Comcast Announces Partnership With SiriusXM
Customers can access the streaming radio through a dedicated app on a wide variety of devices. The apps are available for Apple TV, Roku, Amazon Fire TV, and Android TV. All of these platforms offer more than 400 channels of programming, including live sports, news, and entertainment. Subscribers can also create custom stations based on their favorite artists. They can also listen to on-demand video in their mobile apps. Alternatively, users can listen to the full SiriusXM Audio Library or skip songs and playlists. There is a three-month trial period for new subscribers. During this period, subscribers will be able to enjoy a free trial of the Platinum tier, which offers over 425 channels and more than 330 ad-free music channels. Other perks of the tier include two exclusive Howard Stern channels, Comedy Gold Minds with Kevin Hart, and Freakonomics Radio.
SiriusXM has a massive video library that features interviews, music performances, and more. It includes more than 11,000 titles. The service also has an extensive selection of podcasts, including Freakonomics Radio, Comedy Gold Minds with Kevin Hart, The Howard Stern Show, and more. Users can also watch shows such as 99% Invisible and Office Ladies.
In addition to its video and podcasting offerings, the company has expanded its reach with its SiriusXM App, which has more than 400 channels of entertainment. It is available on a wide range of devices, and users can sign up for a free trial. To start listening, Comcast customers can sign into the app using their subscription credentials. Some devices and apps have a voice remote for easy access to the SiriusXM channels.
Comcast has partnered with several media companies, including NPR One and Pandora, to deliver a broad portfolio of content across its products and services. Among its other entertainment offerings, the company has its own feature film production and theatrical exhibition divisions. For many years, the company has financed philanthropic pursuits, such as its commitment to providing low-cost internet service to schools.
Moreover, the company is known for its Xfinity Mobile, which offers low-cost calling and texting service for less than $2 a month. However, in order to use the service, a customer must have a cellular data plan and a device that supports cellular connectivity. If the user exceeds three GBs, the service must be switched to the $45 unlimited plan, which requires a two-month subscription. Those who are interested in a cellular data plan can pay monthly, on a month-to-month basis, or by the gigabyte.
While the XM deal doesn"t mean that Comcast customers will be able to negotiate a lower price, the agreement does give them access to SiriusXM"s video library, which the company plans to add to its lineup soon. Moreover, SiriusXM"s chief commercial officer said the deal highlights the expansion of the company.
