TORONTO, September 17, 2019 – SiriusXM Canada today announced a new subscription package built for post-secondary students. The “Student Premier” package gives students all the content in SiriusXM’s “Premier Streaming” package for $4 per month, a 69% discount off the regular price of Premier Streaming of $12.99 per month*. This new Student Premier Package gives subscribers streaming access to content outside their car, on a phone or tablet, at home on connected devices, and online. To subscribe visit www.SiriusXM.ca/student.

“Today’s students grew up listening to SiriusXM in their parent’s car, and now we have a package built just for them,” said Matt Epstein, Vice President, SiriusXM Outside the Car. “Our Student Premier Package enables students to have their own subscription and continue to enjoy the SiriusXM programming they love in their dorm room, at home or on the go. We’re delivering students an incredible selection of content, including the newly launched Personalized Stations Powered by Pandora, Xtra channels, SiriusXM Video, and more, all at a great price.”

Listeners who subscribe to the Student Premier Package will have several options for listening to SiriusXM, including on their smartphones and tablets via the SiriusXM app, via the SiriusXM.ca web player, and on connected devices in the home or dorm including devices with Amazon Alexa, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast, Roku, Apple TV, smart TVs, Sonos speakers, and Sony PlayStation. Check out the many options at SiriusXM.ca/AtHome.

SiriusXM offers an incredibly diverse selection of programming with something for listeners of any age. Subscribers to the Student Premier Package will get SiriusXM’s full lineup of music  programming, featuring 200+ channels of expertly curated, ad-free music channels from virtually every genre, plus a huge selection of talk channels that feature sports, entertainment, comedy, lifestyle, news and more.

This includes the latest addition to SiriusXM’s lineup – Personalized Stations Powered by Pandora – which deliver SiriusXM subscribers much of the unique functionality that Pandora listeners in the U.S. love most. Within the SiriusXM app and on the streaming web player, subscribers can create their own ad-free music stations based on the artist or song they are listening to at that moment, or by searching for their favourite artists. In the SiriusXM service, subscribers can then give songs a thumbs up or thumbs down, or skip songs, to create their own personal channel that plays more of what they want based on their unique tastes.

The Student Premier Package also features more than 100 recently added SiriusXM Xtra channels that promise more music and the ability to skip through songs to find just the right one to match the mood or activity. Students can also tune in to exclusive artist-branded music channels like Diplo’s Revolution, The Garth Channel and Eminem’s Shade 45, concept-based channels like Octane, Pop2K, Hip Hop Nation, The Highway, the new Pandora NOW channel, which showcases the most listened to and fastest-trending new music on Pandora, and many, many more.

In addition, subscribers to the Student Premier Package will get a wide-ranging array of entertainment, news and comedy programming choices, access to several college sports focused channels including ESPNU Radio on SiriusXM, plus other exclusive sports channels such as Barstool Radio, SiriusXM Fantasy Sports Radio, SiriusXM NBA Radio, and NHL channels.
