Bad update
by Jayman Rider on 2022/05/25 10:55
Still can’t log in from mobile. Keeps saying I need to update to latest version. Which I just did and all the other times an update was available. I pay for this service. Fix this crap before I complain to Sirius XM
Constantly pausing

App constantly pauses every few minutes and the play button spins, half the time requiring it to be closed and reopened…. We pay for this?

Too much talk
by Me 2 three on 2022/05/24 23:02
While I realize there are no commercials and the only adds are the ones that promote xm and the DJ’s should announce songs and station id. I really am not a fan of all these interesting anecdotal blah blah blah that seems to follow every 3 songs played. It’s just too much…….

SiriusXM
by emankcinsitaken on 2022/05/23 22:59
Hey I have this and listen all the time. The channels can be customized to suit one's tastes i.e. more of this or that or less and so on and so forth. Favorites can be preset. I think there’s some serious lag happening sometimes, so much so whenever I touch a channel icon then push rewind and fast forward neither song is the one listed on the station icon. The songs don’t match what’s playing. Still, the song album icon doesn’t match the song playing.

App stops playing
by subeyondchic on 2022/05/22 13:39
The app often stops playing when you’re not live, and at times when you are live. I have to hit the play button in the middle of a program to resume it, which can be frustrating if I’m not near my phone!!

I have two vehicles with Sirius radio but have never been able to stream using the app. The accounts never recognize one another and every time I log in to my account and update user name and password, the app can never find it. Wasted way too much time trying to make a poorly executed app work properly.

Slow and poorly designed user interface for CarPlay
by MattIn603 on 2022/05/21 19:39
The app functions correctly but the user interface is horribly designed. You have to browse multiple menus and folders to get to any channels everyone you open the app. Needs a standard channel list that is immediately browsable like the actual ra dips that have us built in.

Good App But Favorites Don’t Always Show Up
by Plano TX Dude on 2022/05/21 14:51
Generally speaking I like the app a lot. However, it’s Apple CarPlay interface is a bit buggy. I own a 2016 Mustang and I don’t know if it is due to the Ford Sync 3 software or the Sirius App but many times several of my favorites don’t show up or they show ip and then disappear. I’ve updated the Sync software to the latest version and am using the Ford USB hub that provides CarPlay to models before 2017. Otherwise, the app is good and reasonably easy to use.
I’m pretty happy

Meet the Beatles
by Patti Mc. 😊 on 2022/05/18 22:21
By far, my favorite is the Beatles Channel & then The Bridge. When I first met the Beatles I was about 11 or 12 yrs old. I was hooked on them & I knew all the words to each song & I could sing(terribly)w/the Boys, John, Paul, Ringo & George. I was in love with those young boys that were singing those awesome love songs. Now, here I am-71 yrs young & still rockin’ & rollin’! & when I hear the old tunes I step back into my memory & I push recall. I remember that my friend, Linda Bernstein, gave my first Beatles album. It was called, Meet the Beatles. I was in the 6th grade. Thanks for the memories! Patti Mc. 😃

How hard is it to fix the app. Constantly shutting down while listening along or randomly resetting and moving forward while listening to a show and then not being able to back to where I was listening when it reset. Worst app on my phone. Never works properly.

Adjust App to Allow East Switching Between Channels
by Dru610 on 2022/05/18 12:30
The SiriusXM algorithms (or people) that select the music for each channel is among the very best - no other streaming service is nearly as good. However, one area that would be an awesome update would be to allow users to be able to cycle through our designated favorites with the forward and back buttons. It’s pretty worthless to use them for the limited ability to skip through the few songs that we’re able to. Make the app like a standard car radio, or XM in the car, where we can switch our favorite channels easily. My other car isn’t SiriusXM-friendly and I connect via Bluetooth, but I have to pick up my phone to change stations. I believe this deficiency is costing you subscribers.

CarPlay support is buggy
by dhoppas on 2022/05/18 00:57
I bought the streaming subscription, because my new vehicle doesn't have a satellite radio antenna, and I still wanted to listen to it in my car. However, the CarPlay support is very buggy and unusable most of the time. It doesn't display my favorites, or says "menuItem does not exist" when it does display them, and I try selecting one.

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!
Impossible to listen to Podcasts
by ajsidney on 2022/03/04 11:44
I have multiple subscriptions and frankly only have SXM because of Howard. However, every single time I pause a live show for more than a minute, it “loses connection” and drops. This is not a wifi issue btw. That requires me to reopen the player, fast forward to the point in the show and start listening again! This was not an issue a year ago. Secondly, I started listening to podcasts on SXM app. this year. Every single time I pause an episode the same thing happens noted above, and even worse some ADVERTISEMENT for some Entertainment Now channel 790 repeatedly breaks in and then interrupts a show, and begins blaring an ad for this stupid channel. This is every day up to a dozen times a day. The show is completely dropped because of this Ad! Considering I pay for uninterrupted shows (minimal normal podcast advertisements are understood) and no SXM ADS I expect to listen to anything on the App without eardrums being completely blown out by the sound level of the ad, and being irritated beyond belief that I cannot listen to anything that is talk or podcast without constant dropping out or being interrupted. Fix this error ASAP, it has been going on for at least 6 months. This is making me consider dropping all my subscriptions, you know I can stream music anywhere.

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.
Great App
by TaxisLatka on 2019/02/08 22:43
NEW REVIEW (Feb. 2019): Another quick fix to the annoying download issue. Great response. App is back to working great. OLD REVIEW (Feb. 2019): The new update is awful. It’s now back to the same issue of downloaded shows not opening from the last place they were being listened to. You can listen to a downloaded show for two hours and then when you go back to the app instead of it saving your place and continuing playing where it was, it goes back to some previous point at the very beginning of the show. Very annoying and it’s happened before. Thought they had it worked out but now this issue is back. Please fix as soon as possible as this makes the app almost unusable. Wish I never updated. Should’ve stuck with the last version that actually worked. Very angry. OLD REVIEW (2018): Love the updated app. It’s the best. The addition of video is pretty cool, but the Stern Shows are loaded fast (usually same afternoon). Had an issue with holding place of downloaded shows, but it appears to have been resolved. A+
Too many bugs
by DJ Joey G on 2019/09/03 21:23
I have MANY apps on my phone and this one has to be one of the most unreliable. Too many issues to list here but the top two that make me crazy are #1 It stops working randomly mid shows, doesn't matter if its while listening to an on demand episode, a download or live. The app would go into a never ending loading state or just crash completely. #2 the most annoying and dangerous bug is when the app randomly starts playing in my pocket at the worst times. I listen to some XL rated shows with adult language and these shows that i haven't listened to for a few hours or sometimes haven't listened to that day at all will just start playing, full volume, in my pocket. The app is not running so i cant even kill it, i have to frantically turn the volume down then go into my control center and pause it. Its gotten to the point where if i’m going into certain places i have to turn my volume all the way down because i cant trust the app to not start playing, or i need to make sure the last thing i listen to is “safe”....Also when my phone connects to the bluetooth in my vehicles it just starts playing if i want it to or not, again the app isn't even running. Its ridiculous.....
SiriusXM, it’s not just for the car!
by The Gloved1 on 2022/03/31 13:16
We became SiriusXM listeners back at the end of 2012 when we bought our first car that had it. At the time, living in S.E. Missouri, the regular radio stations were horrible…..especially if you liked modern rock and modern metal! Eventually we moved to the southern tier of NY state and the radio stations here were no better. Once we got the app, we now listen all the time at the gym, out on the deck for BBQ get togethers and I’m in the process of opening a Microgreens business and listening to SiriusXM through the app during the shop setup and testing has been awesome. Stations 34 through 41 are the usuals….mainly 37 & 41. Being an old bass head from my late 80’s Cali days with the slammed street trucks, I sometimes do throwback days on 43. The selections that are offered are awesome! Life without it would be like “Masterbating with a cheese grater….sure it can be fun and exciting for awhile, but then it becomes dull and painful!” That one was for The “King of Douchbaggery” himself…..Lord Grant Random!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Least consistent app I still use
by Leaferguy on 2021/11/12 00:14
This app feels like it takes two steps forward, two backwards, and then one to the right. Constantly loses the settings I saved (tune start, streaming quality, etc), and then when it does retain them, they don't work (tune start recently stopped working?). The favorites screen only lets you see six stations at a time. I do not care about the logo of the station. I want to see 15+ stations AND the song that's playing. Oh and now playing? Who knows if that's accurate (hint: it's usually not). It doesn't update if the app isn't in focus, so I get to choose between my GPS app and this one during my commute. Finally, Madison continues to ruin the experience on many of my favorite stations. I do not give a flying fish as to what she thinks about literally anything. Her voice is annoying as it possibly can be, and she manages to be on one of the stations I listen to most during both my drive to and from work. I don't get why this app is so stagnant and doesn't improve regularly. If there was a term to describe the opposite of agile, it would be whatever this app is using.
As much as I use this app I wish it worked better.
by JenniferZ on 2022/04/01 14:59
I use this app all day Monday through Friday and that involves opening and closing the app multiple times a day. At LEAST once a day it won’t load the Home Screen properly if at all and several times it tells me I’m not connected to the internet when I have full bars and can use any other connectivity app on my phone. It’s just Sirius that does it. I’m beginning to think the no internet error has something to do with CarPlay. If I unplug it from CarPlay and close the app and restart it, sometimes that works and then I just plug it back in once it’s working again. I deal with this several times a day. Also, on demand shows are not always loaded or available next day like supposed to. Instead it finally shows up late afternoon or not until next day. These issues won’t make me stop using it since I can’t miss my All Out Show on Shade 45 everyday in my work car…BUUUT, I’m not gonna lie when someone asks me if I like it or if I recommend it. Hope you guys can fix it! Thanks!
New features but lacking polish
by drew_petricc on 2018/11/08 20:01
Lots of glitz and glamour over the new features, & call me crazy, but it actually seems *harder* to just get to my downloaded shows now... Also, if there’s something that looks cool on my home page, better remember it or keep swiping b/c it just scrolls away after a few seconds... sure it’s good to show the different options, but annoying. It also seems to have obfuscated which is actually a new show, or even to just get to what is actually playing live on 100 now. For all its faults, this was not an issue with the old version. All this complaining aside I do like the new app and addition of video clips etc. I’m just looking forward to some revision with usability/ease of use in mind—so keep it up dev team!! Thanks for a great app, I will change to five stars when updated! I do like the more streamlined way to manage/delete downloads and the addition of forward and backward skipping by a few seconds (which was sorely needed). So it’s great & I love it—that’s why I’m saying it just needs a few revisions to be the best in my opinion, thanks.
The more I spend time with this..
by Phantom2089 on 2018/05/14 23:02
The more I’m regretting my app update for it. Why would you fix something that was not broken?? I really hate this new update. There are more cons to point out than pro’s on this! Con: -No mix customizations (BIG NO!) -No info description on each channel and shows within that channel, nor do they provide twitter/phone number to call in the radio channel! -adding favorites just doesn’t work. -backtracking only goes so much as 3 hrs instead of 6 hrs. -there’s no schedule for when upcoming shows are going to broadcast. -channel freezes and locks if your app ended up foreclosing on you or you foreclose the app. (I was always able to resume where I left off EVEN when I foreclosed it, now it makes me lose my place wherever I’m in. REALLY FRUSTRATING ESPECIALLY WITH GRATEFUL DEAD CONCERTS!!!!) -no bright/dim light interface option, I hate how bright this design is now, especially late at night. -takes longer to connect to audio when it used to not on data connection. Pro’s: -Video on-demand for Howard Stern -audio scroller is a bit easier when you want to rewind or fast forward a lot. And that’s all the pros that’s on this app. You have got some MAJOR EDITING to BRING BACK some of the old WITH the new! I feel like my subscription has just plummeted to a mediocre service, I’m really debating on cancelling if they don’t bring back and improve their main qualities of their app. BRING BACK THE OLD APP!!!
Something w/accessibility for all ages.
by lil'fyre on 2019/11/17 23:15
I LOVE Apple Play, don’t get me wrong!! And unfortunately in some newer cars you’ll have to pay for the feature of have Apple Play. I can only assume it’s because the Xirius option is as basic as it can get. Normally, that’s nothing to be bothered about (I’ll just pay for the dealership to ‘install Apple Play’). The eye opener for me was when I bought my now favorite modern car; A 2019 Hyundai Kona. It came with both higher ends of both media options. At first I stuck to what I knew, Apple Play. But the I started leaving Apple Play off, and realizing how much I was enjoying Xirius and the huge variety they offered. And, the price for a subscription was insanely good for all it has (you can customize what you want as well). My favorite is being able the listen to whatever I was, in the car, and picking it up again via my phone, or tablet. Thanks for making options for consumers!!!
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.
App broken on Carplay with iOS 15
by JaoOso on 2021/09/27 01:37
This review is for the app and it’s performance on car play. To be clear the app works great on the phone but the main reason why I have this app and the main reason why I’m subscribed to Sirius XM is to use it in the car via CarPlay. After the iOS 15 update the app really doesn’t work on CarPlay. Doesn’t load anything, favorites don’t load at all and recents load sometimes and sometimes doesn’t. Literally the app is useless at this moment. No matter what I do, wether I open the app on the phone first and then on Carplay. I reinstalled the app. I reinstalled CarPlay. I logged out and then logged back in. Restarted the phone multiple times, NOTHING SEEMS TO FIX THE ISSUE. I am currently using the Sirius XM on the cars native system but because of that I’m now forced to decide wether listening to the cars native SiriusXM or using CarPlay and not listen to SiriusXM because I can’t have both systems open and working. Hopefully there is a fix for this on its way but they should have somehow predicted and prevented this since iOS 15 beta has been out for a while and they had an opportunity to test the app with the new iOS.
Mobile app doesn’t update songs on Sirius VM channels
by ILoveFirstWave33 on 2021/09/07 19:54
When I open the SiriusXM mobile app on my iPhone running iOS 14.7.1 (this issue has been happening for the last year and before release of iOS 14) when i see a song title i like on a particular station, i select it and listen to the song, if the next song played isn't for me, i look for a new song title on a different station…”This is when the PROBLEMS start”…all the stations showing songs that are currently being played, ARE NOT the songs being played when you select that channel !?! This happens everyday when i use the mobile app on my cell phone while using home wifi or my Sprint mobile data plan…my husband has the same cell/same iOS, but with TMobile…and has exact same issues. The only way to correct this glitch, you need to get out of the mobile app and then re-launch/log back into the SiriusXM app on your cell, so the mobile app refreshes the channels. Can you please fix this!! It’s very frustrating…thx, customer since 2013
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
This App is Lame
by MSTampaFL on 2022/05/02 01:45
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???
Volume Bar?
by Lwmavrik on 2017/12/21 21:07
Nice app for the most part, but some silly omissions...Volume Bar for iPad?..., iPhone has it...albeit flawed...it needs to stay on the screen permanently and be further down so you don’t run into the other bar above it that handles rew/ff.... I waited for years for a last channel "jump to" button so you can quickly toggle between two channels?!? Recent‘s from the latest update covers that... it’s about time! I have felt for years like the people who develop this app never use it, because if you’ve ever used a television remote control in your life an A/B button and the volume button is what you use the most and if you haven’t noticed, the volume buttons on phones are often not so easy, particularly if you have a case on it! Thus the volume needs to stay on the LCD screen at all times not appear and disappear ...once you have touched the button on the side, why would you then need to then slide over to the one that appears on the screen.. it’s moronic!! Someone needs to make more of an effort and this can be 5 stars!
Downloads DO NOT WORK
by edbeaton on 2018/06/01 23:14
What’s the point of having a download feature if I still need a connection?? I’ve downloaded on-demand episodes, and they played back fine, until I lost my cell/WiFi signal (my commute includes areas w slow to no connection for stretches). So to me this means that the app is not accessing whatever file is downloaded locally to the phone, and I’m using data to access something I supposedly downloaded to use later. Downloads in previous versions were buggy (also looked for data connection), but I eventually was able to get to episodes already downloaded. Please fix this!!! Update: so the top complaint (landscape on iPad) is fixed, but downloads still don’t work. Yes the downloads complete (didn’t have that issue previously), but you CAN’T ACCESS the “downloaded” files. I get the spinning icon over the play button when selected from the downloads folder (buried in the settings area as ppl have complained about before) and essentially freeze the app. Who do I have to call to get reimbursed for all the data I’m burning through since I can’t download over WiFi to then listen later???
Something has changed!
by B& aid on 2020/01/31 09:23
I have been an XM Radio listener for years and my favorite channel is Radio Classics. I have used the app for years to catch up on content I might have missed. The app used to work well for listening to shows that had already aired. However, after they added Pandora features to the XM app, the app became unreliable. Before, switching from segment to segment worked well and the skip forward feature worked well. Now however, as you near the end of one segment, you can no longer reliably click on a different story segment and have the app react.... the sound just stops and you get a spinning wheel. Nothing happens. You can close the app and restart it sometimes to get it to work but here lately, even that is not working. I even deleted the app and re-installed but no joy. This has become exceedingly frustrating and totally ruins one of the main benefits of subscribing to the digital content service. I wish companies would more thoroughly test their updates before “breaking” perfectly good applications.
Always Reliable!!
by Deedan922 on 2022/05/12 15:21
I love how no matter where I travel, I always have something to listen to. Something I actually want to hear. I hated it when I was without SiriusXM. I thought I could make it with regular “Free” radio, but when on the road… you truly have no idea what your going to pick up in the areas your traveling in. Especially late at night, and since I only speak one language. Some of the available channels did nothing for me. Without SiriusXM there were many nights I could have easily fallen asleep if not for the ability to put it on a channel I hate. That way I didn’t get to relaxed, hey now don’t laugh ;) It worked!! Try listening to something an hour or so you can’t stand, It’s hard to do. You for sure won’t fall asleep!! Thanks SiriusXM!! We won’t be without SIRIUSXM in our cars or home again!! Totally 100% recommended!!!
Major positive changes, I’m happy again.
by Wonderboy67 on 2022/04/02 08:32
I only have this app and Sirius to hear Fox News and Octane. If Fox goes, I will never look back at this app. I used to listen to Howard religiously but he went socialist political and I haven’t listened to him since. I only returned to XM because of the reduced 1 year fee. I would consider a 5 year agreement if it was at the reduced rate I pay now,, not that crazy premium price. There’s no way I would pay over $200. a year for radio with hundreds of channels I’ll never hear. The actual app has made some major overhauling changes and they were way overdue. The actual app is pretty awesome now. I have been a loyal listener for decades and faced decades of bad customer service. SiriusXM should have a plan for (decades loyalty) customers and PLEASE stop having me deal with India to be aggressively sales pitched to and scammed, they’re horrible.
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.
Thanks for fixing play/pause resume issues
by Umar19991 on 2022/03/19 21:34
The recent update from last night fixed the issues of playing and pausing! The issue would be that I would pause content and then when I would resume it would skip to what ever was playing live only in real time and not at the spot where I had paused the music. Thanks so much for fixing, now I can resume where I left off! The only issue now is the auto stop after 2 hours listening to a station. What I do is I hit pause, force close app, and the reopen app and press play to resume station. The next update should include a fix for the automatic stop. But for the recent update that fixed the 1st issue, I am updating my 2 star review to 4 stars. Just fix the auto stop issue and I will give you 5 stars. Thanks so much for listening!
Garbage App
by THE-MACHINE on 2021/07/16 17:34
This app is complete garbage, it will constantly stop playing rendering it completely useless. I have been a customer for over 15 years and can honestly say, the customer service has become dismal. I called to get technical support, it was answered by someone who spoke English poorly and was hard to understand. I was then transferred to their “Advanced Technical Support” and again was answered by another person who didn’t speak clear English l. But, as a bonus, this person was obviously reading from a script and began asking questions the had nothing to do with solving the problem. I had made it clear that I was calling from the very phone the app was on, this individual asked me several times to attempt to access a channel on the app. I explained about 5 times that I can not play the application and talk on the phone simultaneously. After the 5th time of exposing this, I eventually said this was a waste of time and hung up. With out resolving my issue, I’m now here, extremely frustrated. If you’re expecting good service, think again.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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! :-)
Garbage app and it’s been that way for a while
by justicem1 on 2022/01/17 04:51
Tried downloading shows for when I’m in my car and driving through Areas with little or no cell service. After opening the app when no cell or wifi it takes you to the downloaded programs but they won’t play. Circle just spins and it eventually times out. Almost like it’s trying to connect to the internet but that’s the entire point of downloading shows, for when there is no internet or cell service. I’ve never been able to successfully play a downloaded audio program when there was no service. Second issue: App constantly quits playing audio when I leave my house and transition from Wifi to cellular. Literally the app quits playing audio at the same spot on my drive to work every morning like the buffer runs out 5 min after I leave my house. As I’m Trying to write this review and the word box Keeps crashing so I’m using copy and paste to get this many sentences into my review. Awful app. The worst of all my apps.
Bad UI functionality
by apple andy on 2018/01/03 20:48
There’s a slider on the top of the app that is suppose to let you rewind and forward to any point of the broadcast. It works 2% of the time. The slider does not detect me dragging it and then interprets my drag as a swipe taking me to the next or previous channel. How many users navigate channels this way? I feel there should be more emphasis and control of moving where you want to be in the broadcast playing. It’s very hard to get exactly where I want to be on the audio stream. I have to listen to things I already heard before or get taken ahead in the broadcast ruining things I haven’t heard yet. Your “engineers/developers” should make sure the slider is working and is not misinterpreted as a swipe to next channel. Have the slider area have a larger vertical height invisibly or visibly so I can control better. Your UI/UX designers, do some research on how many people swipe left and right to navigate channels. I usually jump into menu for this... rarely is the next or previous channel a task I want to perform or channel I want to listen to. Give more emphasis and UI space for timeline of broadcast control, I want to rewind/fast forward where I want to be on the channel I’m listening to currently. Very frustrating app to use.
Music 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.
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
Terrible
by Keeper007 on 2021/03/02 19:09
Unfortunately, this app (for me at least) is riddle with problems. It actually does ok if you are listening to something live, but becomes very problematic when trying to go back and listen to past programs. It constantly says “Trying to recover audio”. When trying to skip past the commercial, it will skip all the way to the live portion of the channel. Then you have to start the show back over and TRY and skip forward to where you left off. If there was another option than using this app, I would totally be all for it. Unfortunately if you want to listen outside of the car or play past shows, be prepared for a potential headache. This company is way to main stream to have an app that is this terrible. Just my opinion and I hope they finally update the app to something that worked more often than it doesn’t. Especially if you are going back to listen to past show.
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

While I realize there are no commercials and the only adds are the ones that promote xm and the DJ’s should announce songs and station id. I really am not a fan of all these interesting anecdotal blah blah blah that seems to follow every 3 songs played. It’s just too much…….

SiriusXM
by emankcinsitaken on 2022/05/23 22:59
Hey I have this and listen all the time. The channels can be customized to suit one's tastes i.e. more of this or that or less and so on and so forth. Favorites can be preset. I think there’s some serious lag happening sometimes, so much so whenever I touch a channel icon then push rewind and fast forward neither song is the one listed on the station icon. The songs don’t match what’s playing. Still, the song album icon doesn’t match the song playing.

App stops playing

I have two vehicles with Sirius radio but have never been able to stream using the app. The accounts never recognize one another and every time I log in to my account and update user name and password, the app can never find it. Wasted way too much time trying to make a poorly executed app work properly.

Slow and poorly designed user interface for CarPlay
by MattIn603 on 2022/05/21 19:39
The app functions correctly but the user interface is horribly designed. You have to browse multiple menus and folders to get to any channels everyone you open the app. Needs a standard channel list that is immediately browsable like the actual ra dips that have us built in.
Need ability to favorite songs.

Good App But Favorites Don’t Always Show Up
by Plano TX Dude on 2022/05/21 14:51
Generally speaking I like the app a lot. However, it’s Apple CarPlay interface is a bit buggy. I own a 2016 Mustang and I don’t know if it is due to the Ford Sync 3 software or the Sirius App but many times several of my favorites don’t show up or they show ip and then disappear. I’ve updated the Sync software to the latest version and am using the Ford USB hub that provides CarPlay to models before 2017. Otherwise, the app is good and reasonably easy to use.
I’m pretty happy

By far, my favorite is the Beatles Channel & then The Bridge. When I first met the Beatles I was about 11 or 12 yrs old. I was hooked on them & I knew all the words to each song & I could sing(terribly)w/the Boys, John, Paul, Ringo & George. I was in love with those young boys that were singing those awesome love songs. Now, here I am-71 yrs young & still rockin’ & rollin’! & when I hear the old tunes I step back into my memory & I push recall. I remember that my friend, Linda Bernstein, gave my first Beatles album. It was called, Meet the Beatles. I was in the 6th grade. Thanks for the memories! Patti Mc. 😃

Adjust App to Allow East Switching Between Channels
by Dru610 on 2022/05/18 12:30
The SiriusXM algorithms (or people) that select the music for each channel is among the very best - no other streaming service is nearly as good. However, one area that would be an awesome update would be to allow users to be able to cycle through our designated favorites with the forward and back buttons. It’s pretty worthless to use them for the limited ability to skip through the few songs that we’re able to. Make the app like a standard car radio, or XM in the car, where we can switch our favorite channels easily. My other car isn’t SiriusXM-friendly and I connect via Bluetooth, but I have to pick up my phone to change stations. I believe this deficiency is costing you subscribers.

CarPlay support is buggy
by dhoppas on 2022/05/18 00:57
I bought the streaming subscription, because my new vehicle doesn't have a satellite radio antenna, and I still wanted to listen to it in my car. However, the CarPlay support is very buggy and unusable most of the time. It doesn't display my favorites, or says "menuItem does not exist" when it does display them, and I try selecting one.

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!
Impossible to listen to Podcasts
by ajsidney on 2022/03/04 11:44
I have multiple subscriptions and frankly only have SXM because of Howard. However, every single time I pause a live show for more than a minute, it “loses connection” and drops. This is not a wifi issue btw. That requires me to reopen the player, fast forward to the point in the show and start listening again! This was not an issue a year ago. Secondly, I started listening to podcasts on SXM app. this year. Every single time I pause an episode the same thing happens noted above, and even worse some ADVERTISEMENT for some Entertainment Now channel 790 repeatedly breaks in and then interrupts a show, and begins blaring an ad for this stupid channel. This is every day up to a dozen times a day. The show is completely dropped because of this Ad! Considering I pay for uninterrupted shows (minimal normal podcast advertisements are understood) and no SXM ADS I expect to listen to anything on the App without eardrums being completely blown out by the sound level of the ad, and being irritated beyond belief that I cannot listen to anything that is talk or podcast without constant dropping out or being interrupted. Fix this error ASAP, it has been going on for at least 6 months. This is making me consider dropping all my subscriptions, you know I can stream music anywhere.
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.
Great App
by TaxisLatka on 2019/02/08 22:43
NEW REVIEW (Feb. 2019): Another quick fix to the annoying download issue. Great response. App is back to working great. OLD REVIEW (Feb. 2019): The new update is awful. It’s now back to the same issue of downloaded shows not opening from the last place they were being listened to. You can listen to a downloaded show for two hours and then when you go back to the app instead of it saving your place and continuing playing where it was, it goes back to some previous point at the very beginning of the show. Very annoying and it’s happened before. Thought they had it worked out but now this issue is back. Please fix as soon as possible as this makes the app almost unusable. Wish I never updated. Should’ve stuck with the last version that actually worked. Very angry. OLD REVIEW (2018): Love the updated app. It’s the best. The addition of video is pretty cool, but the Stern Shows are loaded fast (usually same afternoon). Had an issue with holding place of downloaded shows, but it appears to have been resolved. A+
Too many bugs
by DJ Joey G on 2019/09/03 21:23
I have MANY apps on my phone and this one has to be one of the most unreliable. Too many issues to list here but the top two that make me crazy are #1 It stops working randomly mid shows, doesn't matter if its while listening to an on demand episode, a download or live. The app would go into a never ending loading state or just crash completely. #2 the most annoying and dangerous bug is when the app randomly starts playing in my pocket at the worst times. I listen to some XL rated shows with adult language and these shows that i haven't listened to for a few hours or sometimes haven't listened to that day at all will just start playing, full volume, in my pocket. The app is not running so i cant even kill it, i have to frantically turn the volume down then go into my control center and pause it. Its gotten to the point where if i’m going into certain places i have to turn my volume all the way down because i cant trust the app to not start playing, or i need to make sure the last thing i listen to is “safe”....Also when my phone connects to the bluetooth in my vehicles it just starts playing if i want it to or not, again the app isn't even running. Its ridiculous.....
SiriusXM, it’s not just for the car!
by The Gloved1 on 2022/03/31 13:16
We became SiriusXM listeners back at the end of 2012 when we bought our first car that had it. At the time, living in S.E. Missouri, the regular radio stations were horrible…..especially if you liked modern rock and modern metal! Eventually we moved to the southern tier of NY state and the radio stations here were no better. Once we got the app, we now listen all the time at the gym, out on the deck for BBQ get togethers and I’m in the process of opening a Microgreens business and listening to SiriusXM through the app during the shop setup and testing has been awesome. Stations 34 through 41 are the usuals….mainly 37 & 41. Being an old bass head from my late 80’s Cali days with the slammed street trucks, I sometimes do throwback days on 43. The selections that are offered are awesome! Life without it would be like “Masterbating with a cheese grater….sure it can be fun and exciting for awhile, but then it becomes dull and painful!” That one was for The “King of Douchbaggery” himself…..Lord Grant Random!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Least consistent app I still use
by Leaferguy on 2021/11/12 00:14
This app feels like it takes two steps forward, two backwards, and then one to the right. Constantly loses the settings I saved (tune start, streaming quality, etc), and then when it does retain them, they don't work (tune start recently stopped working?). The favorites screen only lets you see six stations at a time. I do not care about the logo of the station. I want to see 15+ stations AND the song that's playing. Oh and now playing? Who knows if that's accurate (hint: it's usually not). It doesn't update if the app isn't in focus, so I get to choose between my GPS app and this one during my commute. Finally, Madison continues to ruin the experience on many of my favorite stations. I do not give a flying fish as to what she thinks about literally anything. Her voice is annoying as it possibly can be, and she manages to be on one of the stations I listen to most during both my drive to and from work. I don't get why this app is so stagnant and doesn't improve regularly. If there was a term to describe the opposite of agile, it would be whatever this app is using.
As much as I use this app I wish it worked better.
by JenniferZ on 2022/04/01 14:59
I use this app all day Monday through Friday and that involves opening and closing the app multiple times a day. At LEAST once a day it won’t load the Home Screen properly if at all and several times it tells me I’m not connected to the internet when I have full bars and can use any other connectivity app on my phone. It’s just Sirius that does it. I’m beginning to think the no internet error has something to do with CarPlay. If I unplug it from CarPlay and close the app and restart it, sometimes that works and then I just plug it back in once it’s working again. I deal with this several times a day. Also, on demand shows are not always loaded or available next day like supposed to. Instead it finally shows up late afternoon or not until next day. These issues won’t make me stop using it since I can’t miss my All Out Show on Shade 45 everyday in my work car…BUUUT, I’m not gonna lie when someone asks me if I like it or if I recommend it. Hope you guys can fix it! Thanks!
New features but lacking polish
by drew_petricc on 2018/11/08 20:01
Lots of glitz and glamour over the new features, & call me crazy, but it actually seems *harder* to just get to my downloaded shows now... Also, if there’s something that looks cool on my home page, better remember it or keep swiping b/c it just scrolls away after a few seconds... sure it’s good to show the different options, but annoying. It also seems to have obfuscated which is actually a new show, or even to just get to what is actually playing live on 100 now. For all its faults, this was not an issue with the old version. All this complaining aside I do like the new app and addition of video clips etc. I’m just looking forward to some revision with usability/ease of use in mind—so keep it up dev team!! Thanks for a great app, I will change to five stars when updated! I do like the more streamlined way to manage/delete downloads and the addition of forward and backward skipping by a few seconds (which was sorely needed). So it’s great & I love it—that’s why I’m saying it just needs a few revisions to be the best in my opinion, thanks.
The more I spend time with this..
by Phantom2089 on 2018/05/14 23:02
The more I’m regretting my app update for it. Why would you fix something that was not broken?? I really hate this new update. There are more cons to point out than pro’s on this! Con: -No mix customizations (BIG NO!) -No info description on each channel and shows within that channel, nor do they provide twitter/phone number to call in the radio channel! -adding favorites just doesn’t work. -backtracking only goes so much as 3 hrs instead of 6 hrs. -there’s no schedule for when upcoming shows are going to broadcast. -channel freezes and locks if your app ended up foreclosing on you or you foreclose the app. (I was always able to resume where I left off EVEN when I foreclosed it, now it makes me lose my place wherever I’m in. REALLY FRUSTRATING ESPECIALLY WITH GRATEFUL DEAD CONCERTS!!!!) -no bright/dim light interface option, I hate how bright this design is now, especially late at night. -takes longer to connect to audio when it used to not on data connection. Pro’s: -Video on-demand for Howard Stern -audio scroller is a bit easier when you want to rewind or fast forward a lot. And that’s all the pros that’s on this app. You have got some MAJOR EDITING to BRING BACK some of the old WITH the new! I feel like my subscription has just plummeted to a mediocre service, I’m really debating on cancelling if they don’t bring back and improve their main qualities of their app. BRING BACK THE OLD APP!!!
Something w/accessibility for all ages.

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!!!
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.
App broken on Carplay with iOS 15
by JaoOso on 2021/09/27 01:37
This review is for the app and it’s performance on car play. To be clear the app works great on the phone but the main reason why I have this app and the main reason why I’m subscribed to Sirius XM is to use it in the car via CarPlay. After the iOS 15 update the app really doesn’t work on CarPlay. Doesn’t load anything, favorites don’t load at all and recents load sometimes and sometimes doesn’t. Literally the app is useless at this moment. No matter what I do, wether I open the app on the phone first and then on Carplay. I reinstalled the app. I reinstalled CarPlay. I logged out and then logged back in. Restarted the phone multiple times, NOTHING SEEMS TO FIX THE ISSUE. I am currently using the Sirius XM on the cars native system but because of that I’m now forced to decide wether listening to the cars native SiriusXM or using CarPlay and not listen to SiriusXM because I can’t have both systems open and working. Hopefully there is a fix for this on its way but they should have somehow predicted and prevented this since iOS 15 beta has been out for a while and they had an opportunity to test the app with the new iOS.
Mobile app doesn’t update songs on Sirius VM channels
by ILoveFirstWave33 on 2021/09/07 19:54
When I open the SiriusXM mobile app on my iPhone running iOS 14.7.1 (this issue has been happening for the last year and before release of iOS 14) when i see a song title i like on a particular station, i select it and listen to the song, if the next song played isn't for me, i look for a new song title on a different station…”This is when the PROBLEMS start”…all the stations showing songs that are currently being played, ARE NOT the songs being played when you select that channel !?! This happens everyday when i use the mobile app on my cell phone while using home wifi or my Sprint mobile data plan…my husband has the same cell/same iOS, but with TMobile…and has exact same issues. The only way to correct this glitch, you need to get out of the mobile app and then re-launch/log back into the SiriusXM app on your cell, so the mobile app refreshes the channels. Can you please fix this!! It’s very frustrating…thx, customer since 2013
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
This App is Lame
by MSTampaFL on 2022/05/02 01:45
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???
Volume Bar?
by Lwmavrik on 2017/12/21 21:07
Nice app for the most part, but some silly omissions...Volume Bar for iPad?..., iPhone has it...albeit flawed...it needs to stay on the screen permanently and be further down so you don’t run into the other bar above it that handles rew/ff.... I waited for years for a last channel "jump to" button so you can quickly toggle between two channels?!? Recent‘s from the latest update covers that... it’s about time! I have felt for years like the people who develop this app never use it, because if you’ve ever used a television remote control in your life an A/B button and the volume button is what you use the most and if you haven’t noticed, the volume buttons on phones are often not so easy, particularly if you have a case on it! Thus the volume needs to stay on the LCD screen at all times not appear and disappear ...once you have touched the button on the side, why would you then need to then slide over to the one that appears on the screen.. it’s moronic!! Someone needs to make more of an effort and this can be 5 stars!
Downloads DO NOT WORK
by edbeaton on 2018/06/01 23:14
What’s the point of having a download feature if I still need a connection?? I’ve downloaded on-demand episodes, and they played back fine, until I lost my cell/WiFi signal (my commute includes areas w slow to no connection for stretches). So to me this means that the app is not accessing whatever file is downloaded locally to the phone, and I’m using data to access something I supposedly downloaded to use later. Downloads in previous versions were buggy (also looked for data connection), but I eventually was able to get to episodes already downloaded. Please fix this!!! Update: so the top complaint (landscape on iPad) is fixed, but downloads still don’t work. Yes the downloads complete (didn’t have that issue previously), but you CAN’T ACCESS the “downloaded” files. I get the spinning icon over the play button when selected from the downloads folder (buried in the settings area as ppl have complained about before) and essentially freeze the app. Who do I have to call to get reimbursed for all the data I’m burning through since I can’t download over WiFi to then listen later???
Something has changed!
by B& aid on 2020/01/31 09:23
I have been an XM Radio listener for years and my favorite channel is Radio Classics. I have used the app for years to catch up on content I might have missed. The app used to work well for listening to shows that had already aired. However, after they added Pandora features to the XM app, the app became unreliable. Before, switching from segment to segment worked well and the skip forward feature worked well. Now however, as you near the end of one segment, you can no longer reliably click on a different story segment and have the app react.... the sound just stops and you get a spinning wheel. Nothing happens. You can close the app and restart it sometimes to get it to work but here lately, even that is not working. I even deleted the app and re-installed but no joy. This has become exceedingly frustrating and totally ruins one of the main benefits of subscribing to the digital content service. I wish companies would more thoroughly test their updates before “breaking” perfectly good applications.
Always Reliable!!
by Deedan922 on 2022/05/12 15:21
I love how no matter where I travel, I always have something to listen to. Something I actually want to hear. I hated it when I was without SiriusXM. I thought I could make it with regular “Free” radio, but when on the road… you truly have no idea what your going to pick up in the areas your traveling in. Especially late at night, and since I only speak one language. Some of the available channels did nothing for me. Without SiriusXM there were many nights I could have easily fallen asleep if not for the ability to put it on a channel I hate. That way I didn’t get to relaxed, hey now don’t laugh ;) It worked!! Try listening to something an hour or so you can’t stand, It’s hard to do. You for sure won’t fall asleep!! Thanks SiriusXM!! We won’t be without SIRIUSXM in our cars or home again!! Totally 100% recommended!!!
Major positive changes, I’m happy again.
by Wonderboy67 on 2022/04/02 08:32
I only have this app and Sirius to hear Fox News and Octane. If Fox goes, I will never look back at this app. I used to listen to Howard religiously but he went socialist political and I haven’t listened to him since. I only returned to XM because of the reduced 1 year fee. I would consider a 5 year agreement if it was at the reduced rate I pay now,, not that crazy premium price. There’s no way I would pay over $200. a year for radio with hundreds of channels I’ll never hear. The actual app has made some major overhauling changes and they were way overdue. The actual app is pretty awesome now. I have been a loyal listener for decades and faced decades of bad customer service. SiriusXM should have a plan for (decades loyalty) customers and PLEASE stop having me deal with India to be aggressively sales pitched to and scammed, they’re horrible.
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.
Thanks for fixing play/pause resume issues
by Umar19991 on 2022/03/19 21:34
The recent update from last night fixed the issues of playing and pausing! The issue would be that I would pause content and then when I would resume it would skip to what ever was playing live only in real time and not at the spot where I had paused the music. Thanks so much for fixing, now I can resume where I left off! The only issue now is the auto stop after 2 hours listening to a station. What I do is I hit pause, force close app, and the reopen app and press play to resume station. The next update should include a fix for the automatic stop. But for the recent update that fixed the 1st issue, I am updating my 2 star review to 4 stars. Just fix the auto stop issue and I will give you 5 stars. Thanks so much for listening!
Garbage App
by THE-MACHINE on 2021/07/16 17:34
This app is complete garbage, it will constantly stop playing rendering it completely useless. I have been a customer for over 15 years and can honestly say, the customer service has become dismal. I called to get technical support, it was answered by someone who spoke English poorly and was hard to understand. I was then transferred to their “Advanced Technical Support” and again was answered by another person who didn’t speak clear English l. But, as a bonus, this person was obviously reading from a script and began asking questions the had nothing to do with solving the problem. I had made it clear that I was calling from the very phone the app was on, this individual asked me several times to attempt to access a channel on the app. I explained about 5 times that I can not play the application and talk on the phone simultaneously. After the 5th time of exposing this, I eventually said this was a waste of time and hung up. With out resolving my issue, I’m now here, extremely frustrated. If you’re expecting good service, think again.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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! :-)
Garbage app and it’s been that way for a while
by justicem1 on 2022/01/17 04:51
Tried downloading shows for when I’m in my car and driving through Areas with little or no cell service. After opening the app when no cell or wifi it takes you to the downloaded programs but they won’t play. Circle just spins and it eventually times out. Almost like it’s trying to connect to the internet but that’s the entire point of downloading shows, for when there is no internet or cell service. I’ve never been able to successfully play a downloaded audio program when there was no service. Second issue: App constantly quits playing audio when I leave my house and transition from Wifi to cellular. Literally the app quits playing audio at the same spot on my drive to work every morning like the buffer runs out 5 min after I leave my house. As I’m Trying to write this review and the word box Keeps crashing so I’m using copy and paste to get this many sentences into my review. Awful app. The worst of all my apps.
Bad UI functionality
by apple andy on 2018/01/03 20:48
There’s a slider on the top of the app that is suppose to let you rewind and forward to any point of the broadcast. It works 2% of the time. The slider does not detect me dragging it and then interprets my drag as a swipe taking me to the next or previous channel. How many users navigate channels this way? I feel there should be more emphasis and control of moving where you want to be in the broadcast playing. It’s very hard to get exactly where I want to be on the audio stream. I have to listen to things I already heard before or get taken ahead in the broadcast ruining things I haven’t heard yet. Your “engineers/developers” should make sure the slider is working and is not misinterpreted as a swipe to next channel. Have the slider area have a larger vertical height invisibly or visibly so I can control better. Your UI/UX designers, do some research on how many people swipe left and right to navigate channels. I usually jump into menu for this... rarely is the next or previous channel a task I want to perform or channel I want to listen to. Give more emphasis and UI space for timeline of broadcast control, I want to rewind/fast forward where I want to be on the channel I’m listening to currently. Very frustrating app to use.
Music w/out interrupting commercial.

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.

Terrible
by Keeper007 on 2021/03/02 19:09
Unfortunately, this app (for me at least) is riddle with problems. It actually does ok if you are listening to something live, but becomes very problematic when trying to go back and listen to past programs. It constantly says “Trying to recover audio”. When trying to skip past the commercial, it will skip all the way to the live portion of the channel. Then you have to start the show back over and TRY and skip forward to where you left off. If there was another option than using this app, I would totally be all for it. Unfortunately if you want to listen outside of the car or play past shows, be prepared for a potential headache. This company is way to main stream to have an app that is this terrible. Just my opinion and I hope they finally update the app to something that worked more often than it doesn’t. Especially if you are going back to listen to past show.
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
