  • CarPlay in iOS12 still broken Oct 10, 2018

    By Smiffleblurf
    I purchased an unlimited cellular Internet subscription to use this app in CarPlay instead of using my actual SiriusXM antenna on my car — THATS’s how much I like using this app. The last redesign was an amazing step forward. I dreaded updating to iOS 12 and sure enough the app on CarPlay wouldn’t load any of my favorites and recents. Even after this recent CarPlay fix update it didn’t fix much. Recents list still doesn’t load at all. When I still pull up my channel favorites it’ll either never load or have this long delay until it loads or I have to dangerously open the app on my phone to jumpstart it to load. I did notice once I was able to get the channels to load in favorites the recents tab finally loaded up, but still that’s an awkward bug. Just really bad loading issues in regards to displaying listed information in CarPlay all around. Hopefully a fix is coming soon so that I don’t have to use a one star review to report a bug, but the one star is well earned when the “App Support” link takes you to a FAQ site that doesn’t list this issue or a bug reporting option for this app. This app isn’t even listed on the Contact Us support options. This whole experience is adding misanthropy fuel.

  • Serve a 2nd vehicle for free, or use as a fix for an obstructed antenna Jun 23, 2018

    By RV Sciencephile
    By purchasing the high end SiriusXM service for one satellite receiver, you get this excellent streaming capability as a free bonus. If you have a smartphone with a decent data plan, you don’t need to increase satellite charges by adding a subscription for the other vehicle(s). Get it for one, then use your phone to stream the web based service thru the Bluetooth or cable connection to the audio system in your additional vehicle(s). It’s a terrific bargain for me, as I have 2 cars and two RV’s, and I can get full channel service for all four with just one subscription. Also, for those with vehicles (like my truck camper) that have difficulty getting a clear usable obstruction-free sat signal for their partially shadowed antenna, you can subscribe to service for the vehicle radio, then when in conditions when your antenna isn’t reliable, switch to using your smartphone for streaming to that radio from the same sat account via cell service providers. Thanks SiriusXM for offering this excellent, flexible service at a fair package price!

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

    It has the music I like,but reliability is terrible. It drops the Wi-Fi connection easily and so I am continually having to reconnect. Somtimes it just comes back as having transmission.difficulties - not related to the wifi. Very frustrating when the app is offline for hours. Update 07/192021. Same complaint as 2018. Constantly disconnecting while my wifi is working for all other devices. Reception area always 3 bars or more.
  • 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.

    I hate this fn app. It constantly skips ahead in shows when not listening live causing you to lose your spot an hour and a half into the show. I have tried listening to shows on demand from upto two days ago and it skips to whatever is playing on that channel live in the middle of the pod. It's quickly becoming a waste of time and money at this point.

    By KC Cam
    App constantly stops working saying connection failed or trying to connect. Happens while on Wi-Fi or streaming; it doesn't matter. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app many times. And the quality of music is absolute garbage; compressed files sound like it's coming from a tin can. This happens either streaming or in my wife's car radio.
  • 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.....
  • Jul 21, 2021

    By S Dee
    The only reason I'm not going with 1 star is because it is a pretty good app when it works. But therein lies the problem; most times it stops playing whatever I'm listening to. I have to close and reopen the app daily. It's beyond frustrating especially when an on demand selection won't play at all. I've seen many similar complaints online. I appreciate the option being free, don't get me wrong. But at this point, just increase the subscription price as usual and get more servers!!!!!!

    Last update messed up big time,. All it does is buffer now,.. what a shame,.. so now if my screen turns off the media stops playing,. If I turn the screen on it plays again,.. sounds fishy to me,. I already cancelled my membership,. Still terrible,. Never wants to connect,. And no its not my phone, because Spotify and other services work just fine,.
  • 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.

    Great app other than the music stopping by itself every 10 minutes, or so. Seems many others have the same issue. I pay for streaming only, so I want this app to work otherwise I'll have to cancel and go with another music streaming service. I turned off battery optimization, so that's not the issue.

    By Michael Mosley
    The app pastes from your clipboard every time you open it, which strikes me as a violation of my privacy. The app is super glitchy in general. It doesn't work in battery saver mode, every other app that plays audio in the background on my phone is able to. The scrubbing features are awful it's incredibly hard to rewind or fast forward. Sometimes the app will just jump to live. Sometimes I just won't play. Casting through the app works a solid 40% of the time. The favorites aren't get wiped.
  • Jul 18, 2021

    Getting annoying with how many times the app will restart a song or just simply close. I read the reviews on the latest update (5/24 I think) and it doesn't seem to be any better. Spotify is looking better and better EDIT: taking my review from 2 to 1 star because of how many times the app will just randomly stop for no reason at all. I tried updating it but that only seems to of made it worse. What is the point of paying for a subscription to an app that won't deliver on its promises???
  • 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.

  • 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!!!

    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!!!
  • Sirisously Addicted Sep 5, 2018

    By Cindy.Curl.Beye.Iowa
    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

    Had nothing but quality customer service. Had a issue with my signal at first, but within minutes of addressing the issue it was fixed with a better rate than I was originally given. Wish that the app was a little easier to navigate while I'm driving in my other cars, it would be much nicer to be able to link multiple cars to a single account. Seeing as I have 3 vehicles , I only have it in one.

    App is stable. Lots of great content. I wish it was easier to stream pandora content with Alexa.

    Great app, which allows u to listen to all your favorite content on your schedule, commercial free. But can be glitchy. Programming not available. Freezing part-way through. But fortunately, these instances r the exception, not the rule. Another nice feature is the ability to listen across devices and pick-up, right where u left off.
  • 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.

    It has the music I like,but reliability is terrible. It drops the Wi-Fi connection easily and so I am continually having to reconnect. Somtimes it just comes back as having transmission.difficulties - not related to the wifi. Very frustrating when the app is offline for hours. Update 07/192021. Same complaint as 2018. Constantly disconnecting while my wifi is working for all other devices. Reception area always 3 bars or more.
  • 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.

    The music variety is awesome! Love that about it BUT can't always listen to stations you want, will constantly loose connection for no reason like I literally just did, won't always find the channels you want when you search for them and it's kinda slow to load. Overall the only thing I can say that is really good about this app is the music selection. The rest is terrible. I'd recommend not even trying it to be honest.
  • 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.
  • 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!

    App constantly stops working saying connection failed or trying to connect. Happens while on Wi-Fi or streaming; it doesn't matter. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app many times. And the quality of music is absolute garbage; compressed files sound like it's coming from a tin can. This happens either streaming or in my wife's car radio.
  • 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.....

    The only reason I'm not going with 1 star is because it is a pretty good app when it works. But therein lies the problem; most times it stops playing whatever I'm listening to. I have to close and reopen the app daily. It's beyond frustrating especially when an on demand selection won't play at all. I've seen many similar complaints online. I appreciate the option being free, don't get me wrong. But at this point, just increase the subscription price as usual and get more servers!!!!!!

    App is terrible. Always stops and loses connection or "trying to reconnect" even when I have good or great service. Would stop playing after every song, until I figured out to go into the app settings and turn on screen lock override. The problem is I have to do this every time I open the app, and I have to leave the app open or it will stop (just trying to "minimize" app not close. I've had XM for 15 years and love the service, but the app has been more headache than useful for the past year.
  • 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.

    I hate this fn app. It constantly skips ahead in shows when not listening live causing you to lose your spot an hour and a half into the show. I have tried listening to shows on demand from upto two days ago and it skips to whatever is playing on that channel live in the middle of the pod. It's quickly becoming a waste of time and money at this point.

    Last update messed up big time,. All it does is buffer now,.. what a shame,.. so now if my screen turns off the media stops playing,. If I turn the screen on it plays again,.. sounds fishy to me,. I already cancelled my membership,. Still terrible,. Never wants to connect,. And no its not my phone, because Spotify and other services work just fine,.
  • 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.

    Great app other than the music stopping by itself every 10 minutes, or so. Seems many others have the same issue. I pay for streaming only, so I want this app to work otherwise I'll have to cancel and go with another music streaming service. I turned off battery optimization, so that's not the issue.
  • Jun 30, 2021

    By Michael Mosley
    The app pastes from your clipboard every time you open it, which strikes me as a violation of my privacy. The app is super glitchy in general. It doesn't work in battery saver mode, every other app that plays audio in the background on my phone is able to. The scrubbing features are awful it's incredibly hard to rewind or fast forward. Sometimes the app will just jump to live. Sometimes I just won't play. Casting through the app works a solid 40% of the time. The favorites aren't get wiped.

    By Rico
    Getting annoying with how many times the app will restart a song or just simply close. I read the reviews on the latest update (5/24 I think) and it doesn't seem to be any better. Spotify is looking better and better EDIT: taking my review from 2 to 1 star because of how many times the app will just randomly stop for no reason at all. I tried updating it but that only seems to of made it worse. What is the point of paying for a subscription to an app that won't deliver on its promises???
  • 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.
  • Downloads DO NOT WORK Jun 1, 2018

    By edbeaton
    What’s the point of having a download feature if I still need a connection?? I’ve downloaded on-demand episodes, and they played back fine, until I lost my cell/WiFi signal (my commute includes areas w slow to no connection for stretches). So to me this means that the app is not accessing whatever file is downloaded locally to the phone, and I’m using data to access something I supposedly downloaded to use later. Downloads in previous versions were buggy (also looked for data connection), but I eventually was able to get to episodes already downloaded. Please fix this!!! Update: so the top complaint (landscape on iPad) is fixed, but downloads still don’t work. Yes the downloads complete (didn’t have that issue previously), but you CAN’T ACCESS the “downloaded” files. I get the spinning icon over the play button when selected from the downloads folder (buried in the settings area as ppl have complained about before) and essentially freeze the app. Who do I have to call to get reimbursed for all the data I’m burning through since I can’t download over WiFi to then listen later???
  • This App is Lame May 22, 2020

    By MSTampaFL
    No matter how many updates they release, this app is still a PIECE OF JUNK. And I'm tired of being polite about it. First, the saved on-demand favorites randomly disappear causing me to have to re-save them. Sometimes a reboot will bring them back, sometimes not. This bug has been in the last 3 or 4 versions. Also, the app won't "let go" of what I was listening to before to go to live or another choice. Example, listening to an on-demand news episode and then wanting to go to the live channel, the wheel just spins and spins and the eventually goes back to the main menu with the prior show still stuck in the player. Shutting down the app and restarting doesn't fix it. And there is no longer a go "Live" button in the on-demand GUI. The only workaround I've found is that you have to change to another channel and then go back to the channel you want in order for the player to clear and "let go" of what you were previously listening to. Is there some excuse SiriusXM can't hire competent developers to fix this app? Especially since we pay extra to use it???
  • Horribly Unstable Apr 18, 2018

    By SoFar87
    This app is a disaster. Continually has issues saying it cannot determine my location so it won’t load. Which makes no sense as my WiFi and cellular networks are working perfectly. Live in a major city and never have other app issues when this happens. Definitely happens more after a recent update which always seems to make things worse. The volume bar is hidden and the scrolling is terrible because the bar is too small and not sensitive at all. I clearly have no clue how their QA development team tests the app in real world scenarios and things is production ready. In fairness there are some great features (when the app works) and the UI is pretty decent. But some of the basic functionality for volume, scrolling within an stream like Howard Stern, and overall application stability are a disaster. Sirius has no competition. They clearly Need to just focus on the basics of building a rock solid app and stop with all the gimmick junk. Subscriber since their beginning but very disappointed they continue to ruin this app. And for the record, these issues happen on a brand new iPhone X.
