    Do you have the 2.99/mo Internet Radio?

    I have the lifetime free radio and the app says that a Premium subscription is required.

    i'm interested in Bloomberg Radio and Hot 97. i'll be trying -

    1. RadioTime
    2. XiiaLive (formerly DroidLive)
    3. YourMuze.fm
    4. Android Online Radio MMS
    5. StreamFurious

    i would like -

    1. background play
    2. direct streaming from station to device (no middle servers or logins to deal with)
    3. quality output (consistent, loud/clear volume, no buffering)

    thoughts?
    I've used/am using YourMuze & RadioTime and like both. YourMuze is through the browser, so not truly background but it does work. RadioTime can background (notif bar). Both offer direct streaming. Quality really is dependent on your connection and the station's stream, but both stream nicely on a good connection.

    The choices on RadioTime are endless it seems.

    I can't comment on the other apps. XiiaLive looks interesting.

    Smartphones costing them money too?
    Why would anyone pay for that service when we get free music with Pandora, music of choice with Pandora.
    Did I say for free?

    the $3/month is the best $3 per month I spend on my XM Mobile (well, when I had my BB) - can't wait to get my Incredible and re-sign up!

    Opie and Anthony during my hour long train ride each day makes it well worth it.

    Everytime I try to look up prices it tries to get me to sign up. I don't have my android device yet!

    How much is the price for Sirius/XM on a mobile device if you don't have Sirius/Xm service otherwise?

    Just having a smartphone would made that ride more enjoyable.
    Why you say 3 dollars a month and others say 12?
    3 dollars for a second device or 3 dollars because its on a smartphone.
    Does it use your phones satellite signal or it works over the internet?

    It's $3 if you subscribe to an existing and qualifying SirusXM plan (see link I posted above). $12.95 if you do not subscribe already.

    $3 dollars extra for streaming if you already have a regular radio sub which is $12 if you go monthly. it's cheaper if you do the 3yr plan. personally love it in the car.

    Jcant wait. waiting for this app so i dont need my xm unit in the car anymore. gonna be awesome. the only downer so far is that it seems that the sports play-by-play channels arent available on the app though; ill know for sure later

    EDIT: so yeah, only the "main" sports channels (mlb home plate, nhl home ice, etc) are available, which stinks, but since I only follow my hometown teams anyway, its not a dealbreaker.

    And FOX NEWS CHANNEL is not available. And fox news and fox talk are two separate things. Just like CNN and CNNhln are 2 different channels

    No Stern, people need to send Howard some emails. It's not Sirius that is blocking it.

    Stern isn't going to allow streaming of his show to ANY phone. At least that is what I heard on his show.
    I hope they dump stern!

    If it weren't for Stern, satellite radio wouldn't have anywhere close to the subscriber base they have now. They're actually making a profit now for the first time. The numbers don't lie.

    I listen to Stern everyday, and it's definitely the case that he has blocked the show from being played on other devices -- probably because he couldn't get a good deal with it. So some kind of workaround would have to be done. Of course, his 5 year contract is over this December, so he could be moving to some form of internet radio, if he doesn't get a good deal with Sirius. Maybe there would be an app for that.

    I like the app, but it's hit or miss. It has a bad habit of getting stuck in a loop or just crapping out, even with great signal and even on wifi. If there was a way to have the app buffer out more, maybe that would help, but I don't use it as much as I'd love to just because it ends up pissing me off more often than not.
