And now they are saying we will no longer be able to listen free on-line in conjunction with our single subscription (which was one of the selling points to us originally).
We cancelled our 2nd unit. We'll probably keep the car subscription since it is still better than our normal OTA radio, but we have changed from enthralled to borderline disenchanted since the merger.
We're in the exact same boat. We loved XM when we first bought it (car unit). Later, we added the home unit. Since the station merge, I can't stand it. The DJs are obnoxious, they play the same songs over and over (can't I get that OTA?), and the playlists are unoriginal.
We also canceled the home unit. We've hung on to the car unit since it's still nice for road trips. If they decide to get aggressive with their rates, it will be an easy decision to dump the car unit as well.
