I disliked sat radio from day 1 because the audio quality was junk, and that's coming from someone that's not exactly an audiophile. Musk says a technology needs to be at least 20% better than existing to overtake it. I preferred FM sound quality over the compression of sat, and HD radio surpassed that, so the 20% threshold was not met.

I'm looking forward to cars not having that stupid "shark fin" antenna. We'll probably invent a reason to keep it, like short range car to car telemetry or something.
