    Love my satellite radio. Use it every day and it is essential in my area because all of my local radio stations are HORRIBLE. Never play what I like (hard rock, metal, rap rock, etc.) And it has helped be turned on to new bands I, honestly, never would hear if it wasn't for them. My only ceveats I have is I wish there was just a premier tier for all the music stations and news only, since I don't listen to anything else. Oh, and UNLIMITED SKIPS ON THE APP! Other than that, love it to death.

    makes the work day go by. it's nice to have included with my subscription. probably would not pay individual for it but it's nice. it would be nice if there were a little more variety in the channels. like if I listen to 60s on 6 there is probably only 100 songs that play over and over. I love them but slipping some new ones in. same for lithium, bridge and I imagine other channels.
  • I Love Channel 90 so I bought Premium Pkg Apr 5, 2020

    By RealTennesseeMcCoy
    I am huge racing fan and especially L❤️VE NASCAR and LeMann racing fan. I began listening to XM Radio my 2005 BMW X-5 and I’ve had it ever since. Now, SirusXm Radio, Initially, I only listened to channel 90 Nascar Radio. Over years I have listened to ESPN OR Fox SportS during college football season. We have it in all 4 cars and two of the tractors. I had not deeply explored other channels until I begin using the app on my mobile device when I’m mowing in Spring amd Summer 12-16 hours a week. They even have workout music by the decade and most recently added Indy Channel, with hosts, Jack Arute and AJ Allmendinger ! Call and they will negotiate a price with you. Only one warning..if you give a credit card number they will auto renew every year. I did not like that and it took a month for them to understand I would either be billed at home the old fashioned way- or cancel. Auto renew takes away a locked in price. They renew at market price.. which was always double the rate I got when I called or this last period I did online via chat session.
  • Great App Feb 8, 2019

    By TaxisLatka
    NEW REVIEW (Feb. 2019): Another quick fix to the annoying download issue. Great response. App is back to working great. OLD REVIEW (Feb. 2019): The new update is awful. It’s now back to the same issue of downloaded shows not opening from the last place they were being listened to. You can listen to a downloaded show for two hours and then when you go back to the app instead of it saving your place and continuing playing where it was, it goes back to some previous point at the very beginning of the show. Very annoying and it’s happened before. Thought they had it worked out but now this issue is back. Please fix as soon as possible as this makes the app almost unusable. Wish I never updated. Should’ve stuck with the last version that actually worked. Very angry. OLD REVIEW (2018): Love the updated app. It’s the best. The addition of video is pretty cool, but the Stern Shows are loaded fast (usually same afternoon). Had an issue with holding place of downloaded shows, but it appears to have been resolved. A+
  • Very real potential Oct 7, 2021

    By Gabead
    I tried this app and it is very original how they incorporated Pandora into the app. Everything was easy to navigate and easy to understand how to use. In fact , it is one of the best designed streaming apps I have used in a long time. The negative is the volume being low whether I use Bluetooth or USB cable. Another negative is you only get limited skips when using the Pandora feature. This is 2021 and we still have to deal with limited skips even if we pay the subscription? XM has a serious contender on their hand if they can just fix these issues. In addition, there would be times a song wouldn’t load or the wrong information would be displayed for what was actually playing. Once in awhile the app would crash. The price is just right for the services they provide and there are way more channels than what you would get on your typical SXM radio hardware in your vehicle. I have subscribed believing this app will be fined tuned down the road. This app seriously needs to support landscape mode. This would help us those who use vent mounts in our vehicle and frees up the vent more unblocking it so the air/heat will flow better.

    As of 14 OCT 2021 this problem is still intermittent... I am not sure if it is this version of the app or this is only relative to the Samsung NOTE 20. There have been at least 17 instances where I could not kill the app by choosing CLOSE ALL and swiping up or choosing the CLOSE ALL and tapping the screen. The SiriusXM app just continues to play whatever I was listening to. INSTEAD I have to go to Settings > Apps > then FORCE STOP.
  • God help you if . . . . . . Update Jun 1, 2018

    By Queenbeedlg
    Like me, you use your iPad in landscape mode. I’ve changed every relevant setting I can think of to get this app to load in landscape mode (as it once did prior to one of the latest updates) but, alas, to no avail. This is so much of a problem that saving the $20 a month I pay for this service is under serious consideration. It’s too much money to pay for the inconvenience of having to turn my iPad 90 degrees to read the app. I would have given it less than one star had that been possible. Update: I’m happy to report that the people at Sirius were listening and have addressed this landscape vs. portrait mode problem. It’s nice to know that there are still some companies out there who listen to their customer’s complaints and respond to them positively, especially in such a short period of time. Happily, I will not have to cancel my subscription, and I can recommend this app without reservation at a solid 5 stars.

    Not bad but could be better. The signal drops far too frequently for me. I can play other apps that stream music but it never fails that in the middle of a song or an interview that I really wanted to hear, this app will just drop. There are shows that I listen to on this app that I end up having to finish listening to them on another app. So it has to be the app.
  • No landscape mode; update horrible for RadioClassics Jun 7, 2018

    By PetiteFrog
    UPDATE: Thanks for adding the landscape mode back - although why on earth was it removed in the first place??? I have upgraded my rating from 1 star to 3 stars. What would give it one more star - display the times of the previously played RadioClassic shows. I have no idea what played when. You provide the option to listen to earlier shows, but the segments aren’t descriptive enough so I am having to go through all of them to find the show I want to listen to. PREVIOUS REVIEW: As others have stated, not having the ability to view using landscape mode is very annoying. However, not nearly as annoying and useless as what the upgrade has done to the RadioClassics station. Before the update, I could see all the programs that played in the past 5 or 6 hours and select one of those shows - easily. Now —- you can’t see the time a previous show was played and have to guess which item it is in the viewable segments. Viewing all the segments is nearly impossible. No way to easily see and select earlier segments. The upgrade has made the RadioClassics stations impossible to navigate.
  • CarPlay buggy, no chrome cast support but good sound quality Oct 25, 2018

    By Cypherstream
    So glad they recently added Apple CarPlay, however it’s very buggy. Many times favorites don’t load, recents may not load, or the car play screen is just blank. It does work better if you unlock your phone first, but who can do that if your driving and have your phone put down (it auto locks fairly quickly). What is wrong with SiriusXM not offering chromecast functionality? It seems this would be the easiest way to get SXM in your house. To be able to chrome cast SXM would be a great asset to listen at home when doing household work. Other than the very buggy CarPlay support and lack of Chromecast feature, the sound quality is far better than what you get on the actual satellite. You also have access to many more channels and on demand content. This is why I prefer to use the app via CarPlay instead of my cars built in XM tuner. My car only goes up to channels in the 200’s. The app has channels into the 700’s! I’m no longer missing out on Faction or the Emo Project, indie 1.0, or Rock Bar. If only CarPlay worked all the time, this would be a killer app.

  • Awful, awful app Oct 28, 2020

    By JohnnyW34
    The app is awful. From what I’ve read about the app online, and from the many users who expressed the same complaints as me, I have a strong suspicion that the positive ratings on here are fake. Especially given the number of ratings versus the number of subscribers that Sirius has. I’ve had the app for a while now. Like many, I suspect, I only use it to listen to the “Howard Stern Show.” But the various functions on the app that are supposed to enable you to restart the show from scratch if you don’t tuning immediately when Howard begins, well those functions don’t always work. And if you pause the show at any point, and go back to it, more than half the time it does not resume where you left off. Sometimes, it doesn’t even happen after a pause. If you are walking somewhere listening to the show but not in real time, and you walk through a store’s WiFi or something, the play jumps to the live feed. I’ve read that these problems are very common. A lot of people with the app express this same dissatisfaction. I have brought it to the attention of Sirius, only to be told that I should delete the app and re-download it. Their customer service is as bad as their app. Frankly, because I am so reliant on the app to listen, I am strongly considering canceling my subscription altogether.

    App is basically useless now. Can't get through one song without "lost connection", but almost full bars 5G and every other app works fine. Have to reboot the phone for it to work again, just for it to "lose connection" after another song or two. If there's not a fix real soon Sirius about to get canceled.

    Most frustrating app...EVER! Stops playing every 5 minutes, changes what I'm TRYING to listen to. Comes free with my subscription, free is paying too much. They should have to pay me to use this worthless app, unfortunately I don't have any other way to listen to the programs I want. Sucks is an UNDERSTATEMENT!!! Update: 5 weeks later and is remarkably gotten worse. If there was ANY other way to listen I would pay for that as a separate service.
  • Too many bugs Sep 3, 2019

    By DJ Joey G
    I have MANY apps on my phone and this one has to be one of the most unreliable. Too many issues to list here but the top two that make me crazy are #1 It stops working randomly mid shows, doesn't matter if its while listening to an on demand episode, a download or live. The app would go into a never ending loading state or just crash completely. #2 the most annoying and dangerous bug is when the app randomly starts playing in my pocket at the worst times. I listen to some XL rated shows with adult language and these shows that i haven't listened to for a few hours or sometimes haven't listened to that day at all will just start playing, full volume, in my pocket. The app is not running so i cant even kill it, i have to frantically turn the volume down then go into my control center and pause it. Its gotten to the point where if i’m going into certain places i have to turn my volume all the way down because i cant trust the app to not start playing, or i need to make sure the last thing i listen to is “safe”....Also when my phone connects to the bluetooth in my vehicles it just starts playing if i want it to or not, again the app isn't even running. Its ridiculous.....

    What's up with this app??? I have 2 active subscriptions with use of this app included. I did use it frequently on my phone connected to my vehicle. It worked fine for the longest time then suddenly (within the past 2 months) developed issues. Haven't been able to log on, getting the error message, "We're experiencing technical issues". Tried deleting and reinstalling to no avail. Seems the issues should have been corrected by now. Is it being corrected or should I dump it and move on?

    I have no idea whats going on with the app 😕. But you open the app to sign in it takes forever to open to sign in and once you do it takes another 10 minutes to open!! 🙄 then you log out and next time you open the app takes ten min it opens right away and don't ask for the sign in..... so hmmmm!! 🙄hopefully it gets better. Other than that music is good.

  • Favorites won’t save & keep getting deleted Jun 18, 2020

    By Food Jock
    Does Sirius even read these user reviews and care about customer service? For 2 months all my favorites keep getting deleted. Lately it seems to occur almost daily, sometimes even twice in a day. Before that it had been every couple weeks. I’ve seen other reviews claiming the same thing. Do you even read the user reviews? Last month I even sent a Feedback email to tech support reporting the issue and was given a response that they will reply back within 24 hrs. Nope. Nothing. Not even a follow up. And meanwhile, the problem has gotten worse and it’s very time consuming to constantly go back & forth re adding shows to the favorites list. In addition, 3 times in the past week and as recently as last night, I haven’t been able to access anything because the app keeps saying “we’re sorry but you seem to be offline. Please check your WiFi connection or try again later.” There’s been absolutely nothing wrong with my internet & WiFi. This used to be my favorite app and I use it daily mostly for MLB Radio. But lately this app has been horrible and I’m paying too much money for an annual subscription to put up with this crap.

    It stops after each song. It then has the unending !. It use to have the spinning wheel of inadequacy. And then it starts the next song or goes back and plays the song you just listened to all over again. Don"t "Try It Out" ... Using app on wifi, played 2 songs and app crashed. Would not do a thing. Closed app and restarted... played 1 song and stopped working. It use to work fine...maybe it's time to dump Sirius and use a real streaming service.

    Again Why can't I rewind or start from beginning? It's been years and multiple phones. Whenever a start show over it just crashes. Can someone help please? Settings or something must be wrong. App is horrible. Crashes on every phone every few mins. Actually had enough will be cancelling everything after contract is up. Can't take it anymore it's been years get a good app.

    I rely on this app every day. I'm a truck driver and I couldn't imagine my working day without SiriusXM. It keeps me up to day with news, politics, and sports. Most importantly, I listen to all my favorite music through it. Yes, it's one of my favorite apps & without a doubt my one & only music app.
  • The more I spend time with this.. May 14, 2018

    By Phantom2089
    The more I’m regretting my app update for it. Why would you fix something that was not broken?? I really hate this new update. There are more cons to point out than pro’s on this! Con: -No mix customizations (BIG NO!) -No info description on each channel and shows within that channel, nor do they provide twitter/phone number to call in the radio channel! -adding favorites just doesn’t work. -backtracking only goes so much as 3 hrs instead of 6 hrs. -there’s no schedule for when upcoming shows are going to broadcast. -channel freezes and locks if your app ended up foreclosing on you or you foreclose the app. (I was always able to resume where I left off EVEN when I foreclosed it, now it makes me lose my place wherever I’m in. REALLY FRUSTRATING ESPECIALLY WITH GRATEFUL DEAD CONCERTS!!!!) -no bright/dim light interface option, I hate how bright this design is now, especially late at night. -takes longer to connect to audio when it used to not on data connection. Pro’s: -Video on-demand for Howard Stern -audio scroller is a bit easier when you want to rewind or fast forward a lot. And that’s all the pros that’s on this app. You have got some MAJOR EDITING to BRING BACK some of the old WITH the new! I feel like my subscription has just plummeted to a mediocre service, I’m really debating on cancelling if they don’t bring back and improve their main qualities of their app. BRING BACK THE OLD APP!!!
  • Something w/accessibility for all ages. Nov 17, 2019

    By lil'fyre
    I LOVE Apple Play, don’t get me wrong!! And unfortunately in some newer cars you’ll have to pay for the feature of have Apple Play. I can only assume it’s because the Xirius option is as basic as it can get. Normally, that’s nothing to be bothered about (I’ll just pay for the dealership to ‘install Apple Play’). The eye opener for me was when I bought my now favorite modern car; A 2019 Hyundai Kona. It came with both higher ends of both media options. At first I stuck to what I knew, Apple Play. But the I started leaving Apple Play off, and realizing how much I was enjoying Xirius and the huge variety they offered. And, the price for a subscription was insanely good for all it has (you can customize what you want as well). My favorite is being able the listen to whatever I was, in the car, and picking it up again via my phone, or tablet. Thanks for making options for consumers!!!

    I can no longer listen to regular FM radio. I love my Sirius. Wish you would have done more of a tribute to David Cassidy. A channel for a short time in his honor would be amazing. At the same time, 70’s On 7 should be playing more of David’s stuff from his solo albums, as well as Partridge Family recordings; definitely not enough of the latter, and absolutely none of the forbearing. David broke many records for various things in his career, which widely go unrecognized. I was really disappointed to see no periodicals in his memory, especially a Rolling Stones mag dedication. Such a talented artist should be remembered. I also enjoy 60’s On 6 to get my Mad Men fix; love your regular morning DJ - he’s been everywhere! Cowboy Bob & the 40’s Channel are greatly appreciated when I’m missing my grandparents. I also use the Toddler Channel a lot for my grandchildren. And when I’m feeling a little blue, it’s wonderful that I can listen Christmas music any time of the year to cheer me up! Any chance we could have a Dean Martin channel for a short while? Frank’s channel don’t play him enough. What a legend! And believe it or not, Lawrence Welk still has a huge fan base that tunes in to Public TV every Saturday night to watch his reruns... The Welk Channel, at least during the holidays ? Love you guys. Never go away! Sincerely, Faithful Subscriber Cindy Beye Marshall County, Iowa

    I love my satellite radio in my car with the app I can now listen outside my car. Plus I get more of the special channels, even though I know my radio gets more channels than lot of them out there. Plus you can go back and catch specials you may have missed. I know you can subscribe to the a service without any other way to access the Sat radio, I suggest you try it and you can find out why I refuse to be without my SiriusXM service. If you like music you can't go wrong.

    As of 14 OCT 2021 this problem is still intermittent... I am not sure if it is this version of the app or this is only relative to the Samsung NOTE 20. There have been at least 17 instances where I could not kill the app by choosing CLOSE ALL and swiping up or choosing the CLOSE ALL and tapping the screen. The SiriusXM app just continues to play whatever I was listening to. INSTEAD I have to go to Settings > Apps > then FORCE STOP.

    App is very nice and fairly easy to use. Although I always have trouble with having it stream on my smartphone and then through the Bluetooth on my truck radio. The sound continues to come out of my phone and not my truck. Can anyone help me solve this most likely very simple issue that my simple mind can't seem to figure out?
  • Very real potential Oct 7, 2021

    By Gabead
    I tried this app and it is very original how they incorporated Pandora into the app. Everything was easy to navigate and easy to understand how to use. In fact , it is one of the best designed streaming apps I have used in a long time. The negative is the volume being low whether I use Bluetooth or USB cable. Another negative is you only get limited skips when using the Pandora feature. This is 2021 and we still have to deal with limited skips even if we pay the subscription? XM has a serious contender on their hand if they can just fix these issues. In addition, there would be times a song wouldn’t load or the wrong information would be displayed for what was actually playing. Once in awhile the app would crash. The price is just right for the services they provide and there are way more channels than what you would get on your typical SXM radio hardware in your vehicle. I have subscribed believing this app will be fined tuned down the road. This app seriously needs to support landscape mode. This would help us those who use vent mounts in our vehicle and frees up the vent more unblocking it so the air/heat will flow better.

    Not bad but could be better. The signal drops far too frequently for me. I can play other apps that stream music but it never fails that in the middle of a song or an interview that I really wanted to hear, this app will just drop. There are shows that I listen to on this app that I end up having to finish listening to them on another app. So it has to be the app.
  • No landscape mode; update horrible for RadioClassics Jun 7, 2018

    By PetiteFrog
    UPDATE: Thanks for adding the landscape mode back - although why on earth was it removed in the first place??? I have upgraded my rating from 1 star to 3 stars. What would give it one more star - display the times of the previously played RadioClassic shows. I have no idea what played when. You provide the option to listen to earlier shows, but the segments aren’t descriptive enough so I am having to go through all of them to find the show I want to listen to. PREVIOUS REVIEW: As others have stated, not having the ability to view using landscape mode is very annoying. However, not nearly as annoying and useless as what the upgrade has done to the RadioClassics station. Before the update, I could see all the programs that played in the past 5 or 6 hours and select one of those shows - easily. Now —- you can’t see the time a previous show was played and have to guess which item it is in the viewable segments. Viewing all the segments is nearly impossible. No way to easily see and select earlier segments. The upgrade has made the RadioClassics stations impossible to navigate.
  • CarPlay buggy, no chrome cast support but good sound quality Oct 25, 2018

    By Cypherstream
    So glad they recently added Apple CarPlay, however it’s very buggy. Many times favorites don’t load, recents may not load, or the car play screen is just blank. It does work better if you unlock your phone first, but who can do that if your driving and have your phone put down (it auto locks fairly quickly). What is wrong with SiriusXM not offering chromecast functionality? It seems this would be the easiest way to get SXM in your house. To be able to chrome cast SXM would be a great asset to listen at home when doing household work. Other than the very buggy CarPlay support and lack of Chromecast feature, the sound quality is far better than what you get on the actual satellite. You also have access to many more channels and on demand content. This is why I prefer to use the app via CarPlay instead of my cars built in XM tuner. My car only goes up to channels in the 200’s. The app has channels into the 700’s! I’m no longer missing out on Faction or the Emo Project, indie 1.0, or Rock Bar. If only CarPlay worked all the time, this would be a killer app.
  • New features but lacking polish Nov 8, 2018

    By drew_petricc
    Lots of glitz and glamour over the new features, & call me crazy, but it actually seems *harder* to just get to my downloaded shows now... Also, if there’s something that looks cool on my home page, better remember it or keep swiping b/c it just scrolls away after a few seconds... sure it’s good to show the different options, but annoying. It also seems to have obfuscated which is actually a new show, or even to just get to what is actually playing live on 100 now. For all its faults, this was not an issue with the old version. All this complaining aside I do like the new app and addition of video clips etc. I’m just looking forward to some revision with usability/ease of use in mind—so keep it up dev team!! Thanks for a great app, I will change to five stars when updated! I do like the more streamlined way to manage/delete downloads and the addition of forward and backward skipping by a few seconds (which was sorely needed). So it’s great & I love it—that’s why I’m saying it just needs a few revisions to be the best in my opinion, thanks.

    Have to switch between channels, as they start to play the same thing over again. Although, some of the other stations play the same music too. The app crashes after playing for a bit. Have to uninstall and reinstall app from time to time. 2 PAC STATION IS EDITED!!!🤦‍♂️ Overall, still a good station for background noise at work.
  • Volume Bar? Dec 21, 2017

    By Lwmavrik
    Nice app for the most part, but some silly omissions...Volume Bar for iPad?..., iPhone has it...albeit flawed...it needs to stay on the screen permanently and be further down so you don’t run into the other bar above it that handles rew/ff.... I waited for years for a last channel "jump to" button so you can quickly toggle between two channels?!? Recent‘s from the latest update covers that... it’s about time! I have felt for years like the people who develop this app never use it, because if you’ve ever used a television remote control in your life an A/B button and the volume button is what you use the most and if you haven’t noticed, the volume buttons on phones are often not so easy, particularly if you have a case on it! Thus the volume needs to stay on the LCD screen at all times not appear and disappear ...once you have touched the button on the side, why would you then need to then slide over to the one that appears on the screen.. it’s moronic!! Someone needs to make more of an effort and this can be 5 stars!

    I like what they have, but I thought they would have MANY more programs than they have. I. Paying for premium, but am wondering how long I will keep how long with my subscription.with my subscription.the quality of sound is wonderful! But free podcasts, YouTube, etc, has a vast variety. I'm not sure why I'm paying money for this.
  • Mobile app doesn’t update songs on Sirius VM channels Sep 7, 2021

    By ILoveFirstWave33
    When I open the SiriusXM mobile app on my iPhone running iOS 14.7.1 (this issue has been happening for the last year and before release of iOS 14) when i see a song title i like on a particular station, i select it and listen to the song, if the next song played isn't for me, i look for a new song title on a different station…”This is when the PROBLEMS start”…all the stations showing songs that are currently being played, ARE NOT the songs being played when you select that channel !?! This happens everyday when i use the mobile app on my cell phone while using home wifi or my Sprint mobile data plan…my husband has the same cell/same iOS, but with TMobile…and has exact same issues. The only way to correct this glitch, you need to get out of the mobile app and then re-launch/log back into the SiriusXM app on your cell, so the mobile app refreshes the channels. Can you please fix this!! It’s very frustrating…thx, customer since 2013
  • Too many bugs Sep 3, 2019

    By DJ Joey G
    I have MANY apps on my phone and this one has to be one of the most unreliable. Too many issues to list here but the top two that make me crazy are #1 It stops working randomly mid shows, doesn't matter if its while listening to an on demand episode, a download or live. The app would go into a never ending loading state or just crash completely. #2 the most annoying and dangerous bug is when the app randomly starts playing in my pocket at the worst times. I listen to some XL rated shows with adult language and these shows that i haven't listened to for a few hours or sometimes haven't listened to that day at all will just start playing, full volume, in my pocket. The app is not running so i cant even kill it, i have to frantically turn the volume down then go into my control center and pause it. Its gotten to the point where if i’m going into certain places i have to turn my volume all the way down because i cant trust the app to not start playing, or i need to make sure the last thing i listen to is “safe”....Also when my phone connects to the bluetooth in my vehicles it just starts playing if i want it to or not, again the app isn't even running. Its ridiculous.....

    I have no idea whats going on with the app 😕. But you open the app to sign in it takes forever to open to sign in and once you do it takes another 10 minutes to open!! 🙄 then you log out and next time you open the app takes ten min it opens right away and don't ask for the sign in..... so hmmmm!! 🙄hopefully it gets better. Other than that music is good.
  • Something has changed! Jan 31, 2020

    By B& aid
    I have been an XM Radio listener for years and my favorite channel is Radio Classics. I have used the app for years to catch up on content I might have missed. The app used to work well for listening to shows that had already aired. However, after they added Pandora features to the XM app, the app became unreliable. Before, switching from segment to segment worked well and the skip forward feature worked well. Now however, as you near the end of one segment, you can no longer reliably click on a different story segment and have the app react.... the sound just stops and you get a spinning wheel. Nothing happens. You can close the app and restart it sometimes to get it to work but here lately, even that is not working. I even deleted the app and re-installed but no joy. This has become exceedingly frustrating and totally ruins one of the main benefits of subscribing to the digital content service. I wish companies would more thoroughly test their updates before “breaking” perfectly good applications.
  • Awful, awful app Oct 28, 2020

    By JohnnyW34
    The app is awful. From what I’ve read about the app online, and from the many users who expressed the same complaints as me, I have a strong suspicion that the positive ratings on here are fake. Especially given the number of ratings versus the number of subscribers that Sirius has. I’ve had the app for a while now. Like many, I suspect, I only use it to listen to the “Howard Stern Show.” But the various functions on the app that are supposed to enable you to restart the show from scratch if you don’t tuning immediately when Howard begins, well those functions don’t always work. And if you pause the show at any point, and go back to it, more than half the time it does not resume where you left off. Sometimes, it doesn’t even happen after a pause. If you are walking somewhere listening to the show but not in real time, and you walk through a store’s WiFi or something, the play jumps to the live feed. I’ve read that these problems are very common. A lot of people with the app express this same dissatisfaction. I have brought it to the attention of Sirius, only to be told that I should delete the app and re-download it. Their customer service is as bad as their app. Frankly, because I am so reliant on the app to listen, I am strongly considering canceling my subscription altogether.

    By Robert Dodd
    App is basically useless now. Can't get through one song without "lost connection", but almost full bars 5G and every other app works fine. Have to reboot the phone for it to work again, just for it to "lose connection" after another song or two. If there's not a fix real soon Sirius about to get canceled.
  • Oct 20, 2021

    By Tom C
    Most frustrating app...EVER! Stops playing every 5 minutes, changes what I'm TRYING to listen to. Comes free with my subscription, free is paying too much. They should have to pay me to use this worthless app, unfortunately I don't have any other way to listen to the programs I want. Sucks is an UNDERSTATEMENT!!! Update: 5 weeks later and is remarkably gotten worse. If there was ANY other way to listen I would pay for that as a separate service.

    By Dennis Zielinski
    What's up with this app??? I have 2 active subscriptions with use of this app included. I did use it frequently on my phone connected to my vehicle. It worked fine for the longest time then suddenly (within the past 2 months) developed issues. Haven't been able to log on, getting the error message, "We're experiencing technical issues". Tried deleting and reinstalling to no avail. Seems the issues should have been corrected by now. Is it being corrected or should I dump it and move on?

    impossible to listen to howard live. constantly loses connection and buffers. have complained to them multiple times about this and their response is always the same.. uninstall and reinstall. never works. the issue isnt on my end. every other streaming service works flawlessly when im at work, i can even watch full movies with disney+ and youtube videos have zero issue playing.
  • Favorites won’t save & keep getting deleted Jun 18, 2020

    By Food Jock
    Does Sirius even read these user reviews and care about customer service? For 2 months all my favorites keep getting deleted. Lately it seems to occur almost daily, sometimes even twice in a day. Before that it had been every couple weeks. I’ve seen other reviews claiming the same thing. Do you even read the user reviews? Last month I even sent a Feedback email to tech support reporting the issue and was given a response that they will reply back within 24 hrs. Nope. Nothing. Not even a follow up. And meanwhile, the problem has gotten worse and it’s very time consuming to constantly go back & forth re adding shows to the favorites list. In addition, 3 times in the past week and as recently as last night, I haven’t been able to access anything because the app keeps saying “we’re sorry but you seem to be offline. Please check your WiFi connection or try again later.” There’s been absolutely nothing wrong with my internet & WiFi. This used to be my favorite app and I use it daily mostly for MLB Radio. But lately this app has been horrible and I’m paying too much money for an annual subscription to put up with this crap.

    It stops after each song. It then has the unending !. It use to have the spinning wheel of inadequacy. And then it starts the next song or goes back and plays the song you just listened to all over again. Don"t "Try It Out" ... Using app on wifi, played 2 songs and app crashed. Would not do a thing. Closed app and restarted... played 1 song and stopped working. It use to work fine...maybe it's time to dump Sirius and use a real streaming service.

    Again Why can't I rewind or start from beginning? It's been years and multiple phones. Whenever a start show over it just crashes. Can someone help please? Settings or something must be wrong. App is horrible. Crashes on every phone every few mins. Actually had enough will be cancelling everything after contract is up. Can't take it anymore it's been years get a good app.

    By Hans Hayes
    The App often just cuts out after several minutes of use when not on wifi. Even with full cell service/coverage, the App ceases to properly function, making for frustrating service. I see it more often when listening to a certain news station. This really needs to be corrected. An unstable App, in this day & age is unacceptable. Especially for a business that charges so much.
  • TRASH CUSTOMER SERVICE Aug 31, 2020

    By JUSSLikeCandy
    I would never promote you guys the worst customer service I’ve EVER HAD I work at the T-mobile call center service and this would be unacceptable and what would be Labeled a “customer mistreat”. You couldn’t refund me my money because service were so call provided after a free trial was over. Your team didn’t even take the time acknowledge the fact that I’ve tried reaching you guys multiple times to cancel service BEFORE THE TRIAL ENDED but because yall chose to continue a service I was not using or paying for anymore this is my fault. Then soon as I got money on the card that was on the account that yall stopped trying to charge, you went ahead and took the money today. This morning I finally got a hold to someone after calling three times because the 1st two tries I the reps hung up and the messaging team I contacted before y’all opened they reply when they want. You won’t get a message back in time unless you text them multiple times or say a bad review and this happens when your ALREADY CONNECTED with a rep. Its obvious I wasn’t using the service why else would I call for a $8.79 refund it’s not that much money.
