XM Satellite Radio
XM satellite radio services just keep on getting better and better. That’s right, when this awesome radio service first came out the features were rather bland, sometimes limited in scope by the technology that was available at the time. However, as the future has reared its technology-rich head and allowed the creators of XM satellite radio receivers to better an already great interface, many new XM car radios will offer some pretty hopping features.
Features like Artist Watch—where you can track when your favorite bands and artists are playing, what songs they are playing, and what station that it comes on. The same is true for Show Watch, where you are informed of when your favorite shows are playing, and on what channel.
Some XM receivers are now even synching up with GPS units to provide updated Traffic Watch to ease the burden of that lengthy commute you face each morning. And with on-demand news reports, plenty of talk show radio channels and oh so much more, the future is looking brighter than ever, indeed, for XM satellite radio.

XM Satellite Radio
Riding around in the car can be a daily effort for the many of us who are hopelessly trapped in the rat race. That rat race being: get up, get ready, race to work, endure a long commute filled with boredom and the occasional self rant about other drivers, and then do it all again just to get home. Make sure that dinner is made, watch some TV, get ready for bed, and then start it all over again the next day that follows, and so on.
This is where we all stutter briefly and wish there was some differences that existed in the norm and calamity of our everyday existences. It is safe to assume that if we factored all the hours that actually spend inhaling recycled cabin air while driving our cars to and from work, and other places, it may come as a surprise that we spend quite a deal in our cars, and well…quite bored at the same time. But, XM satellite radio has changed all of that, at least for some of us.
To rant on is ubiquitous, but rant I shall. Being such an avid protagonist for anti-boredom, I do present to you, adoringly, with the many reasons why I love car XM satellite radio.
• I first must say that my XM radio installation was cheap, about $50 bucks at the local big place.
• Secondly, XM radio receivers are many these days, and one can easily find one that fits nicely and cozy into their budget, even if it means passing up on the higher end Pioneer Inno XM Receiver and going with a cheaper model with less bells and whistles like the Delphi Roady XT.
• Um, 170 channels of commercial-free music, comedy, news, you-name-it, it’s like having cable TV for the car ride; the car ride most of us spend many waking hours enduring as we go about our everyday lives.
• Finally, XM satellite radio service is cheap these days, and I could not possibly try to find a better way to spend about $3.50 per week, than the hours of entertainment I get while on route to work or other affairs.
To sum it up, life sucks without the internet, cable and XM satellite radio, plain and simple! It’s a necessity, well not really, but still…
