With the merger well underway, Sirius and XM Radio have announced price increases.
If you love your Sirius or XM satellite service, now is the time to re-up your subscription for another three years. The newly unified Sirius XM is charging $2 for additional subscriptions and adding another $2.99 fee for Internet radio.
It’s fair to note they have held the line on increased over the past few years and a nominal increase is fully reasonable. But would it occur in a competetive market? Probably not.
And is this really the time to be raising prices? I’ve already let my Sirius subscription expire for a while as a cost savings measure. I’m sure I’m not alone. I love the service, but when belt tightening, it’s something that I can live without.
