  • [ COMING SOON ] StarPlayr: Sirius/XM on the iPhone


    Sirius/XM is not quite a stranger to the iPhone - uSirius was released back in June of 08 to jailbroken users, and worked... and was buggy at best. The app was released by Millard Software, whose namesake Jason Millard is now teamed up with the folks at StarPlayr to release a prettied up, completely revamped, AppStore Sirius/XM app under the StarPlayr name. It should hit sometime this month.



    The app had been mentioned throughout the web a few times in late 08 as a possibility, but has now been released in private beta. The app works with the Sirius/XM internet feed, and most (but not all - yup, Stern is there, but no live sports, strangely except for Notre Dame College Football games) of their channels are available through it. The app streams over WiFi (I saw no indication it would work with 3G yet EDIT: seems forum posters here and at NiceMac are saying it works over 3G) at 128 kbps and features lyrics as well as album art in app.

    You'll need a subscription to XM/Sirius online to listen (which is $7.99/month). No word yet on pricing, but the Windows Mobile version of their app sells for $9.99.



    thanks Jon for emailing us the tip!

      The online content is the same content thats on the radio at that time. They do not however have ALL the channels. They do have most.

      My stepdad has a Sirius account. So I'm assuming I can use his account username/password to stream to my iPhone thus having no cost to me. That would be awesome. I miss stern.

      I think the Stern/Sirius is a little over played. I mean sure he's started a revolution with the satellite radio but what the heck is he doing with 2, I say, 2 Howard Stern channels? - I don't even know when it's live and when its not, thus, I am turned off and would rather find some good music that I would never find on the FM Airwaves.

      I've been absent from the Sirius for a few months and it looks like the XM Merger has taken place faster then I had hoped. I'd like to know what happened to my fav #1 channel #26 Left of Center?? It seems to have taken the merger plunge to "SIRIUS U" - so lame sounding!

      ... Is it the same program direction as Left of Center was? If it's because not enough people listened to it and they needed a new look I think that's SILLY! It's the listener's own fault for not ... tuning (???) in ?

      ... So as you can see how passionate I am towards certain Sirius material I am very excite for this App to come out.

      Sirius U better be on there...

      Howard needs 2 channels because of all of the content he has. He has his live shows, replays, master tape theatre, and other shows on 100 and on 101 he has Ferall, Bubba, Jay Thomas, and other smaller shows. His live shows have a calling link, "Join the Revolution" or something like that scrolling, everything else has a date scrolling. Also, with the merger, here is the situation with the channels. brooklynvegan: Left of Center + XMU = Sirius XMU (Sirius + XM = Sirius XM)

      I was anxiously awaiting this app also, until I found out that Sirius is going to make us pay for online listening after March.

      $2.99/month on top of your regular sub rate.

      I am only assuming this is how the app gets it's feed.

      yup... pretty crappy. I might just get a dock instead now... there's no way I'm paying an extra 3.00 a month for it

      What would a dock achieve? You still have to pay to listen online to this..Maybe I am reading this wrong but it wouldn't help to get a dock. Also If you guys subscribe before March you can lock your free online streaming for the duration of your current subscription. Thats what I'm going to do.

      I seriously cant wait. The app was finally submitted to Apple and is awaiting for approval. Once it's past it will be the best $12.99 I have ever spent in my life!

      I think by Dock he means a stereo to plug in his Stilleto into? Correct me if Im wrong, but that is the only way he would get rid of the online fees...

      unless he means that original dock that comes with the radio. just one that he can plug in at his house or in his car. maybe.. dont know.
