Satellite Radio

Although listening to satellite radio typically necessitates the installation of a special radio in your home or car, you also have the option of listening right from your computer. Whether you’re already a member looking to set up your free online account, or you’re trying to decide if satellite radio is for you, the sites below show you how to choose and where to get started.

Dulcinea's Insight

  • If you plan on using satellite for regular radio listening, both XM and SIRIUS Satellite Radio offer discounts when you sign up for longer periods of time. Since you’ll need to purchase a special radio to hear stations anyway, you’ve made a commitment. Explore the plan that will save you the most money.
  • Both stations allow you to sample the product for free. Use this time to compare the programming to other free radio available on the Web before you make an expensive purchase.
  • If you’re already a subscriber, you can listen online for free. You may need to set up an online account first, as you’ll be asked to log in.
  • One of the advantages of satellite radio is the convenience factor. While it’s true that you can find a lot of free stations and programming online, you may have to go through multiple steps for streaming and downloading, or put up with a lower-quality product. You also won’t see any ads.
