The FINAL straw was the bullshit iphone app Sirius released. I now listen to Slacker exclusively on my iphone in my car and in the gym.
What's wrong with the iPhone app? Is it one of those "hoo-hoo, I'm too good to re-neg my contract so I'll just make them take me off it" situations?
I don't know if this counts but when they started charging extra for the internet connection, my Shitster (I mean Sportster) stopped working around the same time so I cancelled the radio and kept the internet. I usually just download the shows I like via Replay AV and play them back on the iPod in the car or at home when I want.
However, the main reason I cancelled was not the broken radio or money, but Sirius/ XM's best kept secret: many people like me just can't get a good signal 24/7 if they live in the wrong neighborhood. I would bring my radio with the home dock to work and office reception was fantastic thanks to the repeater, but in my apartment with that piece of shit antenna hanging out the window, too many annoying drop-outs, especially at certain times of the day. It used to frustrate the shit out of me. No mas. The only thing that sucks is I miss the music channels in the car, since I'm not inclined to download segments of the music channels.
The Signal is a lot better for SIRIUS with the new Satellite. Let me know if you want a replacement Shitster. I will help you out with that. Or a new PowerConnect radio.
"hoo-hoo"? ROFL! How old are you, 7?
No Howard makes the iphone app USELESS to me.
I cancelled due to;
Poor reception. (Just a few more seconds of caching would have eliminated most of my drop outs- or a sirius bird in the Clark belt- whoops too late!)
Shallow play lists.
Oh, yeah and one other thing...
SINGLE ARTIST CHANNELS!
Oh, I do hate the Single ARtist Channels but thankfully, when they do these they never interfere with a channel that I listen to anyway.
