Try XM Satellite Radio For Free
If you have been on the fence about paying for a satellite radio subscription (or if you just like free stuff), you may be pleased to know that XM Satellite Radio is offering a free 3 day trial subscription to anyone interested. The best part? You don't even need a credit card to sign up.
There are a few drawbacks, however. I signed up for the trial to see how the online version worked. First of all, although it's XM Satellite Radio online, know in advance that you will not be getting satellite quality sound. Instead, you will have access to a myriad of station at 33 kbps. In addition, if you are a Firefox fanboy, be prepared to fire up Internet Explorer if you want to use XM Online. Also, you will only have access to 75 XM channels. This is about 50 channels shy of XM's full satellite radio offering.
Still, it's nice to have so many selections available right at your desktop.
