Many loading issues on this app lately!!!!
by lsuzchg on 2021/04/20 19:01
I have had daily issues with this app loading for the past week and a half and no customer service help at all it only works in my car
The app rarely works!
by BitsBoo on 2021/04/20 13:38
For being so expensive you don’t get much. The app continuously freezes or just doesn’t work for hours. And customer service is the worst! They force you to chat so they can push all of their overprice packages on you..and the humans don’t use common sense! I would’ve been better off talking to a computer. I was offered a price then a lower price, then a higher price. 😂😂 when I said to cancel they canceled effective immediately instead of when trial was over in a couple weeks and refunded me $.27. The human “misunderstood” and instead of clarifying went forward with the cancel and not him nor his manager could reverse it. Ridiculous! Such horrible service for such a large company! Spend your $ anywhere else!
App won’t load
by brunnerkj on 2021/04/20 10:37
App won’t load past sign on. Very frustrating as I can’t use it and my main reason for purchasing is for listening away from the car. Will cancel.
Garbage

Garbage app

Keeps resetting the preferences. Always want high quality downloads. Always want no notifications. Always.
Garbage on the iPhone 11
by Lighningchazz on 2021/04/18 19:46
Constantly trying to connect from WiFi to WiFi. I can pause for an hour, but only skip 3 songs? Who added that stupid feature? Never updates the channels to the current song, you will always see the song that was playing when you opened the app. Stern is a mess on here if you want the app to hold your place on a 3-4 hour show. Get used to ff or rew to find where you left off. Not impressed
iPad use
by RLM0828 on 2021/04/18 18:19
Does not work on iPad. I contacted SiriusXM but I am still unable to use on this iPad.
Worst APP
by JimmyBaker on 2021/04/18 13:15
Always problems streaming Howard’s older interviews. They won’t play or they’ll play under a different title. WORST. APP. EVER.
Great App. Carplay Stinks!
by wolfman_4_ever on 2021/04/18 03:40
I live in Hawaii and there is no XM Satellite service so I use the app with internet service in my car. The app is great but the carplay function is total *rap. Won’t play after reconnection, recents are not recent, limited favorites. The won’t play after you get out of the car and come back is is bonkers.
Why won’t the app load
by Dan b. on 2021/04/17 21:39
I’ve been trying for 2 weeks to login to the app. I checked in safari and my credentials are correct yet the app just spins and won’t open.
Too buggy, episodes won't play
by Rob422693567 on 2021/04/17 19:51
I love the content (80's on 8 is my favorite) but in the last few months I cannot get an episode to play all the way through from the mobile app. It will start playing but then after a few minutes it just stops, and then if I try to restart it says "Sorry, this episode is not available", but I know that's not actually the case because the episode plays fine from the SiriusXM website player. If eventually I get the episode to play after a bunch of force-quits and/or restarting the phone, then it starts over from the beginning and I can't skip to where I Ieft off because the number of skips is limited.
Settings get reset every time you open app
by Review12abcxyz on 2021/04/16 13:49
4/16/2021. New release still has not fixed application settings resetting each time the app is opened. The settings get reset to their default every time you open app. Used to work till this latest update.

Worst Ever
by email gal on 2021/04/14 21:30
I am anxiously awaiting a new radio streaming company to replace Sirius. For all the big names they have on their channel they can’t create an app that works to save their life. It is the most inconsistently performing app of any that I use and I am at the point where I’m ready to dump the whole thing. Half the time if you pause a live show it jumps to a completely different show when you try and restart. Many times I try and play an on demand show and it just goes around and around and around and never plays. It’s just incredibly frustrating that it’s so poorly executed abs when you read countless similar reviews you have to wonder where their money is going!
Stops playing
by mike.lally83 on 2021/04/14 19:14
It will randomly just stop playing. Pauses for no reason whatsoever.
Garbage
by NewsComercialCommercial on 2021/04/14 12:00
App has more bugs than an East Colfax motel! Any glowing review of this wreck is a fake. Sirius charges WAY too much for their lo-fi satellite feed anyway. Signal dropouts and a lousy app are no way to run a business. C'mon Starlink!
Bad connectivity, bad functionality...and there’s no choice but to use it.
by Riverine on 2021/04/14 00:31
Imagine listening to a past episode of a show, and you want to forward to the next episode. Well, tough, you can’t; you have to make your way back to the episode library, scroll down and select the next episode. A big deal, in and of itself...? No, but it’s 2021; basic audio controls aren’t the mystery they might have been in the past. Add to that inexplicable connectivity problems: full bars and strong wifi...? Doesn’t matter, the SiriusXM app will find a way to not play what you just told it to play.
App will not recognize me to allow play outside of car on my I phone
by ggmasue on 2021/04/13 21:34
I am having issues with the app. I have tried several times without success to get the app set up on my iPhone 12 Pro Max. Is there a known issue? Who do I need to speak to so that I can take advantage of this service which is already paid for and is supposed to be available to me?????? So frustrated right now. I will restate after issue is resolved. Thank you.
Barely works. Way too many bugs for pay service.

Use YouTube instead, it’s free.
Screen lock override
by Dan from Manhattan on 2021/04/12 22:09
The screen lock override keeps changing its setting after I switch it from on to off!! Why is this an issue??? This needs to be fixed ASAP this was never an issue after your update last month.
Decent
by dplous on 2021/04/12 02:31
I use it all the time, great for music and sports. The big BUT is the app says a certain song is playing and when you click on the station, a different song is playing. Can’t trust what the app says.
App dropped signal
by Admihur223 on 2021/04/12 00:47
There are way to many dropped signals when using app
This app seriously needs to be updated.
by Stargazer III on 2021/04/12 00:07
I listen to the app all the time around the house and really enjoy it, however, the songs showing on the favorites list is NEVER what is playing on the actual channel. How hard is it to have what’s currently playing actually show on the channel list. Must be pretty hard. I have great wifi, so I don’t see why this continues to happen. Also, it does cut out after listening for a while, but I have a feeling that is intentional to make sure you are still listening. I don’t have any issues in the car, only in the app. Sounds like there a lot of dissatisfied customers. Maybe pay Stern a little less and get your house in order.
Can’t even log in
by tedschuh on 2021/04/11 17:41
I use the same credentials I use for the web and it can’t even recognize the email address I’ve been using with Sirius XM for over 20 years. Completely unusable.
App not Working for iOS
by twilighthigh on 2021/04/11 14:41
Hi, my app keeps shutting down when accessing on my iPhone. Never had any issues before. Please take a look at the app.
Good App, awful CarPlay Support
by Jim19406 on 2021/04/11 13:58
The app itself, on an iPhone is fine. Sounds good, the organization of favorites into tiles is pretty decent, sound quality (on maximum) is great, etc. Where the app needs serious work is with CarPlay. First, the app needs Siri and Siri Shortcuts integration! That should be at the very top of SiriusXMs todo list. Right now, the app is a safety hazard asking for an accident in CarPlay. I should be able to say “Hey Siri, play SiriusXM alt nation” instead of taking my eyes off the road and fumbling through the SiriusXM CarPlay UI. After you have complete Siri and Siri Shortcuts integration, number 2 on your todo list has to be to clean up the UI. Bring the Favorites tiles UI to CarPlay and have the app open to the Favorites tiles, not whatever the random, text-heavy screen it’s opening to right now is. Those two UI cleanups are going to make SiriusXM a much better (and SAFER!) CarPlay app!
Not working with Apple IOS 14.4.2
by MusicMarky on 2021/04/10 20:15
On my iPad with the Apple update for IOS 14.4.2 I cannot log in to the Sirius app for Apple. On my iPhone that has not been updated with the new IOS, I can still log in. Many calls and hours wasted trying to get support from Sirius and no help.
Done with app
by Dingo813 on 2021/04/10 17:05
After updated app, constantly crashes on start. This occurs on both iPhone and iPad. If this can’t be fixed time to delete!!!
Garbage
by Keith2803 on 2021/04/09 19:50
This App is complete GARBAGE!!! I’m sick and tired of the glitches I have to endure with this app for a paid service! Constantly pausing without cause. I’ll be listening to a show and all of the sudden it will just cut out and go to the live show playing and I have no idea where I was in the previous show. For how much money SiriusXM makes you figure they’d have a better app and work out the bugs. Either fix your app or I’ll be canceling my online subscription.
What a crap app
by putinsbastardson on 2021/04/09 19:14
This app is constantly crashing and buffering. I think a group of high school kids can design a better app. Fix this Sirius, you have the money !
Poor quality
by E@$79er on 2021/04/09 13:03
Every two hours or so the music just stops. You have to close the app then re open it. Very annoying.
CarPlay HORRIBLE
by cmccoy11 on 2021/04/08 17:03
CarPlay is horrible with this app. Not usable at all.
It’s a scam
by TaylanTasja on 2021/04/08 04:21
This is app is a total scam even the customer service you can’t cancel or delete account. Please Don’t use you will be disappointed I wish I would’ve known 😑
Stern listener
by Oakie25 on 2021/04/07 18:18
I don’t understand how this app works. I want to listen to a live show, and the app stalls, quits and jumps around. Usually it happened on the hour, and then when you rewind the show to where the app failed, it will begin to stall and jump back to live. Fix the stream!!
Sirus app
by Hav had it on 2021/04/06 23:31
Difficult to add. Sirus needs to work on it
Poor Experience across the Board
by 605turby on 2021/04/06 05:33
I downloaded the SiriusXM app to stream music, podcasts, and games while driving. The app worked for one afternoon, and has not worked since. It refuses to recognize my account email, even though I can sign in to the same account on my Mac with no problems. I tried changing my password on Mac and then signing in with the new password on iPhone to get hit with the same issue. I will be canceling my Sirius subscription and not dealing with this service or app ever again.
Full of Bugs
by JohnnyK777 on 2021/04/05 18:48
Can’t believe the good score on this app. It’s full of bugs. I have an iPhone 11, less than one year old, and this app drops out in the middle of playbacks. It randomly jumps to other shows. And it turns off completely when, say, an unrelated tweet or Instagram alert arrives on my phone. It’s the only app that hasn’t worked on my phone.
Very glitch-prone
by blaakpilot on 2021/04/05 14:07
When the app works as advertised, it’s a decent product, but it is prone to glitches and errors that makes listening frustrating. For example, favorites lists disappear quite often, and on demand shows disappear for days at a time. Streaming and on demand shows will just pause randomly, and downloaded content that’s supposed to be accessible without an internet connection will sometimes not play without internet. I understand that this is a robust app, but for a paid product, the errors are really vexing.
Car play not so good
by Juttin3 on 2021/04/04 01:16
I wish car play would actually work right. 2020 civic. It’s not easy to change stations. You have to go through several menus unless you have favorites setup. Sometime when you try to go to a station nothing happens when you press the screen in car. Sometimes you get menu doesn’t exist errors. I wish there was a option to list all stations so I could scroll through all channels. It would be nice to be able to change stations from steering wheel controls. The whole car play feature of this app needs a overhaul.
App self-pauses
by SUPERDAVEBMW on 2021/04/03 21:18
I really like this app and use it all the time. It does have a strange issue where it’ll randomly pause, sometimes I have to restart the app to get it to play again. I’ve encountered this issue with iPhone 7Plus & iPhone 12 Pro
Needs better search
by Peppers Patriot on 2021/04/02 15:28
I type in Bennington show and it says no results. Are you crazy? It’s the best show on the network.
Buggy but Useful
by Rony Black on 2021/04/02 15:17
I’m used to the app being buggy but now there are NO saved shows available. Tom Papa show, All Out Show, Sway in the Morning...none of their previous shows are on it. What happened?
What happened to my favorites list?
by LindaY in CLE on 2021/04/02 14:57
I have several shows on POTUS radio that I listen to regularly but frequently have to listen to the replays. I had all of these shows in my favorites list under shows. Suddenly, they’re not showing up anymore. This makes it very difficult to go and listen to them when I can! I don’t know what happened, but I can’t even put them back on my favorites list for some reason. Very frustrating!
1st Time ever leaving feedback
by sixpact on 2021/04/02 14:34
This app continues to be more trash after each update. Convoluted GUI, search doesn’t work, favorites disappear at random. Apple needs to decertify this junk
Favorite shows have gone missing AGAIN
by xshedx on 2021/04/02 13:04
It’s been many months since this issue last happened but all my favorite shows have gone missing again. The favorite channels are there but the shows I like are gone.
Bugs
by K9_Carl on 2021/04/02 12:44
App frequently loses favorite shows, can’t retrieve show content. It will play live content just fine, but the on-demand stuff has frequent issues.
Sirius XM app
by FGraz5 on 2021/04/02 12:37
Not sure how this app gets a high rating. The search never works. You can clearly type in a show you listen too and it only works once in awhile. Also if you have favorites they disappear often. Material by Sirius is still excellent but you always think if the have such a great product why don’t they put some more effort it to the app and how well it works
Category section on Howard stern page
by shawn89711 on 2021/04/02 12:22
What happens to this? It’s not there and I am looking for the history of stern shows. Fix the app.
No Data to Find Error

I’m upset with this app
by vsbshehehe on 2021/04/02 08:35
Why do all my shows and episodes keep disappearing? What is the point of this app if I can’t keep up with what I need? Bring back the history of Howard dag nabbit.
Favorites erased every few months
by RStolins on 2021/04/02 03:21
There are shows on Sirius/XM I like to listen regularly. But every few months, the app erases my show settings, forcing me to find and add the shows again. This behavior is getting tiresome. Seems to be programmed into the app, not a random malfunction.
Buffering Forever and .. No I'm NOT "Offline!
by RealEstateZealot on 2021/04/02 02:11
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??

App is fine, the company are liars
by Loper85 on 2021/04/01 03:34
I subscribed in February to include all MLB games for a year. $5/mo. I’ve had this for several years but dropped during the pandemic when there were no games. Now a week before the season opener they say MLB channels require an upgrade to $9/mo. Kiss my grits. Liars, thieves, double x-rs. AMF Boycott
Buffering..
by The dude cnzjxhnjchjznxm on 2021/03/31 19:30
What’s the point of downloading episodes if it still buffers a pauses. Garbage app
Terrible, crashes constantly!!!!
by Drumbum77 on 2021/03/31 15:02
I got this to listen to Howard, a 3-4 hour show. I cannot get through 1 show without the app freezing or crashing several times. Sometimes it just stops and when I press play, it starts randomly in some other part of show and I have to figure out where I was....very frustrating!!!!
Good app but sometimes loses all favorites...
by RichieL215 on 2021/03/31 12:27
...plus no Bennington show to download from Tuesday, 3/30/21. Thanks.
WORST APP EVER!!
by TABAPPLOVER on 2021/03/31 00:21
Your app NEVER works correctly on any given day!! Shows don’t load. Not available. Get it together for your paying customers!!!!! Ridiculous
Broken for last few updates
by Timm-Again on 2021/03/31 00:14
As stated by previous posts,Howard Stern show downloads stop 2-3 minutes before end of show, or a short sentence keeps repeating, or its in the middle of conversation then stops. App does freeze often, requiring to constantly push play. Most recent, and biggest problem, I can’t download new shows. It always says “download unavailable” or “download interrupted, try again later”. Plenty of hours have past for it to be available. Don’t want to listen live, when I keep hearing same segments. Please Fix!
Horrid little app
by LAMF on 2021/03/30 23:35
I live in a major metro area, I have no troubles listening to podcasts etc.... trying to use this app while walking my dog? Impossible. It takes forever to start up and once it’s going it will switch shows or just stop streaming, go to try and pick original show again and I get the spinning circle for 20 minutes or longer. Now just standing in my house it says I am not connected to the internet. Funny as I am on WiFi or LTE when it tells me that. Garbage.
Pauses
by Crazynsain on 2021/03/30 01:01
Random pausing has caused me to re-think my subscription. I can do with commercials on other apps if this isn’t fixed soon
Never works
by k86A13 on 2021/03/29 17:36
I have been able to log into this app twice. It always gives me an error stating my password is wrong so I have to change it every time. Now I can not login at all. When I try it says that there is “no record” of my username. It is the same as I used before and the same that I use to login to my account online. What is going on????

Still in the dark ages
by DyreLogan on 2021/03/28 08:31
This company is still in the dark ages when it comes to billing. They still want ONLY a credit card or gift card. No option for PayPal like every other company out there. I guess I'll stick to Apple Music and Spotify and choose my own music to listen to.
Frustrated
by JJK1234 on 2021/03/27 20:56
I love listening to this app especially The Highway! Lately I’ve noticed that they’re bringing in what I call filler music! The music doesn’t sound like country music it sounds like it belongs on a different channel. Keep the country station country!
Every single time, the App pauses
by ChrisInKC on 2021/03/26 20:02
I’ve become really used to this happening but it’s annoying enough that I felt like I needed to report it. Every single time I open the app and start playing a station, after a short period of time (1 to 2 minutes) the channel stops playing like the pause button was hit. Fixing it is simple enough by just hitting the play button again, but it’s quite annoying to have to do that literally every single time I use the app. This is NOT an internet issue either.
My app always pauses
by eric4le on 2021/03/26 17:12
Please fix this bug!!!!! It just randomly pauses all the time
App is always experiencing “technical issues”
by benttoolip on 2021/03/25 17:16
About half the time I use this app I get a notification that it is experiencing “technical issues” and just doesn’t load or work. What a pain. Wondering why I’m even paying for a subscription.
Every download cuts off the last 30 seconds
by party_central on 2021/03/25 04:20
Every Stern Show and Wrap Up Show download ends while they are still talking and not done. Been happening for the past couple months.
No longer any good
by Deauphoto on 2021/03/25 00:26
This is no longer a good app. Needs an update to the update!
Locks up constantly
by Poor App 69 on 2021/03/24 19:12
I primarily listen to the Howard Stern Show and the app is constantly jumping around the show and freezing, it’s very frustrating.
Update Is Terrible
by griner72 on 2021/03/24 11:34
Since the last update this app has become crap. Will not renew my subscription.
Fixed!
by Fryer Tucker on 2021/03/23 20:41
Lastly rev (5.75) eliminated the ability to go back in time several hours into a buffer to listen to things. This was fixed in (5.76). Love The app. Been an XM subscriber since their beginning.
Worst. App. Ever.
by Lseashell1973 on 2021/03/23 20:27
This app is by far the worst that I have. It’s constantly pausing play for no reason. If I do have it paused, it’ll just jump to live unprompted. It seems like it has a mind of its own. I hate it 😖
Plays randomly
by J_W_B_6 on 2021/03/23 18:34
The app opens randomly on my iPhone. I have looked through all of the settings and cannot get it to stop. It is very aggravating when you are in the middle of an online meeting and your car stereo decides it wants to play!
Awesome
by Boy Joejo on 2021/03/22 19:50
I love listening in my new car it makes the experience of buying a new car fun knowing you will get a free trial of XM radio 📻
One gripe.
by Danny Wigs on 2021/03/22 19:42
The one complaint I have of Sirius radio is that a few years ago you eliminated the best station available. My go to, Beyond Jazz. I have a trial subscription due to a new vehicle purchase and I will not renew when it expires because of this reason. If this station ( Beyond Jazz) was back on the air, you would have a lifetime subscriber
barely functional
by trentawarrior on 2021/03/22 19:22

Garbage App
by tiredofcorporatehassle on 2021/03/22 10:03
Can’t subscribe to the streaming service through the app, and unsubscribing was a one hour nightmare with customer service.
Love the content but the app is stale
by Mac B from Tennessee on 2021/03/21 13:50
I love how Pandora offers Siri Shortcuts for my favorite stations and HomePod integration. It would be lovely if the Sirius app would follow suit. The content is great, as it has always been, but I will probably use the app less and less if it’s not as convenient as Apple’s Music app or Sirius’s Pandora app.
Now what
by MILKIDOG on 2021/03/20 15:08
Opened this app on my ipad, entered my user name and password, and getting dark screen with Sirius flashing back at me and no way to stop it... will not open!! MJ
App is Garbage, needs a lot of work
by androidsdontrequirenicknames on 2021/03/20 05:31
I can’t think of much about this app that is functional- it’s a pain to browse. I mostly use it to listen to specific programs, and show notifications don’t work properly, songs queued up on a show don’t play in the order that the DJ’s are broadcasting them- and sometimes repeat, and sometimes the program will randomly start over 3/4 of the way through... How does that even happen? Worst part, you can’t skip more than maybe two songs, so going back to where it left off before it messed up is impossible. Often, going live to listen to a live broadcast doesn’t even work. It’s pitiful, and it’s getting worse. I’m considering canceling my subscription because it’s almost unusable.
Terrible on Apple TV
by tjn_dpc on 2021/03/19 13:02
The app constantly freezes and there is no way to rewind or fast forward without the app malfunctioning, going into channel changing mode and ironically refusing to accept any input including selecting a channel. You’re forced to restart just to listen again and even then it resumes freezing up and refusing any input commands. Absolute disaster of an app.
App good on phone, Apple car play needs improvements
by zathras110 on 2021/03/17 04:21

Playback of previous shows fixed!!
by TITNTUFF on 2021/03/15 22:41
This version fixes the playback of previous shows in the history, instead of getting a schedule listing. Thank you!!
Ugh
by Bob1941 on 2021/03/15 19:41
The app wouldn’t let me login nor does it provide any way to find out how to login nor could I find out on the Internet in the Sirius website how to login. User hostile.
Can’t rewind to a previous aired show
by Jumpie on 2021/03/15 01:57
In the latest update while playing a channel, you used to be able to see what played earlier and just tap that show and it would play. Now when you tap the warmer played show, it opens the shows card to see when that show plays.
A plus would be to allow show ratings and comments in the App
by Tupstl on 2021/03/14 18:43
The app is getting better. I use it constantly. A suggested improvement would be to allow ratings of shows in the app and allowing comments on shows.

you can no longer go back and listen to a previous earlier show. That is a critical function of the app (as you can see from the number of people complaining about this change). RadioClassics, and the ability to listen to earlier shows is the main reason I listen to this and use the app. Please change it back.
Eh, bunch of money guy making bad products

On the XM side, it’s mediocre at best, the on demand feature is okay, lot of issues loading content. Probably on purpose, their recent acquisition of stitcher, that app is f-ing terrible. Probably a lot of big wig douchery going on here. I would avoid supporting this brand.
Constantly crashes
by sbelrm on 2021/03/13 19:18
The update ruined my app
Previous shows?
by Repbatavia on 2021/03/13 15:52
No longer able to select and play previous shows from the displayed list. Makes the app pretty much useless to me
App Broken
by jtaylordfw on 2021/03/13 15:37
I’ve been unable to use this app for months. I simply cannot get past the login screen. Support tells me that this is a glitch that is isolated to iPhone users and to wait for an update. So frustrating.
Cant Play Recents!
by Michael Faulkner on 2021/03/13 14:42
This version broke the ability to play recent shows! Recents always played just fine until this version broke them! This version also fails to save turning off the setting “Download only over WiFi”. I turn this setting off, exit the app then open the app again, and this setting is back on!! This version (5.7.5) is apparently fatally buggy!!! (The previous version, 5.7.4 still works! Don’t update to this one!!!)
Educated Failure
by PersonableParson05 on 2021/03/13 03:49
The whole point of this app has now been lost. I’ve gotten so used to coding problems in the app, I hardly use it. Now, they’ve taken away the ability to listen to programs previously played during the day. If it weren’t for my kids, I’d cancel all of my subscriptions.
Great Radio, Ok app
by Constantine on 2021/03/13 03:21
I work with the blind and it would be great if Siri support worked for the phone. Like if it worked like Alexa does with it then awesome.
It was awesome until update
by Chumage on 2021/03/13 01:13
I loved listening to my SiriusXM until the update 5 days ago, now it is not user friendly especially if you are on the road a lot. My favorite station 148 radio classics, is so bad now. I no longer can choose what I would like to listen to earlier in the day, unless I keep hitting rewind. Then on the grouped stories I have to fast forward to find the ones I want. Basically you can only listen to the current story. I am considering quitting SiriusXM after nearly 10 years, because of this unfriendly update. The way it was was great.
Crash...into me
by Mr Heavenly on 2021/03/12 20:08
App crashes quite regularly. Issues with loading on demand content about once or twice a week.
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!
Awful, awful app
by JohnnyW34 on 2020/10/28 16:46
The app is awful. From what I’ve read about the app online, and from the many users who expressed the same complaints as me, I have a strong suspicion that the positive ratings on here are fake. Especially given the number of ratings versus the number of subscribers that Sirius has. I’ve had the app for a while now. Like many, I suspect, I only use it to listen to the “Howard Stern Show.” But the various functions on the app that are supposed to enable you to restart the show from scratch if you don’t tuning immediately when Howard begins, well those functions don’t always work. And if you pause the show at any point, and go back to it, more than half the time it does not resume where you left off. Sometimes, it doesn’t even happen after a pause. If you are walking somewhere listening to the show but not in real time, and you walk through a store’s WiFi or something, the play jumps to the live feed. I’ve read that these problems are very common. A lot of people with the app express this same dissatisfaction. I have brought it to the attention of Sirius, only to be told that I should delete the app and re-download it. Their customer service is as bad as their app. Frankly, because I am so reliant on the app to listen, I am strongly considering canceling my subscription altogether.
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.
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.
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.....
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.
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!!!
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.
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
TRASH CUSTOMER SERVICE
by JUSSLikeCandy on 2020/08/31 13:08
I would never promote you guys the worst customer service I’ve EVER HAD I work at the T-mobile call center service and this would be unacceptable and what would be Labeled a “customer mistreat”. You couldn’t refund me my money because service were so call provided after a free trial was over. Your team didn’t even take the time acknowledge the fact that I’ve tried reaching you guys multiple times to cancel service BEFORE THE TRIAL ENDED but because yall chose to continue a service I was not using or paying for anymore this is my fault. Then soon as I got money on the card that was on the account that yall stopped trying to charge, you went ahead and took the money today. This morning I finally got a hold to someone after calling three times because the 1st two tries I the reps hung up and the messaging team I contacted before y’all opened they reply when they want. You won’t get a message back in time unless you text them multiple times or say a bad review and this happens when your ALREADY CONNECTED with a rep. Its obvious I wasn’t using the service why else would I call for a $8.79 refund it’s not that much money.
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!
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???
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.
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!
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???
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.
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.
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.
CarPlay is a Joke
by antm22 on 2021/01/22 14:42
If you’re planning on using this app with CarPlay, don’t waste your time. I’ve been a SXM user since the early days of XM Radio and the app has always been horrible. The current version is no exception. I use CarPlay now instead of my car’s infotainment system. SXM could care less about their CarPlay users and it shows. The app will frequently not load, not play and show the incorrect song on the favorites screen, among other annoying bugs that never get fixed (even though I report them through the app). Furthermore, the UI is terrible. There is no way to “channel surf” and flip from one favorite to another without touching the screen in the car. The seek buttons attempt to rewind and fast forward instead of flipping through your favorites. They also have not implemented Siri integration so no way to request another station by voice. Using this app in the car has actually made me less of a SXM fan and more of an Apple Music fan. If things don’t improve before my subscription is up this year, I won’t renew.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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! :-)
Very slow to start playing
by Straight Answers on 2021/02/18 19:39
While I love the Sirius stations, the mobile app is problematic. Whereas Pandora almost never has any issues starting up and playing whether on WiFi or not, Sirius is horrible! 9 times out of 10 when I want to start listening I tap the station I want, from my favorites, and the little play arrow turns into a circle that spins for a very long time. Like, some days it does that for hours without ever playing. Yes, I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app. Yes I have closed the app and reopened. That has never changed anything. It is still very much a pain and very unreliable as to whether I will actually get to listen to anything via the app. On average I’d say it takes 15 -20 minutes to get it to start playing. This is regardless of whether I am in my office right by my wifi modem or out on 5g service. Just as problematic either way. Find out how Pandora is so reliable and do that, please. Otherwise, I won’t renew when this subscription expires.
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
Ok but crowded
by DocMagi on 2020/11/16 19:45
At a point an app can become crowded and more complicated than needed. This app is one of them and less would be better. It plays music and videos but because of the clutter the main purpose of the app is lacking. Tried using it on the Apple TV but that is silly because whoever designed the app apparently has never used the Apple TV app or just likes pretty pictures. Deleting it off the tv because it simply freezes up and is worthless. The phone app works but again simple is better with less clutter and less bandwidth required to load and run. Actually you seem to be going in the wrong direction especially considering how expensive your service is compared to better streaming services. When Pandora comes with a car radio I imagine your subscriptions with decline a great deal. Shame that your service is worse and your prices increase.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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
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.
Love the app, but needs a playback speed option for OnDemand
by Poo ln a Cup on 2019/10/12 16:20
I really wish there was a playback speed option for OnDemand. I listen almost exclusively to SXM talk & comedy OnDemand, but I miss a lot of episodes of shows that I love and have listened to for years. The problem with so much good content is finding time to listen to it all. I could listen to more episodes if I could play shows at speeds of 1.25x, 1.5x, etc. Aside from that, this version of the app is great. I’ve been a loyal subscriber for well over 10 years and most of that has been using the app (iOS) or online subscriptions. Developers have really paid attention to what subscribers want and this version has way less crashing than ever before and now with videos and the AppleTV app, it is a total game changer for the platform.
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.
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.
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!

Many loading issues on this app lately!!!!
by lsuzchg on 2021/04/20 19:01
I have had daily issues with this app loading for the past week and a half and no customer service help at all it only works in my car
The app rarely works!
by BitsBoo on 2021/04/20 13:38
For being so expensive you don’t get much. The app continuously freezes or just doesn’t work for hours. And customer service is the worst! They force you to chat so they can push all of their overprice packages on you..and the humans don’t use common sense! I would’ve been better off talking to a computer. I was offered a price then a lower price, then a higher price. 😂😂 when I said to cancel they canceled effective immediately instead of when trial was over in a couple weeks and refunded me $.27. The human “misunderstood” and instead of clarifying went forward with the cancel and not him nor his manager could reverse it. Ridiculous! Such horrible service for such a large company! Spend your $ anywhere else!
App won’t load

App won’t load past sign on. Very frustrating as I can’t use it and my main reason for purchasing is for listening away from the car. Will cancel.

Garbage on the iPhone 11
by Lighningchazz on 2021/04/18 19:46
Constantly trying to connect from WiFi to WiFi. I can pause for an hour, but only skip 3 songs? Who added that stupid feature? Never updates the channels to the current song, you will always see the song that was playing when you opened the app. Stern is a mess on here if you want the app to hold your place on a 3-4 hour show. Get used to ff or rew to find where you left off. Not impressed
iPad use
by RLM0828 on 2021/04/18 18:19
Does not work on iPad. I contacted SiriusXM but I am still unable to use on this iPad.
Worst APP
by JimmyBaker on 2021/04/18 13:15
Always problems streaming Howard’s older interviews. They won’t play or they’ll play under a different title. WORST. APP. EVER.
Great App. Carplay Stinks!
by wolfman_4_ever on 2021/04/18 03:40
I live in Hawaii and there is no XM Satellite service so I use the app with internet service in my car. The app is great but the carplay function is total *rap. Won’t play after reconnection, recents are not recent, limited favorites. The won’t play after you get out of the car and come back is is bonkers.
Why won’t the app load

Too buggy, episodes won't play
by Rob422693567 on 2021/04/17 19:51
I love the content (80's on 8 is my favorite) but in the last few months I cannot get an episode to play all the way through from the mobile app. It will start playing but then after a few minutes it just stops, and then if I try to restart it says "Sorry, this episode is not available", but I know that's not actually the case because the episode plays fine from the SiriusXM website player. If eventually I get the episode to play after a bunch of force-quits and/or restarting the phone, then it starts over from the beginning and I can't skip to where I Ieft off because the number of skips is limited.

Worst Ever
by email gal on 2021/04/14 21:30
I am anxiously awaiting a new radio streaming company to replace Sirius. For all the big names they have on their channel they can’t create an app that works to save their life. It is the most inconsistently performing app of any that I use and I am at the point where I’m ready to dump the whole thing. Half the time if you pause a live show it jumps to a completely different show when you try and restart. Many times I try and play an on demand show and it just goes around and around and around and never plays. It’s just incredibly frustrating that it’s so poorly executed abs when you read countless similar reviews you have to wonder where their money is going!
Stops playing
by mike.lally83 on 2021/04/14 19:14
It will randomly just stop playing. Pauses for no reason whatsoever.
Garbage
by NewsComercialCommercial on 2021/04/14 12:00
App has more bugs than an East Colfax motel! Any glowing review of this wreck is a fake. Sirius charges WAY too much for their lo-fi satellite feed anyway. Signal dropouts and a lousy app are no way to run a business. C'mon Starlink!
Bad connectivity, bad functionality...and there’s no choice but to use it.
by Riverine on 2021/04/14 00:31
Imagine listening to a past episode of a show, and you want to forward to the next episode. Well, tough, you can’t; you have to make your way back to the episode library, scroll down and select the next episode. A big deal, in and of itself...? No, but it’s 2021; basic audio controls aren’t the mystery they might have been in the past. Add to that inexplicable connectivity problems: full bars and strong wifi...? Doesn’t matter, the SiriusXM app will find a way to not play what you just told it to play.
App will not recognize me to allow play outside of car on my I phone
by ggmasue on 2021/04/13 21:34
I am having issues with the app. I have tried several times without success to get the app set up on my iPhone 12 Pro Max. Is there a known issue? Who do I need to speak to so that I can take advantage of this service which is already paid for and is supposed to be available to me?????? So frustrated right now. I will restate after issue is resolved. Thank you.
Barely works. Way too many bugs for pay service.

Screen lock override
by Dan from Manhattan on 2021/04/12 22:09
The screen lock override keeps changing its setting after I switch it from on to off!! Why is this an issue??? This needs to be fixed ASAP this was never an issue after your update last month.
Decent
by dplous on 2021/04/12 02:31
I use it all the time, great for music and sports. The big BUT is the app says a certain song is playing and when you click on the station, a different song is playing. Can’t trust what the app says.
App dropped signal
by Admihur223 on 2021/04/12 00:47
There are way to many dropped signals when using app
This app seriously needs to be updated.
by Stargazer III on 2021/04/12 00:07
I listen to the app all the time around the house and really enjoy it, however, the songs showing on the favorites list is NEVER what is playing on the actual channel. How hard is it to have what’s currently playing actually show on the channel list. Must be pretty hard. I have great wifi, so I don’t see why this continues to happen. Also, it does cut out after listening for a while, but I have a feeling that is intentional to make sure you are still listening. I don’t have any issues in the car, only in the app. Sounds like there a lot of dissatisfied customers. Maybe pay Stern a little less and get your house in order.
Can’t even log in
by tedschuh on 2021/04/11 17:41
I use the same credentials I use for the web and it can’t even recognize the email address I’ve been using with Sirius XM for over 20 years. Completely unusable.
App not Working for iOS
by twilighthigh on 2021/04/11 14:41
Hi, my app keeps shutting down when accessing on my iPhone. Never had any issues before. Please take a look at the app.
Good App, awful CarPlay Support
by Jim19406 on 2021/04/11 13:58
The app itself, on an iPhone is fine. Sounds good, the organization of favorites into tiles is pretty decent, sound quality (on maximum) is great, etc. Where the app needs serious work is with CarPlay. First, the app needs Siri and Siri Shortcuts integration! That should be at the very top of SiriusXMs todo list. Right now, the app is a safety hazard asking for an accident in CarPlay. I should be able to say “Hey Siri, play SiriusXM alt nation” instead of taking my eyes off the road and fumbling through the SiriusXM CarPlay UI. After you have complete Siri and Siri Shortcuts integration, number 2 on your todo list has to be to clean up the UI. Bring the Favorites tiles UI to CarPlay and have the app open to the Favorites tiles, not whatever the random, text-heavy screen it’s opening to right now is. Those two UI cleanups are going to make SiriusXM a much better (and SAFER!) CarPlay app!
Not working with Apple IOS 14.4.2
by MusicMarky on 2021/04/10 20:15
On my iPad with the Apple update for IOS 14.4.2 I cannot log in to the Sirius app for Apple. On my iPhone that has not been updated with the new IOS, I can still log in. Many calls and hours wasted trying to get support from Sirius and no help.
Done with app
by Dingo813 on 2021/04/10 17:05
After updated app, constantly crashes on start. This occurs on both iPhone and iPad. If this can’t be fixed time to delete!!!
Garbage
by Keith2803 on 2021/04/09 19:50
This App is complete GARBAGE!!! I’m sick and tired of the glitches I have to endure with this app for a paid service! Constantly pausing without cause. I’ll be listening to a show and all of the sudden it will just cut out and go to the live show playing and I have no idea where I was in the previous show. For how much money SiriusXM makes you figure they’d have a better app and work out the bugs. Either fix your app or I’ll be canceling my online subscription.
What a crap app
by putinsbastardson on 2021/04/09 19:14
This app is constantly crashing and buffering. I think a group of high school kids can design a better app. Fix this Sirius, you have the money !
Poor quality
by E@$79er on 2021/04/09 13:03
Every two hours or so the music just stops. You have to close the app then re open it. Very annoying.
CarPlay HORRIBLE
by cmccoy11 on 2021/04/08 17:03
CarPlay is horrible with this app. Not usable at all.
It’s a scam
by TaylanTasja on 2021/04/08 04:21
This is app is a total scam even the customer service you can’t cancel or delete account. Please Don’t use you will be disappointed I wish I would’ve known 😑
Stern listener
by Oakie25 on 2021/04/07 18:18
I don’t understand how this app works. I want to listen to a live show, and the app stalls, quits and jumps around. Usually it happened on the hour, and then when you rewind the show to where the app failed, it will begin to stall and jump back to live. Fix the stream!!
Sirus app
by Hav had it on 2021/04/06 23:31
Difficult to add. Sirus needs to work on it
Poor Experience across the Board
by 605turby on 2021/04/06 05:33
I downloaded the SiriusXM app to stream music, podcasts, and games while driving. The app worked for one afternoon, and has not worked since. It refuses to recognize my account email, even though I can sign in to the same account on my Mac with no problems. I tried changing my password on Mac and then signing in with the new password on iPhone to get hit with the same issue. I will be canceling my Sirius subscription and not dealing with this service or app ever again.
Full of Bugs
by JohnnyK777 on 2021/04/05 18:48
Can’t believe the good score on this app. It’s full of bugs. I have an iPhone 11, less than one year old, and this app drops out in the middle of playbacks. It randomly jumps to other shows. And it turns off completely when, say, an unrelated tweet or Instagram alert arrives on my phone. It’s the only app that hasn’t worked on my phone.
Very glitch-prone
by blaakpilot on 2021/04/05 14:07
When the app works as advertised, it’s a decent product, but it is prone to glitches and errors that makes listening frustrating. For example, favorites lists disappear quite often, and on demand shows disappear for days at a time. Streaming and on demand shows will just pause randomly, and downloaded content that’s supposed to be accessible without an internet connection will sometimes not play without internet. I understand that this is a robust app, but for a paid product, the errors are really vexing.
Car play not so good
by Juttin3 on 2021/04/04 01:16
I wish car play would actually work right. 2020 civic. It’s not easy to change stations. You have to go through several menus unless you have favorites setup. Sometime when you try to go to a station nothing happens when you press the screen in car. Sometimes you get menu doesn’t exist errors. I wish there was a option to list all stations so I could scroll through all channels. It would be nice to be able to change stations from steering wheel controls. The whole car play feature of this app needs a overhaul.
App self-pauses
by SUPERDAVEBMW on 2021/04/03 21:18
I really like this app and use it all the time. It does have a strange issue where it’ll randomly pause, sometimes I have to restart the app to get it to play again. I’ve encountered this issue with iPhone 7Plus & iPhone 12 Pro
Needs better search
by Peppers Patriot on 2021/04/02 15:28
I type in Bennington show and it says no results. Are you crazy? It’s the best show on the network.
Buggy but Useful
by Rony Black on 2021/04/02 15:17
I’m used to the app being buggy but now there are NO saved shows available. Tom Papa show, All Out Show, Sway in the Morning...none of their previous shows are on it. What happened?
What happened to my favorites list?
by LindaY in CLE on 2021/04/02 14:57
I have several shows on POTUS radio that I listen to regularly but frequently have to listen to the replays. I had all of these shows in my favorites list under shows. Suddenly, they’re not showing up anymore. This makes it very difficult to go and listen to them when I can! I don’t know what happened, but I can’t even put them back on my favorites list for some reason. Very frustrating!
1st Time ever leaving feedback
by sixpact on 2021/04/02 14:34
This app continues to be more trash after each update. Convoluted GUI, search doesn’t work, favorites disappear at random. Apple needs to decertify this junk
Favorite shows have gone missing AGAIN
by xshedx on 2021/04/02 13:04
It’s been many months since this issue last happened but all my favorite shows have gone missing again. The favorite channels are there but the shows I like are gone.
Bugs
by K9_Carl on 2021/04/02 12:44
App frequently loses favorite shows, can’t retrieve show content. It will play live content just fine, but the on-demand stuff has frequent issues.
Sirius XM app
by FGraz5 on 2021/04/02 12:37
Not sure how this app gets a high rating. The search never works. You can clearly type in a show you listen too and it only works once in awhile. Also if you have favorites they disappear often. Material by Sirius is still excellent but you always think if the have such a great product why don’t they put some more effort it to the app and how well it works
Category section on Howard stern page
by shawn89711 on 2021/04/02 12:22

I’m upset with this app
by vsbshehehe on 2021/04/02 08:35
Why do all my shows and episodes keep disappearing? What is the point of this app if I can’t keep up with what I need? Bring back the history of Howard dag nabbit.
Favorites erased every few months
by RStolins on 2021/04/02 03:21
There are shows on Sirius/XM I like to listen regularly. But every few months, the app erases my show settings, forcing me to find and add the shows again. This behavior is getting tiresome. Seems to be programmed into the app, not a random malfunction.
Buffering Forever and .. No I'm NOT "Offline!
by RealEstateZealot on 2021/04/02 02:11
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??

Buffering..
by The dude cnzjxhnjchjznxm on 2021/03/31 19:30
What’s the point of downloading episodes if it still buffers a pauses. Garbage app
Terrible, crashes constantly!!!!
by Drumbum77 on 2021/03/31 15:02
I got this to listen to Howard, a 3-4 hour show. I cannot get through 1 show without the app freezing or crashing several times. Sometimes it just stops and when I press play, it starts randomly in some other part of show and I have to figure out where I was....very frustrating!!!!
Good app but sometimes loses all favorites...
by RichieL215 on 2021/03/31 12:27
...plus no Bennington show to download from Tuesday, 3/30/21. Thanks.
WORST APP EVER!!
by TABAPPLOVER on 2021/03/31 00:21
Your app NEVER works correctly on any given day!! Shows don’t load. Not available. Get it together for your paying customers!!!!! Ridiculous
Broken for last few updates
by Timm-Again on 2021/03/31 00:14
As stated by previous posts,Howard Stern show downloads stop 2-3 minutes before end of show, or a short sentence keeps repeating, or its in the middle of conversation then stops. App does freeze often, requiring to constantly push play. Most recent, and biggest problem, I can’t download new shows. It always says “download unavailable” or “download interrupted, try again later”. Plenty of hours have past for it to be available. Don’t want to listen live, when I keep hearing same segments. Please Fix!
Horrid little app
by LAMF on 2021/03/30 23:35
I live in a major metro area, I have no troubles listening to podcasts etc.... trying to use this app while walking my dog? Impossible. It takes forever to start up and once it’s going it will switch shows or just stop streaming, go to try and pick original show again and I get the spinning circle for 20 minutes or longer. Now just standing in my house it says I am not connected to the internet. Funny as I am on WiFi or LTE when it tells me that. Garbage.
Pauses
by Crazynsain on 2021/03/30 01:01
Random pausing has caused me to re-think my subscription. I can do with commercials on other apps if this isn’t fixed soon
Never works
by k86A13 on 2021/03/29 17:36
I have been able to log into this app twice. It always gives me an error stating my password is wrong so I have to change it every time. Now I can not login at all. When I try it says that there is “no record” of my username. It is the same as I used before and the same that I use to login to my account online. What is going on????

Still in the dark ages
by DyreLogan on 2021/03/28 08:31
This company is still in the dark ages when it comes to billing. They still want ONLY a credit card or gift card. No option for PayPal like every other company out there. I guess I'll stick to Apple Music and Spotify and choose my own music to listen to.
Frustrated
by JJK1234 on 2021/03/27 20:56
I love listening to this app especially The Highway! Lately I’ve noticed that they’re bringing in what I call filler music! The music doesn’t sound like country music it sounds like it belongs on a different channel. Keep the country station country!
Every single time, the App pauses
by ChrisInKC on 2021/03/26 20:02
I’ve become really used to this happening but it’s annoying enough that I felt like I needed to report it. Every single time I open the app and start playing a station, after a short period of time (1 to 2 minutes) the channel stops playing like the pause button was hit. Fixing it is simple enough by just hitting the play button again, but it’s quite annoying to have to do that literally every single time I use the app. This is NOT an internet issue either.
My app always pauses
by eric4le on 2021/03/26 17:12
Please fix this bug!!!!! It just randomly pauses all the time
App is always experiencing “technical issues”
by benttoolip on 2021/03/25 17:16
About half the time I use this app I get a notification that it is experiencing “technical issues” and just doesn’t load or work. What a pain. Wondering why I’m even paying for a subscription.
Every download cuts off the last 30 seconds

No longer any good

This is no longer a good app. Needs an update to the update!
Locks up constantly
by Poor App 69 on 2021/03/24 19:12
I primarily listen to the Howard Stern Show and the app is constantly jumping around the show and freezing, it’s very frustrating.
Update Is Terrible
by griner72 on 2021/03/24 11:34
Since the last update this app has become crap. Will not renew my subscription.
Fixed!
by Fryer Tucker on 2021/03/23 20:41
Lastly rev (5.75) eliminated the ability to go back in time several hours into a buffer to listen to things. This was fixed in (5.76). Love The app. Been an XM subscriber since their beginning.
Worst. App. Ever.
by Lseashell1973 on 2021/03/23 20:27
This app is by far the worst that I have. It’s constantly pausing play for no reason. If I do have it paused, it’ll just jump to live unprompted. It seems like it has a mind of its own. I hate it 😖
Plays randomly
by J_W_B_6 on 2021/03/23 18:34
The app opens randomly on my iPhone. I have looked through all of the settings and cannot get it to stop. It is very aggravating when you are in the middle of an online meeting and your car stereo decides it wants to play!
Awesome
by Boy Joejo on 2021/03/22 19:50
I love listening in my new car it makes the experience of buying a new car fun knowing you will get a free trial of XM radio 📻
One gripe.
by Danny Wigs on 2021/03/22 19:42
The one complaint I have of Sirius radio is that a few years ago you eliminated the best station available. My go to, Beyond Jazz. I have a trial subscription due to a new vehicle purchase and I will not renew when it expires because of this reason. If this station ( Beyond Jazz) was back on the air, you would have a lifetime subscriber
barely functional
by trentawarrior on 2021/03/22 19:22
i subscribe for ONE show. it will not post to the app, post days late, post on time but be unplayable. today it simply won’t load or play the show. don’t get INVOLVED sirius blows.
Garbage App
by tiredofcorporatehassle on 2021/03/22 10:03
Can’t subscribe to the streaming service through the app, and unsubscribing was a one hour nightmare with customer service.
Love the content but the app is stale
by Mac B from Tennessee on 2021/03/21 13:50
I love how Pandora offers Siri Shortcuts for my favorite stations and HomePod integration. It would be lovely if the Sirius app would follow suit. The content is great, as it has always been, but I will probably use the app less and less if it’s not as convenient as Apple’s Music app or Sirius’s Pandora app.
Now what
by MILKIDOG on 2021/03/20 15:08
Opened this app on my ipad, entered my user name and password, and getting dark screen with Sirius flashing back at me and no way to stop it... will not open!! MJ
App is Garbage, needs a lot of work
by androidsdontrequirenicknames on 2021/03/20 05:31
I can’t think of much about this app that is functional- it’s a pain to browse. I mostly use it to listen to specific programs, and show notifications don’t work properly, songs queued up on a show don’t play in the order that the DJ’s are broadcasting them- and sometimes repeat, and sometimes the program will randomly start over 3/4 of the way through... How does that even happen? Worst part, you can’t skip more than maybe two songs, so going back to where it left off before it messed up is impossible. Often, going live to listen to a live broadcast doesn’t even work. It’s pitiful, and it’s getting worse. I’m considering canceling my subscription because it’s almost unusable.
Terrible on Apple TV
by tjn_dpc on 2021/03/19 13:02
The app constantly freezes and there is no way to rewind or fast forward without the app malfunctioning, going into channel changing mode and ironically refusing to accept any input including selecting a channel. You’re forced to restart just to listen again and even then it resumes freezing up and refusing any input commands. Absolute disaster of an app.
App good on phone, Apple car play needs improvements
by zathras110 on 2021/03/17 04:21
Issues with Apple Car play 1. Favorites sometimes don’t appear 2. No option to “go live” 3. Car play UI just not organized/structured well
Playback of previous shows fixed!!
by TITNTUFF on 2021/03/15 22:41
This version fixes the playback of previous shows in the history, instead of getting a schedule listing. Thank you!!
Ugh
by Bob1941 on 2021/03/15 19:41
The app wouldn’t let me login nor does it provide any way to find out how to login nor could I find out on the Internet in the Sirius website how to login. User hostile.
Can’t rewind to a previous aired show
by Jumpie on 2021/03/15 01:57
In the latest update while playing a channel, you used to be able to see what played earlier and just tap that show and it would play. Now when you tap the warmer played show, it opens the shows card to see when that show plays.
A plus would be to allow show ratings and comments in the App
by Tupstl on 2021/03/14 18:43
The app is getting better. I use it constantly. A suggested improvement would be to allow ratings of shows in the app and allowing comments on shows.
Fix RadioClassics
by Longtimer59 on 2021/03/14 11:11
you can no longer go back and listen to a previous earlier show. That is a critical function of the app (as you can see from the number of people complaining about this change). RadioClassics, and the ability to listen to earlier shows is the main reason I listen to this and use the app. Please change it back.
Eh, bunch of money guy making bad products
by 1247758658548537 on 2021/03/14 02:35
On the XM side, it’s mediocre at best, the on demand feature is okay, lot of issues loading content. Probably on purpose, their recent acquisition of stitcher, that app is f-ing terrible. Probably a lot of big wig douchery going on here. I would avoid supporting this brand.
Constantly crashes
by sbelrm on 2021/03/13 19:18
The update ruined my app
Previous shows?
by Repbatavia on 2021/03/13 15:52
No longer able to select and play previous shows from the displayed list. Makes the app pretty much useless to me
App Broken
by jtaylordfw on 2021/03/13 15:37
I’ve been unable to use this app for months. I simply cannot get past the login screen. Support tells me that this is a glitch that is isolated to iPhone users and to wait for an update. So frustrating.
Cant Play Recents!
by Michael Faulkner on 2021/03/13 14:42
This version broke the ability to play recent shows! Recents always played just fine until this version broke them! This version also fails to save turning off the setting “Download only over WiFi”. I turn this setting off, exit the app then open the app again, and this setting is back on!! This version (5.7.5) is apparently fatally buggy!!! (The previous version, 5.7.4 still works! Don’t update to this one!!!)
Educated Failure
by PersonableParson05 on 2021/03/13 03:49
The whole point of this app has now been lost. I’ve gotten so used to coding problems in the app, I hardly use it. Now, they’ve taken away the ability to listen to programs previously played during the day. If it weren’t for my kids, I’d cancel all of my subscriptions.
Great Radio, Ok app
by Constantine on 2021/03/13 03:21
I work with the blind and it would be great if Siri support worked for the phone. Like if it worked like Alexa does with it then awesome.
It was awesome until update
by Chumage on 2021/03/13 01:13
I loved listening to my SiriusXM until the update 5 days ago, now it is not user friendly especially if you are on the road a lot. My favorite station 148 radio classics, is so bad now. I no longer can choose what I would like to listen to earlier in the day, unless I keep hitting rewind. Then on the grouped stories I have to fast forward to find the ones I want. Basically you can only listen to the current story. I am considering quitting SiriusXM after nearly 10 years, because of this unfriendly update. The way it was was great.
Crash...into me
by Mr Heavenly on 2021/03/12 20:08
App crashes quite regularly. Issues with loading on demand content about once or twice a week.
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!
Awful, awful app
by JohnnyW34 on 2020/10/28 16:46
The app is awful. From what I’ve read about the app online, and from the many users who expressed the same complaints as me, I have a strong suspicion that the positive ratings on here are fake. Especially given the number of ratings versus the number of subscribers that Sirius has. I’ve had the app for a while now. Like many, I suspect, I only use it to listen to the “Howard Stern Show.” But the various functions on the app that are supposed to enable you to restart the show from scratch if you don’t tuning immediately when Howard begins, well those functions don’t always work. And if you pause the show at any point, and go back to it, more than half the time it does not resume where you left off. Sometimes, it doesn’t even happen after a pause. If you are walking somewhere listening to the show but not in real time, and you walk through a store’s WiFi or something, the play jumps to the live feed. I’ve read that these problems are very common. A lot of people with the app express this same dissatisfaction. I have brought it to the attention of Sirius, only to be told that I should delete the app and re-download it. Their customer service is as bad as their app. Frankly, because I am so reliant on the app to listen, I am strongly considering canceling my subscription altogether.
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.
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.
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.....
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.
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!!!
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.
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
TRASH CUSTOMER SERVICE
by JUSSLikeCandy on 2020/08/31 13:08
I would never promote you guys the worst customer service I’ve EVER HAD I work at the T-mobile call center service and this would be unacceptable and what would be Labeled a “customer mistreat”. You couldn’t refund me my money because service were so call provided after a free trial was over. Your team didn’t even take the time acknowledge the fact that I’ve tried reaching you guys multiple times to cancel service BEFORE THE TRIAL ENDED but because yall chose to continue a service I was not using or paying for anymore this is my fault. Then soon as I got money on the card that was on the account that yall stopped trying to charge, you went ahead and took the money today. This morning I finally got a hold to someone after calling three times because the 1st two tries I the reps hung up and the messaging team I contacted before y’all opened they reply when they want. You won’t get a message back in time unless you text them multiple times or say a bad review and this happens when your ALREADY CONNECTED with a rep. Its obvious I wasn’t using the service why else would I call for a $8.79 refund it’s not that much money.
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!
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???
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.
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!
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???
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.
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.
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.
CarPlay is a Joke
by antm22 on 2021/01/22 14:42
If you’re planning on using this app with CarPlay, don’t waste your time. I’ve been a SXM user since the early days of XM Radio and the app has always been horrible. The current version is no exception. I use CarPlay now instead of my car’s infotainment system. SXM could care less about their CarPlay users and it shows. The app will frequently not load, not play and show the incorrect song on the favorites screen, among other annoying bugs that never get fixed (even though I report them through the app). Furthermore, the UI is terrible. There is no way to “channel surf” and flip from one favorite to another without touching the screen in the car. The seek buttons attempt to rewind and fast forward instead of flipping through your favorites. They also have not implemented Siri integration so no way to request another station by voice. Using this app in the car has actually made me less of a SXM fan and more of an Apple Music fan. If things don’t improve before my subscription is up this year, I won’t renew.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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! :-)
Very slow to start playing
by Straight Answers on 2021/02/18 19:39
While I love the Sirius stations, the mobile app is problematic. Whereas Pandora almost never has any issues starting up and playing whether on WiFi or not, Sirius is horrible! 9 times out of 10 when I want to start listening I tap the station I want, from my favorites, and the little play arrow turns into a circle that spins for a very long time. Like, some days it does that for hours without ever playing. Yes, I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app. Yes I have closed the app and reopened. That has never changed anything. It is still very much a pain and very unreliable as to whether I will actually get to listen to anything via the app. On average I’d say it takes 15 -20 minutes to get it to start playing. This is regardless of whether I am in my office right by my wifi modem or out on 5g service. Just as problematic either way. Find out how Pandora is so reliable and do that, please. Otherwise, I won’t renew when this subscription expires.
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
Ok but crowded
by DocMagi on 2020/11/16 19:45
At a point an app can become crowded and more complicated than needed. This app is one of them and less would be better. It plays music and videos but because of the clutter the main purpose of the app is lacking. Tried using it on the Apple TV but that is silly because whoever designed the app apparently has never used the Apple TV app or just likes pretty pictures. Deleting it off the tv because it simply freezes up and is worthless. The phone app works but again simple is better with less clutter and less bandwidth required to load and run. Actually you seem to be going in the wrong direction especially considering how expensive your service is compared to better streaming services. When Pandora comes with a car radio I imagine your subscriptions with decline a great deal. Shame that your service is worse and your prices increase.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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
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.
Love the app, but needs a playback speed option for OnDemand
by Poo ln a Cup on 2019/10/12 16:20
I really wish there was a playback speed option for OnDemand. I listen almost exclusively to SXM talk & comedy OnDemand, but I miss a lot of episodes of shows that I love and have listened to for years. The problem with so much good content is finding time to listen to it all. I could listen to more episodes if I could play shows at speeds of 1.25x, 1.5x, etc. Aside from that, this version of the app is great. I’ve been a loyal subscriber for well over 10 years and most of that has been using the app (iOS) or online subscriptions. Developers have really paid attention to what subscribers want and this version has way less crashing than ever before and now with videos and the AppleTV app, it is a total game changer for the platform.
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.
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.
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!
