How to Get Sirius XM On TV

Q. I have a subscription to SiriusXM radio in my car, but I was wondering if there’s any way to listen to it on my television? Can you help? — Tom, Cleveland.

Tom, as you know, SiriusXM radio is a subscription radio service that offers more than 140 channels featuring music, sports, weather and news, among other categories. The most popular way to listen to Sirius is in your car. Many automakers have partnered with Sirius to feature it in their dashboards along with AM, FM and other audio services.

However, there are also several ways to listen to Sirius in your home, including your television.

Click Amazon: Roku Express: Just $29

For starters, Sirius is available on the Internet via computers, smart phones and tablets. Until this month, you would need an ‘All Access’ Sirius subscription, which normally costs a few dollars more per month, to listen to the audio service on the Net. But Sirius has just made its online edition available to Select subscribers as well. That means any Sirius sub can now listen online.

To access the online Sirius on TV, you can download a Sirius app on select Smart TVs from LG, Samsung and Sony and listen to it right on your television. Once you download the app, you will be asked on-screen to type in your Sirius account name and password.

The app is also available on many streaming devices such as Roku.

Finally, Dish, the satellite TV service, offers 72 channels of Sirius for $6 a month. However, please note that this is not the complete Sirius lineup, which exceeds 140 channels.

Happy listening!
