SiriusXM Subscribers Can Now Access Content On DemandBy: Josh Wolford - August 8, 2012
SiriusXM is making a huge move to allow their subscribers access to programming at their convenience. Today, the company announced SiriusXM On Demand for web and iOS.
With SiriusXM On Demand, subscribers immediately get access to over 200 shows, or 2,000 hours of programming that they can listen to anytime they want. On Demand content will be updated daily, and the back catalog of content will continue to expand, says Sirius.
“On Demand access to SiriusXM programming broadens the availability of our exclusive content, allowing subscribers to enjoy their favorite shows and try new shows on their own time so they never miss a minute of the programming they love,” said Bob Law, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Streaming Services and Products. “SiriusXM produces great original content, and we are thrilled we can now make so much of it available on our listeners’ schedules through SiriusXM On Demand.”
Another part of the new on demand service is “Featured Content,” which Sirius says will help people discover new shows and seasonal content.
Along with the 2,000 hours of show and music, Sirius is also opening up the archives to subscribers. Here’s some of the content that will be on demand:
The Howard Stern Show, Bob Dylan’s Theme Time Radio Hour, Tom Petty’s Buried Treasure, select Jimmy Buffett concerts, The Opie & Anthony Show, The Jamie Foxx Show, Ask Martha featuring Martha Stewart, Dr. Laura, The Bob Edwards Show, Mad Dog Unleashed featuring Christopher “Mad Dog” Russo, Ripken Baseball, Rotten Tomatoes™ Radio and many more.
SiriusXM listeners will also have access to curated selections from deep within the SiriusXM archives, including SiriusXM’s exclusive Artist Confidential series and Town Hall specials with Bruce Springsteen, Roger Waters, Tom Petty, Usher, Ringo Starr, Coldplay, Nirvana, Cardinal Timothy Dolan, Coach K, and many others. In addition, listeners will get access to exclusive subscriber events, music specials, interviews from across SiriusXM’s sports channels, and much more.
For now, Sirius’ new On Demand service is only available on their web player and iOS devices. They say that Android compatibility is coming soon.
