When making the selection of XM vs. Sirius, there are several things to consider. The cost of the equipment is comparable, but the price of the subscription and certain exclusive programming may make the decision for you.
There is no longer a difference in the price of the basic monthly subscriptions. XM Radio and Sirius charge $12.95/month. Both have similar activation fees and discounts for longer-term purchases.
