The setup, then screw over.

When I got this email a week ago, I thought 'They are setting us up for a rate increase'.


the setup


And wouldn't you know I was dead on after today's email from Mel.


the screw over

I think its time to call and threaten to cancel and see what deal they want to offer. If anything the content has gotten worse not better. I certainly am not getting anything today that I feel is better than a year ago.

Well that makes it easier to cancel it come January. I'd have even more reason when they ask WHY I am cancelling.

My auto yearly renewal is in December.
2 Radios and Internet radio.

I'm at least cutting 1 radio out of the mix (the one in my car because I have an AUX input for my iphone). I'm most likely cutting off internet access too.

I can simply use the iphone with Pandora, Slacker, shoutcast, M Social Radio, etc..

The wife will keep hers because she has no AUX input and her CD player doesn't play MP3 files.

Anyway I'm downsizing not just because of this, but the audio quality is for the birds. Pandora on my iphone sounds clearer and skips less often.

I really haven't had Xm since my car got flooded out and my XM direct box under my seat shorted out in a flood.. But from what I remember before the merger the content was better..

Since then I just keep the ipod in the car with over 3 days of music it's good for state to state travels.. So when it comes to getting a new car head unit I have to rethink if I want to get siriusXM again.

What the heck are the current rates anyways?

With more and more options being available on smartphones like Pandora and TuneIn Radio. Sirius/XM is pricing themselves out of business. Especially in the music catagory. Its nice to be able to listen to WFNX, KFOG or Minnesota Public Radio anywhere I go.
