SiriusXM: FREE Satellite Radio w/ Subscription! *BUMP!*
*Bump! Sirius XM has this deal on again, so you might want to check it out.* SiriusXM Canada is making it easier to get into their service by offering free devices!
One of the biggest inhibitors to adoption of new services is a need for new equipment. If you want eBooks, you need an eReader. If you want satellite radio stations, you need a satellite radio. SiriusXM is offering you the chance to get beyond that initial cost by offering FREE radios when you sign up for a subscription. The length of the subscription depends on the radio you are getting. Some of the better radios aren't free but rather discounted so if you want the super high end stuff, you may have to pay a bit.
I have SiriusXM built into my truck but I've never used it. It doesn't hold a huge amount of interest for me but there are two guys who I work with that absolutely swear by it. One guy is borderline obsessed, I think. I guess it all comes down to what you need. I listen to about 17 hours of pod casts a week and I am always listening to audio books so I don't need SiriusXM. Check out the SiriusXM channel list, I'm sure there will be a lot for you to listen to.
