II couldn't quite tell if it was internet only, or if it could pick up satellite signal too.
Going by the second image I would say both sources, there is a WiFi, satellite, and BlueFang indicator. Internet will augment content, and give them access to our listening habits while on the road, in exchange for more content choice (maybe) and replay options.

I think that they were streamlining their offerings down to only a few options.
It shouldn't be any time soon that they would transition to internet only.

I agree, people still want to use these. Hell I'm one of them. The app works great but I miss the radio just being a radio and my phone not being my radio.

I've been using the app on my computer at my new job, because I'm not close enough to a good window to use an antenna, and it's been working out nicely.
But I don't want to use my phone at work or in my car anyway. So having a decent (even if it's simple) radio is great by me.

I like the satrad in the car being integrated. App or Alexa anywhere else.

I do too, but I’m too cheap to get a second subscription in multiple places. The app has come a long way in the last couple of years to help take care of that though.

We have the satrad in the weekend car, and I use the phone app in my daily commuter. It's interesting how each has pros and cons. The radio is a no-brainer. But in my car, I have the bluetooth auto connect, and I dock my phone anyway, so it's not much of a bother. The app lets me start at the beginning of songs or shows, and it buffers like 6 hours of content. The radio can't do that.
