Anyone still use XM or Sirius?

I see they have their free channel lineup available. Been listening to it and though about canceling my Spotify and switching to them. Anyone else still use their services?

No, I had it years ago when it came free with a car for a while.  Kept it for a few years as they kept offering 50% off when I would go to cancel.  That routine got old and I don't drive far enough often enough for satellite radio to matter much.

Is their streaming offering at all comparable to Spotify?  Their site currently tells me "Free listening is over, lock in 6 months for some discount price"   Either way, I can't imagine they have the catalog size to match spotify or other services that give you both radio options, curated playlists and an ability to create your own library/playlists.  I don't know first hand, but I would imagine they are closer to pandora than Spotify?

We have it in the vehicle temporarily. It's ok and was nice for long drives. But I think you'd miss Spotify in short order.

I dunno - I think services like Spotify offer a lot more.  If you are just looking to save money, drop Spotify and turn on your FM radio.

I signed up for the $30 for 6 months thing. I will just cancel before it comes. It's nice to have when your traveling.

My subscription was up and I called in, they tried to give me the run around again about cancelling. I go "look if you want to give me another deal for 6 more months I will sign back up again". The guy goes "how about 6 months for $35"? So I signed back up again. :)
