I have a couple of reasons why people would buy this radio , 1. Obviously every sports event would be on it. 2. Some people would want to listen to the CC Talk e.g. Beck and others. 3. The exclusive channels e.g. Cinemagic .
How much is the Xpress RC equivalent?
IMO they just made this radio in order to satisfy the FCC.
I think it's way beyond that. I think that all future radios they release will be this way. Why should they continue to make one set of radios for XM only, and one set for Sirius only? Buy one radio then subscribe to the service you want.
