    Sirius Radio

    Anyone here a subscriber? I just got a killer deal from Slickdeals (Stratus 4 shipped+2 months service and activation for $.01 shipped).

    What're the good channels? Any other advice?

    XM for years here, it will be nice when it is all 1 company.

    I have had Sirius for about 5 years... I am happy with Sirius, but will be happier after the merger.

    Re: Sirius Radio

    I've had both SIRIUS (now) and XM. I love SIRIUS WAY more than XM.

    Living outside of Iowa it's awesome because they cover the Big 12. That I just like the different music stations more.

    But since they are merging, it really doesn't matter

    Here's the deal:

    Sirius deal

    The one cent shipping code is dead now though. It would cost you 5-8 bucks for the deal shipped now.

    I'm a blues fan. Sirius blues 74 is where it's at.

    Re: Sirius Radio

    Sirius is just like Tivo. You really don't know what your missing until you have it then you would never give it up.

    For us older guys I like channel 15 which is Classic Rewind and 19 Buzzsaw all classic metal. Then there's 23 Hair Nation all 80s hair bands. Then there's channel 10 E Street Nation which is all Springsteen but I think that's ending at the end of May. Not to mention all Cyclone football and basketball games so if you happen to be on the road you won't miss a play due to static or no signal.
