TORONTO, May 15, 2018 – SiriusXM Canada, the country’s leading audio entertainment company, announced today it will make its wide array of content available for free for the first time on both its satellite and streaming platform as part of the introduction of a new SiriusXM app, which delivers a wholly new streaming experience that includes expanded programming, greater discovery, more intuitive recommendations and the introduction of SiriusXM Video.
SiriusXM content will be available for free for a limited time until May 29 for anyone with an inactive satellite radio in their car, or who has an internet connected mobile device and/or web access. Any non-subscriber in the United States and Canada can tune in to sample SiriusXM seamlessly, without any registration requirements.
That means access to The Beatles Channel, Eminem’s Shade 45, Kevin Hart’s new comedy channel, LL COOL J’s new classic hip-hop channel, Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Radio, Kenny Chesney’s No Shoes Radio, Diplo’s Revolution, Mad Dog Sports Radio and Doctor Radio plus hundreds more channels, all easily available during this free listening period.
This is the first time Howard Stern’s two fulltime audio channels, which include his Howard Stern Show, are streamed free to anyone, with no subscription or login required.
Users of the app will also get access to more than 5,000 hours of live music performances and curated playlists, On Demand shows, comic routines, audio documentaries, exclusive interviews, and expertly curated content from an ever-expanding On Demand library.
The two-week free listening period coincides with the launch of SiriusXM’s all-new and totally re-designed app for iOS and Android devices. During the free tune-in period listeners can also sample SiriusXM by using the re-designed streaming web player at SiriusXM.ca, or by turning on any previously inactive satellite radio in their car.

Features of the new SiriusXM app include:
A Totally New Look
The SiriusXM app features a brand-new look and capabilities that help users find more of what they like across SiriusXM’s 200+ channels. By making it easier to navigate through categories, find shows, and access On Demand programming, users will discover programming that they previously may not have known SiriusXM offered.
We have made it easier to learn about all of the amazing programs and channels available. Using personalized preferences and listening history, “ForYou” recommendations pull from SiriusXM’s huge catalogue of live and On Demand programming to make the next great piece of music, talk, news, entertainment or sports programming easier to learn about and access.
More On Demand Content
SiriusXM’s library of recorded On Demand content features more than 5,000 hours of programming, which grows every day. The new SiriusXM app makes it much easier to access shows, interviews, specials, and performances whenever it is most convenient for you.
SiriusXM Video will be available on the new SiriusXM app with a ”sneak peek” of video from Howard Stern, arranged and presented in an easy to view way, with more video coming soon.
