T-Mobile has announced it is partnering with SiriusXM to offer access to an enhanced Pandora music experience for its wireless customers.
Citi analysts don’t believe Spotify’s big podcasting bet is paying off, according to a note they sent to investors.
SiriusXM reported record fourth quarter and full-year 2018 operating and financial results today. However, the best is yet to come for SiriusXM as their Pandora acquisition begins to impact the company.
Pandora is considered the world’s most powerful music discovery platform, using algorithms to determine which music to play to a subscriber at any given time. The question is how do they do it so successfully?
SiriusXM CEO James Meyer says that Pandora will make Sirius subscribers more sticky and will overall reduce churn. Meyer indicates that Pandora’s focus on advertising revenue will also help Sirius monetize the two-thirds of auto sales free trials that don’t convert to a paying SiriusXM subscriber.
In the earning call SiriusXM CEO Jim Meyer talked about adding 300,000 net new self-pay subs in the third quarter, Amazon partnership, Pandora Acquisition, Connected Vehicle initiatives paying off, and how it’s going with Automatic Labs, which they acquired last year.
Tim Westergren, Co-founder, and former Pandora CEO commented on CNBC’s Fortt Knox show: I think that Apple, Amazon, Google is going to rue the day they let Pandora get away from them.
