If you have a car that came with or installed an aftermarket radio with SiriusXM support but you don’t actively subscribe, here is your chance to preview what SiriusXM has to offer without any cost or effort on your part.
SiriusXM is currently offering free access to SiriusXM through December 3rd (2019) for anyone who has a SiriusXM equipped radio. There is nothing you need to do to take advantage of it. You don’t have to put a credit card down. You won’t be automatically subscribed if you don’t cancel. You simply turn your radio to SiriusXM and you should be connected through December 3rd. If you don’t want it after that, it will deactivate on its own and you’re done. Of course, if you did want to continue, all you have to do is call or contact them online up to find out what specials they are currently running.
It doesn’t stop there though as they are offering free access online to all of their content as well. So if you have an inactive account, it will not be working during this window, including with Amazon Alexa equipped devices. An awesome free trial thrown out there with no effort or risk on your part.
Of course, it seems not everyone has been included this round (this is where the “maybe” steps into the light). The one thing they didn’t catch or mention is that some older radios don’t seem to be seeing the trial. For example, today we tested it out on a few newer car models (2017 and 2018) and SiriusXM popped right up when we accessed it. However, on a 2008 Ford model with a SiriusXM equipped radio, it wouldn’t receive anything but the normal preview/promo station that always plays with various ads on how to signup. So it appears that some people are getting left out of this one, despite their announcement that “Any non-subscriber in the United States can tune in to sample SiriusXM seamlessly”.
At least this is still a great holiday gift that allows you to sample what having a subscription is all about. So turn on your radio and see if you have free SiriusXM, and start listening today. Skip the normal radio commercials and bloat of normal FM radio, and tap into the premium satellite radio experience.
