Sirius XM The Tardery Moves on

So ... when I bought my new car Sirius XM came with it. They suck. You have to pay for them AND they come with commercials. Commercials that have nothing to do with the content you are listening to. For example, if you are listening to NHL Radio you WILL get commercials for other channels.  Wait ... what the kimchi ... you get commercials! If I am paying for a channel why the fuck am I getting commercials?!?!?!?

Hell, you get lengthy sports updates for other sports. I have the hockey channel on waiting for updates andf instead I had to listen to 5+ minutes about Golf. If I had wanted  to hear about golf I would have tuned into the golf channel.

On top of that, you have the fact that IF a company had anything to do with you in any way in the last 6 months their call centres can bother you. Which means being on a the No Call list doesn't protect you.

I share a land line phone where I live, in a basement apartment. Sirius Xm's call center, with someone with a distinctly Indian (India Indian) accent  rambled on to the Upper Dwellers about when to contact me. (This after I told them not to bother calling me again repeatedly.) They feigned ignorance.  Upstairs was more polite than I would have been. I would have told him to fuck off. And teh next time they called while I was home I did.

It has been a months since Sirius tried contacting me. (I had actually written this the night of their last call when I told them off. Just getting around to posting it. ;)) Odds are I will get a call from them soon.
