Sirius Subscription Questions


Recommended Posts

Our 6 month complimentary Sirius satellite radio subscription will expire here shortly while I am still overseas. The SGT is currently parked in the garage, not being driven.

 

Is there a penalty if I let it lapse? Is it better to renew it immediately even if it wont be used until sometime next year?

 

I won't be back for quite a while. Although I am on the downhill slide of an Army 15 month deployment. I know I can contact Sirius or Ford but thought somebody here may have the answers right quick.

 

Thank you.

I don't think there is a penalty for letting it expire, seems like they are always running specials when they call or mail me to renew.

 

However, mine is still going more than one year after purchase. I'm not sure if I'll renew anyway but definitely not when it's still working !!!

You can call or contact Sirius & have them suspend the service while a car is in storage or not being used. Once you pull it back out or want to use it call/contact them again & have them turn it back on. I'm not sure if a fee is required but you can ask. Also before the subscription runs out they will send you a package in the mail with several offers like a 6 month, 1 year , 2 year or 3 year deal saving you some money in the long run. what they don't tell you is they offer a pay 1 time & your done deal that is a LIFETIME SATELLITE RADIO SUBSCRIPTION for around $499, but you have to ask about it to see if they still offer it since it's not listed under their service plans anymore. They should also offer you the same $75 savings (as they did with the mail offer package deals they sent you) for renewing before it expires bringing the cost down to $424 for the LIFETIME SATELLITE RADIO SUBSCRIPTION. Hope this helps answer your question & stay safe while your over their & thanks for serving our country.

 

ps: here is the Sirius customer service ph# (888)-539-SIRIUS (7474) & make sure to ask for your free internet radio access so you can listen via your computer if it has speakers, it comes with any paid subscription plan.

Thanks for the quick responses and the good information. Sounds like you have a great deal going there SGTDreamer!

 

I will look for the package and go from there. I would sign up for the lifetime subscription in a heartbeat if they offered it. I am not sure if I would have ordered Sirius satellite radio but I love some of the stations they offer.

 

Thanks again, as always, for the kind words of support.

I suggest letting it expire. Quite a few folks around here let theirs expire but the service was never turned off. Free sat radio!

Agreed. My car is over a year old and the thing is still working. In my area I find the FM radio stations are more clear with more defined tones than the Sirius music stations.

I've got Sirius in my 08 Focus, and that's my big complaint. The sound quality of Sirius is horrible!

I renewed my subscription at one year (6 more months) and it's about to expire again. I'll probably go another 6 which seems to be offered at a reduced per month rate.

I also have XM in my truck and if I had to pick between the two XM would be the winner. But the thing to keep an eye on here is the impending merger between the two. I've spoken to some customer support people on both ends and they seem to indicate that music selections from both providers will be available on any radio (i.e. your old radio should be able to pick up either one). I think the selection is better on the XM side, more variety of my type of music. I have a little XM add on unit attached to my dash in the truck playing via FM radio channel and sounds great. I'm hoping to benefit by the merger in any case.

Sirius has evidently elected to allow my free 6 mo. subscription to continue, so far, for an additional 8 months. I think that's good of them.

Complimentary?

 

It was 195 bucks on my invoice. I never turned it on. Got a hole in my trunk lid and Sirius calling me once a week to renew my subscription. Don't get me started on this...

Sirius radio rocks I have three life time subs and one for the shelby. Never had problems with sound, it is really nice to turn on one station and drive thousand of miles without changing every 50 miles. Howard Stern is as good as ever!!! bubba booee to all :happy feet: :devil: :shift:

1977, my Shelby goes up for the winter so my sub. ran out like last November. So this spring when I broke her out I was getting ready to call and they called me actually. I wanted to renew just for 6 months at a whack. I got a deal...I dont recall the exact price but it was like buy 4 months get 2 free kind of thing. I listen to it alot. Only problem is we have alot of tree branches hanging over our roads out here and it never fails when you get a great tune on it cust in and out. Oh well its better than commercials on regular radio :)

Let it expire. It will likely still work. We bought a used Fusion with nav and sat radio and it is still working in that car. The car is nearly 2 years old. At this point, I'm just curious how long it will continue to work. It's at least a year over it's subscription though. Like someone else said, it sounds awesome in the Fusion with the audiophile system in that car. The stereo system is much better than the one in my Mach 1.

Read online this morning that the XM/Sirius merger has not received FCC approval yet. However, there is a member on the approving panel that says he will vote for the merger if they set aside 75 of the 300 total channels for public interest and minority broadcasting. Isn't socialism wonderful! There won't be a demand for the channels but someone will have to pay and that is........ All of us or the taxpayers. BTW, forgot to mention, he is a democrat. Go Figure! More Social Engineering!
