Subscribers to the SiriusXM satellite radio service will be super stoked about a number of massive upgrades that they have offered their audience. Dig into the full press release that we recently received.
The Press Release:
SiriusXM announced today that 30 million subscribers now have access to the world’s best audio entertainment in more places than ever before. SiriusXM Select subscribers now join SiriusXM All Access, SiriusXM Essential Streaming and SiriusXM Premier Streaming subscribers with unlimited streaming access to the hundreds of SiriusXM music, sports, talk, news and entertainment channels, at no additional cost, outside the car on a phone, at home, and online.
With this new access to streaming, SiriusXM Select customers will also get access to over 100 recently launched Xtra Music Channels curated across genres and eras for any mood, occasion or activity. This coincides with an expanded preview of SiriusXM Video that unlocks more from SiriusXM’s On Demand Archive. Subscribers can see hundreds of videos including in-studio performances, behind-the-scenes moments, and more.
Subscribers to the SiriusXM All Access and SiriusXM Premier Streaming packages will now be able to create their own customized commercial-free music stations within the SiriusXM app. With the launch of these Personalized Stations Powered by Pandora, SiriusXM listeners can get a truly unique combination of rich music curation and industry-leading personalization not found in any other audio entertainment service. These Personalized Stations Powered by Pandora will employ Pandora’s unrivaled listener personalization technology, driven by its pioneering Music Genome Project. The Stations will draw from SiriusXM’s vast music library and be served through SiriusXM’s delivery infrastructure.
“We have always been dedicated to delivering our customers great value for their subscriptions, and we have achieved remarkable growth and listener loyalty by delivering unrivaled and exclusive content in an easy-to-use way. These new initiatives represent another tremendous step forward in that effort, and give our customers more value for their money than ever before,” said Jennifer Witz, SiriusXM’s President, Sales, Marketing and Operations. “Tens of millions of SiriusXM Select subscribers now get access to SiriusXM outside the car, and the many benefits of the SiriusXM app, at no additional cost. We are also especially proud that only six months after completing the merger with Pandora, our teams have brought unique music personalization to the SiriusXM app using Pandora’s industry-leading technology for our millions of All Access and Premier Streaming customers.”
Personalized Stations Powered by Pandora deliver SiriusXM subscribers much of the unique functionality that Pandora listeners love most. Within the SiriusXM app subscribers can create their own commercial-free music stations based on the artist or song they are listening to at that moment, or by searching for their favorite artists. In the SiriusXM service, subscribers can then give songs a thumbs up or thumbs down, or even skip songs, to create their own personal channel that plays more of what they want based on their unique tastes.
SiriusXM Video Preview: More exclusive video content is now available to SiriusXM subscribers on the SiriusXM app and web player, featuring memorable performances and interviews from the archive, including artists and newsmakers such as Kevin Hart, Cardi B, Jonas Brothers, P!NK, Khalid, Florida Georgia Line, Tim McGraw, Blake Shelton, Reba McEntire, Lady Antebellum, BTS, George Clooney, Tracy Morgan, Chelsea Handler, Ryan Reynolds, KISS, Halsey, Bruno Mars, Brooks Koepka and Dale Earnhardt Jr. Plus, new videos are being added regularly. This marks the next step in SiriusXM’s video offering, following the debut of video from The Howard Stern Show last year, with more to come from other SiriusXM personalities this fall, including Jenny McCarthy, Michelle Collins, Chris “Mad Dog” Russo, Jeff Lewis, Emily Morse, Jim Norton & Sam Roberts, Jason Ellis, Karen Hunter and others.

Piercing Ken Thoughts: This sure does sound like some awesome news. Of course I should admit that at this time my only exposure to the SiriusXM service is when I am riding to places with my friends who have it or when I’m covering some of the exciting events that they invite my PiercingMetal outlet to. So as I close this announcement up I wonder what you subscribers think about the news and if you are someone who doesn’t have it yet like myself, does this spark your interest just a little bit more? Chime in down below in the comments and we shall see you right here again soon. Take care.
