    <p>No! I use SiriusXM both in the car and streaming over Alexa at home. My wife uses Pandora sometimes, though we don’t pay for that one. </p><p><br></p><p>Apple Music’s curated playlists and stations are starting to chip away at our SiriusXM usage but I don’t see us leaving SiriusXM any time soon. They still offer that human, broadcast experience with the DJs that I appreciate. I learn a lot about the artists I listen to through them. </p>

      <p>Maybe it’s just the DJs on the SiriusXM stations I listen to, but I find some of them so obnoxious, I change the channel when I hear them speak. Sorta like regular FM radio. ;)</p>

    <p>Is it that people are moving or is it the press wanting people to think a lot of people are moving? As for me, I use SiriusXM and Apple Music. For some reason, I never really liked Spotify so I picked Apple Music when it was still Beats Music.</p>

    <p>I agree the music curation and the channels lineup really beats out the playlist focused Spotify. Spotify to me kept playing the same stuff so they can keep you on the platform. Music curation is a tough thing and I think thats Sirius really big asset or edge that these algorithm driven services are missing. Not to mention as a music junkie I like the artisit interviews and live specials Sirius does that none of those other services really have.</p>

      <p>Apple Music does a ton of interviews on their Radio stations. Eddie Vedder is on the Zane Lowe Show right now, actually. </p><p><br></p><p>Admittedly, though, I’ve found it easier to find more artist interviews I like from SiriusXM. </p>

    <p>We tried Spotify in the summer, but found it difficult to use and overly complicated, especially when it comes to audiobooks. We were looking at replacing Audible with a combined music and audiobook subscription, but it was absolutely lousy, so we cancelled within the free month.</p>

    <p>I tried YouTube Music, Amazon Music, and YouTube Music. I kept going back to Spotify. For how I like to stream music, I like Spotify the most. I wish they gave more to artists.</p>

    <p>Spotify has the music I want, for the most part. We had SiriusXM, but I never liked any of their radio stations. I like a very wide variety of music, so I don’t usually like any curated music, as it isn’t what I want. I like the Playlist focus on Spotify and have created very large playlists and set them on shuffle. They are missing some artists and some artists albums and songs, but that’s true of any of the music streaming. At least most of them are on Spotify. (This is like movie streaming services, you can’t get all movies on any particular service, and the set of movies will change over time, which is also annoying–as well as not having the full series available at a time).</p>
