I have XM and love it...Opie and Anthonly kick ass, Ron and Fez start Monday, and the music is awesome...they play a lot more stuff than Sirius (deeper playlists) and all is uncensored and uncut. You hear so much you don;t hear on regular radio and there are no commercials...once you go you will not go back...
A buddy of mine has Sirius and is dumping it at the end of the year for XM.
I have XM as well..................
How are you doing by the way?
Lots of opinions:
XM is awesome. I just got it and even on the longest trips, you'll never get bored
I don't want to have to mount something to my dash though...
i have xm for 2+ years now.
dont buy that "no commercial" crap cause it aint true. eventhough there are not maxi pad or diet pepsi commercials, there is a health amount of bullshiit to interup what you want to listen to. what makes it worse, the same filler crap is on every channel so you get to listen to it ALOT more if you channel hop alot.
thats kinda lame!
BUT, i do like it. Especially on road trips as stated above. and all the new channels.
... this is a FOX News Alert..
Sprint now sends Sirius through its phones to Vision customers. The announcement kinda got lost in the iPod shuffle (sorry) this week...
My fiancee really wants it for Christmas... I'll have to look into it.
I'm going into my 3rd year with it, and I guess it depends on the channels you tune and the time of day. I've never heard anything other than XM promotional crap on the channels I like, and it's infrequent. I have heard commercials on some of the stuff my wife listens to, like E!
It doesn't have to be. You can get an underseat unit that runs through the stereo, if your stereo is also an XM/Sirrius controller. I have the XM Roady and used to just sit it in the coin tray while using it.
You should be kicked where your nuts would be for starting this thread.
Stosh, Rob and I both have ours clipped via a vent mount. If you do a search online, you'll find a million ways to attach the XM without leaving a permanent mark (and don't buy Sirrius, XM is way superior). As for the "commercials" they're for other XM shows. Basically, it gives the DJ a chance to go and pee because without commercials, there's no time to leave the desk. Plus, there are so many channels that one 20 second blurb isn't going to leave you with nothing to listen to.
I have Sirius, which kicks ass!!!! Way better music selection than XM.
I plan on getting sirius so I can continue to listen to Howard.
You lie like a rug. I have Sirius because they gave me the hardware free. Wish I had XM though, it has 3 maybe 4 times the music selection. They may no have "Paid advertising" but the hype is second to none and the DJ's are just [if not more] annoying. Do yourself a favor and take advantage of their free 30 day internet trials. Decide for yourself what you think of it.
But then you have to deal with duchebag known as Howard Stern
I've had sirius for about a year and I won't go back to regular radio. I chose sirius over xm because of the NFL network. Check siriusbackstage.com and xmfan.com before you pick one or the other.
XM user here, I like it plenty...
I beg to differ with you, the music is WAY better on Sirius, plus XM doesn't play any hard metal. I've listen to both, so I know these things.
i am with you on that. i have been listening to howard since i was 8years old, bout 10 years now. i just hope that sirius makes a portable player kinda like that xm2go thingy.
I heard Howard on regular AM the other day. What's up with that? I was confused...
Howard needs to crawl into a hole and die
Howard? Howard fvcking Stern? Mr. Hoo Hoo I invented everything Robin? That cum monkey is such a whiny little b!tch. Yes, let's run to Uncle Mel when another personality in the same area actually gets some publicity. Sure, Howard can go into markets with other DJs and kill them in ratings, but if you even so much as SPEAK about Howard the Coward, he slaps a C&D on you. Yeah, big man with your pussy perm.
Die on regular radio where you belong with all the other plebeians Hoo Hoo.
Tell 'em Fred.
O AND A PARTY ROCK!
dam, someone's panties are in a bunch!
Nah, I just have my definite preferance. I think Howard is a repetetive ass, and needs to just retire already.
And the fact that he's lying about him "being the first to do it on satellite" bugs the hell out of me.
I have XM in my dorm room and Serius in my car, and XM is deffinitly better!
That must get expensive
Somebody is droppin' ~$39,000.00 for his boarding school so I doubt the cost of both of these is an issue...
Remember I am on Aid, so we are only paying about half. The radios arn't that expensive really. Just the base systems are pricey, not the service.
stosh, I own the equip for sirius but I haven't installed or subscribed to it because I'm lazy. One cool thing about it, is the setup I have I can take the receiver out of my car when I get home and use it at home, all on the same subscription. More bang for your buck I think.
Xm is exactly the same.
Not to mention the kickass MyFi that you can get XM ANYWHERE, live.
Yeah, it's cool stuff and when I have my XM on in the house I can listen to it anywhere because it sends out a signal that any radio can pick up
yea, thats the bad thing bout sirius. i have yet to find a sirius to go player or something along those lines. :'(
there are a lot of bad things about sirius
im gettin sirius cuz i know lots of people who have it, plus Howard Stern is movin there
