Default How can I find out if my radio is compatible with best of XM?

Not that I really want it. I have looked on sirius.com's best of xm FAQ and it just says to look at my account page for radio compatibility.

I dont see anything on the page about that? Where is this information?

This is from Sirius.com Best of XM FAQ page...

Will my current SIRIUS radio get The Best of XM?
Most radios will be able to add The Best of XM. Current subscribers should visit the "My Account" section on sirius.com to verify radio compatibility.

Yes it is. All you have to do is go to your account info and click on your radio's esn. Did you ever wonder why the esn is clickable on your account info?...

It will give you your subscription details. The first thing you see that's clickable after that radio's subscription details is Change your package.

Now last time I checked, Change your package isn't some male enhancement product, but if you click on that, You'll see Sirius Everything and an option to get Best of XM. If your radio is like mine, you will not be able to select that. It will say...

This package is not compatible with your current radio.
Otherwise, I think you're good to go...

I don't know for CERTAIN but I think the older JVC pnp will not work, but I don't know for sure.

I have a Stiletto 100 w/ a lifetime subscription. When I click on my ESN, it only gives me an option of paying $150 for the remainder of the "promotional period". It does not let me pay a monthly fee. Is this because I have a lifetime sub? I wouldn't mind trying it for a month or two, but not sure I'm ready to committ to $150, particularly when they are not yet offering MLB baseball with the Best of XM.

The lifetime $150 option seems to be the only one availabe to lifetime subs. Yet there is not lifetime Premium Internet.

I logged into my SIRIUS account to find out that my Brix Streamer is not eligible for the "Best of XM." When your receiver is working great and you have 5 docking stations and a back-up receiver invested, it is hard to justify buying a new radio just to get the Best of XM. I was hoping to save some money by canceling my XM sub.
