You can either plug a network cable into the back, or it can connect to a WiFi signal. Not good for in-car use, obviously, but great for the home.

ER, for all intents and purposes. Part-time income <5% of annual expenditure.

I listen almost exclusively to SiriusXM in my car. There are several channels that I really like. I spend quite a bit if time in my car, and always have it on. Plus it's great on long trips, because I don't have to constantly hunt for new stations all of the time.....just 'set it & forget it'. (I also have a Sirius 'BoomBox' out in my workshop, with an externally mounted antenna, that is on whenever I'm out there. And we have the SiriusXM music channels with DishNetwork in the house.)

In my pickup truck, I listen to our local AM and FM stations, as well as WSM 650-AM out of Nashville in the evenings (although Nashville is 500 miles away from here, WSM comes in crystal clear from about 5:00pm to about 6:00am).

On a few occasions I'll plug a patch cord into my iPhone, and listen to my downloaded music in both the car and truck.

SiriusXM was preinstalled in my car when I bought it but after one year I cancelled the subscription because I am too cheap to pay for it. I reckon there are enough options without having to fiddle with internet radio.

No since it uses to much of my bandwidth and slows down my streaming videos that I watch while driving.
Not funny. I have a buddy that does this and we call him out and he refuses to change. We were going on a camping trip and he asked if I mind if he watched Netflix while he drove. I said that I did mind and I would drive for him if he wanted to watch Netflix that bad, so I drove. He has dual citizenship and he had a buddy with him that didn't have a US drivers license and when we all hung out he brought up the watching video while driving. We told him we though he was better off driving without a license then riding with someone not fully paying attention to driving.

We bought a used LEXUS SUV last Feb, that happened to have a SIRIUS radio in it. We never turned it on as we assumed the service had been disconnected. In the fall we heard about a two week free promo with SIRIUS so we turned it on and enjoyed it. Well about 4 months later we still are enjoying it. We can only figure that the previous owner had paid for the life time of the vehicle service plan.
