Under the newly announced Xtra Channels, SiriusXM is putting out more than 100 new curated commercial-free streaming music channels featuring multiple variations of SiriusXM’s lineup, giving listeners more music variety. Xtra Channels break down and combine many of the SiriusXM channels to match any mood, occasion or activity users want, according to the company.
The service’s new Xtra Channels are available exclusively to SiriusXM All Access and SiriusXM Premier Streaming subscribers – as well as all SiriusXM trialers – via the SiriusXM app, web player, and select connected devices. These music channels also feature skip-ahead functionality that makes it easier for listeners to find the songs they love.
“With more than 100 new commercial-free channels to choose from, SiriusXM is offering even more variety for our subscribers. The new channels have the DNA of current SiriusXM channels that our subscribers love, but offered in a variety of new versions that fit listeners’ tastes, moods and activities,” said Steve Blatter, Senior Vice President and General Manager for Music Programming, SiriusXM. “We have also developed channels that satisfy the demand for combining SiriusXM channels together into exciting new curated experiences. These new channels are sure to make our streaming service even more attractive and valuable to our listeners.”
Listeners will be able to explore new Xtra Channels that “break down and mash up current favorites, allowing listeners to explore top music by decades, discover newly created formats, and hear the latest hit songs by music style, all from the acclaimed SiriusXM music curation team,” the company said in its announcement this week.
