I choose Sirius back in 2003 for a couple of reasons:
1-Got the Hardware for free with a prepaid year sub.
2-At the time XM was still running commercials on their music stations (before the Clear Channel Stations) I couldnt fathom paying for a music service AND listening to commercials.
Yeah but XM was only $9.95/mo back then...
Plus it was only like a 30 second spot for Wrigley's gum or something like that per hour...
Haha, I remember reading on XMFAN back in the day, some posters SWORE that they actually ENJOYED the "commercial breaks" lol!
Funny, those same people got awfully excited when XM DID go commercial free, was it early 04? I think so..
