I am in the midst of a one year Sirius sub. I also have XM for the next 3 years. With the new lineup changes, I don't need to keep both services active. Just wondering if Sirius charges a cancellation fee if you cancel before the year is up. If not, do I get back the unused portion of my subscription fee? I may only have 3 months or so left on it. I think it renews in February or March.

I think they do have an early cancellation fee on semi annual and yearly plans. But there is only one way to find out. They may prorate it out since you only have such a short period left.

Thanks for the quick reply. I guess the only way to find out for sure is to call them. They'll probably offer me 3 free months. :rolleyes:

More bandwidth please
Maybe they'd be willing to let you cancel your Sirius and apply the remaining unused months to your XM sub without penalty, or vice versa, assuming you still want to keep one of them.

Had 5 radios on my account, 2 of which are mine and I called to cancel. Took about 20 minutes, but I got one of my units canceled, no fees. I paid for the yearly service in September, and they credited me back the money to put towards my main radio on the account. They even put a hold on my canceled receiver in case I re-activate, so saves me the $15 activation fee.

The second I hung up the phone, the radio was already dead.

I don't see what the problem would be. Isn't it one company? The way I see it you are just removing a radio from your account.

That's what everyone says. I think that is if you are canceling your one and only sub. I had to cancel a radio that wasn't working well and this woman did it with no effort and didn't even say a word about why!
