I knew this was going to happen

So I got an email this morning from XM Sirius. Guess what? They're raising rates and getting rid of free services.

But oh ho you say, they're not allowed to do that per the SEC ruling allowing the merger of XM and Sirius last year. BZZT! Apparently not. They're not raising the main rates, but they are raising the "family plan" rates $2/mo per radio, and eliminating the free online streaming they've had for years now.

This is a total crock. I'd honestly be tempted to cancel if I didn't have the thing integrated into my vehicle.

This kind of thing should be illegal.
