Limited Sirius Channels

Hey guys - My Lusso came with a full-year Sirius trial, but only had about 2/3 of the channels. I just did a 6-month subscription renewal for full access and still can’t get past the 200’s in the channel list. A call to Sirius shows I have full channel access and a refresh doesn’t help.
Any thoughts? Is this something the dealer can fix?

Our receivers are older technology and don't have the capability for a lot of the upper channels. My wife's Hyundai gets them all.

Mine just expired. $20.99/mth to renew? No thanks. I only listened to about four channels anyway. Now I wish I didn't have the shark fin on the boot.

You can do the mostly music plan for $9. The $21 is for everything and internet access also.

Don't have it on my Fiat and don't miss it. Anything I want I can do through apps on my phone / CarPlay. Haven't carried a subscription on my other cars for a few years now.

She's winterized for 5 .5 months plus I were to commute highways then would be interesting. But I listen mainly local stations. So thanks, but no thanks

My problem is out here you lose data and even cell phone signal just getting a couple miles away from Grand Junction. Too many canyons and elevation change. I do enjoy streaming Pandora for the 10 minutes it works though.

You most likely can call them and get All Access for 8.99 a month. Usually it’s for 3 or 6 months, but if you call to cancel after this ‘offer’ they usually renew it for another 6.

Every 6 months I'd call them to renew my "promotional offer", for 5 years I did this.
Me- $5.00 per month.
Sirius- We can't do that. $19/month.
Me- $5.00 per month.
Sirius- We can't do that. We'll give you a year for (way too much).
Me- $5.00 per month.
Sirius- Sir...
Me- send me to the next level of customer service.
Sirius, next level- $19.00 per month.
Me- I'll tell you what. Your satellite is sending the signal to my radio regardless of subscribing or not. Do you want $5.00 per month from me, or nothing per month from me? Because frankly, for the 4 stations I listen to, that's about all you're worth.
Sirius- <Sigh> We can offer $5.50 per month for 6 months.
Me- Sold, I'll talk to you again in 6 months, we'll do it all over again.

Dumped them 2 years ago in our other car (afterward for another 6 months they bribed me at $5/month to get me back, had to threaten legal action to get them to stop contacting me), my Classica does not have satellite access. Now I've got about 3500 songs loaded onto USB chips plugged into each car.

I upgraded my Pandora subscription to allow me to download 'offline' channels - if I lose connectivity, it switches to a downloaded channel.
