Do you do Satelitte Radio?

Postby nebbie2004 » Sat May 21, 2005 9:50 pm

My question to everyone is:

Do you currently own/plan to buy a Satelitte Radio?

If so, which do you currently own/plan to buy? XM Radio or Sirius Radio?

Also, which one do you think is better(Ill already know but Ill let you guys talk it out first) :-D ?

(please dont tell me you only have XM because it was factory pre-installed, other than that you dont listen to it, el lame-o, lol j/k)

I got an XM radio as a gift...it's very good, but focused around baseball...not a bad thing during baseball season so I can pretty much listen to every game. But Sirius has it with football...so during the season, you can listen to every NFL game each week...I don't know about comparisons in their music but assuming you love football much more than baseball, you're probably best off with the Sirius. But music wise, I'm very pleased with XM...it has a little something for everyone.

I know that Sirius is better for football, but if you are willing to skip the football package, XM is the way to go. More channels, more conservative minded on teh talk channels (if you are that way), and of course Pl ayboy (filter) radio! XM! XM! XM!

My dad is thinking about getting it. Nowdays there are way to many commercials on the radio. 5 minute commercials are now normal.

Does Sirius have the local radio guys doing the football games? It'd be worth it to listen to them and turn down the sound on the lame TV crews.

Actually it's the local guys doing the broadcasts, bad thing about it is, TV is like on a 2 second delay there about, and Radio, 5-7 second delay, so another words they would be calling the play you just watched while you watching the current play; could get confusing.

Wouldn't getting Playboy radio be kind of like buying their magazine for the articles?

Anyway, I'm leaning towards Sirius because of the NFL games but maybe I should take another look at XM. After all, I catch most of the games on TV.

I was having to make this decision over Christmas, and I went with Sirius. Much better NFL coverage, equal or better music stations, and Howard Stern coming on January 1, 2006. ;-D

I highly recommend Sirius; haven't had any problems.

I was really thinkin' of getting satellite radio a couple years ago... but since I'm almost always listenin' to my CDs, I didn't. I'm still interested in SIRIUS though - the Howard Stern factor and all.
