    Does anyone know; I have a XM subscription for another vehicle and if I add on to the subscription "listen through my computer" will I be able to access XM through the internet in the MS or do I need to do it through my phone?

    Thanks everyone!

    No audio support in the browser at this time.

    I cancelled my XM as the internet radio offers more variety and its free (I can even listen to my home town stations)

    I wouldn't bother. There are much higher-quality audio sources available in the S. XM just sounds kind of crappy TBH.

    XM has the most flawed subscription practice ever .... They need to change their model to that of Netflix ... 2 streams max per account, then next tier.

    I always negotiate a deal for 5 months for $20 or something close. Otherwise, a rip off.

    I agree. I had XM in my cars pretty much since their inception. The audio quality is mediocre and the selection is okay. I too switched to the internet radio options and find the audio quality far better and selection is much better as well. Plus, let's face it, why pay for a service that comes free (for now) with the car? I find that the Slacker pretty much plays the same songs as XM did (as I mostly listen to Jazz). Further more, I can listen to what I want anytime by asking Slacker to play it.
