  • Sirius XM Available from the AppStore - Finally


    Sirius/XM Radio on the iPhone.

    You've been asking for it a good long while. uSirius filled the need for a short while but didn't last... and now Sirius has finally stepped up to the table and released an AppStore app for streaming Sirius/XM radio to your iPhone. The app is free if you have an XM or Sirius subscription already (well, if you don't the app is free too - but won't do much, ha).

    Oh, and no, Howard Stern is NOT included.



    SIRIUS XM Radio (Nasdaq: SIRI) today announced the availability of a free application on the Apple App Store that will allow iPhone and iPod touch users to access SIRIUS XM's groundbreaking and critically-acclaimed channels. The app will give SIRIUS and XM Internet subscribers access to 120 channels of sports, talk, entertainment, news, comedy and commercial-free music directly from their iPhone or iPod touch...

    Users of iPhone and iPod touch with an Internet subscription to SIRIUS or XM have access to exclusive sports and entertainment programming from SIRIUS XM's satellite radio service, including, Oprah Radio, MLB Home Plate, Martha Stewart Living Radio, SIRIUS NFL Radio, NHL Home Ice, PGA TOUR, Opie & Anthony, Mad Dog Radio with Chris Russo, Playboy Radio, The Foxxhole comedy channel presented by Jamie Foxx, Blue Collar Comedy Radio, CNN, Fox News Talk and NPR.

    SIRIUS and XM subscribers can also listen to 100% commercial-free music featuring exclusive shows from SIRIUS XM's satellite radio service such as Bob Dylan's Theme Time Radio Hour and Tom Petty's Buried Treasure, as well as 24/7 music channels such as Bruce Springsteen's E Street Radio, The Grateful Dead Channel, Eminem's Shade 45, Jimmy Buffett's Radio Margaritaville, "Little Steven" Van Zandt's Underground Garage and Outlaw Country channels, B.B. King's Bluesville, Willie Nelson's Willie's Place, Elvis Radio, Siriusly Sinatra, Metropolitan Opera Radio and many others.

    Some select programming, including MLB Play-by-Play, NFL Play-by-Play, SIRIUS NASCAR Radio, and Howard Stern, will not be available on the iPhone and iPod touch. Listeners will continue to be able to access that programming through the platforms they are currently offered on.

    Users of iPhone and iPod touch who download the SIRIUS XM app will get access to exclusive, Internet-only showcase channels, such as SIRIUS XM Bootlegs, SIRIUS XM Talk Showcase, SIRIUS XM Music Showcase, and SIRIUS XM Comedy Showcase, featuring multiple plays of SIRIUS XM's acclaimed shows. Exclusive programming from SIRIUS XM's satellite radio service, such as Here's Barbara with Barbara Walters, Oprah Winfrey's Soul Series, The Jamie Foxx Show, specials from Blue Collar Comedy and Raw Dog Comedy, selections from Artist Confidential series, and selections from exclusive live SIRIUS XM music performances, including pop, rock, hip-hop, country, jazz, and more, will be available now for the first time on the iPhone and iPod touch.

    The SIRIUS XM app also allows users to:

    -- Purchase a song heard on SIRIUS XM while it is being played or
    "Tag" favorite songs for later purchase from the iTunes Store.
    -- Save SIRIUS XM Internet channels for fast, easy access through a
    "Favorites" function.
    -- See the current channel plus what is playing on all other available
    channels via the "Lookaround" function.
    -- Quickly surf through 120 channels of SIRIUS XM programming on the fly
    with the flick of a finger using the innovative Multi-Touch user
    interface of iPhone and iPod touch.

    There is no additional charge for listening to SIRIUS XM's programming on the iPhone or iPod touch once a user becomes a SIRIUS XM Internet subscriber or subscribes to the Company's Premium Online service in conjunction with their satellite radio subscription.

    SIRIUS XM will also offer the ability for new users to sample SIRIUS XM Internet content on their computer and iPhone or iPod touch through a free, on-line pass and the opportunity to then become a SIRIUS XM subscriber with a few simple taps.
    AppStore (thanks JazJon)

      I agreed, no Stern, no subscription. The only reason I was going to pay a subscription is because Howard Stern other than that, don't care.

      ronfin44,

      Can you elaborate. I am interested. You can send me a PM if you want.

      Why is free a good deal? I am already paying for my subscription. That sucks. Should I have to pay for a special iPhone subscription? I would rather pay $5 for the app and use my account.

      Pocket Tunes (not Pocket Radio)

      Works great for me. (Howard Stern)

      Here's how:
      Can I play Sirius Satellite Radio on Pocket Tunes Radio?

      Until apps like this can continue to run with the screen turned off I'm not interested. it is a huge waste of battery to leave my phone permanently awake so I can listen to a stream.

      I'd go for it only if online subscription was included in the 140 I've already paid for a year of XM Everything. I can't justify another $3 a month for something I'd rarely use.

      what is the reason for howard stern NOT being available on this app?

      It makes no sense for Sirius to offer an application to PAID subscribers yet not provide all of the channels. I pay for it so I should get it, shouldn't I???????
