I'd have to listen to the content and judge the audio quality before I'd sign a long-term contract. I currently get DMX as part of my digital cable package, and I'm not impressed with it. Of the 40+ channels of music it offers, maybe 5 interest me (most of it is crap). The one aspect of digital satellite broadcasting that may be a boon, however, is the car reception. One of the satellite broadcasting companies that is getting started in the Seattle area will have a system that allows you to receive broadcasts in your car and home, which may make it worthwhile. I'm not going to rush out and plunk down a lot of money, however, until it's proven. I've waited a long time for satellite digital TV to come down in price and offer the choices I wanted (such as local stations), and I'm quite content to wait a couple of years to see how digital radio performs.
