Not bad
by Willmatic78 on 2020/08/11 15:59
I don’t like how the show reminders stop working after two weeks. Regardless if you have it set or not.
Robot
by Phil Frakes on 2020/08/11 12:45
You must have robots sitting around putting in 5 stars to get your rating this high because your app is terrible I have an iPhone 11 Pro and all I get is trying to connect all day every day it’s junk and I will not renew my subscription so don’t be mailing me all you so called deals. When you fix your crap I’ll come back.
APP is Garbage
by Frank1076 on 2020/08/10 21:47
It will either try to connect or buffer so bad that it’s unusable. I tried all the troubleshooting like reinstalling and turning my phone of and on. Tried it on WiFi and cell. Just doesn’t work. I did a little research online and found that this is a common problem and SiriusXM could care less. Don’t bother calling customer service. It’s a waste of time.
Retarded
by SexyManna on 2020/08/10 19:33
You people are retarded. It’s been MONTHS, and even after a couple of updates, I STILL CANT LOGIN!!!! You people are just completely incompetent or you outsourced your software to India like you outsourced your customer service to Jamaica. PATHETIC NOT RENEWING MY SUBSCRIPTION!!!!!!!!!
Not very good app
by postxup62 on 2020/08/10 17:15
The app in theory would be better then through the car ( better sound quality and only an extra delay of minute or two). Unfortunately, it is not a stable app and crashes all the time. They need to re do it from the ground up.
Missing features
by JeepRuby on 2020/08/10 16:48
Spotify has figured out how to add a 15 sec. skip to the Apple Watch. You have the option on the phone app. You need to give some love to Apple Watch users. It’s a pain to have to go to my phone, open it up, go to the app just to skip 15 seconds ahead.
No music
by Narefrinch on 2020/08/09 16:20
I paid for it and the app won’t download onto my phone.
Fixed login problem
by Vader6412 on 2020/08/09 16:19
So I’m still rating this app as 3 stars here for lack of communication on SiriusXM part. I seemed to fix my login problems so hope this helps for others but I had to change my username to get it to work. App seems to be working now on my iPhone and iPad. Shame I have to go that route just to log in.
Awesome
by Ranch nnbb on 2020/08/09 08:35
Awesome
Great Service!
by Usskywatch on 2020/08/07 03:47
Great service and music. I can finally listen to 80’s/90’s Country and Classic Country that I can’t get on my regular radio. DJ’s are great on Prime Country and Willie’s Roadhouse. Thank you for the great radio service!
App’s sound is muted when using Waze
by Xboxmia on 2020/08/07 01:09
I like the app but the current version has a bug when playing through bluetooth on my phone, when using waze with the sxm app the sound is muted when a voice command appears in waze. This makes me constantly be switching apps and pressing play on the sxm app.
Carplay is BROKEN
by DotPdf on 2020/08/06 22:29
You’d think that SiriusXM, the company that got huge for being in CARS, would make a superb carplay experience so you can enjoy on-demand and live episodes . . . in your CAR? Think again. The carplay app is broken and never loads. Shows never remember their playback position. It’s impossible to change channels easily while driving. I could go on. This app needs work if they want to ever get me to switch from Apple Music.
They won’t cancel my subscription.
by brb190 on 2020/08/06 21:50
I was never emailed my account number so they won’t let me cancel. I give them the only email address that I use and they say there’s no subscription attached to that email. They said they could use my card information to access my account so I gave them the numbers from my debit card for the bank account they’re charging and they say that it’s not the right card. They refuse to cancel my subscription. I’m going to have to go to my bank and have the payments cancelled to get away from this thing. There’s something shady about all of this.
Zero stars
by Chubbylou32 on 2020/08/06 21:14
This app is horrible all around. Every day i have a problem with something.
Poor Customer Service
by Glennyrd87 on 2020/08/06 14:22
Don’t even bother signing up using the Amazon Echo Dot promo because you won’t get the redemption code. I spoke with 3 customer care agents and none of them were helpful.
Really poor app performance
by Stlboz on 2020/08/06 04:51
Regularly loses episodes of favorited shows. Sometimes I will pause a show, try to play after 5 minutes and the episode is no longer available. I joined for Howard Stern, but if it weren’t for The Bonfire on Comedy Central 95, I would stop renewing my subscription. But The Bonfire is too good to miss. Please fix the performance of your app for on demand episodes.
Just kicked me out
by Mella925 on 2020/08/05 20:48
This used to be one of my favorite go to apps but recently I been kicked out and can’t log back on. It’s weird because it work when I login on line. It’s just the app that doesn’t recognize me.. and unfortunately I can’t listen online. I’m ready to cancel this subscription to many issues.
Unstable
by lyon88 on 2020/08/05 20:09
Good when it works, but it’s usually not loading or playing even when on Wi-Fi.
App is broken?
by HungRocks on 2020/08/05 16:55
Cannot sign in and listen to music on the app! Satellite radio in the car works fine.
Login Failures
by R+(M)=xo on 2020/08/04 17:39
Wasted time twice with SiriusXM Support and they don’t know what they are doing and still can’t login to App. Sad when their marketing is heavy on how wonderful they are....yet NOT WORKING. One star for wasting lots of time. One star for inept support. One star for bad software.
Can’t log into app
by BigPound on 2020/08/04 03:13
Can’t log into app since 07/25/20. Log in info hasn’t changed. Can log into account online, just not onto app.
This app is horrid
by Odog! on 2020/08/03 16:48
App constantly does not show episodes, shows glitch
Can't activate/view account info
by WgIan100 on 2020/08/03 10:12
To find your account number you need to input your account number. They don't mention it in activation email sent to you. You'll need to call them for this. Waste of time and money. This is totally illogical method without any alternative.
Search Doesn’t Work!
by Cyclingbrother on 2020/08/02 15:17
I got tired of Spotify, wanted an awesome DJ! Listen to Lithium religiously... but, the search is messed up. Try to look up crap and it says nothing? Fix your bugs, bro! Thanks...
Doesn’t work

Disappointed
by Britz2 on 2020/07/30 14:39
The App for iPhone works fine for my use and purpose, however it’s horrible on my PC! Playback keeps stopping with a pop up message; “you are signed in on another device keep listening? YES/NO” .... I select yes and it continually keeps stopping and displaying the same message over and over and over again. I assume the other device the message is referring to is my Amazon Echo Dot with (Alexa). I should not have to keep disconnecting Alexa just to hear SiriusXM on my PC. It should not make any difference how many devices I’m signed in on. Until this glitch is fixed I stick with one star.
Nothing
by STEELCAT92 on 2020/07/30 12:25
I have tried to sign into this app multiple times and it will not load!
Love it... but
by drew1461 on 2020/07/29 20:45
The app itself is awesome and it’s great that I can listen to all the same stuff as a normal subscription with a streaming package but the Apple CarPlay application is where I listen to it 99% of the time and the application for CarPlay definitely needs work.
They can’t keep my sign on
by Monkeyassmfers on 2020/07/29 14:24
They keep emailing me advertising about streaming on your phone or computer. EVERY time I try to sign in their system does not recognize my credentials. I’ve registered more than once because of this. It is a huge waste of time.
Does not play well with CarPlay
by Ronald42 on 2020/07/28 11:01
Does not play well with CarPlay. 10% chance it will work with CarPlay on the first, second, third, ..., infinite tries.
Favorites Not Working
by Melon Mochi on 2020/07/28 05:20
When I star a favorite, it doesn’t save it and it doesn’t show up in my Favorites bar
Horrible!
by DJ Lewinski on 2020/07/27 21:38
They have no way to cancel membership online so you have to wait hours to speak with some one to cancel then they charge you for service you don’t use. Scam do not get!
scam-ISH
by SirMatt93 on 2020/07/27 04:18
I do understand that this dam-ned world is mostly all about the cash.... HOWEVER.... it still Truly Pi$$EZ ME OFF that you SiriusXM folk don’t feel like it’s enough that you RULE your niche! NO, NO!! Still, you say, “let’s really screw with ‘em..[hee-hee!].. We’ll make it so that, for the Great Sin of wanting/needing to unsubscribe, a person will have to jump thru some proverbial ‘hoops’. She/he will NOT be ALLOWED to unsub on the phone app, nor even on a phone-based browser! NOPE! Once she/he is able to FIND the HIDDEN DIRECTIONS, s/he will learn that s/he must: EITHER wait until s/he is at a PC & use its browser, completing several more ridiculous steps; OR s/he may elect to make a FV€£iNG PHONE-CALL!! We will make MILLIONS MORE DOLLAR$!!” Other than that, yes, the app, itself, is actually worth 5-Stars.🤬 PEACE!✌️😎
Any other method

I’ve reset my password “successfully “ several times. I can log in on my laptop but not through the app. Very frustrating.
Plays then shuts off
by Heather C 3 on 2020/07/26 15:32
No my internet connection. Spotify works fine. This app just recently started pausing and not playing.
Please Fix This Now!
by STG1026 on 2020/07/26 15:15
NO EXCUSE! GOOD GRIEF- GET THIS FIXED!!!! I pay for All Access and SirusXm suddenly and no longer works on iPads or through my Sonos system. It is obviously a mobile app issue, taje care of it! I can no longer listen to SirusXM at home now and will be dropping the additional All Access cost if this does not get handled. It will not even allow customers to log on and it has been going on too long! I have been patient but have had enough. With so many working from home these days what horrible public relations- that could have actually been a wonderful business opportunity... instead, no, with Sirus still getting their money each month there's no need to care. Sadly just another unregulated industry doing what they do best.
Xtra channels won’t work
by akent82 on 2020/07/25 21:19
I’ve loved having the ability to listen to the xtra channels on the app, but since the update they don’t work. I’ll get maybe through one song before it stops playing and says “trying to connect”. I’ve deleted the app and reinstalled, tried on and off WiFi, nothing works. Fix now please!!
Where’s the Apple Watch App?
by martinpbg on 2020/07/25 09:22
🤷 This is a satellite radio, no Apple Watch app out there?! Please fix this! The phone app is nice and makes the radio available on the go which is great!
Cannot log in....again
by SoberTKE on 2020/07/25 01:23
After the update yesterday I can no longer log in. I’ve tried all the troubleshooting tips and nothing works. About to cancel because this is a common occurrence
Latest update fixed button functionality
by AsleepT on 2020/07/24 22:12
Prior updates had broken rewind button and the scrubbing backwards/forwards button, thanks to support techs for fixing this. I’m not going to update this ever again. :)
Falling short and getting paid.
by Pfiggy on 2020/07/24 05:55
First time long time. This may not pertain to you as a reader. Upon my review; for my Sirius XM update. Read the following as the reason: To improve my ad relevance. I pay for this, yes ads are there. I know the value of a hard earned buck. I pay for data. And when I have to do an upload. I do as most without a passing thought. But data has limits and sometimes you have to choose which app you can upload. So, two questions an observation and food for thought. Would not it be in my best to remove as many ads as possible and just give me content? Why should I use my data for ad relevance? Make me WANT TO NEED TO. Make it a reason or be like most and boiler plate. Regardless, still update apps when I see boiler plate. Long as what you get from that app/service is worth it. In a climate of change and introspect it’s easy to lose focus and get short sighted. It’s life. Bababooey
Can’t sign in
by Lore132 on 2020/07/24 04:06
I’ve had an Amazon FireStick for five years. I’ve down loaded SiriusXM as a result of a free trial offer. All was going almost perfectly but sometimes Sirius would have to buffer. I was told that my older FireStick probably needed to be replaced. I bought a new FireStick and thought the problem solved. However, I cannot sign on with the new FireStick. My sign on and password are correct. My Wi-Fi is strong but nothing. I spent all morning with various SiriusXM “troubleshooters” with no results. I will not purchase a plan. It upsetting because I was really enjoying it.
Getting worse
by Bv0312 on 2020/07/24 04:04
More and more “breaks” between songs to talk about other channels or promos on SiriusXM. It is still not anywhere near the amount on FM radio, but it’s getting longer. As far as the app, it too is becoming not usable. No connection errors yet all my other data services work fine, favorites erase by themselves and become out of order from how I listed them. This isn’t reliable anymore...when the app won’t play, I usually change over to Apple Music or Amazon Music app and start a radio station there.

Favorites flat out does not work
Service blows
by mb194911 on 2020/07/23 18:13
I said I’d pass up this offer because customer service was so aggravating but that Toyota Pizza Ship didn’t have the CD player that was part of RAV4 XSE Pkg. I paid for so I tried it out signed up Sirius started using my credit Card to make unauthorized payments that bounced causing bank fees and penalties. I need a Vendor to tell me when a free trail is about to expire. I’ve tried to them about unauthorized use of my credit card listened to of my favorite artist today and will give it another trail
Unable to login
by Swimbikerun400 on 2020/07/23 16:01
Just keeps “loading” at the long page, cannot login. Alexa functionality also broken. Have been told it’s a “technical” issue and is being worked on, but it’s been a week and everything worked great a week ago.
Very mediocre
by Tmac9wr on 2020/07/23 15:44
The app force crashes multiple times a day, and randomly erased all my ‘favorited’ shows & channels from time to time. I’m not sure how such a pedestrian app can have such a high average rating. I’ve had this problem over both Android and iOS, over multiple phones on each platform, so I can’t imagine I’m the only one experiencing these issues.
2 logins per account
by shawn89711 on 2020/07/23 12:45
Why can’t we have 2 logins per account. My wife listens to e street radio and when I am listening on my phone she can not listen because of this b.s. limit you created. At least allow this if the users are on the same Wi_Fi. If I am at work and using the app she can not listen to anything on Sirius xm. Developers please listen to the users fix this issue. I do not want another subscription I pay for a radio in my car already. All this company is a money grabbing company.
Timeout or crash. Please fix playback
by Not a wb on 2020/07/23 04:46
I can’t rewind unless I’ve been listening in the background. I can’t skip commercials with normal scrubbing on a playback interface. I can only go to live. Surely the iOS app can be just as capable as the hardware you’ve been making for years. Thank you for the extra channels but since the update, iOS, macOS, and web clients either time out or expire WAY too fast. I paid to listen without needing to hit refresh. Please keep it that way. That aside, keep up the great work.
Horrible!
by No for you on 2020/07/22 23:41
This update is horrible! Unlimited data have this in 4 rides and on my phone and computer and 3 tablets and it won’t stream for more than 15 minutes then says off line! Horrible
Glitchy plus sync issues
by VincebusMaximusII on 2020/07/22 22:02
I won’t mention all the glitches others have already covered. One irritating thing for me is that when selecting multiple homepods for output, it almost never syncs the stream on the first or even second time. I found that you have to select two homepods, and if the stream is not synced, turn them off, revert to phone for output, then try speakers again. I know it’s not my network or the homepods because ALL of my other audio apps sync perfectly on the first try.
Battery drain
by willard311 on 2020/07/22 18:53
I’ve been using Sirius over 10 years this app is still garbage. The last version was unstable I would have to re add my favorites every week. This version is a huge battery drain. I used to be able to listen all day no battery problems, the last week my battery dies after about 2 hours of listening. This needs to be fixed ASAP
So poorly designed. Hard to use. The only reason I keep this going is for
by Chimicha on 2020/07/22 17:56
So poorly designed. Hard to use. The only reason I keep this going is for Howard Stern. This app needs to be completely overhauled.
Doesn’t work
by RMac13 on 2020/07/21 17:37

Works, usually
by Scottout on 2020/07/20 23:57
Listen all day, multiple channels, on my iPad sending it to my Home Pod. At various points will just stop sending signal to the Home Pod. I switch over to Apple Music and it works fine. Use Safari to play, works fine. Use local music, works fine. Just the Sirius app. Restart the iPad, starts working again. Please fix
Can’t stream properly and rotated
by anandcp on 2020/07/20 15:47
Can’t resume after a long wait. Can’t change channels easily. Can’t keep favorites organized. Useless.
Jacked up again
by krisreese on 2020/07/20 13:50
Here is another update that has jacked up the app. I usually listen to shows after the fact and have been able to go 5 hours back in time which USED to be the case with the online app. As of today it appears that I can’t go backwards. I hope this is a temporary problem. It made me angry when this was done to the online app but if the phone app forces me to only be able to go to the beginning of the current show, it will be the last straw and I will cancel my subscription.
Just sticks
by Mybabyangel on 2020/07/19 23:36
Downloaded app to use prepaid service I have in my cars and it won’t log in, just stuck on log in and doesn’t continue.
Always Broken
by TheVampireGod on 2020/07/19 10:19
Not a day goes by where there’s not an error that says “Sorry something went wrong”, or “Offline”, or “This episode not available”. If happens every few hours regardless of coverage or connection. It’s very inconvenient.
Can’t log in.
by cslagter on 2020/07/19 03:45

Saved shows don’t always play
by srp1222 on 2020/07/18 12:48
Close to half of the time, saved shows will not play. The app will open but the little wheel keeps spinning and nothing happens. Also, my favorite shows have a tendency to disappear every week or two. Very frustrating!

Glitchiest App in App Store
by Zaggott on 2020/07/16 20:06
Constantly having to uninstall/reinstall the app to be able to listen to music. The app always loses my place when I’m listening to Howard Stern. Some episodes are available one minute and then unavailable the next. Frequently deletes my saved episodes. Having to restart my phone to get the app to work at all. Can’t connect via WiFi or LTE sometimes, with the app stating that there’s no internet available (other apps and SpeedTest indicate that I have a fine connection via either WiFi or LTE.) Just a very frustrating app. I’m leaving this review after spending FIFTEEN minutes trying to TRICK the app into working for me. I gave up after uninstalling, reinstalling, and restarting my phone twice. I’m not exaggerating when I say this is the worst app I’ve ever had to use. They’re holding Howard Stern hostage by being the only content provider that has him. And they know it. So they’re not motivated to fix the app. For $140 every 6 months, it’d be amazing if the app worked half as well as Candy Crush.
Crap
by acruz83 on 2020/07/16 14:16
Doesn’t even let me login. It keeps saying it doesn’t recognize my username or password.
Just updated. Big mistake.
by Danp 97 on 2020/07/16 04:56
I just updated the app to the latest version. The one with the “bug fixes.” Now it doesn’t work at all. It tells me I’m offline, which is not true. I see from recent reviews that others have the same problem. I’ve restarted my iPad, still no luck. Come on! Get this fixed, even if you have to roll back to a previous version.
No I'm NOT "Offline!
by RealEstateZealot on 2020/07/16 04:56
RN who loves to listen to Urban View "on demand" in middle of the night to relax (in a pandemic!). Terribly disappointed when PAID (many years!) SiriusXM app STOPS PLAYING + says I need to "connect to internet". How do you keep updating BUT NEVER FIX SAME BUG??
Great content horrible app
by BigRed717 on 2020/07/16 04:46
Getting tired of having to force close app and reopen 10 times a day when listening. Plus daily system crashes around 12am thru 2am eastern time is getting annoying. Instead of paying out a special dividend fix your system to avoid these interruptions. Getting close to canceling service
Fake reviews
by guy on 2020/07/16 02:58
I’m calling out all the recent reviews stating the app doesn’t work etc as fake. The app has and does work fine and is actually really nice. And now that they are venturing into the podcast arena it’s only going to get more use! Stern, music, podcasts, sports, Netflix comedy channel, new pop up channels regularly etc. etc...wow talk about keeping people listening, a lot of great stuff always on and continuously over the entire country via their satellites. Tune in and stay awhile, you won’t look back.
Unreliable
by JJ1130 on 2020/07/15 21:32
This app is awesome when and if it works correctly. If I had an alternative way to listen to the shows I frequent I would. Constantly clears out favorites. Won’t allow me to find the shows I like after it deletes my favorites.. just overall not that great.They’re lucky the bonfire is worth dealing with the non stop issues
Can’t login!
by Megess on 2020/07/15 15:35
I just tried logging into the app for the first time. I thought I was giving the wrong using name and password so I went on my computer and changed both. I came back to the app and tried again and it still wouldn’t log me in! Why do xm stations always promote this app when it doesn’t work!?

Cancelling is extremely difficult, good luck!
by pask one on 2020/07/14 12:17
No streaming app makes it that difficult to cancel, no reason why you should have to call and speak to a rep for something as simple as a cancellation. 👎
Can’t log in
by Brian Vett on 2020/07/14 09:05
Since the last update I can no longer log in with the correct password and user name. Even reset online and still nothing. Stop spending money sending renewal notices for cars I haven’t had in years and fix your app

I would think during a time where many people are working from home and could be listening to the app, it would be top priority for a company to make sure their app is working. Very frustrated, will likely cancel my subscription if not fixed soon since I rarely drive my car anymore.
This app has so many issues
by Patrick in Eastie on 2020/07/13 18:13
This app continues to be very buggy. It forgets all your favorite shows routinely, and has done so for years now. It forgets your quality settings. Sometimes it randomly insists “the date on your device appears to be in the past” and refuses to let you listen. And if you dare open the app on one of your other devices, your stream will come to a screeching halt because how dare you, you paying customer. The app also lacks simple features like a 15-second back button on the lock screen. SiriusXM has a lot of great content, but the app can be wildly frustrating, and their heavy-handed content management will probably annoy anyone with more than one device.
Bugs
by Way to many ads on 2020/07/13 12:55
Still a lot of bugs to work out. App will randomly freeze and crash. Every couple of days it deletes ALL my downloads with no warning. When it works, it’s great, but it doesn’t work reliably for too long.
Good programming. awful app
by macront on 2020/07/12 14:35
I am grateful for the programming that SiriusXM offers. The variety of news and music programming is quite remarkable. However, the app is terrible.I am beyond surprised that the average of reviews is 4.8 stars. The interface is awkward. I like to listen live, and when the app opens, it does not open in that mode. It is often difficult to find the button to press to 'go live', and when you find and press the button often you do not go live anyway, or it takes several minutes for the program to begin. Sometimes, like today, the app is telling me that I am listening live to Meet the Press, but it is actually playing a program from Friday. It is really unfortunate that SiriusXM does not have an interest in improving the app. We have to use it, because it is the only way to listen from a mobile device, but it is a loser and often provides a frustrating experience.
Last update caused volume differences
by Fan1k on 2020/07/11 21:03
I am primarily an octane listener. The last update created a big difference between DJ volume and music volume. DJ is much louder than music and have to turn down the volume after every song. Please fix! 7/11 - Last update still did not fix volume differences between DJ and music. DJ Volume twice as loud as music
Thanks, but No Thanks.
by ZJG11990 on 2020/07/11 17:47
Thanks, but no thanks. I can only listen to XM in the car. I’m hardly ever get to use it on my phone. It automatically makes me sign in every time I open the app, then will sit there at the loading screen (all day if I let it). Unsuccessful with shutting it down and logging in again. Constant loading. Same goes for Apple TV. I’m sticking with easier apps, where you can simply Log in and Listen. SmH.
Cancellation is terrible
by Anhthuynh on 2020/07/11 13:45
I have never seen any cancellation service that is really terrible. You cant cancel online.
Best music
by ArmageddonPony on 2020/07/11 09:12
My mom went to get her car detailed by a friend of hers. When she got the car back, there was a Spanish radio station playing. Let me tell you that channel is FIRE. Y’all really outdo yourselves with these channels honestly
Issue with SiriusXM in CarPlay... PLEASE FIX!!
by joshtowens on 2020/07/10 21:28
In the last 3 updates for this app SiriusXM will not work properly in CarPlay, it only shows up ONE channel within each category. Where’s the rest of the channels???? I love SiriusXM but am seriously considering unsubscribing from the service until this issue is fix. Haven’t had a good experience dealing with their AWFUL customer service either.
Won’t log me in?!?
by snyderjoe42 on 2020/07/10 14:21
Just sits there and try’s to load but nothing happens! Frustrating!
CarPlay in iOS12 still broken
by Smiffleblurf on 2018/10/10 05:01
I purchased an unlimited cellular Internet subscription to use this app in CarPlay instead of using my actual SiriusXM antenna on my car — THATS’s how much I like using this app. The last redesign was an amazing step forward. I dreaded updating to iOS 12 and sure enough the app on CarPlay wouldn’t load any of my favorites and recents. Even after this recent CarPlay fix update it didn’t fix much. Recents list still doesn’t load at all. When I still pull up my channel favorites it’ll either never load or have this long delay until it loads or I have to dangerously open the app on my phone to jumpstart it to load. I did notice once I was able to get the channels to load in favorites the recents tab finally loaded up, but still that’s an awkward bug. Just really bad loading issues in regards to displaying listed information in CarPlay all around. Hopefully a fix is coming soon so that I don’t have to use a one star review to report a bug, but the one star is well earned when the “App Support” link takes you to a FAQ site that doesn’t list this issue or a bug reporting option for this app. This app isn’t even listed on the Contact Us support options. This whole experience is adding misanthropy fuel.
Serve a 2nd vehicle for free, or use as a fix for an obstructed antenna
by RV Sciencephile on 2018/06/23 13:55
By purchasing the high end SiriusXM service for one satellite receiver, you get this excellent streaming capability as a free bonus. If you have a smartphone with a decent data plan, you don’t need to increase satellite charges by adding a subscription for the other vehicle(s). Get it for one, then use your phone to stream the web based service thru the Bluetooth or cable connection to the audio system in your additional vehicle(s). It’s a terrific bargain for me, as I have 2 cars and two RV’s, and I can get full channel service for all four with just one subscription. Also, for those with vehicles (like my truck camper) that have difficulty getting a clear usable obstruction-free sat signal for their partially shadowed antenna, you can subscribe to service for the vehicle radio, then when in conditions when your antenna isn’t reliable, switch to using your smartphone for streaming to that radio from the same sat account via cell service providers. Thanks SiriusXM for offering this excellent, flexible service at a fair package price!
I Love Channel 90 so I bought Premium Pkg
by RealTennesseeMcCoy on 2020/04/05 16:13
I am huge racing fan and especially L❤️VE NASCAR and LeMann racing fan. I began listening to XM Radio my 2005 BMW X-5 and I’ve had it ever since. Now, SirusXm Radio, Initially, I only listened to channel 90 Nascar Radio. Over years I have listened to ESPN OR Fox SportS during college football season. We have it in all 4 cars and two of the tractors. I had not deeply explored other channels until I begin using the app on my mobile device when I’m mowing in Spring amd Summer 12-16 hours a week. They even have workout music by the decade and most recently added Indy Channel, with hosts, Jack Arute and AJ Allmendinger ! Call and they will negotiate a price with you. Only one warning..if you give a credit card number they will auto renew every year. I did not like that and it took a month for them to understand I would either be billed at home the old fashioned way- or cancel. Auto renew takes away a locked in price. They renew at market price.. which was always double the rate I got when I called or this last period I did online via chat session.
Great App
by TaxisLatka on 2019/02/08 22:43
NEW REVIEW (Feb. 2019): Another quick fix to the annoying download issue. Great response. App is back to working great. OLD REVIEW (Feb. 2019): The new update is awful. It’s now back to the same issue of downloaded shows not opening from the last place they were being listened to. You can listen to a downloaded show for two hours and then when you go back to the app instead of it saving your place and continuing playing where it was, it goes back to some previous point at the very beginning of the show. Very annoying and it’s happened before. Thought they had it worked out but now this issue is back. Please fix as soon as possible as this makes the app almost unusable. Wish I never updated. Should’ve stuck with the last version that actually worked. Very angry. OLD REVIEW (2018): Love the updated app. It’s the best. The addition of video is pretty cool, but the Stern Shows are loaded fast (usually same afternoon). Had an issue with holding place of downloaded shows, but it appears to have been resolved. A+
Too many bugs
by DJ Joey G on 2019/09/03 21:23
I have MANY apps on my phone and this one has to be one of the most unreliable. Too many issues to list here but the top two that make me crazy are #1 It stops working randomly mid shows, doesn't matter if its while listening to an on demand episode, a download or live. The app would go into a never ending loading state or just crash completely. #2 the most annoying and dangerous bug is when the app randomly starts playing in my pocket at the worst times. I listen to some XL rated shows with adult language and these shows that i haven't listened to for a few hours or sometimes haven't listened to that day at all will just start playing, full volume, in my pocket. The app is not running so i cant even kill it, i have to frantically turn the volume down then go into my control center and pause it. Its gotten to the point where if i’m going into certain places i have to turn my volume all the way down because i cant trust the app to not start playing, or i need to make sure the last thing i listen to is “safe”....Also when my phone connects to the bluetooth in my vehicles it just starts playing if i want it to or not, again the app isn't even running. Its ridiculous.....
God help you if . . . . . . Update
by Queenbeedlg on 2018/06/01 14:24
Like me, you use your iPad in landscape mode. I’ve changed every relevant setting I can think of to get this app to load in landscape mode (as it once did prior to one of the latest updates) but, alas, to no avail. This is so much of a problem that saving the $20 a month I pay for this service is under serious consideration. It’s too much money to pay for the inconvenience of having to turn my iPad 90 degrees to read the app. I would have given it less than one star had that been possible. Update: I’m happy to report that the people at Sirius were listening and have addressed this landscape vs. portrait mode problem. It’s nice to know that there are still some companies out there who listen to their customer’s complaints and respond to them positively, especially in such a short period of time. Happily, I will not have to cancel my subscription, and I can recommend this app without reservation at a solid 5 stars.
No landscape mode; update horrible for RadioClassics
by PetiteFrog on 2018/06/07 23:02
UPDATE: Thanks for adding the landscape mode back - although why on earth was it removed in the first place??? I have upgraded my rating from 1 star to 3 stars. What would give it one more star - display the times of the previously played RadioClassic shows. I have no idea what played when. You provide the option to listen to earlier shows, but the segments aren’t descriptive enough so I am having to go through all of them to find the show I want to listen to. PREVIOUS REVIEW: As others have stated, not having the ability to view using landscape mode is very annoying. However, not nearly as annoying and useless as what the upgrade has done to the RadioClassics station. Before the update, I could see all the programs that played in the past 5 or 6 hours and select one of those shows - easily. Now —- you can’t see the time a previous show was played and have to guess which item it is in the viewable segments. Viewing all the segments is nearly impossible. No way to easily see and select earlier segments. The upgrade has made the RadioClassics stations impossible to navigate.
CarPlay buggy, no chrome cast support but good sound quality
by Cypherstream on 2018/10/25 02:17
So glad they recently added Apple CarPlay, however it’s very buggy. Many times favorites don’t load, recents may not load, or the car play screen is just blank. It does work better if you unlock your phone first, but who can do that if your driving and have your phone put down (it auto locks fairly quickly). What is wrong with SiriusXM not offering chromecast functionality? It seems this would be the easiest way to get SXM in your house. To be able to chrome cast SXM would be a great asset to listen at home when doing household work. Other than the very buggy CarPlay support and lack of Chromecast feature, the sound quality is far better than what you get on the actual satellite. You also have access to many more channels and on demand content. This is why I prefer to use the app via CarPlay instead of my cars built in XM tuner. My car only goes up to channels in the 200’s. The app has channels into the 700’s! I’m no longer missing out on Faction or the Emo Project, indie 1.0, or Rock Bar. If only CarPlay worked all the time, this would be a killer app.
Favorites won’t save & keep getting deleted
by Food Jock on 2020/06/18 20:38
Does Sirius even read these user reviews and care about customer service? For 2 months all my favorites keep getting deleted. Lately it seems to occur almost daily, sometimes even twice in a day. Before that it had been every couple weeks. I’ve seen other reviews claiming the same thing. Do you even read the user reviews? Last month I even sent a Feedback email to tech support reporting the issue and was given a response that they will reply back within 24 hrs. Nope. Nothing. Not even a follow up. And meanwhile, the problem has gotten worse and it’s very time consuming to constantly go back & forth re adding shows to the favorites list. In addition, 3 times in the past week and as recently as last night, I haven’t been able to access anything because the app keeps saying “we’re sorry but you seem to be offline. Please check your WiFi connection or try again later.” There’s been absolutely nothing wrong with my internet & WiFi. This used to be my favorite app and I use it daily mostly for MLB Radio. But lately this app has been horrible and I’m paying too much money for an annual subscription to put up with this crap.
New features but lacking polish
by drew_petricc on 2018/11/08 20:01
Lots of glitz and glamour over the new features, & call me crazy, but it actually seems *harder* to just get to my downloaded shows now... Also, if there’s something that looks cool on my home page, better remember it or keep swiping b/c it just scrolls away after a few seconds... sure it’s good to show the different options, but annoying. It also seems to have obfuscated which is actually a new show, or even to just get to what is actually playing live on 100 now. For all its faults, this was not an issue with the old version. All this complaining aside I do like the new app and addition of video clips etc. I’m just looking forward to some revision with usability/ease of use in mind—so keep it up dev team!! Thanks for a great app, I will change to five stars when updated! I do like the more streamlined way to manage/delete downloads and the addition of forward and backward skipping by a few seconds (which was sorely needed). So it’s great & I love it—that’s why I’m saying it just needs a few revisions to be the best in my opinion, thanks.
The more I spend time with this..
by Phantom2089 on 2018/05/14 23:02
The more I’m regretting my app update for it. Why would you fix something that was not broken?? I really hate this new update. There are more cons to point out than pro’s on this! Con: -No mix customizations (BIG NO!) -No info description on each channel and shows within that channel, nor do they provide twitter/phone number to call in the radio channel! -adding favorites just doesn’t work. -backtracking only goes so much as 3 hrs instead of 6 hrs. -there’s no schedule for when upcoming shows are going to broadcast. -channel freezes and locks if your app ended up foreclosing on you or you foreclose the app. (I was always able to resume where I left off EVEN when I foreclosed it, now it makes me lose my place wherever I’m in. REALLY FRUSTRATING ESPECIALLY WITH GRATEFUL DEAD CONCERTS!!!!) -no bright/dim light interface option, I hate how bright this design is now, especially late at night. -takes longer to connect to audio when it used to not on data connection. Pro’s: -Video on-demand for Howard Stern -audio scroller is a bit easier when you want to rewind or fast forward a lot. And that’s all the pros that’s on this app. You have got some MAJOR EDITING to BRING BACK some of the old WITH the new! I feel like my subscription has just plummeted to a mediocre service, I’m really debating on cancelling if they don’t bring back and improve their main qualities of their app. BRING BACK THE OLD APP!!!
Something w/accessibility for all ages.
by lil'fyre on 2019/11/17 23:15
I LOVE Apple Play, don’t get me wrong!! And unfortunately in some newer cars you’ll have to pay for the feature of have Apple Play. I can only assume it’s because the Xirius option is as basic as it can get. Normally, that’s nothing to be bothered about (I’ll just pay for the dealership to ‘install Apple Play’). The eye opener for me was when I bought my now favorite modern car; A 2019 Hyundai Kona. It came with both higher ends of both media options. At first I stuck to what I knew, Apple Play. But the I started leaving Apple Play off, and realizing how much I was enjoying Xirius and the huge variety they offered. And, the price for a subscription was insanely good for all it has (you can customize what you want as well). My favorite is being able the listen to whatever I was, in the car, and picking it up again via my phone, or tablet. Thanks for making options for consumers!!!
Sirisously Addicted
by Cindy.Curl.Beye.Iowa on 2018/09/05 14:10
I can no longer listen to regular FM radio. I love my Sirius. Wish you would have done more of a tribute to David Cassidy. A channel for a short time in his honor would be amazing. At the same time, 70’s On 7 should be playing more of David’s stuff from his solo albums, as well as Partridge Family recordings; definitely not enough of the latter, and absolutely none of the forbearing. David broke many records for various things in his career, which widely go unrecognized. I was really disappointed to see no periodicals in his memory, especially a Rolling Stones mag dedication. Such a talented artist should be remembered. I also enjoy 60’s On 6 to get my Mad Men fix; love your regular morning DJ - he’s been everywhere! Cowboy Bob & the 40’s Channel are greatly appreciated when I’m missing my grandparents. I also use the Toddler Channel a lot for my grandchildren. And when I’m feeling a little blue, it’s wonderful that I can listen Christmas music any time of the year to cheer me up! Any chance we could have a Dean Martin channel for a short while? Frank’s channel don’t play him enough. What a legend! And believe it or not, Lawrence Welk still has a huge fan base that tunes in to Public TV every Saturday night to watch his reruns... The Welk Channel, at least during the holidays ? Love you guys. Never go away! Sincerely, Faithful Subscriber Cindy Beye Marshall County, Iowa
Great new redesign, some suggestions
by Nelson Ned on 2019/03/30 19:42
UPDATE: Happy that you quickly fixed the landscape iPad issue. CarPlay app is kind of a hot mess. When it works it shows there is tremendous potential for it. But alas, it doesn’t always work. Sometimes it just refuses to stream or update or show anything really. Then there is the sporadic but extremely annoying display of channels and favorites. Often it will only show the first couple of pages of channels and favorites. You can’t see any of the higher numbered channels or favorites that are on the later pages. This is super annoying and I really wish this would be fixed. Finally, Apple Watch app with stand-alone playback on cellular. Please, please, please with a cherry on top. OLD REVIEW: I’m very happy with the performance and new design. It has been working great. Hopefully you bring landscape mode to iPad as the newest version doesn’t have it. Also I really hope you consider an Apple Watch compatible app. Nothing would compliment my cellular Apple Watch more than being able to stream Sirius XM on it. Your UI wouldn’t have to be that complicated. A simple way to select stations and pause, play, volume, favorites, etc. Come on guys and gals. I know you can make this happen. Also I’m having an issue with my favorites not showing all the stations on all devices. My iPhone seems to show them all but my iPad does not. Hopefully the synchronization of favorite stations across all devices can be fixed.
Volume Bar?
by Lwmavrik on 2017/12/21 21:07
Nice app for the most part, but some silly omissions...Volume Bar for iPad?..., iPhone has it...albeit flawed...it needs to stay on the screen permanently and be further down so you don’t run into the other bar above it that handles rew/ff.... I waited for years for a last channel "jump to" button so you can quickly toggle between two channels?!? Recent‘s from the latest update covers that... it’s about time! I have felt for years like the people who develop this app never use it, because if you’ve ever used a television remote control in your life an A/B button and the volume button is what you use the most and if you haven’t noticed, the volume buttons on phones are often not so easy, particularly if you have a case on it! Thus the volume needs to stay on the LCD screen at all times not appear and disappear ...once you have touched the button on the side, why would you then need to then slide over to the one that appears on the screen.. it’s moronic!! Someone needs to make more of an effort and this can be 5 stars!
Downloads DO NOT WORK
by edbeaton on 2018/06/01 23:14
What’s the point of having a download feature if I still need a connection?? I’ve downloaded on-demand episodes, and they played back fine, until I lost my cell/WiFi signal (my commute includes areas w slow to no connection for stretches). So to me this means that the app is not accessing whatever file is downloaded locally to the phone, and I’m using data to access something I supposedly downloaded to use later. Downloads in previous versions were buggy (also looked for data connection), but I eventually was able to get to episodes already downloaded. Please fix this!!! Update: so the top complaint (landscape on iPad) is fixed, but downloads still don’t work. Yes the downloads complete (didn’t have that issue previously), but you CAN’T ACCESS the “downloaded” files. I get the spinning icon over the play button when selected from the downloads folder (buried in the settings area as ppl have complained about before) and essentially freeze the app. Who do I have to call to get reimbursed for all the data I’m burning through since I can’t download over WiFi to then listen later???
Something has changed!
by B& aid on 2020/01/31 09:23
I have been an XM Radio listener for years and my favorite channel is Radio Classics. I have used the app for years to catch up on content I might have missed. The app used to work well for listening to shows that had already aired. However, after they added Pandora features to the XM app, the app became unreliable. Before, switching from segment to segment worked well and the skip forward feature worked well. Now however, as you near the end of one segment, you can no longer reliably click on a different story segment and have the app react.... the sound just stops and you get a spinning wheel. Nothing happens. You can close the app and restart it sometimes to get it to work but here lately, even that is not working. I even deleted the app and re-installed but no joy. This has become exceedingly frustrating and totally ruins one of the main benefits of subscribing to the digital content service. I wish companies would more thoroughly test their updates before “breaking” perfectly good applications.
This App is Lame
by MSTampaFL on 2020/05/22 01:28
No matter how many updates they release, this app is still a PIECE OF JUNK. And I'm tired of being polite about it. First, the saved on-demand favorites randomly disappear causing me to have to re-save them. Sometimes a reboot will bring them back, sometimes not. This bug has been in the last 3 or 4 versions. Also, the app won't "let go" of what I was listening to before to go to live or another choice. Example, listening to an on-demand news episode and then wanting to go to the live channel, the wheel just spins and spins and the eventually goes back to the main menu with the prior show still stuck in the player. Shutting down the app and restarting doesn't fix it. And there is no longer a go "Live" button in the on-demand GUI. The only workaround I've found is that you have to change to another channel and then go back to the channel you want in order for the player to clear and "let go" of what you were previously listening to. Is there some excuse SiriusXM can't hire competent developers to fix this app? Especially since we pay extra to use it???
Not crazy about the update
by missjubilada on 2018/05/16 17:18
I use this app all the time and I’m really frustrated by some of the changes in the update. It’s fine for listening to music but I also love the Radio Classics channel and the update is horrible for that. You used to be able to see the past few hours of individual shows, as well as the upcoming few hours of individual shows. Now all it shows is the past 45 minutes or so and the title of the hours long “Radio Classics” or “ When Radio Was” but not the individual programs being broadcast. And shows what commercials are played during that 45 minutes. Who would care about that?! It also used to let you choose individual programs as favorites to star ( The Jack Benny Program or Suspense, for example). Now the only options appear to be the 2 Radio Classics or When Radio Was shows ( which consist of several hours of individual programs that seem to be impossible to see within the app now). Why would an update provide fewer features than the old version ? Very frustrating. Please fix.
Free at Last!
by Fadiddle on 2019/07/18 00:49
With all the other great providers of streaming music that are free out there, this was the best thing they could have done. We are already paying for the service, and requiring additional payment like it was before for the streaming service, you turned many people away. Not just from streaming but from your service altogether. That would be like my internet service saying I had to pay for service on each device that was connected to the same service, I was already paying for. Glad y’all were able to buy pandora and work it out for us(the paying customers) to enjoy your service the way it should be; “Anyway we want to enjoy it, Anywhere we want to enjoy it.” Keep doing business like this, and you’ll not only have me as a loyal customer, but many, many more!
Great once you you can get what they promise.
by papasprep on 2018/09/01 00:15
I have loved having SiriusXM. I received it as a gift from my daughter so I could listen to baseball. With it, I can hear our beloved Cleveland Indians from my home in New England. (We lived in northeast Ohio for 17 years.). Problem was it took days and several calls to get what my daughter paid for. The station I needed didn’t come in on my radio and it seemed to be quite a problem to get it to work. Worse yet, my husband on a totally different account tried to add the Indians station, and while SiriusXM was quick to charge him for the extra station, they failed to let him know that for some reason his brand new car had the wrong type of radio to get the higher stations. (He already has a basic XM radio package, so still have no clue what the issue was.) The reps that help are very nice, but it should be as easy to get the stations you are looking for, as it is for the XM folk to take your money.
Horribly Unstable
by SoFar87 on 2018/04/18 11:16
This app is a disaster. Continually has issues saying it cannot determine my location so it won’t load. Which makes no sense as my WiFi and cellular networks are working perfectly. Live in a major city and never have other app issues when this happens. Definitely happens more after a recent update which always seems to make things worse. The volume bar is hidden and the scrolling is terrible because the bar is too small and not sensitive at all. I clearly have no clue how their QA development team tests the app in real world scenarios and things is production ready. In fairness there are some great features (when the app works) and the UI is pretty decent. But some of the basic functionality for volume, scrolling within an stream like Howard Stern, and overall application stability are a disaster. Sirius has no competition. They clearly Need to just focus on the basics of building a rock solid app and stop with all the gimmick junk. Subscriber since their beginning but very disappointed they continue to ruin this app. And for the record, these issues happen on a brand new iPhone X.
Sometimes it works
by Thome258 on 2019/11/06 13:06
This app has to be the worst app for issues. Sometimes it works fine then they update it and it never fails that it causes issues. If you email customer service you get the same response every time. They tell you to delete the app and reinstall it. I don’t want to have to do that at least once a month because then I lose all the shows I’ve downloaded . I don’t have unlimited data so I like that I can download the shows I’ve missed onto the app to listen to in the car. I just wish it was more consistent and didn’t have an issue every time they put out an update. Right now the issue is that if I stop listening to a show and go back to it later it will restart from the beginning and not where I left off. Then I have to try to figure out where I was. I wish they’d add a forward button that only went like 20 seconds instead of having to either forward past a whole segment or slide to another part of the show but not knowing where you’ll end up stopping.
Listening to ‘the radio’ is still a great way to go! :D
by James Tormé on 2019/04/18 00:55
Even in this age of overstimulation and emphasis on the visual, listening to a good old radio show is still a totally fulfilling experience and one that is uniquely “my time”. Do you listen. You reflect. And you can do something else all the while (like drive, guard a present pod, or fix somebody’s rear left suspension housing) without feeling held hostage at all. A lot of people who don’t have the time to read a lot get the majority of their outside perspectives on life from listening to the radio on that daily commute, when they are, for a time, a ‘captive audience’ for life‘s commentators. This can be a good thing or a bad thing depending on your perspective. But at least it allows them to think about topical stuff for a minute… And in that time their mind escapes some of that add you to build up by the daily grind.
The redesign has made it so much worse
by Ben B 84 on 2018/06/22 03:40
I love SiriusXM. I’m a streaming-only customer... I live in NYC and never drive. So this app and the web app are the only ways I listen to SiriusXM. The content is what keeps me coming back. However, this application post-redesign a few months ago is one of the worst I’ve ever seen. Something basic: entering the app, you’re sometimes prompted by one of those “rate this on iTunes” dialogs. Ok, fine. Everyone needs to keep their rating up, I get it. However, the modal for that interaction doesn’t have an overlay that shows that other actions in the application are disabled. It looks like the other functions of the player... play/pause, etc. are usable. So I spend 20 seconds thinking the app is broken, until I realize there’s a modal for review in the foreground. Then I start streaming. That works fine, until I encounter connectivity issues, which is most of the commute in NYC. The “go live” button isn’t a button.. it’s just text, and has no indication that it’s been pressed (which is mobile app dev 101). It feels like the press event hasn’t happened. I’m usually sure that it didn’t, and that the app is broken. Most of the time I terminate the entire app and reload it to get a working stream. Honestly, you should fire anyone involved with the redesign of this application. They don’t have enough experience to develop a coherent mobile application. Whoever implemented the previous version seemed to know what they were doing.

Just an update - I'm not adding any new updates - who knows If it improves things or not. Sirius are you responding to these postings? I have an iPhone 6, using iOS 10.3, no intentions to upgrade my iOS for numerous reasons. No content has been downloaded, so I don't understand - 3.x Gb storage. That much ? With no downloaded content? Does the basic app use that much storage? Btw - howard off again - another week ? Week of 3-18. Must be nice ! As far as the reviewer wrote about updating iOS one iPhone I have the latest and greatest and now my serious app is crashing. Not because I'm very low on memory, but it's worked before those conditions. I do agree that it's annoying for example that if I see that Riley Morgan is scheduled on Howard 101 the something entirely different. These apps are designed by developers that should be able to solve these problems and resolve the issues. I've been looking for employment for a long time and I am a graphic designer was some interactive design skills. So it baffles me that you have developers who haven't gotten it right and got these issues resolved. So Sirius XM hiring manager, hire me! Visual, marketing and technical problem solving is what I do best. With a little insight and team effort, i'll get all these issues solved.
Can’t sign in
by teaboneski on 2020/04/02 01:03
I’ve been using this app for years and there are always issues. The current one (and it’s kind of a big one) is that I can’t get passed the login screen. I’ve been trying to log in since March 11th, when I was logged out randomly (which happens occasionally with most subscription apps, so no big deal). Today is April 1, and I still haven’t been able to log in. I know my credentials, so that’s not the problem. I can still log into my account on the web, it’s just the mobile app I can’t sign into. I type in my credentials and the SiriusXM logo pops up and loads indefinitely. I’ve reached out to support (phone and email) but it’s impossible getting in touch right now, which is understandable in the current circumstances. I get it, I just don’t want to be paying for something I can’t use. You also can’t cancel your account without speaking to a representative. As stated above, that’s nearly impossible right now. And there’s no online option to cancel. Not sure what to do at this point.
Bogus product
by jimmm37522579000 on 2020/03/24 14:56
This is review for Sirius xm in general. What a pain of a product. I’ve been a subscriber for years. It’s always been a hassle. I always had to call to get he same deal, over and over again. I’d have to spend half an hour on the phone every 5 months to get my radio for $25 even then they would always automatically renew me even when I’d specifically ask them not to, and of course the automatic renewal would be at triple the price. So every time I have to call and spend all that time on the phone to get refunded and put back on the same deal I’ve always had. I finally had enough of wasting my time on all that so I cancelled all together. After receiving 100 phone calls from them and me expressing my issues, they told me they would give me a full year, continuing at the price I always paid. They confirmed I would still have all my channels. Well my radio renewed and it’s missing both Howard stern channels; the whole reason I subscribed. So there’s another 45 minutes on the phone to cancel and get my refund. Sirius has a great product but why can’t I just continue paying the same amount to get my channels? I don’t understand how such a big company can be so difficult. I just want to pay for the product and not have all his hassle. The process of trying to renew feels like I’m buying a car every time. I’d love to continue giving Sirius my money, hopefully one day they decide to start running their business with some class and customer support.
Overall, a solid app!
by JesusIsKing87 on 2018/02/16 17:12
The Sirius-XM app works pretty well overall but there needs to be a volume bar added (as another previous review stated) and I would like to also see the name of the song/artist/year scroll from left to right. I often see songs that have either a longer name or the artist/group having a lengthier name, and it’s cut off to where you can’t even see the year it came out. In other words it doesn’t scroll across left to right as it should. Please add these two things along with general enhancements regularly to make this app better. I enjoy listening to mostly music (60s on 6 preferably) on this app and being able to adjust the volume (without using the side manual volume adjustment) on the screen and seeing the year would be a great improvement. Thank you! :-)
Music w/out interrupting commercial.
by NanaLucyB on 2019/06/24 19:12
I wish to thank series for the music that I enjoy which is sometimes find music to relax me and I enjoy the bridge crossover I enjoy their all-time comedy show which is like with them the talk show I forgot what they called it has that all time TV shows as what I like and the most important no commercials that’s what I enjoy thank you very much. I I enjoy it very much that I pass on the words to others to picture at XM radio in fact I talk to my daughter into trying it for a while so it’s up to her and her husband to find out if they like it without commercials they love the kids songs cause I got five now so we’ll see how that goes because they they have different taste of music compared to me I love the all timers they like the updated type music all right thank you very much.
Bad UI functionality
by apple andy on 2018/01/03 20:48
There’s a slider on the top of the app that is suppose to let you rewind and forward to any point of the broadcast. It works 2% of the time. The slider does not detect me dragging it and then interprets my drag as a swipe taking me to the next or previous channel. How many users navigate channels this way? I feel there should be more emphasis and control of moving where you want to be in the broadcast playing. It’s very hard to get exactly where I want to be on the audio stream. I have to listen to things I already heard before or get taken ahead in the broadcast ruining things I haven’t heard yet. Your “engineers/developers” should make sure the slider is working and is not misinterpreted as a swipe to next channel. Have the slider area have a larger vertical height invisibly or visibly so I can control better. Your UI/UX designers, do some research on how many people swipe left and right to navigate channels. I usually jump into menu for this... rarely is the next or previous channel a task I want to perform or channel I want to listen to. Give more emphasis and UI space for timeline of broadcast control, I want to rewind/fast forward where I want to be on the channel I’m listening to currently. Very frustrating app to use.
Music is a big part of my Life
by OldCrow63 on 2018/06/22 23:18
Years ago I bought a Sanyo rechargeable speaker reviews stated it was made better than the manufacture wanted you can’t find them anymore it has about 3 pounds of lithium battery internal in fact all three of my friends now have the same speaker we use it all the time since I bought my new car in 2012 I’ve had SiriusXM radio all access I listen to it all the time I listen to all the channels I pay attention to the updates through the email on what’s happening through the week or weekend I have SiriusXM in all my vehicles and I’m currently listening to it as I write this review I like all the classic rock ‘n’ roll channels the Tom Petty channel the Beatles country the Western I love the whole package outstanding product will probably have it for the rest of my life Thanks
Enthusiastic SiriusXM recommendation from me @ 66
by garyjyogi on 2018/06/22 00:03
SiriusXM is the best thing to happen to music since FM Di’s in the 70’s-early 80s. Free Form Radio. Now specialty stations for ever taste by era or artist. Blues, Outlaw Country,Jazz( too many stations for me to track), Grateful Dead & Beatles stations & live play by play for my Yankee games regardless of my location. I believe it works for other sports & teams as well & Howard Stern & the tv news feeds across the spectrum from MSNBC through CNN to Fox. & more I keep discovering more content, oh yeah Classic radio, Wow! Makes driving much more fun for me & if I have passengers a great way to be a good host. I could go on but 90% didn’t read this far & I doubt I will even get a thank you from SiriusXM. Even if terrestrial radio had anything worth listening to, SiriusXM does it better & w minimal commercial interruptions. Best to all Garyjyogi
What is playing?
by Padre Joe on 2018/01/03 21:42
Great app! I love listening to music on Sirius XM most mornings and it’s nice and convenient to use my iPad to do it. The only problem is that there seems to be a glitch in the display of what is currently playing (I’m not sure what it’s supposed to be called, so I hope that makes sense). When I select a station to listen to, the current song displays like normal. Sometimes the next song displays as well, but then the display seems to get “stuck” on that first or second song and doesn’t update the title, artist, or album cover until I change stations. Then it starts all over again. My Favorites list shows the correct title and artist, but the main display remains on that first or second song. That’s the one issue I’ve noticed. Otherwise, love the app!
I can not dial back w new update
by JmOWolff on 2018/05/29 16:31
I’ve been a SiriusXM subscriber for over 10 years, and i must say that the new format change is awful. I listen to several channels where I once could scan backwards up to six hours for content. The new format no longer allows for that. My favorites are now mixed in with channels I don't care about. And trying to find out where I am when I find them takes way too much effort. I pay a premium rate for this service primarily to use on my iPhone. It used to be so easy and convenient but the new format is just too hard to use. As i mentioned I’ve been a SiriusXM subscriber for over 10 years, weathered many changes but this change is the worst yet. Please fix these problems or provide an option to go back to the previous version and the more intuitive format. I once loved this app, but I’m not listening anymore, too frustrating. I’m very disappointed.
Glitchiest App in App Store
by Zaggott on 2020/07/16 20:06
Constantly having to uninstall/reinstall the app to be able to listen to music. The app always loses my place when I’m listening to Howard Stern. Some episodes are available one minute and then unavailable the next. Frequently deletes my saved episodes. Having to restart my phone to get the app to work at all. Can’t connect via WiFi or LTE sometimes, with the app stating that there’s no internet available (other apps and SpeedTest indicate that I have a fine connection via either WiFi or LTE.) Just a very frustrating app. I’m leaving this review after spending FIFTEEN minutes trying to TRICK the app into working for me. I gave up after uninstalling, reinstalling, and restarting my phone twice. I’m not exaggerating when I say this is the worst app I’ve ever had to use. They’re holding Howard Stern hostage by being the only content provider that has him. And they know it. So they’re not motivated to fix the app. For $140 every 6 months, it’d be amazing if the app worked half as well as Candy Crush.
Serious downgrade with last update
by Vitosim on 2018/07/03 15:06
I have been a Sirius app user for years but the last app update completely ruined the experience. Since the update the tiles in my favorites consistently represent the wrong channels. For example, as I right now listen to The Lumineers on Alt Nation the title says Oingo Boingo is playing. Oingo Boingo is actually playing live on 1st Wave. I don’t even have 1st Wave in my favorites so I can’t explain that. This happens across all of My Favorites I’ve tried to delete my favorites hoping that deleting them and saving them again might fix this, but I can’t delete any of my favorites. When I deselect the star it just highlights itself again. I’ve deleted the app and reinstalled it again but nothing changes. Also, the entire new user interface is a pain to use when driving. I mostly listen during my commute. Sirius please go back to the old interface or at least give me that option. Keep in mind this isn’t a free service. I’m a paying customer but perhaps not for much longer.
Reliable yet intrusive
by delmore dingleberry on 2018/06/26 05:08
Always on, always ready, variety, pay to play It has done exactly wat was intended to happen. I am addicted to it. Just like cell, apps, pc, internet, dna, all just another avenue for our government to intrude a bit deeper into our lives. Maybe all of this will end up on a positive note. Our govt is imploding and corruption is being exposed so deep into every branch of gov, incl local gov. I am all about it. Wat goes up will come down. Watching the bad actors in our gov get a dose of wat they been doing to everyone else. Once more of us realize that the majority of corrupt players in our govt not only have ability to watch our family through their cell phone, tv, pc, anything attached to internet or especially anything called smart.... Just the truth from one that knows
High pressure tactics by Sirius Customer Service
by Floridaskater2003 on 2020/01/28 12:04
I have had Sirius XM for over 10 years. I’m a retiree on a fixed income and was up for renewal. I called Sirius yesterday to cancel my subscription. I can no longer afford to keep the service. I was on the phone for 45 minutes before I could get a confirmation number for the cancelation. The first Sirius Representative said she would give me a great deal which was actually much more than I’ve ever paid. I asked why, and she told me, I had received “too many promotional deals.” I said NO and she continued the well known Sirius reps aggressive and despicable sales tactics. I said NO I WANT TO CANCEL MY SUBSCRIPTION 10 times. Finally she told me she had to transfer me to a cancellation agent!? Another agent came on and gave me the same speech. I asked the rep if he was a cancellation agent. He said no, there was no such position, but he would process my request and I finally got my confirmation number for cancellation. These high pressure sales tactics with the elderly, should be illegal. Never again!
Resisted, but now regret waiting!
by Olde Poodle on 2018/02/28 03:20
I very much enjoy my automobile XM Radio on multiple vehicles, so did not want to spend more for an iPhone version, but having the XM/Sirius app in my pocket has proven to be even more enjoyable and I use it more than I do the car subscriptions. My favorite station, Classical Pops, is still available on the app even after it was removed from the radio! As a extra bonus, the Christmas music is still available now, and it is almost March. Further, the Fox News and Fox Business programs that I like can be restarted if I am late, or paused when I am interrupted. My only complaint is that the progress bar is inaccurate, so that it is difficult to know where one is in a news program, and the program titles do not keep up to the moment like the music titles do. All in all, I am very satisfied with Sirius/XM.

Xm radio is the way to go!
by wes from central NY on 2018/06/22 15:16
Never thought I’d pay for radio but...after listening to my local country stations for years, the amount of commercials have overcome the music. They also tend to repeat the same songs too much. I tried xm radio on free trial then became a subscriber. It’s great! My two favorite stations are the Highway & Prime country. The highway has an awesome morning show I love and they get the newest country songs before anyone else. Prime country plays the older country songs I grew up with from the 80s & 90s that the local stations just don’t anymore. Best parts, variety & NO commercials ever!! My opinion, totally worth it. And if u get the app for your phone, u can listen anytime anywhere u have good service. I highly recommend Xm. Their customer service is really good as well if u need assistance. Definelty worth it if u love music!! W.D. from N.Y.
Greatest thing to happen for Sirius XM customers
by cheesydaba on 2019/11/15 05:30
Love this app!!!!’ On it all the time for everything!!!! News..music..,Howard Stern. Comedy..,political talk.. sports....Sirius has it all...I only wish Sirius would let lifetime members and the other subscribers have Howard video..and any other video they offer that would be the cherry on top of this fantastic app...maybe for Christmas Sirius... but I am still very glad to have this service..no more radios to break..burn up etc..get this app you will not regret it!!!!! You have tons more music channels also...ok I am rambling now...just get it... ok...what??? Your busy right now..you do not have time right now...stop what your doing which is nothin cause your reading this review...get it now I command you!!!! Thank me later...Thanks Sirius...Great Job!!!!
Terrible
by Keeper007 on 2018/02/02 00:37
Unfortunately, this app (for me at least) is riddle with problems. It actually does ok if you are listening to something live. But becomes very problematic when trying to go back and listen to past programs. It constantly says “Trying to recover audio”. When trying to skip past the commercial, it will skip all the way to the live portion of the channel. Then you have to start the show back over and TRY and skip forward to where you left off. If there was another option than using this app, I would totally be all for it. Unfortunately if you want to listen outside of the car or play past shows, be prepared for a potential headache. This company is way to main stream to have an app that is this terrible. Just my opinion and I hope the finally update the app to something that worked more often than it doesn’t. Especially if you are going back to listen to past show.
Bugs Need Fixin
by aek150 on 2020/03/01 21:12
This app is great when it works. Glitches galore. For example, if you save SiriusXM shows in the app’s tab for your Favorites, they may or may not be there next time you open it. So you save them again, until a few days later when they’re gone again from your Favorites. Also, if you pause on a show, and come back later to continue, it won’t play. It won’t even play if you try to restart it from the beginning. Once you pause a show, it is stuck, really frozen, and won’t play again. You can unstick the show in 2 ways: (1) by logging out of the app and logging back in, or (2) by starting to play the next show in the queue for a couple seconds and then going back to the show you paused. Idk why that works. This app needs bug fixes but those fixes never happen. I do enjoy using the app when it works, cause there’s a lot of variety to listen to on long drives.
Meh, save yourself some money and listen to iHeartRadio
by Not Sonya on 2019/04/25 23:44
I found a better variety of music on iheart radio with the added bonus of being able to search and listen for specific bands or podcasts. And iHeartRadio is free. So you have to listen to one commercial once in a great while... totally worth it. Also, the cancellation process is nasty. You can’t cancel within the app or even online. You actually have to call customer service. I was called Valerie, then Sonya (twice). Neither of which are remotely close to my name. Awkward! Then I was given the option to GET A DEAL. No thank you. I was put on hold, I erroneously thought to process the cancellation. WOULD YOU LIKE ANOTHER DEAL. Nope, still trying to cancel. Put on hold again, for cancellation? NOPE ANOTHER DEAL. I admit by then I lost my temper and said,” I. Just. Want. To. Cancel!” Then SiriusXM was able to! And they only called me Sonya one more time.
Nightmare unsubscribe!
by Troubeall2 on 2020/01/04 23:45
DO NOT SIGN UP! I only have the app on my phone, they don’t supply all the information you need to sign in on a computer, it’s proving impossible to cancel my account. After well over an hour on the phone, mostly on hold, then chatting with someone online, then being told I would have to call again to cancel, then calling to find out the call center is closed. This is absolutely ridiculous! Is it really that difficult to make it where people can cancel through the app, come on. Update: Days later, still can’t cancel, they gave me the runaround, took 20 minutes to get my information entered correctly because the guy who barely spoke English and kept changing letters and numbers and entering it wrong. After hours on the phone, now I’m told they can’t find my account. Apparently I’m being charged for an account that I can’t cancel and doesn’t exist. My only option is apparently canceling my debit card, I bet they find my account then!
Version 5.4.6 crashing when unlocking iPhone
by This is Scott on 2019/06/21 18:38
I noticed very quickly after upgrading to 5.4.6 that very frequently when I'm listening and my iPhone screen locks that when I try to unlock it the SXM app briefly seems to freeze up the iPhone and then crashes and obviously stops therefore playing. Has this issue already been reported and is it being looked into? I'm using an iPhone 7 with iOS 10.3.3 still installed. This app is the only one having this issue. I use some other music streaming programs, podcast apps and I haven't seen this happen when using any of them. And it wasn't occurring in SXM neither before I upgraded it to this version. Other than this issue I enjoy the app when I have a subscription and don't have any other major issues with it at this time.
Streaming service fail
by Samandmarinasdad on 2020/01/10 05:49
I cancelled this service on the first day of my free trial. The content is news services you can get for free on iHeartRadio and garbage music channels that feel like podcasts. I have seen their full boat service in peoples cars and this isn’t even close to that. Don’t let the price point trick you all this content can be found for free on a number of other platforms. In addition when you try to log into your account online, their website needs you to give it a car vin number or a radio ID number which you don’t have with a streaming account. To cancel I had to engage in an online chat and have it done manually. When I told the agent that I couldn’t log in and why he said he was aware of the problem. This service is a cash grab to prop up their now antiquated service. It wasn’t worth it to me for free, to pay for it is ridiculous. Between Apple Music and iHeartRadio radio you get all of this with better service and more content.

Not bad
by Willmatic78 on 2020/08/11 15:59
I don’t like how the show reminders stop working after two weeks. Regardless if you have it set or not.
Robot
by Phil Frakes on 2020/08/11 12:45
You must have robots sitting around putting in 5 stars to get your rating this high because your app is terrible I have an iPhone 11 Pro and all I get is trying to connect all day every day it’s junk and I will not renew my subscription so don’t be mailing me all you so called deals. When you fix your crap I’ll come back.
APP is Garbage
by Frank1076 on 2020/08/10 21:47
It will either try to connect or buffer so bad that it’s unusable. I tried all the troubleshooting like reinstalling and turning my phone of and on. Tried it on WiFi and cell. Just doesn’t work. I did a little research online and found that this is a common problem and SiriusXM could care less. Don’t bother calling customer service. It’s a waste of time.
Retarded
by SexyManna on 2020/08/10 19:33
You people are retarded. It’s been MONTHS, and even after a couple of updates, I STILL CANT LOGIN!!!! You people are just completely incompetent or you outsourced your software to India like you outsourced your customer service to Jamaica. PATHETIC NOT RENEWING MY SUBSCRIPTION!!!!!!!!!
Not very good app
by postxup62 on 2020/08/10 17:15
The app in theory would be better then through the car ( better sound quality and only an extra delay of minute or two). Unfortunately, it is not a stable app and crashes all the time. They need to re do it from the ground up.
Missing features
by JeepRuby on 2020/08/10 16:48
Spotify has figured out how to add a 15 sec. skip to the Apple Watch. You have the option on the phone app. You need to give some love to Apple Watch users. It’s a pain to have to go to my phone, open it up, go to the app just to skip 15 seconds ahead.
No music
by Narefrinch on 2020/08/09 16:20
I paid for it and the app won’t download onto my phone.
Fixed login problem
by Vader6412 on 2020/08/09 16:19
So I’m still rating this app as 3 stars here for lack of communication on SiriusXM part. I seemed to fix my login problems so hope this helps for others but I had to change my username to get it to work. App seems to be working now on my iPhone and iPad. Shame I have to go that route just to log in.

Great Service!
by Usskywatch on 2020/08/07 03:47
Great service and music. I can finally listen to 80’s/90’s Country and Classic Country that I can’t get on my regular radio. DJ’s are great on Prime Country and Willie’s Roadhouse. Thank you for the great radio service!
App’s sound is muted when using Waze
by Xboxmia on 2020/08/07 01:09
I like the app but the current version has a bug when playing through bluetooth on my phone, when using waze with the sxm app the sound is muted when a voice command appears in waze. This makes me constantly be switching apps and pressing play on the sxm app.
Carplay is BROKEN
by DotPdf on 2020/08/06 22:29
You’d think that SiriusXM, the company that got huge for being in CARS, would make a superb carplay experience so you can enjoy on-demand and live episodes . . . in your CAR? Think again. The carplay app is broken and never loads. Shows never remember their playback position. It’s impossible to change channels easily while driving. I could go on. This app needs work if they want to ever get me to switch from Apple Music.
They won’t cancel my subscription.
by brb190 on 2020/08/06 21:50
I was never emailed my account number so they won’t let me cancel. I give them the only email address that I use and they say there’s no subscription attached to that email. They said they could use my card information to access my account so I gave them the numbers from my debit card for the bank account they’re charging and they say that it’s not the right card. They refuse to cancel my subscription. I’m going to have to go to my bank and have the payments cancelled to get away from this thing. There’s something shady about all of this.

Don’t even bother signing up using the Amazon Echo Dot promo because you won’t get the redemption code. I spoke with 3 customer care agents and none of them were helpful.
Really poor app performance
by Stlboz on 2020/08/06 04:51
Regularly loses episodes of favorited shows. Sometimes I will pause a show, try to play after 5 minutes and the episode is no longer available. I joined for Howard Stern, but if it weren’t for The Bonfire on Comedy Central 95, I would stop renewing my subscription. But The Bonfire is too good to miss. Please fix the performance of your app for on demand episodes.
Just kicked me out
by Mella925 on 2020/08/05 20:48
This used to be one of my favorite go to apps but recently I been kicked out and can’t log back on. It’s weird because it work when I login on line. It’s just the app that doesn’t recognize me.. and unfortunately I can’t listen online. I’m ready to cancel this subscription to many issues.
Unstable
by lyon88 on 2020/08/05 20:09
Good when it works, but it’s usually not loading or playing even when on Wi-Fi.
App is broken?
by HungRocks on 2020/08/05 16:55
Cannot sign in and listen to music on the app! Satellite radio in the car works fine.
Login Failures
by R+(M)=xo on 2020/08/04 17:39
Wasted time twice with SiriusXM Support and they don’t know what they are doing and still can’t login to App. Sad when their marketing is heavy on how wonderful they are....yet NOT WORKING. One star for wasting lots of time. One star for inept support. One star for bad software.
Can’t log into app

Can’t log into app since 07/25/20. Log in info hasn’t changed. Can log into account online, just not onto app.
This app is horrid
by Odog! on 2020/08/03 16:48
App constantly does not show episodes, shows glitch
Can't activate/view account info
by WgIan100 on 2020/08/03 10:12
To find your account number you need to input your account number. They don't mention it in activation email sent to you. You'll need to call them for this. Waste of time and money. This is totally illogical method without any alternative.
Search Doesn’t Work!
by Cyclingbrother on 2020/08/02 15:17
I got tired of Spotify, wanted an awesome DJ! Listen to Lithium religiously... but, the search is messed up. Try to look up crap and it says nothing? Fix your bugs, bro! Thanks...

Disappointed
by Britz2 on 2020/07/30 14:39
The App for iPhone works fine for my use and purpose, however it’s horrible on my PC! Playback keeps stopping with a pop up message; “you are signed in on another device keep listening? YES/NO” .... I select yes and it continually keeps stopping and displaying the same message over and over and over again. I assume the other device the message is referring to is my Amazon Echo Dot with (Alexa). I should not have to keep disconnecting Alexa just to hear SiriusXM on my PC. It should not make any difference how many devices I’m signed in on. Until this glitch is fixed I stick with one star.
Nothing
by STEELCAT92 on 2020/07/30 12:25
I have tried to sign into this app multiple times and it will not load!
Love it... but
by drew1461 on 2020/07/29 20:45
The app itself is awesome and it’s great that I can listen to all the same stuff as a normal subscription with a streaming package but the Apple CarPlay application is where I listen to it 99% of the time and the application for CarPlay definitely needs work.
They can’t keep my sign on
by Monkeyassmfers on 2020/07/29 14:24
They keep emailing me advertising about streaming on your phone or computer. EVERY time I try to sign in their system does not recognize my credentials. I’ve registered more than once because of this. It is a huge waste of time.
Does not play well with CarPlay
by Ronald42 on 2020/07/28 11:01
Does not play well with CarPlay. 10% chance it will work with CarPlay on the first, second, third, ..., infinite tries.
Favorites Not Working

When I star a favorite, it doesn’t save it and it doesn’t show up in my Favorites bar
Horrible!
by DJ Lewinski on 2020/07/27 21:38
They have no way to cancel membership online so you have to wait hours to speak with some one to cancel then they charge you for service you don’t use. Scam do not get!
scam-ISH
by SirMatt93 on 2020/07/27 04:18
I do understand that this dam-ned world is mostly all about the cash.... HOWEVER.... it still Truly Pi$$EZ ME OFF that you SiriusXM folk don’t feel like it’s enough that you RULE your niche! NO, NO!! Still, you say, “let’s really screw with ‘em..[hee-hee!].. We’ll make it so that, for the Great Sin of wanting/needing to unsubscribe, a person will have to jump thru some proverbial ‘hoops’. She/he will NOT be ALLOWED to unsub on the phone app, nor even on a phone-based browser! NOPE! Once she/he is able to FIND the HIDDEN DIRECTIONS, s/he will learn that s/he must: EITHER wait until s/he is at a PC & use its browser, completing several more ridiculous steps; OR s/he may elect to make a FV€£iNG PHONE-CALL!! We will make MILLIONS MORE DOLLAR$!!” Other than that, yes, the app, itself, is actually worth 5-Stars.🤬 PEACE!✌️😎

Please Fix This Now!
by STG1026 on 2020/07/26 15:15
NO EXCUSE! GOOD GRIEF- GET THIS FIXED!!!! I pay for All Access and SirusXm suddenly and no longer works on iPads or through my Sonos system. It is obviously a mobile app issue, taje care of it! I can no longer listen to SirusXM at home now and will be dropping the additional All Access cost if this does not get handled. It will not even allow customers to log on and it has been going on too long! I have been patient but have had enough. With so many working from home these days what horrible public relations- that could have actually been a wonderful business opportunity... instead, no, with Sirus still getting their money each month there's no need to care. Sadly just another unregulated industry doing what they do best.
Xtra channels won’t work
by akent82 on 2020/07/25 21:19
I’ve loved having the ability to listen to the xtra channels on the app, but since the update they don’t work. I’ll get maybe through one song before it stops playing and says “trying to connect”. I’ve deleted the app and reinstalled, tried on and off WiFi, nothing works. Fix now please!!
Where’s the Apple Watch App?
by martinpbg on 2020/07/25 09:22
🤷 This is a satellite radio, no Apple Watch app out there?! Please fix this! The phone app is nice and makes the radio available on the go which is great!
Cannot log in....again

Latest update fixed button functionality
by AsleepT on 2020/07/24 22:12
Prior updates had broken rewind button and the scrubbing backwards/forwards button, thanks to support techs for fixing this. I’m not going to update this ever again. :)
Falling short and getting paid.
by Pfiggy on 2020/07/24 05:55
First time long time. This may not pertain to you as a reader. Upon my review; for my Sirius XM update. Read the following as the reason: To improve my ad relevance. I pay for this, yes ads are there. I know the value of a hard earned buck. I pay for data. And when I have to do an upload. I do as most without a passing thought. But data has limits and sometimes you have to choose which app you can upload. So, two questions an observation and food for thought. Would not it be in my best to remove as many ads as possible and just give me content? Why should I use my data for ad relevance? Make me WANT TO NEED TO. Make it a reason or be like most and boiler plate. Regardless, still update apps when I see boiler plate. Long as what you get from that app/service is worth it. In a climate of change and introspect it’s easy to lose focus and get short sighted. It’s life. Bababooey
Can’t sign in
by Lore132 on 2020/07/24 04:06
I’ve had an Amazon FireStick for five years. I’ve down loaded SiriusXM as a result of a free trial offer. All was going almost perfectly but sometimes Sirius would have to buffer. I was told that my older FireStick probably needed to be replaced. I bought a new FireStick and thought the problem solved. However, I cannot sign on with the new FireStick. My sign on and password are correct. My Wi-Fi is strong but nothing. I spent all morning with various SiriusXM “troubleshooters” with no results. I will not purchase a plan. It upsetting because I was really enjoying it.
Getting worse
by Bv0312 on 2020/07/24 04:04
More and more “breaks” between songs to talk about other channels or promos on SiriusXM. It is still not anywhere near the amount on FM radio, but it’s getting longer. As far as the app, it too is becoming not usable. No connection errors yet all my other data services work fine, favorites erase by themselves and become out of order from how I listed them. This isn’t reliable anymore...when the app won’t play, I usually change over to Apple Music or Amazon Music app and start a radio station there.

Service blows
by mb194911 on 2020/07/23 18:13
I said I’d pass up this offer because customer service was so aggravating but that Toyota Pizza Ship didn’t have the CD player that was part of RAV4 XSE Pkg. I paid for so I tried it out signed up Sirius started using my credit Card to make unauthorized payments that bounced causing bank fees and penalties. I need a Vendor to tell me when a free trail is about to expire. I’ve tried to them about unauthorized use of my credit card listened to of my favorite artist today and will give it another trail
Unable to login
by Swimbikerun400 on 2020/07/23 16:01
Just keeps “loading” at the long page, cannot login. Alexa functionality also broken. Have been told it’s a “technical” issue and is being worked on, but it’s been a week and everything worked great a week ago.
Very mediocre
by Tmac9wr on 2020/07/23 15:44
The app force crashes multiple times a day, and randomly erased all my ‘favorited’ shows & channels from time to time. I’m not sure how such a pedestrian app can have such a high average rating. I’ve had this problem over both Android and iOS, over multiple phones on each platform, so I can’t imagine I’m the only one experiencing these issues.
2 logins per account
by shawn89711 on 2020/07/23 12:45
Why can’t we have 2 logins per account. My wife listens to e street radio and when I am listening on my phone she can not listen because of this b.s. limit you created. At least allow this if the users are on the same Wi_Fi. If I am at work and using the app she can not listen to anything on Sirius xm. Developers please listen to the users fix this issue. I do not want another subscription I pay for a radio in my car already. All this company is a money grabbing company.
Timeout or crash. Please fix playback
by Not a wb on 2020/07/23 04:46
I can’t rewind unless I’ve been listening in the background. I can’t skip commercials with normal scrubbing on a playback interface. I can only go to live. Surely the iOS app can be just as capable as the hardware you’ve been making for years. Thank you for the extra channels but since the update, iOS, macOS, and web clients either time out or expire WAY too fast. I paid to listen without needing to hit refresh. Please keep it that way. That aside, keep up the great work.
Horrible!
by No for you on 2020/07/22 23:41
This update is horrible! Unlimited data have this in 4 rides and on my phone and computer and 3 tablets and it won’t stream for more than 15 minutes then says off line! Horrible
Glitchy plus sync issues
by VincebusMaximusII on 2020/07/22 22:02
I won’t mention all the glitches others have already covered. One irritating thing for me is that when selecting multiple homepods for output, it almost never syncs the stream on the first or even second time. I found that you have to select two homepods, and if the stream is not synced, turn them off, revert to phone for output, then try speakers again. I know it’s not my network or the homepods because ALL of my other audio apps sync perfectly on the first try.
Battery drain
by willard311 on 2020/07/22 18:53
I’ve been using Sirius over 10 years this app is still garbage. The last version was unstable I would have to re add my favorites every week. This version is a huge battery drain. I used to be able to listen all day no battery problems, the last week my battery dies after about 2 hours of listening. This needs to be fixed ASAP
So poorly designed. Hard to use. The only reason I keep this going is for

Listen all day, multiple channels, on my iPad sending it to my Home Pod. At various points will just stop sending signal to the Home Pod. I switch over to Apple Music and it works fine. Use Safari to play, works fine. Use local music, works fine. Just the Sirius app. Restart the iPad, starts working again. Please fix

Jacked up again
by krisreese on 2020/07/20 13:50
Here is another update that has jacked up the app. I usually listen to shows after the fact and have been able to go 5 hours back in time which USED to be the case with the online app. As of today it appears that I can’t go backwards. I hope this is a temporary problem. It made me angry when this was done to the online app but if the phone app forces me to only be able to go to the beginning of the current show, it will be the last straw and I will cancel my subscription.
Just sticks

Saved shows don’t always play
by srp1222 on 2020/07/18 12:48
Close to half of the time, saved shows will not play. The app will open but the little wheel keeps spinning and nothing happens. Also, my favorite shows have a tendency to disappear every week or two. Very frustrating!

Glitchiest App in App Store
by Zaggott on 2020/07/16 20:06
Constantly having to uninstall/reinstall the app to be able to listen to music. The app always loses my place when I’m listening to Howard Stern. Some episodes are available one minute and then unavailable the next. Frequently deletes my saved episodes. Having to restart my phone to get the app to work at all. Can’t connect via WiFi or LTE sometimes, with the app stating that there’s no internet available (other apps and SpeedTest indicate that I have a fine connection via either WiFi or LTE.) Just a very frustrating app. I’m leaving this review after spending FIFTEEN minutes trying to TRICK the app into working for me. I gave up after uninstalling, reinstalling, and restarting my phone twice. I’m not exaggerating when I say this is the worst app I’ve ever had to use. They’re holding Howard Stern hostage by being the only content provider that has him. And they know it. So they’re not motivated to fix the app. For $140 every 6 months, it’d be amazing if the app worked half as well as Candy Crush.
Crap
by acruz83 on 2020/07/16 14:16
Doesn’t even let me login. It keeps saying it doesn’t recognize my username or password.
Just updated. Big mistake.
by Danp 97 on 2020/07/16 04:56
I just updated the app to the latest version. The one with the “bug fixes.” Now it doesn’t work at all. It tells me I’m offline, which is not true. I see from recent reviews that others have the same problem. I’ve restarted my iPad, still no luck. Come on! Get this fixed, even if you have to roll back to a previous version.
No I'm NOT "Offline!
by RealEstateZealot on 2020/07/16 04:56
RN who loves to listen to Urban View "on demand" in middle of the night to relax (in a pandemic!). Terribly disappointed when PAID (many years!) SiriusXM app STOPS PLAYING + says I need to "connect to internet". How do you keep updating BUT NEVER FIX SAME BUG??
Great content horrible app
by BigRed717 on 2020/07/16 04:46
Getting tired of having to force close app and reopen 10 times a day when listening. Plus daily system crashes around 12am thru 2am eastern time is getting annoying. Instead of paying out a special dividend fix your system to avoid these interruptions. Getting close to canceling service
Fake reviews
by guy on 2020/07/16 02:58
I’m calling out all the recent reviews stating the app doesn’t work etc as fake. The app has and does work fine and is actually really nice. And now that they are venturing into the podcast arena it’s only going to get more use! Stern, music, podcasts, sports, Netflix comedy channel, new pop up channels regularly etc. etc...wow talk about keeping people listening, a lot of great stuff always on and continuously over the entire country via their satellites. Tune in and stay awhile, you won’t look back.
Unreliable
by JJ1130 on 2020/07/15 21:32
This app is awesome when and if it works correctly. If I had an alternative way to listen to the shows I frequent I would. Constantly clears out favorites. Won’t allow me to find the shows I like after it deletes my favorites.. just overall not that great.They’re lucky the bonfire is worth dealing with the non stop issues
Can’t login!
by Megess on 2020/07/15 15:35
I just tried logging into the app for the first time. I thought I was giving the wrong using name and password so I went on my computer and changed both. I came back to the app and tried again and it still wouldn’t log me in! Why do xm stations always promote this app when it doesn’t work!?

Cancelling is extremely difficult, good luck!

No streaming app makes it that difficult to cancel, no reason why you should have to call and speak to a rep for something as simple as a cancellation. 👎
Can’t log in

by Vinrock71 on 2020/07/13 20:39
Another update, another fail. Still can’t log in. Has been this way for over a month. Customer service is a nightmare to deal with. Tried to delete and reinstall the app and nothing.
App hasn’t worked for over a month! FIX IT ALREADY!!!
by SL_2020 on 2020/07/13 18:26
I would think during a time where many people are working from home and could be listening to the app, it would be top priority for a company to make sure their app is working. Very frustrated, will likely cancel my subscription if not fixed soon since I rarely drive my car anymore.
This app has so many issues
by Patrick in Eastie on 2020/07/13 18:13
This app continues to be very buggy. It forgets all your favorite shows routinely, and has done so for years now. It forgets your quality settings. Sometimes it randomly insists “the date on your device appears to be in the past” and refuses to let you listen. And if you dare open the app on one of your other devices, your stream will come to a screeching halt because how dare you, you paying customer. The app also lacks simple features like a 15-second back button on the lock screen. SiriusXM has a lot of great content, but the app can be wildly frustrating, and their heavy-handed content management will probably annoy anyone with more than one device.
Bugs
by Way to many ads on 2020/07/13 12:55
Still a lot of bugs to work out. App will randomly freeze and crash. Every couple of days it deletes ALL my downloads with no warning. When it works, it’s great, but it doesn’t work reliably for too long.
Good programming. awful app
by macront on 2020/07/12 14:35
I am grateful for the programming that SiriusXM offers. The variety of news and music programming is quite remarkable. However, the app is terrible.I am beyond surprised that the average of reviews is 4.8 stars. The interface is awkward. I like to listen live, and when the app opens, it does not open in that mode. It is often difficult to find the button to press to 'go live', and when you find and press the button often you do not go live anyway, or it takes several minutes for the program to begin. Sometimes, like today, the app is telling me that I am listening live to Meet the Press, but it is actually playing a program from Friday. It is really unfortunate that SiriusXM does not have an interest in improving the app. We have to use it, because it is the only way to listen from a mobile device, but it is a loser and often provides a frustrating experience.
Last update caused volume differences
by Fan1k on 2020/07/11 21:03
I am primarily an octane listener. The last update created a big difference between DJ volume and music volume. DJ is much louder than music and have to turn down the volume after every song. Please fix! 7/11 - Last update still did not fix volume differences between DJ and music. DJ Volume twice as loud as music
Thanks, but No Thanks.
by ZJG11990 on 2020/07/11 17:47
Thanks, but no thanks. I can only listen to XM in the car. I’m hardly ever get to use it on my phone. It automatically makes me sign in every time I open the app, then will sit there at the loading screen (all day if I let it). Unsuccessful with shutting it down and logging in again. Constant loading. Same goes for Apple TV. I’m sticking with easier apps, where you can simply Log in and Listen. SmH.
Cancellation is terrible
by Anhthuynh on 2020/07/11 13:45

Issue with SiriusXM in CarPlay... PLEASE FIX!!
by joshtowens on 2020/07/10 21:28
In the last 3 updates for this app SiriusXM will not work properly in CarPlay, it only shows up ONE channel within each category. Where’s the rest of the channels???? I love SiriusXM but am seriously considering unsubscribing from the service until this issue is fix. Haven’t had a good experience dealing with their AWFUL customer service either.
Won’t log me in?!?

CarPlay in iOS12 still broken
by Smiffleblurf on 2018/10/10 05:01
I purchased an unlimited cellular Internet subscription to use this app in CarPlay instead of using my actual SiriusXM antenna on my car — THATS’s how much I like using this app. The last redesign was an amazing step forward. I dreaded updating to iOS 12 and sure enough the app on CarPlay wouldn’t load any of my favorites and recents. Even after this recent CarPlay fix update it didn’t fix much. Recents list still doesn’t load at all. When I still pull up my channel favorites it’ll either never load or have this long delay until it loads or I have to dangerously open the app on my phone to jumpstart it to load. I did notice once I was able to get the channels to load in favorites the recents tab finally loaded up, but still that’s an awkward bug. Just really bad loading issues in regards to displaying listed information in CarPlay all around. Hopefully a fix is coming soon so that I don’t have to use a one star review to report a bug, but the one star is well earned when the “App Support” link takes you to a FAQ site that doesn’t list this issue or a bug reporting option for this app. This app isn’t even listed on the Contact Us support options. This whole experience is adding misanthropy fuel.
Serve a 2nd vehicle for free, or use as a fix for an obstructed antenna

By purchasing the high end SiriusXM service for one satellite receiver, you get this excellent streaming capability as a free bonus. If you have a smartphone with a decent data plan, you don’t need to increase satellite charges by adding a subscription for the other vehicle(s). Get it for one, then use your phone to stream the web based service thru the Bluetooth or cable connection to the audio system in your additional vehicle(s). It’s a terrific bargain for me, as I have 2 cars and two RV’s, and I can get full channel service for all four with just one subscription. Also, for those with vehicles (like my truck camper) that have difficulty getting a clear usable obstruction-free sat signal for their partially shadowed antenna, you can subscribe to service for the vehicle radio, then when in conditions when your antenna isn’t reliable, switch to using your smartphone for streaming to that radio from the same sat account via cell service providers. Thanks SiriusXM for offering this excellent, flexible service at a fair package price!
I Love Channel 90 so I bought Premium Pkg
by RealTennesseeMcCoy on 2020/04/05 16:13
I am huge racing fan and especially L❤️VE NASCAR and LeMann racing fan. I began listening to XM Radio my 2005 BMW X-5 and I’ve had it ever since. Now, SirusXm Radio, Initially, I only listened to channel 90 Nascar Radio. Over years I have listened to ESPN OR Fox SportS during college football season. We have it in all 4 cars and two of the tractors. I had not deeply explored other channels until I begin using the app on my mobile device when I’m mowing in Spring amd Summer 12-16 hours a week. They even have workout music by the decade and most recently added Indy Channel, with hosts, Jack Arute and AJ Allmendinger ! Call and they will negotiate a price with you. Only one warning..if you give a credit card number they will auto renew every year. I did not like that and it took a month for them to understand I would either be billed at home the old fashioned way- or cancel. Auto renew takes away a locked in price. They renew at market price.. which was always double the rate I got when I called or this last period I did online via chat session.
Great App
by TaxisLatka on 2019/02/08 22:43
NEW REVIEW (Feb. 2019): Another quick fix to the annoying download issue. Great response. App is back to working great. OLD REVIEW (Feb. 2019): The new update is awful. It’s now back to the same issue of downloaded shows not opening from the last place they were being listened to. You can listen to a downloaded show for two hours and then when you go back to the app instead of it saving your place and continuing playing where it was, it goes back to some previous point at the very beginning of the show. Very annoying and it’s happened before. Thought they had it worked out but now this issue is back. Please fix as soon as possible as this makes the app almost unusable. Wish I never updated. Should’ve stuck with the last version that actually worked. Very angry. OLD REVIEW (2018): Love the updated app. It’s the best. The addition of video is pretty cool, but the Stern Shows are loaded fast (usually same afternoon). Had an issue with holding place of downloaded shows, but it appears to have been resolved. A+
Too many bugs
by DJ Joey G on 2019/09/03 21:23
I have MANY apps on my phone and this one has to be one of the most unreliable. Too many issues to list here but the top two that make me crazy are #1 It stops working randomly mid shows, doesn't matter if its while listening to an on demand episode, a download or live. The app would go into a never ending loading state or just crash completely. #2 the most annoying and dangerous bug is when the app randomly starts playing in my pocket at the worst times. I listen to some XL rated shows with adult language and these shows that i haven't listened to for a few hours or sometimes haven't listened to that day at all will just start playing, full volume, in my pocket. The app is not running so i cant even kill it, i have to frantically turn the volume down then go into my control center and pause it. Its gotten to the point where if i’m going into certain places i have to turn my volume all the way down because i cant trust the app to not start playing, or i need to make sure the last thing i listen to is “safe”....Also when my phone connects to the bluetooth in my vehicles it just starts playing if i want it to or not, again the app isn't even running. Its ridiculous.....
God help you if . . . . . . Update
by Queenbeedlg on 2018/06/01 14:24
Like me, you use your iPad in landscape mode. I’ve changed every relevant setting I can think of to get this app to load in landscape mode (as it once did prior to one of the latest updates) but, alas, to no avail. This is so much of a problem that saving the $20 a month I pay for this service is under serious consideration. It’s too much money to pay for the inconvenience of having to turn my iPad 90 degrees to read the app. I would have given it less than one star had that been possible. Update: I’m happy to report that the people at Sirius were listening and have addressed this landscape vs. portrait mode problem. It’s nice to know that there are still some companies out there who listen to their customer’s complaints and respond to them positively, especially in such a short period of time. Happily, I will not have to cancel my subscription, and I can recommend this app without reservation at a solid 5 stars.
No landscape mode; update horrible for RadioClassics
by PetiteFrog on 2018/06/07 23:02
UPDATE: Thanks for adding the landscape mode back - although why on earth was it removed in the first place??? I have upgraded my rating from 1 star to 3 stars. What would give it one more star - display the times of the previously played RadioClassic shows. I have no idea what played when. You provide the option to listen to earlier shows, but the segments aren’t descriptive enough so I am having to go through all of them to find the show I want to listen to. PREVIOUS REVIEW: As others have stated, not having the ability to view using landscape mode is very annoying. However, not nearly as annoying and useless as what the upgrade has done to the RadioClassics station. Before the update, I could see all the programs that played in the past 5 or 6 hours and select one of those shows - easily. Now —- you can’t see the time a previous show was played and have to guess which item it is in the viewable segments. Viewing all the segments is nearly impossible. No way to easily see and select earlier segments. The upgrade has made the RadioClassics stations impossible to navigate.
CarPlay buggy, no chrome cast support but good sound quality
by Cypherstream on 2018/10/25 02:17
So glad they recently added Apple CarPlay, however it’s very buggy. Many times favorites don’t load, recents may not load, or the car play screen is just blank. It does work better if you unlock your phone first, but who can do that if your driving and have your phone put down (it auto locks fairly quickly). What is wrong with SiriusXM not offering chromecast functionality? It seems this would be the easiest way to get SXM in your house. To be able to chrome cast SXM would be a great asset to listen at home when doing household work. Other than the very buggy CarPlay support and lack of Chromecast feature, the sound quality is far better than what you get on the actual satellite. You also have access to many more channels and on demand content. This is why I prefer to use the app via CarPlay instead of my cars built in XM tuner. My car only goes up to channels in the 200’s. The app has channels into the 700’s! I’m no longer missing out on Faction or the Emo Project, indie 1.0, or Rock Bar. If only CarPlay worked all the time, this would be a killer app.
Favorites won’t save & keep getting deleted
by Food Jock on 2020/06/18 20:38
Does Sirius even read these user reviews and care about customer service? For 2 months all my favorites keep getting deleted. Lately it seems to occur almost daily, sometimes even twice in a day. Before that it had been every couple weeks. I’ve seen other reviews claiming the same thing. Do you even read the user reviews? Last month I even sent a Feedback email to tech support reporting the issue and was given a response that they will reply back within 24 hrs. Nope. Nothing. Not even a follow up. And meanwhile, the problem has gotten worse and it’s very time consuming to constantly go back & forth re adding shows to the favorites list. In addition, 3 times in the past week and as recently as last night, I haven’t been able to access anything because the app keeps saying “we’re sorry but you seem to be offline. Please check your WiFi connection or try again later.” There’s been absolutely nothing wrong with my internet & WiFi. This used to be my favorite app and I use it daily mostly for MLB Radio. But lately this app has been horrible and I’m paying too much money for an annual subscription to put up with this crap.
New features but lacking polish
by drew_petricc on 2018/11/08 20:01
Lots of glitz and glamour over the new features, & call me crazy, but it actually seems *harder* to just get to my downloaded shows now... Also, if there’s something that looks cool on my home page, better remember it or keep swiping b/c it just scrolls away after a few seconds... sure it’s good to show the different options, but annoying. It also seems to have obfuscated which is actually a new show, or even to just get to what is actually playing live on 100 now. For all its faults, this was not an issue with the old version. All this complaining aside I do like the new app and addition of video clips etc. I’m just looking forward to some revision with usability/ease of use in mind—so keep it up dev team!! Thanks for a great app, I will change to five stars when updated! I do like the more streamlined way to manage/delete downloads and the addition of forward and backward skipping by a few seconds (which was sorely needed). So it’s great & I love it—that’s why I’m saying it just needs a few revisions to be the best in my opinion, thanks.
The more I spend time with this..
by Phantom2089 on 2018/05/14 23:02
The more I’m regretting my app update for it. Why would you fix something that was not broken?? I really hate this new update. There are more cons to point out than pro’s on this! Con: -No mix customizations (BIG NO!) -No info description on each channel and shows within that channel, nor do they provide twitter/phone number to call in the radio channel! -adding favorites just doesn’t work. -backtracking only goes so much as 3 hrs instead of 6 hrs. -there’s no schedule for when upcoming shows are going to broadcast. -channel freezes and locks if your app ended up foreclosing on you or you foreclose the app. (I was always able to resume where I left off EVEN when I foreclosed it, now it makes me lose my place wherever I’m in. REALLY FRUSTRATING ESPECIALLY WITH GRATEFUL DEAD CONCERTS!!!!) -no bright/dim light interface option, I hate how bright this design is now, especially late at night. -takes longer to connect to audio when it used to not on data connection. Pro’s: -Video on-demand for Howard Stern -audio scroller is a bit easier when you want to rewind or fast forward a lot. And that’s all the pros that’s on this app. You have got some MAJOR EDITING to BRING BACK some of the old WITH the new! I feel like my subscription has just plummeted to a mediocre service, I’m really debating on cancelling if they don’t bring back and improve their main qualities of their app. BRING BACK THE OLD APP!!!
Something w/accessibility for all ages.
by lil'fyre on 2019/11/17 23:15
I LOVE Apple Play, don’t get me wrong!! And unfortunately in some newer cars you’ll have to pay for the feature of have Apple Play. I can only assume it’s because the Xirius option is as basic as it can get. Normally, that’s nothing to be bothered about (I’ll just pay for the dealership to ‘install Apple Play’). The eye opener for me was when I bought my now favorite modern car; A 2019 Hyundai Kona. It came with both higher ends of both media options. At first I stuck to what I knew, Apple Play. But the I started leaving Apple Play off, and realizing how much I was enjoying Xirius and the huge variety they offered. And, the price for a subscription was insanely good for all it has (you can customize what you want as well). My favorite is being able the listen to whatever I was, in the car, and picking it up again via my phone, or tablet. Thanks for making options for consumers!!!
Sirisously Addicted
by Cindy.Curl.Beye.Iowa on 2018/09/05 14:10
I can no longer listen to regular FM radio. I love my Sirius. Wish you would have done more of a tribute to David Cassidy. A channel for a short time in his honor would be amazing. At the same time, 70’s On 7 should be playing more of David’s stuff from his solo albums, as well as Partridge Family recordings; definitely not enough of the latter, and absolutely none of the forbearing. David broke many records for various things in his career, which widely go unrecognized. I was really disappointed to see no periodicals in his memory, especially a Rolling Stones mag dedication. Such a talented artist should be remembered. I also enjoy 60’s On 6 to get my Mad Men fix; love your regular morning DJ - he’s been everywhere! Cowboy Bob & the 40’s Channel are greatly appreciated when I’m missing my grandparents. I also use the Toddler Channel a lot for my grandchildren. And when I’m feeling a little blue, it’s wonderful that I can listen Christmas music any time of the year to cheer me up! Any chance we could have a Dean Martin channel for a short while? Frank’s channel don’t play him enough. What a legend! And believe it or not, Lawrence Welk still has a huge fan base that tunes in to Public TV every Saturday night to watch his reruns... The Welk Channel, at least during the holidays ? Love you guys. Never go away! Sincerely, Faithful Subscriber Cindy Beye Marshall County, Iowa
Great new redesign, some suggestions
by Nelson Ned on 2019/03/30 19:42
UPDATE: Happy that you quickly fixed the landscape iPad issue. CarPlay app is kind of a hot mess. When it works it shows there is tremendous potential for it. But alas, it doesn’t always work. Sometimes it just refuses to stream or update or show anything really. Then there is the sporadic but extremely annoying display of channels and favorites. Often it will only show the first couple of pages of channels and favorites. You can’t see any of the higher numbered channels or favorites that are on the later pages. This is super annoying and I really wish this would be fixed. Finally, Apple Watch app with stand-alone playback on cellular. Please, please, please with a cherry on top. OLD REVIEW: I’m very happy with the performance and new design. It has been working great. Hopefully you bring landscape mode to iPad as the newest version doesn’t have it. Also I really hope you consider an Apple Watch compatible app. Nothing would compliment my cellular Apple Watch more than being able to stream Sirius XM on it. Your UI wouldn’t have to be that complicated. A simple way to select stations and pause, play, volume, favorites, etc. Come on guys and gals. I know you can make this happen. Also I’m having an issue with my favorites not showing all the stations on all devices. My iPhone seems to show them all but my iPad does not. Hopefully the synchronization of favorite stations across all devices can be fixed.
Volume Bar?
by Lwmavrik on 2017/12/21 21:07
Nice app for the most part, but some silly omissions...Volume Bar for iPad?..., iPhone has it...albeit flawed...it needs to stay on the screen permanently and be further down so you don’t run into the other bar above it that handles rew/ff.... I waited for years for a last channel "jump to" button so you can quickly toggle between two channels?!? Recent‘s from the latest update covers that... it’s about time! I have felt for years like the people who develop this app never use it, because if you’ve ever used a television remote control in your life an A/B button and the volume button is what you use the most and if you haven’t noticed, the volume buttons on phones are often not so easy, particularly if you have a case on it! Thus the volume needs to stay on the LCD screen at all times not appear and disappear ...once you have touched the button on the side, why would you then need to then slide over to the one that appears on the screen.. it’s moronic!! Someone needs to make more of an effort and this can be 5 stars!
Downloads DO NOT WORK
by edbeaton on 2018/06/01 23:14
What’s the point of having a download feature if I still need a connection?? I’ve downloaded on-demand episodes, and they played back fine, until I lost my cell/WiFi signal (my commute includes areas w slow to no connection for stretches). So to me this means that the app is not accessing whatever file is downloaded locally to the phone, and I’m using data to access something I supposedly downloaded to use later. Downloads in previous versions were buggy (also looked for data connection), but I eventually was able to get to episodes already downloaded. Please fix this!!! Update: so the top complaint (landscape on iPad) is fixed, but downloads still don’t work. Yes the downloads complete (didn’t have that issue previously), but you CAN’T ACCESS the “downloaded” files. I get the spinning icon over the play button when selected from the downloads folder (buried in the settings area as ppl have complained about before) and essentially freeze the app. Who do I have to call to get reimbursed for all the data I’m burning through since I can’t download over WiFi to then listen later???
Something has changed!
by B& aid on 2020/01/31 09:23
I have been an XM Radio listener for years and my favorite channel is Radio Classics. I have used the app for years to catch up on content I might have missed. The app used to work well for listening to shows that had already aired. However, after they added Pandora features to the XM app, the app became unreliable. Before, switching from segment to segment worked well and the skip forward feature worked well. Now however, as you near the end of one segment, you can no longer reliably click on a different story segment and have the app react.... the sound just stops and you get a spinning wheel. Nothing happens. You can close the app and restart it sometimes to get it to work but here lately, even that is not working. I even deleted the app and re-installed but no joy. This has become exceedingly frustrating and totally ruins one of the main benefits of subscribing to the digital content service. I wish companies would more thoroughly test their updates before “breaking” perfectly good applications.
This App is Lame
by MSTampaFL on 2020/05/22 01:28
No matter how many updates they release, this app is still a PIECE OF JUNK. And I'm tired of being polite about it. First, the saved on-demand favorites randomly disappear causing me to have to re-save them. Sometimes a reboot will bring them back, sometimes not. This bug has been in the last 3 or 4 versions. Also, the app won't "let go" of what I was listening to before to go to live or another choice. Example, listening to an on-demand news episode and then wanting to go to the live channel, the wheel just spins and spins and the eventually goes back to the main menu with the prior show still stuck in the player. Shutting down the app and restarting doesn't fix it. And there is no longer a go "Live" button in the on-demand GUI. The only workaround I've found is that you have to change to another channel and then go back to the channel you want in order for the player to clear and "let go" of what you were previously listening to. Is there some excuse SiriusXM can't hire competent developers to fix this app? Especially since we pay extra to use it???
Not crazy about the update
by missjubilada on 2018/05/16 17:18
I use this app all the time and I’m really frustrated by some of the changes in the update. It’s fine for listening to music but I also love the Radio Classics channel and the update is horrible for that. You used to be able to see the past few hours of individual shows, as well as the upcoming few hours of individual shows. Now all it shows is the past 45 minutes or so and the title of the hours long “Radio Classics” or “ When Radio Was” but not the individual programs being broadcast. And shows what commercials are played during that 45 minutes. Who would care about that?! It also used to let you choose individual programs as favorites to star ( The Jack Benny Program or Suspense, for example). Now the only options appear to be the 2 Radio Classics or When Radio Was shows ( which consist of several hours of individual programs that seem to be impossible to see within the app now). Why would an update provide fewer features than the old version ? Very frustrating. Please fix.
Free at Last!
by Fadiddle on 2019/07/18 00:49
With all the other great providers of streaming music that are free out there, this was the best thing they could have done. We are already paying for the service, and requiring additional payment like it was before for the streaming service, you turned many people away. Not just from streaming but from your service altogether. That would be like my internet service saying I had to pay for service on each device that was connected to the same service, I was already paying for. Glad y’all were able to buy pandora and work it out for us(the paying customers) to enjoy your service the way it should be; “Anyway we want to enjoy it, Anywhere we want to enjoy it.” Keep doing business like this, and you’ll not only have me as a loyal customer, but many, many more!
Great once you you can get what they promise.
by papasprep on 2018/09/01 00:15
I have loved having SiriusXM. I received it as a gift from my daughter so I could listen to baseball. With it, I can hear our beloved Cleveland Indians from my home in New England. (We lived in northeast Ohio for 17 years.). Problem was it took days and several calls to get what my daughter paid for. The station I needed didn’t come in on my radio and it seemed to be quite a problem to get it to work. Worse yet, my husband on a totally different account tried to add the Indians station, and while SiriusXM was quick to charge him for the extra station, they failed to let him know that for some reason his brand new car had the wrong type of radio to get the higher stations. (He already has a basic XM radio package, so still have no clue what the issue was.) The reps that help are very nice, but it should be as easy to get the stations you are looking for, as it is for the XM folk to take your money.
Horribly Unstable
by SoFar87 on 2018/04/18 11:16
This app is a disaster. Continually has issues saying it cannot determine my location so it won’t load. Which makes no sense as my WiFi and cellular networks are working perfectly. Live in a major city and never have other app issues when this happens. Definitely happens more after a recent update which always seems to make things worse. The volume bar is hidden and the scrolling is terrible because the bar is too small and not sensitive at all. I clearly have no clue how their QA development team tests the app in real world scenarios and things is production ready. In fairness there are some great features (when the app works) and the UI is pretty decent. But some of the basic functionality for volume, scrolling within an stream like Howard Stern, and overall application stability are a disaster. Sirius has no competition. They clearly Need to just focus on the basics of building a rock solid app and stop with all the gimmick junk. Subscriber since their beginning but very disappointed they continue to ruin this app. And for the record, these issues happen on a brand new iPhone X.
Sometimes it works
by Thome258 on 2019/11/06 13:06
This app has to be the worst app for issues. Sometimes it works fine then they update it and it never fails that it causes issues. If you email customer service you get the same response every time. They tell you to delete the app and reinstall it. I don’t want to have to do that at least once a month because then I lose all the shows I’ve downloaded . I don’t have unlimited data so I like that I can download the shows I’ve missed onto the app to listen to in the car. I just wish it was more consistent and didn’t have an issue every time they put out an update. Right now the issue is that if I stop listening to a show and go back to it later it will restart from the beginning and not where I left off. Then I have to try to figure out where I was. I wish they’d add a forward button that only went like 20 seconds instead of having to either forward past a whole segment or slide to another part of the show but not knowing where you’ll end up stopping.
Listening to ‘the radio’ is still a great way to go! :D
by James Tormé on 2019/04/18 00:55
Even in this age of overstimulation and emphasis on the visual, listening to a good old radio show is still a totally fulfilling experience and one that is uniquely “my time”. Do you listen. You reflect. And you can do something else all the while (like drive, guard a present pod, or fix somebody’s rear left suspension housing) without feeling held hostage at all. A lot of people who don’t have the time to read a lot get the majority of their outside perspectives on life from listening to the radio on that daily commute, when they are, for a time, a ‘captive audience’ for life‘s commentators. This can be a good thing or a bad thing depending on your perspective. But at least it allows them to think about topical stuff for a minute… And in that time their mind escapes some of that add you to build up by the daily grind.
The redesign has made it so much worse
by Ben B 84 on 2018/06/22 03:40
I love SiriusXM. I’m a streaming-only customer... I live in NYC and never drive. So this app and the web app are the only ways I listen to SiriusXM. The content is what keeps me coming back. However, this application post-redesign a few months ago is one of the worst I’ve ever seen. Something basic: entering the app, you’re sometimes prompted by one of those “rate this on iTunes” dialogs. Ok, fine. Everyone needs to keep their rating up, I get it. However, the modal for that interaction doesn’t have an overlay that shows that other actions in the application are disabled. It looks like the other functions of the player... play/pause, etc. are usable. So I spend 20 seconds thinking the app is broken, until I realize there’s a modal for review in the foreground. Then I start streaming. That works fine, until I encounter connectivity issues, which is most of the commute in NYC. The “go live” button isn’t a button.. it’s just text, and has no indication that it’s been pressed (which is mobile app dev 101). It feels like the press event hasn’t happened. I’m usually sure that it didn’t, and that the app is broken. Most of the time I terminate the entire app and reload it to get a working stream. Honestly, you should fire anyone involved with the redesign of this application. They don’t have enough experience to develop a coherent mobile application. Whoever implemented the previous version seemed to know what they were doing.
Yada yada nanu nanu
by turbolarry52 on 2019/03/21 14:55
Just an update - I'm not adding any new updates - who knows If it improves things or not. Sirius are you responding to these postings? I have an iPhone 6, using iOS 10.3, no intentions to upgrade my iOS for numerous reasons. No content has been downloaded, so I don't understand - 3.x Gb storage. That much ? With no downloaded content? Does the basic app use that much storage? Btw - howard off again - another week ? Week of 3-18. Must be nice ! As far as the reviewer wrote about updating iOS one iPhone I have the latest and greatest and now my serious app is crashing. Not because I'm very low on memory, but it's worked before those conditions. I do agree that it's annoying for example that if I see that Riley Morgan is scheduled on Howard 101 the something entirely different. These apps are designed by developers that should be able to solve these problems and resolve the issues. I've been looking for employment for a long time and I am a graphic designer was some interactive design skills. So it baffles me that you have developers who haven't gotten it right and got these issues resolved. So Sirius XM hiring manager, hire me! Visual, marketing and technical problem solving is what I do best. With a little insight and team effort, i'll get all these issues solved.
Can’t sign in
by teaboneski on 2020/04/02 01:03
I’ve been using this app for years and there are always issues. The current one (and it’s kind of a big one) is that I can’t get passed the login screen. I’ve been trying to log in since March 11th, when I was logged out randomly (which happens occasionally with most subscription apps, so no big deal). Today is April 1, and I still haven’t been able to log in. I know my credentials, so that’s not the problem. I can still log into my account on the web, it’s just the mobile app I can’t sign into. I type in my credentials and the SiriusXM logo pops up and loads indefinitely. I’ve reached out to support (phone and email) but it’s impossible getting in touch right now, which is understandable in the current circumstances. I get it, I just don’t want to be paying for something I can’t use. You also can’t cancel your account without speaking to a representative. As stated above, that’s nearly impossible right now. And there’s no online option to cancel. Not sure what to do at this point.
Bogus product
by jimmm37522579000 on 2020/03/24 14:56
This is review for Sirius xm in general. What a pain of a product. I’ve been a subscriber for years. It’s always been a hassle. I always had to call to get he same deal, over and over again. I’d have to spend half an hour on the phone every 5 months to get my radio for $25 even then they would always automatically renew me even when I’d specifically ask them not to, and of course the automatic renewal would be at triple the price. So every time I have to call and spend all that time on the phone to get refunded and put back on the same deal I’ve always had. I finally had enough of wasting my time on all that so I cancelled all together. After receiving 100 phone calls from them and me expressing my issues, they told me they would give me a full year, continuing at the price I always paid. They confirmed I would still have all my channels. Well my radio renewed and it’s missing both Howard stern channels; the whole reason I subscribed. So there’s another 45 minutes on the phone to cancel and get my refund. Sirius has a great product but why can’t I just continue paying the same amount to get my channels? I don’t understand how such a big company can be so difficult. I just want to pay for the product and not have all his hassle. The process of trying to renew feels like I’m buying a car every time. I’d love to continue giving Sirius my money, hopefully one day they decide to start running their business with some class and customer support.
Overall, a solid app!
by JesusIsKing87 on 2018/02/16 17:12
The Sirius-XM app works pretty well overall but there needs to be a volume bar added (as another previous review stated) and I would like to also see the name of the song/artist/year scroll from left to right. I often see songs that have either a longer name or the artist/group having a lengthier name, and it’s cut off to where you can’t even see the year it came out. In other words it doesn’t scroll across left to right as it should. Please add these two things along with general enhancements regularly to make this app better. I enjoy listening to mostly music (60s on 6 preferably) on this app and being able to adjust the volume (without using the side manual volume adjustment) on the screen and seeing the year would be a great improvement. Thank you! :-)

I wish to thank series for the music that I enjoy which is sometimes find music to relax me and I enjoy the bridge crossover I enjoy their all-time comedy show which is like with them the talk show I forgot what they called it has that all time TV shows as what I like and the most important no commercials that’s what I enjoy thank you very much. I I enjoy it very much that I pass on the words to others to picture at XM radio in fact I talk to my daughter into trying it for a while so it’s up to her and her husband to find out if they like it without commercials they love the kids songs cause I got five now so we’ll see how that goes because they they have different taste of music compared to me I love the all timers they like the updated type music all right thank you very much.
Bad UI functionality
by apple andy on 2018/01/03 20:48
There’s a slider on the top of the app that is suppose to let you rewind and forward to any point of the broadcast. It works 2% of the time. The slider does not detect me dragging it and then interprets my drag as a swipe taking me to the next or previous channel. How many users navigate channels this way? I feel there should be more emphasis and control of moving where you want to be in the broadcast playing. It’s very hard to get exactly where I want to be on the audio stream. I have to listen to things I already heard before or get taken ahead in the broadcast ruining things I haven’t heard yet. Your “engineers/developers” should make sure the slider is working and is not misinterpreted as a swipe to next channel. Have the slider area have a larger vertical height invisibly or visibly so I can control better. Your UI/UX designers, do some research on how many people swipe left and right to navigate channels. I usually jump into menu for this... rarely is the next or previous channel a task I want to perform or channel I want to listen to. Give more emphasis and UI space for timeline of broadcast control, I want to rewind/fast forward where I want to be on the channel I’m listening to currently. Very frustrating app to use.
Music is a big part of my Life
by OldCrow63 on 2018/06/22 23:18

Enthusiastic SiriusXM recommendation from me @ 66
by garyjyogi on 2018/06/22 00:03
SiriusXM is the best thing to happen to music since FM Di’s in the 70’s-early 80s. Free Form Radio. Now specialty stations for ever taste by era or artist. Blues, Outlaw Country,Jazz( too many stations for me to track), Grateful Dead & Beatles stations & live play by play for my Yankee games regardless of my location. I believe it works for other sports & teams as well & Howard Stern & the tv news feeds across the spectrum from MSNBC through CNN to Fox. & more I keep discovering more content, oh yeah Classic radio, Wow! Makes driving much more fun for me & if I have passengers a great way to be a good host. I could go on but 90% didn’t read this far & I doubt I will even get a thank you from SiriusXM. Even if terrestrial radio had anything worth listening to, SiriusXM does it better & w minimal commercial interruptions. Best to all Garyjyogi
What is playing?
by Padre Joe on 2018/01/03 21:42
Great app! I love listening to music on Sirius XM most mornings and it’s nice and convenient to use my iPad to do it. The only problem is that there seems to be a glitch in the display of what is currently playing (I’m not sure what it’s supposed to be called, so I hope that makes sense). When I select a station to listen to, the current song displays like normal. Sometimes the next song displays as well, but then the display seems to get “stuck” on that first or second song and doesn’t update the title, artist, or album cover until I change stations. Then it starts all over again. My Favorites list shows the correct title and artist, but the main display remains on that first or second song. That’s the one issue I’ve noticed. Otherwise, love the app!
I can not dial back w new update
by JmOWolff on 2018/05/29 16:31
I’ve been a SiriusXM subscriber for over 10 years, and i must say that the new format change is awful. I listen to several channels where I once could scan backwards up to six hours for content. The new format no longer allows for that. My favorites are now mixed in with channels I don't care about. And trying to find out where I am when I find them takes way too much effort. I pay a premium rate for this service primarily to use on my iPhone. It used to be so easy and convenient but the new format is just too hard to use. As i mentioned I’ve been a SiriusXM subscriber for over 10 years, weathered many changes but this change is the worst yet. Please fix these problems or provide an option to go back to the previous version and the more intuitive format. I once loved this app, but I’m not listening anymore, too frustrating. I’m very disappointed.
Glitchiest App in App Store
by Zaggott on 2020/07/16 20:06
Constantly having to uninstall/reinstall the app to be able to listen to music. The app always loses my place when I’m listening to Howard Stern. Some episodes are available one minute and then unavailable the next. Frequently deletes my saved episodes. Having to restart my phone to get the app to work at all. Can’t connect via WiFi or LTE sometimes, with the app stating that there’s no internet available (other apps and SpeedTest indicate that I have a fine connection via either WiFi or LTE.) Just a very frustrating app. I’m leaving this review after spending FIFTEEN minutes trying to TRICK the app into working for me. I gave up after uninstalling, reinstalling, and restarting my phone twice. I’m not exaggerating when I say this is the worst app I’ve ever had to use. They’re holding Howard Stern hostage by being the only content provider that has him. And they know it. So they’re not motivated to fix the app. For $140 every 6 months, it’d be amazing if the app worked half as well as Candy Crush.
Serious downgrade with last update
by Vitosim on 2018/07/03 15:06
I have been a Sirius app user for years but the last app update completely ruined the experience. Since the update the tiles in my favorites consistently represent the wrong channels. For example, as I right now listen to The Lumineers on Alt Nation the title says Oingo Boingo is playing. Oingo Boingo is actually playing live on 1st Wave. I don’t even have 1st Wave in my favorites so I can’t explain that. This happens across all of My Favorites I’ve tried to delete my favorites hoping that deleting them and saving them again might fix this, but I can’t delete any of my favorites. When I deselect the star it just highlights itself again. I’ve deleted the app and reinstalled it again but nothing changes. Also, the entire new user interface is a pain to use when driving. I mostly listen during my commute. Sirius please go back to the old interface or at least give me that option. Keep in mind this isn’t a free service. I’m a paying customer but perhaps not for much longer.
Reliable yet intrusive
by delmore dingleberry on 2018/06/26 05:08
Always on, always ready, variety, pay to play It has done exactly wat was intended to happen. I am addicted to it. Just like cell, apps, pc, internet, dna, all just another avenue for our government to intrude a bit deeper into our lives. Maybe all of this will end up on a positive note. Our govt is imploding and corruption is being exposed so deep into every branch of gov, incl local gov. I am all about it. Wat goes up will come down. Watching the bad actors in our gov get a dose of wat they been doing to everyone else. Once more of us realize that the majority of corrupt players in our govt not only have ability to watch our family through their cell phone, tv, pc, anything attached to internet or especially anything called smart.... Just the truth from one that knows
High pressure tactics by Sirius Customer Service
by Floridaskater2003 on 2020/01/28 12:04
I have had Sirius XM for over 10 years. I’m a retiree on a fixed income and was up for renewal. I called Sirius yesterday to cancel my subscription. I can no longer afford to keep the service. I was on the phone for 45 minutes before I could get a confirmation number for the cancelation. The first Sirius Representative said she would give me a great deal which was actually much more than I’ve ever paid. I asked why, and she told me, I had received “too many promotional deals.” I said NO and she continued the well known Sirius reps aggressive and despicable sales tactics. I said NO I WANT TO CANCEL MY SUBSCRIPTION 10 times. Finally she told me she had to transfer me to a cancellation agent!? Another agent came on and gave me the same speech. I asked the rep if he was a cancellation agent. He said no, there was no such position, but he would process my request and I finally got my confirmation number for cancellation. These high pressure sales tactics with the elderly, should be illegal. Never again!
Resisted, but now regret waiting!
by Olde Poodle on 2018/02/28 03:20
I very much enjoy my automobile XM Radio on multiple vehicles, so did not want to spend more for an iPhone version, but having the XM/Sirius app in my pocket has proven to be even more enjoyable and I use it more than I do the car subscriptions. My favorite station, Classical Pops, is still available on the app even after it was removed from the radio! As a extra bonus, the Christmas music is still available now, and it is almost March. Further, the Fox News and Fox Business programs that I like can be restarted if I am late, or paused when I am interrupted. My only complaint is that the progress bar is inaccurate, so that it is difficult to know where one is in a news program, and the program titles do not keep up to the moment like the music titles do. All in all, I am very satisfied with Sirius/XM.

Xm radio is the way to go!
by wes from central NY on 2018/06/22 15:16
Never thought I’d pay for radio but...after listening to my local country stations for years, the amount of commercials have overcome the music. They also tend to repeat the same songs too much. I tried xm radio on free trial then became a subscriber. It’s great! My two favorite stations are the Highway & Prime country. The highway has an awesome morning show I love and they get the newest country songs before anyone else. Prime country plays the older country songs I grew up with from the 80s & 90s that the local stations just don’t anymore. Best parts, variety & NO commercials ever!! My opinion, totally worth it. And if u get the app for your phone, u can listen anytime anywhere u have good service. I highly recommend Xm. Their customer service is really good as well if u need assistance. Definelty worth it if u love music!! W.D. from N.Y.

Terrible
by Keeper007 on 2018/02/02 00:37
Unfortunately, this app (for me at least) is riddle with problems. It actually does ok if you are listening to something live. But becomes very problematic when trying to go back and listen to past programs. It constantly says “Trying to recover audio”. When trying to skip past the commercial, it will skip all the way to the live portion of the channel. Then you have to start the show back over and TRY and skip forward to where you left off. If there was another option than using this app, I would totally be all for it. Unfortunately if you want to listen outside of the car or play past shows, be prepared for a potential headache. This company is way to main stream to have an app that is this terrible. Just my opinion and I hope the finally update the app to something that worked more often than it doesn’t. Especially if you are going back to listen to past show.
Bugs Need Fixin
by aek150 on 2020/03/01 21:12
This app is great when it works. Glitches galore. For example, if you save SiriusXM shows in the app’s tab for your Favorites, they may or may not be there next time you open it. So you save them again, until a few days later when they’re gone again from your Favorites. Also, if you pause on a show, and come back later to continue, it won’t play. It won’t even play if you try to restart it from the beginning. Once you pause a show, it is stuck, really frozen, and won’t play again. You can unstick the show in 2 ways: (1) by logging out of the app and logging back in, or (2) by starting to play the next show in the queue for a couple seconds and then going back to the show you paused. Idk why that works. This app needs bug fixes but those fixes never happen. I do enjoy using the app when it works, cause there’s a lot of variety to listen to on long drives.
Meh, save yourself some money and listen to iHeartRadio
by Not Sonya on 2019/04/25 23:44
I found a better variety of music on iheart radio with the added bonus of being able to search and listen for specific bands or podcasts. And iHeartRadio is free. So you have to listen to one commercial once in a great while... totally worth it. Also, the cancellation process is nasty. You can’t cancel within the app or even online. You actually have to call customer service. I was called Valerie, then Sonya (twice). Neither of which are remotely close to my name. Awkward! Then I was given the option to GET A DEAL. No thank you. I was put on hold, I erroneously thought to process the cancellation. WOULD YOU LIKE ANOTHER DEAL. Nope, still trying to cancel. Put on hold again, for cancellation? NOPE ANOTHER DEAL. I admit by then I lost my temper and said,” I. Just. Want. To. Cancel!” Then SiriusXM was able to! And they only called me Sonya one more time.
Nightmare unsubscribe!
by Troubeall2 on 2020/01/04 23:45
DO NOT SIGN UP! I only have the app on my phone, they don’t supply all the information you need to sign in on a computer, it’s proving impossible to cancel my account. After well over an hour on the phone, mostly on hold, then chatting with someone online, then being told I would have to call again to cancel, then calling to find out the call center is closed. This is absolutely ridiculous! Is it really that difficult to make it where people can cancel through the app, come on. Update: Days later, still can’t cancel, they gave me the runaround, took 20 minutes to get my information entered correctly because the guy who barely spoke English and kept changing letters and numbers and entering it wrong. After hours on the phone, now I’m told they can’t find my account. Apparently I’m being charged for an account that I can’t cancel and doesn’t exist. My only option is apparently canceling my debit card, I bet they find my account then!
Version 5.4.6 crashing when unlocking iPhone
by This is Scott on 2019/06/21 18:38
I noticed very quickly after upgrading to 5.4.6 that very frequently when I'm listening and my iPhone screen locks that when I try to unlock it the SXM app briefly seems to freeze up the iPhone and then crashes and obviously stops therefore playing. Has this issue already been reported and is it being looked into? I'm using an iPhone 7 with iOS 10.3.3 still installed. This app is the only one having this issue. I use some other music streaming programs, podcast apps and I haven't seen this happen when using any of them. And it wasn't occurring in SXM neither before I upgraded it to this version. Other than this issue I enjoy the app when I have a subscription and don't have any other major issues with it at this time.
Streaming service fail
by Samandmarinasdad on 2020/01/10 05:49
I cancelled this service on the first day of my free trial. The content is news services you can get for free on iHeartRadio and garbage music channels that feel like podcasts. I have seen their full boat service in peoples cars and this isn’t even close to that. Don’t let the price point trick you all this content can be found for free on a number of other platforms. In addition when you try to log into your account online, their website needs you to give it a car vin number or a radio ID number which you don’t have with a streaming account. To cancel I had to engage in an online chat and have it done manually. When I told the agent that I couldn’t log in and why he said he was aware of the problem. This service is a cash grab to prop up their now antiquated service. It wasn’t worth it to me for free, to pay for it is ridiculous. Between Apple Music and iHeartRadio radio you get all of this with better service and more content.
