I got a letter in the mail last week letting me know that my Sirius/XM radio was being reactivated for two weeks for free starting today and running through Monday, August 8.
That's pretty cool. Free is always good.
After the trial period, I can opt to sign up for five months of service for $20.
I have no idea if this is for all currently unsubscribed Sirius/XM users. But, if you are one, it cannot hurt to flip on your radio today and see if it suddenly has life again. If it works, thank me later.
While I'm excited to listen to the satellite radio service again, I'm not sure I'll sign up. I've really been enjoying listening to Audible lately. I'm afraid that having another option will cut into my audiobook time. With a book as hefty as George R.R. Martin's A Dance With Dragons, every minute of listen time counts.
So, sure, I'll listen here and there but not as much as I would have if it was three months ago. Before I started listening to books.
Maybe this is an opportunity that will pay off more for one of you than for me. Give it a go.
