This is great if you are thinking of getting XM for your home or car, as it lets you listen to 75 Stations, including a few online-only stations. It does not include news/sports stations for some reason, but it includes most if not all of the music stations, and the comedy stations.

If you are an XM subscriber, its 3.99 to add online-play to your account, and if you are not a subscriber, its 7.99.

Either way, its a good way to get some good tunes at work. :thumb:

Cool.

For those concerned, they only ask for an email address which they use to send a confirmation email, and there are opt-out boxes that would appear to reduce or eliminate spam.

No CC or additional contact information is required.

Yeah. Potentially, you could get free XM forever if you had an infinite amount of email addresses.

I just got XM for Christmas, did a lot of research to decide which was the better of the 2. Sirius does have NFL but I figured since I have the Sunday Ticket I have no need for that. XM has OPIE & Anthony and they are Freakin HILLARIOUS!!!! Also I get to listen to the Cubbies all summer. I would recomend to anyone getting XM to buy the portable radio called a MYFI, made by Delphi electronics. It has attacments so you can hook it up in the car, House, or use it as a walkman which is also good for bike riding. AWSOME I LOVE IT....

Spending the day at work listening to XM Comedy is quality stuff.

I've never even heard of Steve McGrew before, but I like his excessive use of the f-word.
