    Question about XMRO vs SRO

    So...since the company has merged, why doesnt Sirius offer the same Online only deal for $7.99 ? I mean specially with the app comming out soon, having the price at 7.99 would be a killer deal for those target customers ? I dont see why sirius would have it for 13.00 with/o a radio, and xm for 8$...someone elaborate ?

    I've had Sirius on-line-radio for almost 2 yrs. before I decided to buy a Sirius-Radio, and I would like to clear up some confusion that's going around other websites like this one, 1st of all Sirius has always had the 128 bit stream as long as I had it, and XM did not, all XM offered was 64 bit-streaming up until MARCH 11th, 2009, with that being said, XMs $7.99 a month on-line-64 bit streaming is now premium 128 bit for $12.95 without a Radio sub, and $2.99 with a radio sub, both Sirius as well as XM now offer both premium on-line-streaming 128 bit at the above stated price-range.........



    I hope that clears up all the confusion about Sirius XMs on-line-streaming.......currently XM is having a lot of problems with the new 128 bit streaming and pricing, but Sirius has NEVER had a problem with any of this, I'm sure XM with the help of Sirius will get this all fixed, as it's a real mess for all you XM subs who want the 128 bit stream along with your subs, but most of you XMers aren't getting it, instead your only getting the 32 bit stream, with a notice that says " you must upgrade to the premium 128 bit stream " I do hope XM subs get what they are paying for, once this Mess is all sorted-out

    I do believe you are incorrect in your statement. You can sign up for a free 3 day trial, but it will not stream at 128K. Do try, I believe you will see I am correct.

    last week when I tried both 3-day-trails XMRO & SRO they, both were 128 bit stream, but that was only for 3 days, even tho, (when I go to my account-page on SIRIUS) it says click here to activate your FREE On-line-radio, so I click it on.......

    No where on that page does it state, that I will be getting 128 bit for FREE only the free online stream is only 32K), but when I click that on, it takes me to an upgrade page instead, asking for $2.99 with my current sub, now, if I didn't pay the $2.99 extra I wouldn't be getting it, instead I would only be getting the 32K Free Stream, so, I paid the $2.99, then after that, I'm getting the 128 bit stream, but my account-page now says Amount Due $1.13......confusing as Hell I know, it even says $1.13 charged on my VISA CARD with todays date 3/25/09.......really confusing....
