in my truck most of the time, and when I'm not listening to that, it's local sports and news radio.

    It just dawned on me that I gave up on the Stern revolution almost 9 years ago. Haven't missed it.
