On our PMV to St. Croix, it seemed that most radio stations I picked up were 70's-80's style music, reggae, or Christian. We didn't seem to have much luck with a good country music station or current top 40. Is this truly the case or did I just not know where to turn the dial? Also, has anyone had any luck with satellite radio (Sirius, for example)? Thanks, Denise
I am planning to move down soon and I have XM satellite radio. I know that you have to have a mainland US billing address to have xm (or so i've heard.) I was wondering if my xm would work down there if I brought it and kept an address stateside just for billing. Can anyone help?
I have used Musicmatch Jukebox radio subscription service (CD quality) for over a year now which is accessed thru the internet. The variety and selection has been outstanding and I plan to keep my subscription running after I relocate to STX. I think I paid something like $60 for the subscription for a year. All I need is a high speed connection....
XM and Sirius do not have coverage in the Caribbean, yet.
i gotta say this...i love "classic rock" and i hear BETTER music down here on stx (on mongoose) than up there (states)...many of the down islanders love country, but i don't think there's much on the air...get an iPOD and do your own thing!
I got XM back in the states and have a year subscription which will run out in October. I don't have XM in my car here, but with the subscription I can get XM online. You should be able to get a password online. You won't be able to listen in the car but if you have internet access then you're in luck. Hope this helps.
Do DirecTv Satellites work down there?
Satellite radio does not work down here, but you can access Sirius through your TV if you have a satellite dish. I listen to Sirius on my TV all the time! Of course, this wouldn't help if you need to listen to it while driving. For top-40 stuff, try 95.1, 105.3 and 106.9 (a station in Puerto Rico).
No DirecTV in the VI; it's not licensed for sale here as yet.
Puerto Rico has it but its a different satellite dish than those in the states and a different access card as far as I understand.
Dish Network is here.
