  • For those who care about Sirius

    Personally, I don't and have found them to be the most persistently obnoxious spammers I have ever encountered, Ever. https://topclassactions.com/lawsuit-...lls-wont-stop/

    But for those who do care it turns out that 2LT and 3LT owners who were promised a 12-month trial subscription are only getting a 3-month. I got my "welcome to 3-month trial" mail spam today.

    I expect the daily phone calls to start when that expires if not before. Truecaller is my friend.

    edit. Possibly this only applies to Canadians. Poor us.

      Welcome to your 3 month trial email is not spam. And I'm quite confused as I've been using Sirus/XM for over 15 years and I don't get emails or phone calls from them.

          Try not using them and see what happens. Did you read my link? My experience exactly.

            I just read the link and by all means if that's happening there needs to be a class action law suit to put a stop to it. Its unfortunate that a lot of marketing campaigns from well known companies these days seem to ignore the law and not care until a group of people files a suit.

              I was an XM subscriber for a long time before the merger. I chose XM over Sirius for a reason. After the merge, they turned into Sirius, and then got progressively worse. XM was a great place to find new artists. Sirius has 6 or 8 stations for every popular genre that play the same cr*p over and over, but almost no place to find unknown artists or less popular genres. And they've crammed so many channels into their bandwidth sound quality is worse than low bitrate mp3s. I won't even bother to activate my free trial.

                For the last 5 years I pay only $5 per month for Sirius radio and I think that’s what it’s worth

                  I got the same mail for both C7s, which both came with a 12-month subscription despite what the mailer said. The message is not focused on your particular vehicle, it’s just a generic mailer, probably because the vast majority of manufacturer subscriptions are only for three months and they don’t want to have two different mailers.

                      I don't care about Sirius. The only sound I need is the NPP of a V8. And, there is no subscription.

                        You could be right. I guess I'll see what happens as the 3-month mark comes up.

                        On a related topic, it's only been 2 weeks and I've already had 2 begging emails from OnStar wanting to give me 2 months "free". (Just give us a CC # they say).

                          Most of these emails have an unsubscribe option at the bottom.

                            On the C7 I recall that Canadian orders 2LT/3LT only got 3 months while US orders got 12. Maybe C8 is the same?

                              I get emails multiple times a week from Sirius. I do like the variety since I drive a lot in “regular” vehicles, but yes personally get lots of junk mail from them to reactivate past accounts. Not a big deal to me
