    I dont know about that ...but I do know I recieve my notice today when I went to sign on line about the march deadline for updating my sub...

    They say it will be free with a upgrade as a lifetime sub.. or 2.99mo...

    Im okay with that Ive been getting it for free for 3 years... I guess I will have to make a decision...Ill proberly get a portable reciever I can use my S-50 in the house....But Im not upset and Im not gonna make any treats to cancel!

    I know a lot of people who had it for free won't like the idea of paying for it, but I've been paying for the 128k stream for some time now and I do enjoy the higher quality. I don't have a portable radio so I listen to it at work most of the time. I just wish they would add all the channels instead of a select few.

    You would be suprised at how many people never use the basic internet radio to begin with. Now they are asking those who do so to pay for it - BUT you will be paying for the Premium Internet Radio, which I've been doing for over a year anyway, and will be enjoying excellent sound quality that surpasses the Satellite quality on most music channels.

    This is a good thing, not a bad thing. The company spends a fortune on licenses for the internet portion of it's service and it needs to save money somehow.

    Locked in my lifetime sub yesterday... I had already paid nearly $400 for a 3 year package a couple months ago which they refunded anyways, so I went ahead and added Best of Sirius (I am XM subscriber) for an extra hundred bucks. It also locked in my free internet for the life of my package.

    Not a bad deal for $100.
