this is the audiovox equiptment that I believe comes with everything you need to start listening.

the price is LESS than $140 before a $100 Mail-in rebate.

But with no interest until January 2004 (enough time to receive your rebate) AND free shipping on all products, thatll be about $40.

Am I missing something? Im new to this thing and just learning.

Very possible... I actually got the receiver/antenna for free a month ago (they were running a promotion)...

Basically they'll do whatever it takes to get subscriber #'s up... that's their lifeblood now...

umm, you would also need an antenna, which are ~$40-50?

Yeah, that's about right. Make sure you get an antenna for Sirius, since I think the XM antennas are not compatable.

I got my Audiovox equipment for free, including antenna, from another deal that is no longer. Keep your eyes open, because I'm sure there will be more deals like that from Sirius, who is out to build subscribers with loss-leaders like this. Kinda how DirecTV does things.

If the participant installs and activates their unit prior to 6/16/03,
any programming package can be selected. After 6/16/03, SIRIUS will
activate an annual subscription fee of $142.45 to the credit card
indicated at the time the product order was taken. The regular
