"On Demand" used to be a prized possession, but these days, the technologically literate just expect it to be everywhere. If it's not on-demand, it's not with the times, right? SiriusXM isn't waiting around to find out, as the satellite radio provider has just launched SiriusXM On Demand, enabling subscribers of its Internet Radio services the ability to listen via its app-based player. That means on-demand satellite radio is coming to iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. You'll be able to choose from over 200 shows and over 2,000 hours of content, whenever you want. Not too shabby.
Specifically, it'll provide -- at no extra charge -- access to over 200 shows from exclusive talk and entertainment, commercial-free music, comedy, and sports; regularly updated "Featured" section allows subscribers to discover more content, including timely interviews, brand new shows, "pop-up" channels, and seasonal series; and On Demand access to over 2,000 hours of SiriusXM content, including more than 200 shows from sports, comedy, exclusive talk and entertainment, and commercial-free music from many genres such as 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.
SiriusXM Internet Radio subscribers listening on Apple iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch will also be able to store select On Demand shows for a period of time on their devices and listen to content when not connected to the Internet. This allows offline listening while traveling on planes or anywhere at anytime without a wireless connection. Subscribers will also get automatic notifications when favorite programs become available for On Demand listening on Apple mobile devices.
SiriusXM On Demand will also soon be available on compatible Android devices, and if you're unsure if it's for you, there's a free 7-day trial available as well.
