    Enough of my favorites are there. I can pull out my old Audiovox XR9 and give my radio a rest.

    Must not.apply to all radios, none of my three old radios have anything available, left them on to receive a signal for an hour he last few days and didn't get anything bummer.

    I see hopalong howie must have pissed off the brass at Sirius since his channels aren't on the free preview.

    I believe he is on vacation for the duration of the preview. Since this is aimed at former subs, they have probably already heard the shows being aired.

    Soaking up some fantasy sports on ch 210. Are Opie and Anthony still on XM 105? Started to get into their schtick during the last preview. Never got use to Ron or Fez.

    Thanks, will set the SL-2 to capture some of their worst of the week stuff on Friday.

    I thought they had 100&101 on during the other previous freeviews.

    Meh, O & A didn't capture my undivided attention. Fantasy sports contained new shows, some good information and plenty of listener participation. I'd purchase XM 87 if it was an option. It was good while it lasted.

    There would appear to be another free preview: Nov 17th-30th.

    hah. Nice. My GF has my old sportser 4 in her truck. got to use it for 2 days before the last preview died. I'll let her know today that she has more time again.

    Sweet. I can use my built-in Sirius while on my drive from KC to Cinci and back. I have my GPS and iPhone chargers and didn't have a spot left for my XMP3 to plug-in. Problem solved!

    I didn't see it on my SL2 this evening. I'll have to do a shutdown after recording this evening and see how things go tomorrow night.

    Is this just limited to certain receivers? The only channel I'm able to pick up on my car's built-in receiver (Sirius) is the preview channel (184, I believe). I left that channel on for about 15 minutes thinking my receiver needed to receive a "subscription update" to get the free preview, but nothing ever happened. I can still only get 184.

    How old is your radio?

    I can get it with my 2005 XM XR9. Maybe it's a preview on XM receivers only but they usually do Sirius radios at the same time too.

    One thing for sure, I hooked up the XR9 to my soundbar, and it's very obvious now that my Edge and Onyx have superior sound quality compared to the older radio.

    It's an OEM radio in a 2009 Ford.

    My sportser 4 got the sub update yesterday, gets the free channels. Very limited selection. I was sad to see Octane and shade 45 were not included. Probably because they are both the flagship channels of their genre. Oh well, it gets mad dog radio, and that's the channel the packer game is on todaay, so that's good!
