Android Phones To Get Sirius XM-Streaming App

4/23/2010 02:20:44 PM Eastern

New
York - Sirius XM plans May availability of an app that will enable select
Android-based smartphones to stream 120 channels of satellite-radio content via
Wi-Fi or cellular.

 Last year, the company launched a similar
app
for the iPhone and Wi-Fi-equipped iPod Touch.

The
new app works with the Motorola Droid and Google's Nexus One, which both use
the Android 2.1 OS. The app will be available as a free download through the
Android Market directly to the handset or by surfing to www.siriusxm.com/android.
Consumers who download
the app will be able to register for a seven-day free trial to Sirius XM Premium Online service,
which also streams Sirius XM content over the Internet to PCs. The online
service costs $2.99/month if a consumer already has a traditional
satellite-radio subscription.

Cellular- and Wi-Fi-streamed channels include sports,
talk, entertainment, news, comedy and commercial-free music channels. Content
not available on the Android smartphones or iPhone are MLB and NFL play-by-play,
Sirius NASCAR Radio and Howard Stern.
