Thread: Pocket Tunes Radio Plays Sirius XM on iPhone

  1. #21
    sirius just raised their prices for online streaming @ 128K. Also, pocket tunes seems promising, but it just doesn't cut it with Siruis' web stream, any little hiccup with your 3G connection and you get buffering; EDGE forget it, you need Wifi or be standing next to a cell tower with more than full 3G to enjoy listening without frequent stops and buffering. (it looks like its more the software+web issue, because only sirius seems to have the constant buffering, other internet radio is okay, although I've been hard pressed to find a 128K stream. (by the way, i got the same "buffering" when i changed my sirius stream down to 32Kbps - if it can't play 32Kbps on 3G smoothly, then I dunno what it's good for.)

    so...if there is a way to rip off sirius, I'd like to know. Because with them shutting down Starplayr, raising prices, and never delivering on their own iPhone app, **** em.

    I don't have buffering issues whatsoever on 3g. Not sure what your issue is. Only lose it when i get a phone call and have to restart the app and stream. Considering it is the only option out there for sirius.. im loving it

    Just wanted to update everyone on rumors circulating about an iPhone Sirius app.

    From SiriusXMnews.com:

    "Look for an official announcement from Sirius XM Radio on May 11th about their new iPhone app.

    Not sure if it will be released that day but there might be a good chance.

    That is all for now. If I find out more I will post it up.

    PS: Right now this is a rumor, I will confirm when I can."
