Lots of Changes in the World of TSS and SiriusXM

When it rains it pours. And now is one of those times, and it’s all positive.

In the past month we launched our new revamped website here at TSS-Radio. It was a tremendous amount of work and we are pleased with the overall result. We feel the website is easier to navigate and have heard that from customers as well. We’ve also added some new features such as now offering Paypal as a payment option and less expensive shipping options to Canada. One of the bigger advantages to our new website is that we have streamlined our offerings. In the past we carried every single accessory or part for Satellite Radio, which at the time was great, but we’ve changed our outlook and here’s why. We used to offer 4 different kits to Integrate Sirius into a Toyota and some of the kits worked better than others and had varying amounts of technical support from the manufacturers and us. It was redundant and overly complicated to find something simple. Our new approach is focused on the best of those products and helping you find them easier. And the important thing to remember is if you ever have trouble finding something we can always be reached by phone, 312-846-6606 or email sales@tss-radio.com

There also has been a lot going on at SiriusXM. Liberty Media has officially taken over majority control of SiriusXM. We feel that long run this will be a good thing. They will take the good things that Management has done and keep those and make changes to things that they feel will improve the company. For great info about all Liberty Media and the financial happenings of SiriusXM I always refer people to SiriusBuzz where they are experts as the subject and are more versed in it than myself.

One of the big changes at SiriusXM is that they have finally Merged the Billing. In the past if you had an XM Radio in your Car and bought a Sirius Radio for your home you would have to have two separate accounts that you paid full price for both. You couldn’t simply add the Sirius radio to your XM account. Now you can. And it’s explained more in depth within this thread on DRC.

The second big change is something I’m extremely excited about as well as many others. If you weren’t impressed enough with the fact that SiriusXM have an On Demand listening feature in which you can listen to shows on your time schedule and without commercials, than perhaps this new service will impress you. It’s called MyControl and it allows you to fine tune many of the stations you’ve loved listening to on the Satellite Radio spectrum. MyControl is SiriusXM’s take on Personalized Radio. And what’s so great about it is that the interface is simple and the service is tweaked the moment you take control. You don’t have to wait many songs deep before the service caters to your needs. If you enjoyed the 80s on 8 channel but didn’t like the Hits so much as the deeper tracks from the 80s, now you can tune out the hits and focus on the niche songs. DRC has a thread on MyControl for SiriusXM here. And SiriusBuzz did a story about it here.

Hopefully all the positive changes keep on this path!
