Free SiriusXM until the end of the month. It just worked after a minute or so while I was driving.

I got a youtube ad expressly from Sirius announcing that they were doing that.
Of course, I own no cars or even car stereos made this century, so...

Another PSA, Spotify Premium, which comes with Hulu and Showtime, is $2.99/month if you're a college student (or know a college student's birthday).

TBH, I've never seen the point/draw of sat radio? Like.... I have streaming music or terrestrial radio.
Sat radio seems like the worst of both. Music you pay for, but can't choose the songs.

@carsoffortlangley unless you like country, pop, or classic rock there really isn't much around me on the radio, and only one classic rock channel really. Also, I don't stream outside of wifi because I don't have unlimited data.
For $5.99 a month I get tons more channels and options in my car and anytime I have wifi as well. And my channels don't go away when I go on a road trip.

Used to have sat radio on Sparrow. Listened to Braves baseball, BoTs, classical music and some radio theatre on it. Antenna is still mounted on the back deck and wired to the nav station. At $5 a month, I wonder if new radios can use the old antennas. Humm!

@carsoffortlangley We have it on my wife's Yukon. At the time we did not have unlimited data so streaming wasn't really an option and they had a deal that was cheap enough we said "why not"...I think it was 3 years for $100 or something.
Now that we've had it, I can say, for the right price, I would renew the subscription. You have a huge variety of music available and I like being able to just pick a station without typing anything in or looking for someone specific like with streaming.
I also don't need to worry about dicking around with my phone.
Plus, AM/FM radio there are usually a very limited number of stations in any given area, and road trips are a constant stream of finding a new station.

@carsoffortlangley I paid for it for a while just for the Major League Baseball package to listen to my old local team after I moved. I’m thinking of activating it again in my truck because our here there are a lot of trails where I don’t get FM or cellular reception. I do have some music downloaded to my phone but the set it and forget it of the radio is nice.

@CarsOfFortLangley I loved it when I spent all my time in the Sierras. No fm reached up there. Plus it was free because I bought a demo unit for $20 when circuit city was going out of business so I never even had an account it just kept working for years. It got turned off right before I sold that Jeep xj.
