SiriusXM planning Android devices

7 Comments

I used to be a XM subscriber for about 4years. I liked it, but it seems kind of a waste now that I can stream music with Pandora/Slacker and find live sporting events with TuneIn Radio.

I don't know if they could get me to come back for any reduced subscription fee.

Granted you can get a variety of music through Pandora/Slacker/Grooveshark etc etc.... there are so many ways now. For me, I stick with Sirius for Howard and Farrel, now there are illegal ways to get these shows without paying for it but I find that each is worth every cent that I pay. The specialty programming that they offer trumps what you can find elsewhere. Plus it is great to hear people speak their minds and not feel censored by the FCC. To each their own I guess.

I wonder if it will work better than the app... first it took them nearly 2 months to update for froyo so those without rooted devices couldn't listen to more than 2 minutes before the stream kept repeating... then an update comes a few months later, and the service cuts out constantly, the feed just drops out, can't just reload the channel, i had to quit the app, restart it and hope that it didnt do it again.. after 2 months of that i just cancelled my sirius sub, I was a subscriber for over 5 years, their software team needs to really up their game.

This happened on a OG Droid running Stock Froyo, Bugless Beast and CM7, both 3g and wifi, that app is terrible, not to mention all of the Evo users out there who dont get any love unless they are on wifi. I love my Opie and Anthony but im not wasting money again on it.

Seriously? The current Android app doesn't even have landscape mode! Yeah, that looks great in my car dock! I've been an XM sub for ten years, and while I like the service (used to love it before the merger) their technology and innovation blows.
