How to Listen to SiriusXM Radio Online

Sirius and XM were satellite radio's twin faces in the early 2000s, a time when the medium was still a novel and unproven concept. In 2008, the services merged into SiriusXM Internet Radio and evolved into a top streaming service that lets you listen to music, talk, and sports on your PC, smartphone, tablet, or internet radio device or in a wide range of motor vehicles. Today, SiriusXM focuses heavily on live audio content, and the ease and convenience with which it lets you access the service's many excellent shows and channels make the platform stand out in a packed streaming audio field. As a result, SiriusXM Internet Radio is an easy Editors' Choice pick among streaming music services.

SiriusXM Internet Radio's Many Plans

SiriusXM has a comically expansive list of subscription plans, more so than any other music streaming service we’ve reviewed. The company has tightened its offerings since we last reviewed it, but there are still many options available. Its core plan, Streaming Platinum, gives you more than 400 channels to stream via the app, including original talk shows, sports, Howard Stern’s channels, Pandora stations, and SiriusXM’s in-studio shows and performances. Streaming Platinum can be used with your smartphone, tablet, internet radio device or PC for $10.99 per month.

It is worth noting that SiriusXM charges more for services that include both app and vehicle listening. For example, Platinum is a bundle similar to Streaming Platinum, but it extends the service to cars and vehicles, and bumps the price to $23.99 per month. The Music and Entertainment package, previously called Mostly Music, is a $18.99-per-month bundle for listening devices and vehicles that offers slightly fewer channel options.
