    Re: Sirius and XM Merger

    My dad, being a trucker, LOVES his satellite radio.
    For obvious reasons.
    Personally, I don't have any use for it, but it certainly is a great feature to have if your willing/needing to pay for it.

    Re: Sirius and XM Merger

    I really love my sirius radio subscription.
    I have a radio that comes out of my car and can be used in a boom box in the house.
    I also have free internet access to half of the channels which include Howard Stern and NFL Radio.
    I honestly feel that my sirius subscription is essential to me.
    More important than Cable TV.
    I also agree with Marrdro that the Movin the chains Radio show is great. I also enjoy the Sirius blitz radio program.

    The Blitz is pretty good as well, I just don't get to listen to it much any more since the changed the time slots.

    Re: Sirius and XM Merger

    I love mine.

    NBA
    NFL
    College BB
    CNBC

    and occasionally I listen to music....... between 18 and 25 or so on the dial, flip back and forth.

    XM should add MLB that would be nice.

    I got a funny feeling that now that they have merged, the MLB, NFL, and NBA will not be part of the norm.
    They will have a monopoly.
    I don't expect them to gouge us, but they will have to make it more profitable for themselves which they said the merger will do.
    I hope I am wrong.

    I agree...I heard that they were going to keep the subscription rate around the $13 per month price, but with the "a la carte" menu, I also feel some of the ones you mentioned will be premium-priced.

    BTW, my favorite music station is "Left of Center".

    Re: Sirius and XM Merger

    I guess when I drive I just listen to the local sports radio and/or CDs, I'll save the money for Sunday Ticket next year.


    I m like a Ja Rule poster, cause I'm off the wall.

    TV I understand, but radio?
    We have a sports radio station down here stallion that is the worst.
    The guy is a Rams fan and hates every other team.
    If you try to call in and talk football (heck any sport) he calls you an idiot and hangs up on you and then talks smack about you and your team.

    He won't take my calls anymore cause I said I was gonna start a petition to get him fired.



    Anyway, the guys on NFL Sirius are gol 'darnit good analysts that talk to a level that everyone can learn something from.

    If you ever get the chance, check out "Moving the Chains".
    Best talk radio show out there.

    I'm listening to it online now. Good show, but Adam is so annoying at times. Pat Kirwan is an excellent analyst.

    I don't even own a Sirius radio (even though all stations are not available online). For those of you thinking about a subscription, you need to know that for each radio you own, you will need to purchase a separate subscription, albeit at a lower price.
    Two things....

    1.
    I hated Kirwan.
    Now that I listen to him on the radio my opinion has changed 180 degrees.
    I love his insight.
    I've called him 3 times now and just recently found out him and the Chiller are good friends.

    2.
    I don't listen to it at work.
    I think my PPO destraction is about all the boss can handle.

    ;D

    I know what you mean... ;D

    Makes sense, with local radio you have to find a new station every couple hours of driving. Never thought of that, it would be real nice for the long road trip, like the Tennessee game.

    You mean Sirius because XM has MLB.
