    I spent two hours in the dentist chair rocking to 70-80's classic rock. When I got home I checked out SiriusXM web site and didn't find it too helpful. I guess my question is it worth 15 bucks a month or not?

    It was great when I first subscribed, the novelty wore off and I returned to Pandora and MP3's.

    I had it in the car which I got free for the first year. It does get old after awhile and the commericals seemed to be increasing so I went back to just listening to my regular car radio. I am now setting up my iPad to the car radio to listen to my music and audio books on trips.

    I do about 30K a year of driving and couldn't live without it. I take the receiver into the house/shop and hook it to the stereo. Worth it for me because the only local radio is Clear Channel or Chapparel. HH

    I've had it for about 3 years and like it. You'll really appreciate it when you can drive 600 miles listening to the same station.

    I got it to listen to the College Sports channel (91) and after poking around with the rest of it I believe I'm going to let it lapse until next September.

    I would rather listen to music than some blabbering DJ on some "morning show" or the same 20 song playlist.

    Thanks for the replies everybody. I will be getting a new truck in March and will take advantage of the free trial. Then make a decision to keep or not. Sure enjoyed it for awhile.

    Patriot channel and football coverage is great when your traveling. No static and you can listen from state to state nonstop.

    Had it free with a new ride since Sept. Living in a remote rural area where regular radio reception is limited and there's only one local station I'm liking it. Still trying to figure out the payment options and some way around automatic billing.

    Attempts to talk to customer service have brought no help and representatives with a thick Hindu accent that insist they are in California...

    It's awesome if you do any long drives.
    Blue Collar radio is always a good way to stay awake at 0230 on a long stretch of I-70.
    Some good international radio too. Always some blues or reggae just a click away.
    Lots of news. I like it.

    I love it. We have one local rock station that is just ok. It plays the same 200 songs by the same 50 bands. It got old. I also like to listen to the liberal talk shows, especially Ed Shultz. Knowing what the enemy thinks is important.

    I love mine. I paid the lifetime fee about 5 years ago and haven't paid a penny since and I'm still enjoying it everyday. Howard Stern and Octane all night at work then I throw the receiver in my truck while I'm driving around.
