Default Sirius radio installed

Well like I said it'* been awhile since I've been on so catching up on somethings, got Sirius added about 2 months ago. So far I like it and the programing is pretty good. Favorite station is 43 backspin.

I got the antena in the car on the front dash board and it works great there. you can see it in the picture. Just got the Alpine-Sirius adapter not the kind you take with you. Have noticed that you can listen online and drive in the car with it, kinda a like a double bonus, my girlfriend listens to it all day at work.

Alpine compatable and Wanted to go for the little guy, everyone has xm. Now theres a Alpine-xm adapter for my head unit but don't care I like Sirius.

I paid for 6 months at like $58 I believe, and the brain box was $70 neatly stashed under the carpet on passenger floor

XM isn't going to be 9.99 anymore. Current subscribers get the rate until their subscription runs out and then the price goes up to 12.99. They're adding the online stream that Sirius already offered at no charge. So they're back to even.

I heard that within the year XM is going to offer Music videos and movies for an additional charge for those mobile TV people.

Either way you can't go wrong with XM or Sirius. Unless you are buying it for sports. I have my favorite Sirius stations and favorite xm stations.

i would only have sirius like you do, integrated into my HU, simply because I do not like the way the actual units look.... however xm'* units look decent and I do not mind displaying my myfi...

either way sat. radio is a very nice thing to have especially when you live where the radio stations are very biased.
