- Streaming Platinum (formerly “Premier Streaming”)
- Streaming of music and entertainment (formerly “Essential Streaming”)
The program listings in these subscription levels remain unchanged. For more information on their offerings, please visit SiriusXM.com/Subscriptions.
With the renaming of its subscription plans, SiriusXM is also improving the SXM app experience for potential new subscribers with new preview and in-app purchase features being rolled out this month. A new user can open the SXM app and “try it out” with a three-hour preview that allows them to experience the spectrum of SiriusXM content. This includes unique programming like Howard Sterns Channels, Drake’s Sound 42, Dave Matthews’ Friday Night Concert Series, the popular Highway Music Row Happy Hour with Buzz Brainard, Kevin Harts Comedy channel, play-by-play broadcast of a favorite team’s hometown and much more. Listeners have instant access to this preview without the need for a credit card.
New subscribers can then sign up for the Streaming Platinum or Streaming Music & Entertainment packages from SiriusXM and receive their first month free of charge without leaving the app experience.
“We are very excited to introduce our new preview and in-app purchase functionality in the SXM app,” said Beatty. “Our ‘Listen Free’ events have always been a great introduction to our service for new listeners looking to try us out. Now you can try us out anytime and access so much great content with our new SXM app preview. And signing up for one of our streaming subscriptions is now easier than ever with in-app purchases. “
