Sleazy Business Practice #1,523,047 -- XM Radio

Dec. 20th, 2009 | 02:33 pm

As I was about to renew an satellite radio subscription, I went through the list of fees and found the prices unchanged.  But, as I click through to checkout there's a new line:

U.S. Music Royalty Fee      $21.79.


Huh? 

I cannot buy the satellite radio subscription without this "fee". 

So, how do they get away with claiming one price and then adding in a "fee" later. 
Maybe the subscription should be $0 and then there's a $100 satellite operation "fee", a $25 on-air talent fee, a $30 "cost recovery" fee, ...

Geesh!
