I have a lifetime subscirption to Sirius and am a huge Howard Stern fan. In my previous cars, I installed the car kit myself, and I took the radio with me into the house. With XM installed already on the CT, it saved me the trouble of installing it again, and it's a much neater solution. Since the merger, XM and Sirius programming is identical, except for a handful of channels on each, which they dub "Best of."
Alas, while the programming is merged, the accounts aren't (yet), so when I called XM to ask if I could add my car unit as a second radio, they said no. I then asked if I could add the "Best of Sirius" to the free trial, and they said yes, and for only $10 for all three months! Of course I said yes, and now enjoy Howard in my Crosstour!
If he re-signs his contract, then I will keep the XM subscription going. If he doesn't, I will for sure drop the Best of Sirius and maybe the whole thing, depending on the deal I can get.
And, finally...Baba Booey to ya'll!
