Sirius Satellite Radio Complaint - Don't subscribe
After buying a car equipped with ability to get satellite radio, I got bombarded with mail and phone calls advising me that I had a trial subscription. I tried to use it and found that I had 3 channels, all promotional. I don't drive all that much, so ignored it. Then I got a phone call asking for a subscription. I told them I wasn't all that interested and really didn't get to try the system. I got a promotional rate of $7+ a month if I provided a credit card for 6 months. I consented and gave them the card. I couldn't get service (in a large metropolitan area) and called and emailed for weeks. On two occasions I drove for an hour or so trying to get the satellites to track. Finally one day I got service and I must say there were some interesting channels. A day or two later the service was gone, and I couldn't get it and decided to give up. Mind you I paid by credit card for 6 months. Then I get collection letters and threats to suspend service. I call them and ask what's going on and get people who are real idiots, one of whom tells me I need to reset the satellite reception every day due to my location! I say when I did that it took me an hour and my drive is like 15 minutes, and I got the rudest answer, causing me to officially terminate. I can't tell the difference between terminate and not terminate as I had no service anyway. Well, they are trying to get $14 out of me with endless statements and phone calls while I am driving. The people who call are kids, who follow a script, trying to talk sense is like talking to a wall. I cannot see how this company can succeed. I guess I'm glad that they lost my credit card as I am sure I would be getting billed forever. Unless you love the service and get consistently good reception, don't bother with this company.
