my dad's got it, I think Sirius. He really likes it, and wants to wire everything he's got (2 cars, house, boat) with it.
I guess it's a lot like that Digital Music Xpress (DMX) service you can get with Digital Cable on your TV.

Yeah between the two id definately go with sirius they just seem to be expanding more that XM. I have it right now and like it for finding new more underground type bands and some of the talk/information stations are great too. I still find myself listening to mp3 cds when im looking for a specific song though. Overall id say its worth it because its a real low price to pay and id go for sirius between the two of them.

I have XM hardwired into my car. It's ok, but only listen to 3 or 4 stations. I got it for free, so I'm not really out anything if I decide it sucks. That said, I haven't really made up my mind about it yet.
I do notice that I lose the signal pretty frequently, but only for a few seconds at a time.Of all the muthafuckas on earth, you the muthafuckest.

If you listen to live sports, XM has MLB and Serius has the NFL."I smell varmint puntang."

The "fm modular" models only get signal where you can get an fm signal. The more expensive ones have an actual satelite reciever and you can get it in the middle of kansas...or at least that is the way it used to be.
both companies sell their hardware at a huge loss and are spending tons of money on marketing because they think only one of them is going to live and the one that can get the most first time subscribers will be the one that makes it. neither company looks to be profitable for several (+5) years.
i would go with a MLB.Craig Kelly is my co-pilot.

I had Sirius for over a year. It was nice, but with the exception of news, it got pretty repetitive. There are tons of channels, but there are only so many that you listen to, so you start to hear the same stuff over and over. One nice thing, especially on long drives, was the comedy channels. However, like everything else, they also got repetitive.
I couldn't justify the cost given the limited amount of time I spend in my car. I also have an MP3 player, so there's no shortage of music. I think it really depends on why you want it. If you want to be able to listen to news and sports, then go for it. If it's just for music, then you might want to consider if the cost (set-up and equipment costs on top of the subscription) is worth it.
I will say that's it's nice to have the equipment installed. Whenever I take cross country trips, I call and pay for a month's service. Otherwise, I don't use it.
