SiriusXM unveil the largest new additions to their streaming platform ever
SiriusXM have revealed over 100 new music channels coming to their services making for the biggest addition of content to their platform ever.
SiriusXM are adding more than 100 new curated, commercial-free streaming music channels featuring multiple variations of SiriusXM’s acclaimed lineup. Titled ‘Xtra Channels’, the new channels will “break down and mash up” a range of SiriusXM’s existing channels to match the mood, occassion, or activity.
The new channels are available exclusively to SiriusXM All Access and SiriusXM Premier Streaming subscribers. The music channels all feature skip-ahead functionality so listeners can easily skip between songs they love and pass ones they don’t care about.
SiriusXM’s senior vice president and general manager for music programming, Steve Blatter said: “With more than 100 new commercial-free channels to choose from, SiriusXM is offering even more variety for our subscribers. The new channels have the DNA of current SiriusXM channels that our subscribers love, but offered in a variety of new versions that fit listeners’ tastes, moods, and activities. We have also developed channels that satisfy the demand for combining SiriusXM channels together into exciting new curated experiences. These new channels are sure to make our streaming service even more attractive and valuable to our listeners.”
Last month SiriusXM finalised their acquisition of Pandora. Their combined services put them in a position as the world’s largest audio entertainment company with Pandora‘s music streaming service and SiriusXM’s radio style streaming.
SiriusXM listeners will be able to explore new Xtra Channels that break down and mash up current favorites, allowing listeners to explore top music by decades, discover newly created formats, and hear the latest hit songs by music style, all from the acclaimed SiriusXM music curation team. For fans of 80s on 8, new channels include 80s on 8 Top 100, 80s on 8 Workout and 80s on 8 Party; avid Prime Country fans can check out Prime Country Top 100, Prime Country 80s Hits and Prime Country Party; and BPM listeners who follow dance music will have options that include BPM Top Hits, BPM Discovery and BPM Workout. Pop and rock music is mashed up in channels that play music from across the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, and 2000s. And for those looking for the very latest music that’s about to break, there is a Discovery category featuring new channels from the taste-making programmers behind channels including SiriusXM Hits 1, The Highway, Alt Nation, and The Heat.
