A year ago I puchased a new Ford that came with a trial subscription of Sirius Satellite Radio. I liked it. When the free ride came to an end I could not justify $13 per month cost. Call after call followed from Sirius wanting me to re-up. Magically the monthly rate declined the longer I refused. Eventually getting to about half the original price, so I renewed.
I love the variety of programming, but face it, this is a nice to have. Now comes word that Sirius is looking to increase its monthly rate at a time when it reportedly is facing a slowing new subscription rate and the rise of internet streaming to car audio systems. If I have Pandora, do I need Sirius?
