Thanks for the heads up. Got it!

Weve subscribed to Sirius/XM for at least 15 years and have always declined the required up charge for streaming. Weve licensed the service in 3 vehicles now including our Thor A.C.E. Our 11 yo GMC Yukon has the no longer offered lifetime all channel subscription. I figure were ahead of the game on that one.

Brain fart for sure...I remember them telling me that recently when we renewed. Just bought a new golf cart and had stereo system installed. I was thinking last night how nice it would be to have that service but the amount of time we would use it wouldn't be worth the price...boom! Thanks for that reminder!!

I contacted Sirius/XM and asked about any up charge. All 3 of my licenses are "Select" licenses and streaming is included. On their web site, there is a note that streaming is $5/mo. I would guess that a 3 yr $99 license may not fall into that "Select" category but you probably need to confirm that with them.

Incidentally, to begin using the app, I had to log in with my Sirius/XM ID and password but, there was no verbiage regarding an additional fee.

I've always been a bit miffed that my annual fees weren't enough to allow occasional streaming. I can relax now.

I just signed up for the streaming APP service, 3 months at $0, and you can cancel before then for no charge. I just wish it had the TUNEMIX feature where you can listen to a mix of ALL of your favorite CHRISTMAS channels while you drive the 12 hours to the beach!

Happy CHRISTmas : )

Doesn't live streaming chew up your phone data limits? I'm techno challenged & (perhaps unfounded) fear of phone fees has prevented me from using that Sirius option in the past. Thanks for insights.

Thanks RevJeffrey. Usually in state & national parks, as well as many miles of back roads driving to get to campgrounds & trails, I have no cell service, yet the satellite signal still comes thru to my Sirius radio receiver. Seems like I would lose that if I dropped the subscription on my 2nd vehicle (motorhome) & added internet radio service with my primary vehicle's subscription. Have I missed something?

So I use Pandora when traveling, it’s free as long as you don’t mind a few commercials.

Your first radio HAS THE APP. SERICE. You could save $$ by...canceling second subscription (motorhome) using SIRIUS APP. on your phone and connect to dash radio or other Bluetooth or hardwired in motorhome. Would only work with cell service. Depending on how much you use the motorhome in remote areas would be the only issue. The offer I am on now is $4.99 per month includes stations and 100/101 and app. I hope this helps.

A "few" commercials? I used to stream Pandora all the time. Recently I was out of the country and could not stream Pandora but I could Amazon Prime music since I already had the Prime account. Just as good a selection as Pandora and ZERO commercials. I didn't realize had bad Pandora was until I switched. Pandora app isn't even on my phone anymore.

I have 2 portable XM Sirius radios (Onyx) with a docking station in the motorhome, boat, two cars and my desk in the sticks & bricks house. 2 subscriptions serves 5 locations. That along with the on-line option and I'm never out of Sirius radio range.

XM Sirius is geo blocked though and this became a problem when I was working in the South Pacific for a couple of years but I found that a VPN would make it look like I was in San Francisco and allow streaming. In most South Pacific Countries, you pay for phone data by the gigabit so I can attest that XM Sirius is easy on the data.
